On yesterday's day, Lisa Su presented the annual conference dedicated to new upcoming branded products AMD, bringing to the table interesting data related to the new Ryzen 5000 CPUs.
Starting from the new top of the range, Ryzen 9 5950X prepares to provide the top performance related to gaming thanks to its 16 cores and 32 threads, a maximum clock speed of up to 4.9 GHz, 72MB of L2 + L3 Cache and its consumption of 105W and with a launch scheduled for the next November 5, 2020. Alongside it, AMD will release the 5900X (12 cores / 24 threads), 5800X (8 cores / 16 threads) and 5600X (6 cores / 12 threads) CPUs.
Speaking of performance, this new series of CPUs will obviously lead to an improvement over the previous series (Ryzen 3000) which in the case of the 5900X will reach up to 50%. Also, comparing the same CPU with its counterpart Intel Core i9-10900K, we see a maximum improvement of the 20%, getting the better of his blue cousin.
But that's not all! After the end of the event, Lisa Su let slip (behind closed doors) a small preview of the benchmarks related to Big Ships, the new series of AMD RX 6000 CPUs. According to these data, the new video card would be able to guarantee a frame rate over 60 fps in 4K at maximum details on games like Gears 5, Borderlands 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, using obviously the DirectX 12.
Currently, no further details have been provided on this new RX 6000 series, however some rumors do reveal the arrival of a new dedicated event next. October 28, 2020. What will happen? Will AMD have new Nvidia cards in its sights? Will we talk about raytracing? We'll find out in a few weeks.
