AMD officially introduced the new Ryzen 5000 desktop CPU series last night with Zen 3 architecture with improved IPC up to 19%, up to 16 cores and clock speed up to 4.9 GHz for outstanding single-thread performance. dominant.
Last year, with AMD Ryzen 3000, although the performance was completely superior to its rival Intel, but in terms of single-thread, it was still limited due to the low clock speed, this year AMD has completely overcome the weakness. That point on the Ryzen 5000 series.

Some manufacturers have even confirmed that some 300 series boards are compatible through a BIOS update. This helps users who want to upgrade to a new CPU line at no extra cost to buy a motherboard.
With the new line of processors, AMD also says that the IPC (simply the same clock speed, higher IPC, higher performance) has been improved by 19%, especially the new Zen 3 architecture brings to outstanding gaming performance and content creation. The new architecture also reduces processor-core communication latency, while doubling direct-accessible L3 cache per core, up to 2.8x efficiency per watt. manual.
The changes in performance mostly come from the optimized architecture, optimized cache, CCX core cluster design with 8 cores, instead of 4 cores like previous Zen series. If you do not know, there may be 1 or more clusters in each CPU, before a 16-core chip would have 4 clusters, the more clusters there are, the higher the latency. As for the production process, the AMD Ryzen 5000 is still based on 7nm, not 7nm + as previously rumored.
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X most advanced
Topping the list is AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores, 32 threads and a price tag of $ 799. This chip has 72MB total cache and 105W TDP. The clock speed can reach 4.9GHz, giving both single-core and multi-core performance exceptional.
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
Slightly lower we have the Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores, 24 threads, clocked at 3.7 – 4.8GHz, 70MB cache and a TDP 105W. The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X will retail at $ 549, which is $ 50 more than the Ryzen 9 3900XT.
Compared to the Intel Core i9-10900K, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X delivers up to 15% more powerful single-threaded performance in Cinebench R20, up to 21% higher gaming performance.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8-core and 16-thread CPU, recommended by AMD as the best 8 CPU on the market for gamers with a clock speed of 3.8 – 4.7GHz. The chip has a total cache of 36MB and a TDP of 105W, the declared price of which is $ 449.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
In the mid-range segment, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has 6 cores and 12 threads, AMD says it’s the best 6-core processor on the market for gamers with a clock speed of 3.7 – 4.6GHz, total memory 36MB buffer and 65W TDP. The CPU is expected to cost $ 299.
