Although the launch lasted less than half an hour, AMD surprised us. In the past, the company has emphasized multi-core performance, but this time it can finally grab Intel’s title of “fastest gaming processor” in single-core performance.

In terms of models, amD Rye 5000 Series CPUs have IPC performance improvements of up to 19%. The debut Zen 3 desktop processor includes four SKUs: R9-5950X, R9-5900X, R7-5800X, and R5-5600X.

With consumer options for up to 16 cores / 32 threads, the three-stage cache has supported full sharing of multiple CCD modules (improved latency), the main frequency has been further increased to 4.9GHz, and the performance per watt is 2.8 times higher than that of Intel’s competition.

On the motherboard side, in addition to the 500 Series chipset that was the first to be updated, AMD will also push the BIOS update for the 400 Series board in January next year.
