AMD Launches New Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors

AMD finally provides the world with more information about the much-anticipated next generation Ryzen 5000 series processors. AMD decides to skip the “Ryzen 4000” name to prevent confusions with the older Zen 2-based laptop processors.

The new CPUs are the first to be equipped with latest Zen 3 micro-architecture, which will be on the same TSMC 7 nm fabrication node. Compared to previous Zen 2, Zen 3 is able to offer a higher maximum boost clock, about 19% better Instructions Per Clock/Cycle (IPC) and improved power efficiency.

The Zen 3 architecture also features a completely different Core Complex (CCX) and cache layout. The eight CPU cores inside a CCX can access the one large L3 cache, without using the Infinity Fabric across separate cache locations. This can dramatically reduce memory latency, while basically doubling the size of the cache for each core.

AMD will be releasing a total of four Ryzen 5000 series processors on 5th November. The Ryzen 9 5950X is the most powerful one with 16 cores, 32 threads and can boost up to 4.9 GHz. They are fully compatible with existing and future 500 series motherboards, with X570 and B550 chipsets.
