AMD Ryzen 5000 processors are coming this November

The AMD Ryzen 5000 processors are now official. The newly announced processors are arriving this November 5.

CEO Lisa Su unveiled the AMD Ryzen 5000 series chips in an online event. Su talked about the power of these processors and how “gaming begins with AMD.”

AMD revealed four processors during the event. The Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and the mid-range Ryzen 5 5600X.

Processor specs and price

The online event tackled the Ryzen 9 5900X first, as its the current flagship processor of AMD. The new processor has 12 cores, 24 threads, and a 4.8Ghz boost. All these specs are packed in a 105W TDP chipset.

AMD showcased an impressive benchmark with the 5900X having a 26% performance gain over the previous generation processors.

Interested gamers may get the 5900X for only US$549, which is a steal considering the massive bump in performance.

AMD Ryzen CPU prices

Moving on to content creators, Su showcased the Ryzen 9 5950X. The workhorse processor has 16 cores, 32 threads with a 4.9Ghz boost clock. It also has 105W TDP.

This processor is more expensive at $799. However, it is a target for creators who need massive multicore performance.

Budget gamers are greeted with the Ryzen 7 5800X and the Ryzen 5 5600X.

The 5800X has eight cores and 16 threads and runs at 3.8Ghz with boosts up to 4.7Ghz. It works the same as the other flagships with 105W TDP.

The Ryzen 7 5800X is priced at $449.

Meanwhile, the 5600X has six cores and 12 threads running at 3.7Ghz with boosts up to 4.6Ghz. It is priced at $299.

First-party benchmarks should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if proven true, then the AMD Ryzen 9 benchmarks are a massive leap in performance.

The only problem lies in the lower end Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5. The price might be a little to steep in comparison to the previous generation.

Nonetheless, it is still too early to judge these processors. Once third-party AMD Ryzen benchmarks are out, it will be easier to judge which CPU to get.
