AMD unveils the world’s best gaming processor
AMD has announced its new Ryzen 5000 series of processors for desktop computers.
This group is the first to build on the next generation of Zen 3 architecture. The new AMD gaming processor belongs to Ryzen 5000 series which represents AMD’s largest desktop chip so far.
AMD is setting high expectations, promising that the new Ryzen 5900X is the best gaming CPU in the world.
About the new chipset of the AMD gaming processor
The new chipset will be available starting at $ 299 for the Ryzen 5 5600X on November 5th.
These new models replace last year’s Zen 2 architecture-based Ryzen 3000 desktop chips.
The new Ryzen 5000 processors use a 7-nanometer manufacturing process, but offer a 19 percent increase in instructions per cycle, along with a complete redesign of the chip layout and an increase in the maximum boost speed.
The new chipset goes directly to the brand (Ryzen 5000) to avoid any confusion between the new (Zen 3) chips with the desktop chipset (Ryzen 4000) based on (Zen 2).
And (AMD) says: The replacement of (Zen 2) processors with (Zen 3) models is comparable, as the new chips are compatible with old motherboards after a firmware update, and lead to an improvement of 26 percent on average for customers, while maintaining On the basic numbers.
AMD is starting with four new Zen 3 CPUs:
- Ryzen 9 5950X, $ 799, with 16 cores and 4.9GHz max boost.
- Ryzen 9 5900X is $ 549 with 12 cores and 4.8GHz max boost.
- Ryzen 7 5800X is $ 449 with 8 cores and 4.7GHz max boost.
- Ryzen 5 5600X, $ 299, with 6 cores and 4.6GHz max boost
Notably, these chips received a $ 50 price increase compared to the original prices for similar (Zen 2) units from 2019.
All four new CPUs are available as of November 5th. And AMD directly competes with Intel through the new lineup, in particular the (Core i9-10900K) model, which Intel previously boasted of as the fastest gaming processor in the world.
The company also points to the benchmarks, claiming that the Ryzen 9 5900X outperforms Intel’s Core i9-10900K in live performance for a wide range of games, such as (League of Legends) and (Dota 2).
The new CPU needs a new graphics processing unit to go along with it, and AMD has teased the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards based on the next generation of RDNA 2 architecture.
The new cards are supposed to be AMD’s answer to Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs.
The company promises that the new cards will be able to play high-resolution 4K games, with a time of more than 60 frames per second in ultra-gaming settings.
