We already have among us the new AMD Ryzen 5000 processors, a generation that directly faces its current Intel competitors leaving them in a very complicated position.
The new AMD Ryzen 5000 have focused on efficiency improvements and latency, with the new design of the Zen 3 core we have a 19% increase in the IPC (instructions per cycle). Undoubtedly one of the weaknesses of this architecture and that required a significant improvement, with this new generation this area has been enhanced without doubt.
Within the new range AMD Ryzen 5000 is undoubtedly the most spectacular is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the top of the range of AMD with 16 cores and 32 threads that operates at a maximum frequency of 4.9 GHz, all with a TDP consumption of only 105 W. A processor for the most demanding, together with the Ryzen 9 5900X, which has a considerable price reduction.
In the low range we have the Ryzen 5 5600X that offers us with only 65 W TPD a processor with 6 cores and 12 threads reaching a frequency of 4.6 GHz, sure to be one of the most sold among the most realistic gaming sector.
|Model||Cores / Threads||TDP||Boost / Base Freq (GHz)||Cache (MB)||Price|
|AMD Ryzen 9 5950X||16C/32T||105W||Up to 4.9 / 3.4 GHz||72||$799|
|AMD Ryzen 9 5900X||12C/24T||105W||Up to 4.8 / 3.7 GHz||70||$549|

|AMD Ryzen 5 5600X||6C/12T||65W||Up to 4.6 / 3.7 GHz||35||$299|
The first results in the first reviews by some websites point to a considerable improvement in performance, we are undoubtedly facing a major leap in improving efficiency. We have higher figures than equivalent processors such as the Intel Core i7-10700k in the high range. All this improvement in performance has a critical point in terms of competition, price with respect to rivals and against the previous 3000 series that was much cheaper to start with.
