They are already here. Just in time for the next generation of video games that kicks off with the launch of Xbox Series X and PS5. AMD has introduced the most powerful PC gaming processors on the market. With a little more delay than expected, AMD has presented its new AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop processors that debut the new Zen 3 architecture. They will become the new object of desire for PC gamers. These are four new processors with up to 16 cores and 32 threads and up to 4.9 Ghz in Boost mode, which promise to be the most powerful gaming processors on the market. This new generation presents an improvement in the IPC of almost 20% compared to the Ryzen 3000, that is, at the same speed the Ryzen 5000 can execute almost 20% more instructions. They also have a performance per watt up to 40% higher. The TDP stays at 105W. These improvements are possible thanks to the new Zen 3 architecture, which proposes a complete redesign of the CPU memory cache. The way the CPU cores access their ultra-fast cache memory, to speed up all processes. Zen 3 allows each core to access more cache, allowing for improved performance. Here you can see the complete presentation: At the moment the new range of AMD gaming processors consists of four CPUs: a Ryzen 5, a Ryzen 7, and two Ryzen 9. These are the characteristics of the AMD Ryzen 5000, as well as the price in United States. At the moment prices have not been filtered in Spain: Characteristics Ryzen 5 5600X Ryzen 7 5800X Ryzen 9 5900X Ryzen 9 5950X Technology FinFET 7 nm FinFET 7 nm FinFET 7 nm FinFET 7 nm Cores 6 8 12 16 Threads 12 16 24 32 Base speed 3 , 7 GHz 3.8 GHz 3.7 GHz 3.4 GHz Boost speed (Turbo) 4.6 GHz 4.7 GHz 4.8 GHz 4.9 GHz TDP 65W 105W 105W 105W Heatsink included Wraith Stealth No No No Price 299 dollars 449 dollars 549 dollars 799 dollars Release date November 5 November 5 November 5 November 5 An important fact is that, contrary to what happened in previous generations, most Ryzen 5000 do not include the heatsink. Only the cheapest model has it, the Ryzen 5 5600X. In the rest you have to buy it separately, which increases the price a bit. The most affordable model, and also the one that gives off the least heat (TDP 65W), and therefore less consumption, is the Ryzen 5 5600X. With 6 cores and 12 threads at 3.7 GHz, heatsink included and a price of 299 dollars (about 350 euros in Spain), it is sure to become the best-seller in the range. Gamers who also do other tasks while playing games, such as sending streaming or recording video, will surely opt for the Ryzen 7 5800X, which has 8 cores and 16 threads and a price of about 500 euros.

The Ryzen 9 5900X was the first processor in history to exceed 600 points in the Cinebench R20 single-thread benchmark, beating the Intel Core i9-10900K, which has a similar price, by 7%, about 600 euros. But the star of the new family is the Ryzen 9 5950X. With its 16 cores and 32 threads and a 4.9 GHz Boost speed, it is 27% faster than the Ryzen 9 3950X.

Once again AMD is once again ahead of the Intel Core in performance, but the price is catching up. These new processors will go on sale on November 5. The Ryzen 5000 will work on any AMD 500 series motherboard and will be the perfect complement to the new RX 6000 cards (based on the chips that use Xbox Series X and PS5), which will be introduced on October 28.
