AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3: models and technical features

The first CPUs of AMD's Ryzen 5000 series are here, the company led by Lisa Su is bringing the third generation of its Zen build, which will be commercially sold as a series of 5000 and not as 4000, so AMD takes a nomenclature that skips its processors and APUs.

AMD Ryzen 5000, technical details

AMD unveiled its range of Ryzen 5000 in two different features, on the other hand, introduced models of 5600X, 5800X and 5900X PC video game enthusiasts while R9 5950X focused on experts in multimedia content creation.

As its direct predecessor, the 3000 series, as 4000 were given to monolithic SoCs based on Zen 2, we are dealing with a family of processors based on chiplets where they are divided into various different chips. On the other hand, those chips are IO Die, which handles the internal connections of CCDs to each other, and the memory of RAM and built-in components, while CCDs are available with 8 CPU cores and their various private and shared storage.

In the case of a table set up, the total number of second and third levels is included.

Ryzen 5 5600X, younger brother of distance

It's a CPU for 6 cores and 12 fibers to make, with 35 MB of fully second and third level storage. Along with the Ryzen 7 5800X, it is one of two CPUs with two chiplets (CCD and IO Die), its consumption is 65 W, so it consumes the least, but its speed is not that low: at base speed. 3.7 GHz and operates in fast mode at 4.6 GHz.

As can be seen from the graph above, according to AMD this CPU achieves between 19% / price per Intel i5-100600K and 20% performance / price depending on multi-threaded processes. On the other hand, it is the CPU from the AMD 5000 range that gets more performance than its competitor in 1080P games, with an average power of 13%.

Ryzen 7 5800X, eight cores in the middle range

Like the Ryzen 5 5600X, we get a two-layer CPU (CCD and IO Die). A mid-range CPU set for AMD compared to the Intel i7-10700K, where you can see on the graph how slightly the Intel CPU is a little cheaper, but in performance / price we found that the Ryzen 7 5800X was 9% and 11 % faster in both single and one strands respectively.

In terms of its suspension, we are dealing with 8-core and 16-thread CPU running in 3.8 GHz clock speed and 4.7 GHz Boost, while its TDP according to AMD is 105W although it has only 2 chiplets configuration like the RX 5600X and operates at the same clock speed, the only difference being the two additional characters running the R7 5800X with 1 MB additional cache, 36 MB.

Ryzen 9 5900X, a 12-core PC game enthusiast

Like its older sister, Ryzen 9 5950X, we are in the process of configuring 3 chiplets (2 CCD and IO Die), this time with There are 12 active cores so 24 thread to make and 70 MB of cache. The total cache value is 70 MB, its use is 105 W and can be accessed 4.8 GHz speed in boost mode with a base speed of 3.7 GHz.

AMD compares it to the Intel Core 9-10900K where the Intel chip is $ 20 cheaper, but AMD wins by 13% with one thread and 23% on multiple threads.

Ryzen 9 5950X, on top of the lines of content professionals

We are responsible for the complete configuration of 3 chiplets (2 CCDs and IO Die) because it is a configuration of 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache. AMD did not disclose the basic clock speed, but we would expect it to be 3.7 to 3.9 GHz, but Boost 4.9 GHz and spower consumption is also 105 W.

In terms of performance, AMD compares it to the Intel Core 9-10900K, but unlike other CPUs it makes a comparison of speed when the data is so impressive that an additional 59% gives the V-Ray space. It can be seen that in content creation apps there is a much higher profit than in games, the reason for this is that games are not ready to measure up to 16 cores and therefore take a very small profit of 16 cores and 32 threads of this processor

AMD Ryzen 5000 – Compatible with 400 and 500 mother boards

AMD has confirmed that matching motherboards with their new CPUs they will be 400 series and 500 series, so the socket and platform are the same as the Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000.

However, to support motherboards, BIOS updates with AGESA 1.1.0 continue to be required, this update will be available on release date new CPUs; November 5th. While the revival of the 400 series will take a while and will come from January 2021.
