Probably both, the process doesn't improve power usage sufficiently and may have a worse frequency/power curve, while the design clearly is not optimized for that node. AMD warned before that getting high frequencies is harder on smaller nodes. N7 seems to handle it well, N5 may take more time to reach a similar level.Is it because of the process or the design?
Hm, looking around for similar CPU/RAM frequencies memory read is essentially the same as Zen 2, latency down ~5ns. L1 and L2 cache bandwidths are hugely improved, look like nearly 3 times that of Zen 2 which points to Zen 3 cores having its Load/Store redesigned to match (and surpass?) what Intel was offering all along. L3 cache bandwidth seems that of a single chiplet Zen 2 chip, but improved between ~6% (read) and ~26% (write).no one posted this ?
latency looks alright
