AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Desktop Processors

Posted by Dave Hohen on

Last week AMD announced the upcoming Ryzen 5000 CPU’s based on new Zen 3 architecture.  The initial release on November 5th will include four CPU’s.

Ryzen 5 5600X 6 Cores 12 Threads Base Clock 3.7GHz Max Boost Clock up to 4.6GHz TDP 65W
Ryzen 7 5800X 8 Cores 16 Threads Base Clock 3.8GHz Max Boost Clock up to 4.7GHz TDP 105W
Ryzen 9 5900X  12 Cores 24 Threads Base Clock 3.7GHz  Max Boost Clock up to 4.8GHz  TDP 105W
Ryzen 9 5950X   16 Cores 32 Threads Base Clock 3.7GHz Max Boost Clock up to 4.9GHz TDP 105W



AMD are boasting a 19% IPC improvement over the current Ryzen 3000 series, increased efficiency and single core performance that surpasses Intel’s current offerings.
Independent testing and reviews will be available on November 5th and if the announcement information is correct, AMD should not only retain the crown for the best multi-core performance but also claim the crown for the best desktop gaming CPU.



We are looking forward to getting our hands on these processors and configuring some gaming PC’s with Ryzen 5000!
