AMD has just announced the new Ryzen 5000 series processors for desktops, which are also the first of the company to feature the next generation Zen 3 architecture and represent the biggest leap for AMD desktop chips to date.
AMD also has high expectations, promising that the new Ryzen 5900X series is nothing short of the "best gaming CPU in the world". The new processors will be available from $ 299 for the original Ryzen 5 5600X on November 5.
Like last year's Zen 3000 chips based on last year, the new 2 series processors still use AMD's 5000nm process, but offer a 7% increase in instruction per cycle, along with a complete redesign of the chip layout for higher maximum thrust speed.
AMD starts with four new Zen 3 processors. There is a flagship model Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores, 32 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4,9GHz that costs $ 799. The Ryzen 9 5900X has 12 cores, 32 threads and a max boost speed of 4,8GHz (costs $ 549). For $ 449 you can get the Ryzen 7 5800X, with eight cores, 16 threads and a max boost speed of 4,7GHz. At $ 299 there is the Ryzen 5 5600X, with six cores, 12 threads and a max boost speed of 4,6GHz.
