Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) introduced the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor lineup powered by the new "Zen 3" architecture. Offering up to 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache in the top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors dominate in heavily threaded workloads1 and power efficiency2, while the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor offers up to a 26% generational uplift in gaming performance3. With extensive improvements throughout the core including a unified 8-core complex with direct access to 32 MB L3 cache, the new AMD "Zen 3" core architecture delivers a 19% generational increase in instructions per cycle (IPC)4, the largest since the introduction of "Zen" processors in 2017.

"Our commitment with each generation of our Ryzen processors has been to build the best PC processors in the world. The new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors extend our leadership from IPC4, power efficiency2 to single-core5, multi-core performance1 and gaming6," said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit, AMD. "Today, we are extremely proud to deliver what our community and customers have come to expect from Ryzen processors - dominant multi-core1 and single-core performance5 and true gaming leadership6 - all within a broad ecosystem of motherboards and chipsets that are drop-in ready for AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors."



AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors
Featuring a remarkable 19% IPC increase4 over the prior generation in PC workloads, the "Zen 3" architecture pushes gaming and content creation performance leadership6,1 to a new level. "Zen 3" architecture reduces latency from accelerated core and cache communication and doubles the directly accessible L3 cache per core while delivering up to 2.8X more performance-per-watt versus the competition2.

The top of the line 16 core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X offers:

Really juicy prices, well, AMD Ryzen 5000 series is now the world leader in gaming performance so if you want the best...

AMD Ryzen 5000 series prices make it possible for Intel to be attractive at fairly high prices. So prices for CPUs will not go down very much any time soon. Intel may lower prices around 15-20% beginning of next year but I think they will keep their current prices levels until xmas at least.

BUT we will probably have some really good 8th and 9th gen Intel CPU deals on Black Friday and also a fire sale on Ryzen 3000 series at the same time.

----------------------------------

NO NEED TO CANCEL YOUR RTX 3080 ORDERS AND IF YOU HAVE NOT ORDERED YOUR RTX 3080 YET, DO IT NOW, IT WILL BE A HEFTY PRICE HIKE FAIRLY SOON.

BIG Navi, not so impressive at 88FPS in Modern Warfare Ultra 4K, this is around 3070 or 3070Ti performance.

Checked out the 3080 with i9-10900K, doing well over 100FPS in Modern Warfare Ultra 4K and on top of that 3080 should do even better paired with the Ryzen 5000 series.

It is what it is, with BIG Navi it all comes down to pricing, it will probably hit $499-599 price range depending on memory size and compete with 3070 or 3070Ti.

3080 and 3090 will be the undisputed performance kings in gaming for the foreseeable future and we will probably see an even further price hike of 3080 cards due to no competition in combination with the extreme shortage. The new normal for 3080 partner cards will be around or over the $1000 price tag.

Just too bad BIG Navi wasn't a better performer, now nvidia have no reason to release 3080Ti until Q3 2021

Once again AMD cannot reach all the way up to the high end GPU segment. At this point I do not think they are interested in the high end segment anymore. They repeatedly said that over 80% of GPU sales are in the mid and low end segment so I think their focus will remain there.


ALSO don't forget Intel is entering the GPU gaming market in the mid and low end segment around Q2 or Q3 2021. To take market share Intel MUST be price aggressive so I think the best is yet to come in 2021 with regards to the GPU market.

Let me be brutally honest. AMD is no different than Intel in terms of dictating prices when they have the performance crown.

The pricing for the Ryzen 5000 series:

5600X: $300 - very close to the price of the 3700X which featured two more cores.
5800X: $450
5900X: $550
5950X: $800

All priced $50 higher than their Ryzen 3000 counterparts. What's more, there's no sign of 5700X which was a sweet spot for the previous gen Ryzen CPUs. Either you pay $50 more for the 3600X alternative or you have to pay whopping $120 more to get just two more cores.

Customers first, my ass. More like profits first now that Intel still cannot solve their 10nm node.
To add to my previous post: I hate when people choose companies - you should choose products and root for healthy competition and AMD now has perfectly shown that when competition falters, customers get punished hard. I've been eagerly waiting for the Ryzen 5000 series but now I'm hesitating whether to upgrade from my 3700X. A performance uplift is great but the cost of the upgrade is not palatable at all. There's no way I will be able to sell my 3700X for $330 I bought it for. At most I'll get $200 for it on the secondary market. Paying $250 to get 20% more performance? I don't know.

in the end AMD is a business, if the claims of being fastest in the world in gaming is true then why can't they charge for it the way Intel did for years?
AMD fans never fail to disappoint with double standards. Intel and NVIDIA have always been "evil" but once AMD does that, suddenly it's perfectly fine because they just follow suit.

