The Ryzen 5000 processor series consists of four models: 16 cores Ryzen 9 5950X, 12 cores Ryzen 9 5900X, 8 cores Ryzen 7 5800X and 6 cores Ryzen 5 5600X. All of these processors will go on sale from November 5th. The main characteristics are given in the table:
Second, AMD did not hesitate to increase the official prices of the Ryzen 5000. Representatives of the Ryzen 3000 family with the same number of cores cost $ 50 less at the time of their announcement.
However, AMD believes it has the right to do so because processors based on the Zen 3 architecture have become much faster than their predecessors. The presentation states that the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X is an impressive 26% faster than Ryzen 9 3900XT games, and the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X can be called the processor with the best single and multi-stream performance of all mass offerings.
In addition, according to AMD, gaming performance is no longer a weak point for their products compared to Intel processors. About the same, the Ryzen 9 5900X company claims that in games with 1080p resolution, it is on average 7% ahead of the Core i9-10900K.This significant progress is due to significant changes at the internal structure level: the unified CCX modules now consist of eight cores and include 32 MB of L3 cache. This reduces the data transfer delay between the kernel and the cache memory and doubles the amount of cache memory addressed to the L3 per core.
According to internal tests, this, combined with microarchitectural improvements to the Zen 3 cores, has led to a 19% increase in instructions per cycle (IPC).
Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager of customer business at AMD, commented: "The new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors strengthen our leadership from IPC and energy efficiency to single-core and multi-core performance, including gaming."
Ryzen 5000 series processors can work with motherboards with 500 series chipsets after a simple BIOS upgrade to AGESA 220.127.116.11-based versions (coming soon). Support for motherboards based on the 400 series processors is under development, and the first motherboards with Ryzen 5000-compatible BIOS beta versions will be released in 2021. month of January.
