AMD has introduced its new Ryzen 5000 processors with Zen 3 architecture, a new version in which the focus has been placed on an overall improvement in performance per cycle that jumps to +19% IPC. These processors continue with the manufacturing process at 7nm but present a new design of its internal cores, unifies the cache and increases the maximum speed of work.
After the great success of Zen 2 both in desktop and portals AMD has a fairly comfortable position in front of its rival Intel that will have to run to catch it, especially if they remain much longer anchored in its 14nm design. Let’s see what the Ryzen 5000 with Zen 3 architecture has to offer.
These new AMD Ryzen 5000 have focused on improvements in efficiency 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.
In the new redistribution presented in the following image we can see how the L3 cache has been unified to 32MB, now we have in a CCX block (CPU + Cache) eight cores and twice the amount of undivided L3 cache. With this new design it seems that we will have improved performance figures that will exceed the current 10th generation Intel.
Within the processors presented, without a doubt the most spectacular is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, the top of the AMD range with 16 cores and 32 threads that works 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 wires 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 7 5800X||8C/16T||105W||Up to 4.7 / 3.8 GHz||36||$449|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600X||6C/12T||65W||Up to 4.6 / 3.7 GHz||35||$299|
The improvement in performance in games seems very interesting as we can see in the data provided by AMD. The focus on this sector is very interesting and the motto of this presentation has been “Where Gaming Begins“, a declaration of intentions.
It is clear that the Gaming sector has meant a very important push in the hardware market and AMD does not want to lose the opportunity to take over the performance crown. Many users will select these processors to mount their new equipment, without a doubt.
We will have the new Ryzen 5000 on sale next November 5th, although it is to be expected that with a limited stock, without a doubt a new range of processors that puts more pressure on Intel that does not leave its 14nm.
This presentation has concluded with a small performance demo of the new Radeon 6000 GPUs that will be presented next October 28, we will be attentive because it will be worth seeing them in conjunction with these new Ryzen 5000.