Boost clocks on the 5800X and 3800XT are the same.

Thats a shame.

I get the IPC increase, but a little disappointing.

The actual MHz or GHz number do not really matter if performance is there. Or else, you know, old bulldozer or P4 are still well know to be OC to very High GHz

What's up with the cache sizes? 35 vs 36 MB?

This is L2 + L3

They both have 32 MB of L3 shared to all core. They have 512 kb of L2 per core. So 5600x have 2 less core so 1 MB less.

Your post may have valid if AMD CPUs didn't sell for 30~50% of their launch MSRP, perhaps even lower for some 1st gen Ryzen or TR chips, not to mention (nearly) 4 gens of chips on the same socket. But hey keep carrying on that cart if it makes you feel any better! The latest & greatest in tech always commands a premium, it's more about what you charge when you kinda don't need to :ohwell:

RIP Intel.

Pretty sure 5700X or 5800 non-X and a 5600 will launch early next year, once stock of the 3xxx has tapered.

Tbh upgrading every 1 generation has never been a good investment. If you're currently running 1st gen like me (1700X) or 2nd gen, it will be a leap upgrade.

And they even then didn't. 50$ over the previous gen when they seem to sweep the floor vs the competition is great value. And without increasing the power draw as some baseless rumors said lately.

I'd love get a 5900X, but it does not look like it will offer better performance/dollar than a 3900X at current prices, not to mention when Zen2 get's a price drop after Zen3 release.

So this change the choise for my CPU´s plans in my 2 in 1 pc. Had hoped for at 8 core 65 watt part. So for the Mini-ITX pc it will be either 5600X or 3700X as i need to keep TDP down do to cooler size limitation. So yeah i would have liked a 5700X part with 8 cores and 65 watt TDP.

ATX pc will be 5950X for sure.

Now the cons as i se it.
5950X 100 MHz lower base clock than 3950X has, that is a bit dissapointing. Also had hope for that magic 5 GHz single core boost clock.
Still only 3200 MHz memory official clock. So does that mean 3600 MHz is still the sweet spot:confused:. Had hornestly hoped for higher clock support like 3600 MHz official and 4000 MHz sweet spot.
No cooler with the chips accept 5600X and higher prices. Yeah that is not what i exspected. Well maybe not for 5950X, but not also for 5800X and 5900X. That will mean an ekstra exspence there.
Higher prices is never a good thing.
It seems AMD stick to X570 and B550 chipsæt. Not that it´s bad, but it also means no new features or more PCIe lanes on the chipsæt part.

Pros
19 %+ better IPC + around 200 MHz higher boost clock.
The new 8 core chiplet desing with out CCX is a good new feature and that all cores now can share all Level 3 cashe.
If the gaming performance claims are true, i am for sure going Zen 3. I will not wait for intel next 14 Nm 11 gen. So intel take this:nutkick:

So it seems my next CPU´s are 5600X/3700X and 5950X. Unless these dam scalpers do, what they dit to nvidia lauch. So soon little I7 980X, you can get a well diserved retirement and Covid-19 dont you dare ruining my plans again for a new PC.

Really juicy prices, well, AMD Ryzen 5000 series is now the world leader in gaming performance so if you want the best...

AMD Ryzen 5000 series prices make it possible for Intel to be attractive at fairly high prices. So prices for CPUs will not go down very much any time soon. Intel may lower prices around 15-20% beginning of next year but I think they will keep their current prices levels til xmas.

NO NEED TO CANCEL YOUR RTX 3080 ORDERS

BIG Navi, not so impressive at 88FPS in Modern Warfare Ultra 4K, this is probably around 3070 or 3070Ti performance.

Checked out the 3080 with i9-10900K, doing well over 100FPS in Modern Warfare Ultra 4K and on top of that 3080 should do even better paired with the Ryzen 5000 series.

With BIG Navi it all comes down to pricing, it will probably hit $499-599 price range depending on memory size.

3080 and 3090 will be the undisputed performance kings in gaming for the foreseeable future.
What. There's quite a few videos on the web with a 10900k/3080 @ 4k high settings doing ~90 fps. Warzone tends to average around 80 with RTX on, and 85 with it off. Regardless, we won't know how Big Navi performs until the 28th at the earliest, so I wouldn't be tossing out things like that until then.
