AMD announced a new line of high-end, high-performance, and faster Ryzen processors powered by the new Zen 3 architecture. This new line of Zen-3 processors, known as the Ryzen 5000 series, aims to keep AMD at the top of the CPU market and extend the company’s lead over Intel, Nvidia, Samsung, Intel Corp and Samsung Electronics. AMD’s Ryzen 5 processor series was announced at an online event that really grabbed our attention.
AMD’s Ryzen 5000 design delivers a boost over Zen-3 and comes with a price less than half that of its predecessor’s Ryzen 5 series. The Ryzen5000 processor is in the same price range as its predecessors, but delivers twice as much power and twice as much efficiency.
AMD seems to have raised the price of the part number by 50%, and as a result Intel’s Comet Lake CPUs now have the same performance as the Ryzen 5 series, but at a lower price. In the desktop market, AMD offers consumers the highest single-threaded performance of any processor in the latest generation of Ryzen processors. AMD’s single-threaded performance continues to rise to 640 points, an increase of 1,000 points over last year’s Ryzen 4 series.
It’s worth noting that AMD’s thread ripper CPUs, if you’re looking for the best rendering performance, are slightly more expensive than Intel’s Comet Lake processors, but they’re for those on a tight budget. If you’re looking for a lower-cost system with a high-end graphics card and a single-threaded processor, AMD’s “new” Ryzen 5000 series is the way to go.
AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processors have 16 cores and 32 threads, but if you switch for any reason, this will be the first chip to bear the “new” name of “Ryzen 5000.” Intel’s Comet Lake processors, the Core i5 and i7 – 6700K, have 8 and 6 cores, respectively.
AMD did not launch a new chipset for the Ryzen 5000 series, but dropped the CPU directly into the existing chipset of the 500 series. AMD has promised that current x570 and b550 motherboards will work perfectly with the new Ryzen 5000 series processors, and if you have a board manufacturer, you are ready for this next generation of CPU. All in all, we now know that AMD is not launching any new chipsets with this Ryzen5000 series.
The Ryzen 5900X surpassed Intel’s i9 – 10900K processor in our single – threaded benchmark, and AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series is great in terms of the fastest CPU, depending on how well a particular application of photogrammetry is equipped with threads. AMD seems to be highlighting the performance of the Ryzen series in almost every title, whether in graphics, graphics or video processing. In almost all of these titles there is a significant power difference between the processors at the top and bottom of the line.
AMD has also tested the performance of the Ryzen 5900X and Ryzen 5000 series under VRM load and confirmed that they are virtually identical, and we have tested them under the same workloads.
Overall, this is a big improvement over the previous generation and gives AMD a solid lead over Intel in most cases. AMD might be able to squeeze some extra performance advantages out of the Ryzen 5000 series when combined with the soon-to-be-available Intel Core i7 – 6700X processor, but overall it’s a bigger improvement over previous generations and does a good job of beating Intel CPUs at similarly low prices against Intel.
AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processors will be available on November 5th, and by then all 500 series mainboards should have a Zen 3 compatible BIOS. If you’re looking for a job with one of the new Ryzen CPUs, you can expect to see a significant number of systems migrating to the AMD Ryzen5000 series in the coming weeks. AMD is very successful with its Zen-3 architecture and when you look at the performance of its Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 4 processors, it is an excellent choice for workstations and gaming systems. Ryzen 3 will give AMD a huge boost in game saving performance and will give AMD’s Zen 3000 owners the incentive to upgrade.
