AMD has just announced a new lineup of its new chips for desktops. These are also the first chips which feature next-gen Zen 3 architecture. The new series is Ryzen 5000, which also represent one of the biggest jumps for desktop’s chips of AMD yet. There are high expectations and promises for the new series will be “the world’s best gaming CPU.” The new chips will be available on 5th of november and the starting price is $299.
Just like last year, the new series of processors use AMD’s 7nm process. However, they offer a 19 percent increase on instructions per cycle with a higher max boost speed. Also they provide complete redesign of chip layout.
To sum up, AMD is informing that by simply replacing a Zen 2 CPU with a comparable Zen 3 model will result in an average 26 % improvement for customers. Along with core counts and keeping TDP same.
AMD is starting with four new Zen 3 CPUs:
- top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 5950X model which consist of 32 threads and 16 cores. All this for $799 along with max boost speed of 4.9GHz
- the Ryzen 9 5900X having 32 threads and 12 cores. Along with max boost speed of 4.8GHz, all for $549.
- the Ryzen 7 5800X which contains 8 cores and 16 threads, and a max boost speed of 4.7GHz. All that for $449.
- the Ryzen 5 5600X, with 12 threads and 6 cores along with max boost speed of 4.6GHz. Only for $299
It is to be noted that each of these chips has gotten a $50 increase in price when compared with original prices of the Zen 2 CPUs of 2019.
AMD has also taken a direct shot at Intel. Their new lineup is supposed to be “the world’s fastest gaming processor.” Even if AMD’s chips are not at the level to beat Intel 10th Gen chips on sheer clock speed, they still offer many other advantages. These are thread count, a higher core and improved power efficiency.
