AMD has just announced its next-generation 7nm Zen 3 architecture-based Ryzen 5000 CPU lineup with up to 16 cores and 32 threads. The processor lineup features a brand new core technology & a lot of new features that enhance gaming performance along with delivering impressive IPC gains that crush the competition entirely.
MD Ryzen 5000 CPUs Announced – 7nm, Ryzen 9 Series With Up To 16 Cores, 32 Threads, 4.9 GHz Boost Clocks
During the official “Where Gaming Begins” keynote, CEO, Dr.Lisa Su, announced their next-generation Ryzen 5000 processors which are based on the new Zen 3 core architecture and compatible with existing AM4 motherboards based on the 500 & 400-series chipsets while manufacturers have independently confirmed that even some 300 series boards would be supported through a BETA BIOS.
AMD showcased various specifications & performance numbers for their Ryzen 5000 series lineup which comes in various core configurations aimed at different prices so let’s see what AMD has to offer to consumers later this fall.
MD Ryzen 9 5950X “Zen 3” Desktop CPU – 16 Cores / 32 Threads Up To 4.9 GHz For $799 US
Starting off with the top of the line parts, AMD is announcing the Ryzen 9 series which is made up of the Ryzen 9 5950X. The Ryzen 9 5950X is the flagship 16 core part which is aimed at users demanding heavy multi-threading performance on AM4 sockets. The chip has a total cache of 70 MB and a TDP of 105W. The chip features a boost clock of up to 4.9 GHz boost which when put together is just stunning for a 16 core part.
MD Ryzen 9 5900X “Zen 3” Desktop CPU – 12 Cores / 24 Threads Up To 4.8 GHz For $549 US
Starting off with the top of the line parts, AMD is announcing the Ryzen 9 series which is made up of the Ryzen 9 5900X. The Ryzen 9 5900X is the flagship 12 core part which is aimed at users demanding heavy multi-threading performance on AM4 sockets. The chip has a total cache of 70 MB and a TDP of 105W. The chip features a boost clock of up to 4.8 GHz boost which when put together is just stunning for a 12 core part.

MD Zen 3 Core Architecture Achieves 19% IPC Uplift
The AMD Ryzen 5000 lineup is based on the new Zen 3 core architecture which is made possible with TSMC’s bleeding-edge 7nm process node. The Zen 3 core architecture delivers a 19% uplift in terms of IPC over Zen 2 while also delivering higher performance per watt increases of up to 24% over Zen 2. Compared to Intel’s flagship Core i9-10900K, AMD’s Ryzen 9 CPUs based on the Zen 3 core architecture are up to 2.8x power efficient.
The AMD Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 AM4 CPU family, codenamed Vermeer, is designed for use in high-performance desktop platforms & will feature up to two CCD’s (Core/Cache Complex Dies) and a single IOD (I/O Die).
Unlike the previous generation design where each CCD comprised of two CCX’s (Core Complexes), the Zen 3 CCD will consist of a single CCX which will feature 8 cores that can run in either a single-thread mode (1T) or a two-thread mode (2T) for up to 16 threads per CCX. Since the chip houses a maximum of two CCDs, the core and thread count will max out at 16 cores and 32 threads which is the same as the existing flagship AM4 desktop CPU, the Ryzen 9 3950X.
Each Zen 3 core will feature 512 KB of L2 cache for a total of 4 MB of L2 cache per CCD. That should equal 8 MB of L2 cache on a dual CCD CPU. Along with the L2 cache, each CCD will also comprise of up to 32 MB of shared L3 cache. For Zen 2, the L3 cache was split between the two CCX’s with each CCX having their own separate (Up To) 16 MB cache. The size of the cache remains the same per CCD but now all cores can share a larger number of L3 cache.
Core Complex Die (CCD):Consists of one CCX
The CCX consists of:
Up to 8 cores where each core may run in single-thread mode (1T) or two-thread SMT mode (2T)
for a total of up to 16 threads per complex512KB of L2 per core for a total of 4MB L2 per CCDUp to 32MB of L3 shared across all cores within the complex
AMD demonstrated absolute dominance with its last generation Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 series desktop CPUs and we can expect the same to happen once Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs hit the retail shelves.
