AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Seri­es Desk­top Proces­sors built on new “Zen 3” core archi­tec­tu­re deli­ver across-the board lea­ders­hip per­for­mance for gamers and con­tent creators 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) intro­du­ced the high­ly anti­ci­pa­ted AMD Ryzen 5000 Seri­es desk­top pro­ces­sor lin­eup powe­red by the new “Zen 3” archi­tec­tu­re. Offe­ring up to 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache in the top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Ryzen 5000 seri­es pro­ces­sors domi­na­te in hea­vi­ly threa­ded workloads1 and power effi­ci­en­cy2, while the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X pro­ces­sor offers up to a 26% genera­tio­nal uplift in gaming per­for­mance3. With exten­si­ve impro­ve­ments throughout the core inclu­ding a uni­fied 8‑core com­plex with direct access to 32MB L3 cache, the new AMD “Zen 3” core archi­tec­tu­re deli­vers a 19% genera­tio­nal incre­a­se in inst­ruc­tions per cycle (IPC)4, the lar­gest sin­ce the intro­duc­tion of “Zen” pro­ces­sors in 2017.

Our com­mit­ment with each genera­ti­on of our Ryzen pro­ces­sors has been to build the best PC pro­ces­sors in the world. The new AMD Ryzen 5000 Seri­es Desk­top Pro­ces­sors extend our lea­ders­hip from IPC4, power effi­ci­en­cy2 to sin­gle-core5, mul­ti-core per­for­mance1 and gaming6,” said Saeid Mosh­ke­la­ni, seni­or vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, cli­ent busi­ness unit, AMD. “Today, we are extre­me­ly proud to deli­ver what our com­mu­ni­ty and cus­to­mers have come to expect from Ryzen pro­ces­sors – domi­nant mul­ti-core1 and sin­gle-core per­for­mance5 and true gaming lea­ders­hip6 — all wit­hin a broad eco­sys­tem of mother­boards and chip­sets that are drop-in rea­dy for AMD Ryzen 5000 Seri­es Desk­top Pro­ces­sors.”

Fea­turing a remar­kab­le 19% IPC incre­a­se4 over the pri­or genera­ti­on in PC workloads, the “Zen 3” archi­tec­tu­re pushes gaming and con­tent crea­ti­on per­for­mance lea­ders­hip6,1 to a new level. “Zen 3” archi­tec­tu­re redu­ces laten­cy from acce­le­ra­ted core and cache com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and dou­bles the direct­ly acces­si­ble L3 cache per core while deli­vering up to 2.8X more per­for­mance-per-watt ver­sus the com­pe­ti­ti­on2.

The top of the line 16 core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X offers:

  • The hig­hest sin­gle-thread per­for­mance of any desk­top gaming pro­ces­sor5
  • The most mul­ti-core per­for­mance of any desk­top gaming pro­ces­sor and any desk­top pro­ces­sor in a main­stream CPU socket1

The 12 core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X offers the best gaming expe­ri­ence by:

  • Average of 7% fas­ter in 1080p gaming across select game tit­les than the com­pe­ti­ti­on7
  • Average of 26% fas­ter in 1080p gaming across select tit­les genera­tio­nal­ly8
