Earlier today, AMD’s official Youtube channel released a live streaming link to the next generation of Ryzen desktop processors with the headline “Where the game starts.” AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors.” This confirms that the next generation of desktop processors based on the Zen 3 architecture skipped the 4000 series and named the Ryzen 5000 series directly.
On the other hand, “Where the game starts” suggests that the game performance of the next generation of processors will improve significantly. And this is Intel’s last “fortress” right now.
In fact, the naming of the Ryzen 5000 series was reported back in August, when it was reported that the desktop APU, based on the Zen 2 architecture and codenamed Renoir, occupied many models of the 4000 series (e.g. 4700G, 4750G, etc.), and AMD wanted to break down the third-generation chips in the next higher digital series to highlight Zen 3’s innovations.
It was revealed that AMD will bring the first four models to the Ryzen 5000 series, including the Ryzen 9 5900X (12 core 24 threads), the Ryzen 7 5800X (8 core 16 threads), and the Ryzen 5 5600X (6 core 12 threads), as well as the top Ryzen 9 5950X (16 core 32 threads).
According to official forecasts, the AMD Ryzen 5000 series will be officially unveiled on October 8 at 11 a.m. Central Time (0 a.m. Beijing time on October 9).
