You have questions, I have questions, we all have questions about AMD's recently announced Ryzen 5000 series, and specifically regarding how actual performance stacks up with the company's claim of a 19 percent IPC (instructions per clock) uplift over the Ryzen 3000 series. Reliable answers will have to wait until the reviews are posted. Waiting is hard, though, and while caution should be taken when looking at unofficial benchmark runs, there is another set of interesting results to digest, this time within SiSoftware's SANDRA database. This latest round of leaked data follows the recent discovery of Zen 3 benchmark results within the Cinebench R20 database, which we wrote about earlier this... Read more...
Yowza! AMD made some bold claims during the unveiling of its Ryzen 5000 series, which will land on retail shelves next month. According to AMD, its upcoming Zen 3 chips are "the fastest gaming CPUs in the world," a boast that belonged to Intel up to this point. But is Zen 3 all that and a bag of sea salt and vinegar kettle cooked potato chips? Well, some early benchmark results on Cinebench R20 are certainly tasty. We'll get to the benchmark numbers in a moment, but first let's recap the Ryzen 5000 series lineup. AMD is kicking off the Zen 3 party with four chips: Ryzen 9 5950X ($799), Ryzen 9 5900X ($549), Ryzen 7 5800X ($449), and Ryzen 5 5600X ($299, with a Wraith Stealth air cooler included)....

If there is one thing that can make 'Taco Tuesday' even better it's a delicious chip. Or in this case, a chip leak, for what is purported to be an upcoming Zen 3 processor from AMD, which has found its way into the Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking database, where it shows a strong IPC (instructions per clock) gain, and perhaps a new "parallel single threading" capability. There is a bit to chew on here, so let's start with the CPU model. What is shown in the database entries is purportedly an unreleased (and unannounced) Ryzen 7 5800X processor. This is presumed to be from AMD's upcoming Zen 3 stack (Vermeer on the desktop), with 8 cores and 16 threads, at unidentified clockspeeds. Zen 3... Read more...
In exactly three weeks, AMD will unveil its Zen 3 lineup during a scheduled press event (October 8), followed by announcing its Radeon RX 6000 series toward the end of next month (October 28). We have questions, and AMD presumably has answers. One of them is what specific processors are on tap, and according to a new leak, AMD will be unveiling a Ryzen 5000 series for the desktop, not Ryzen 4000. This needs to happen, as far as I am concerned. I am fully aware that skipping ahead to Ryzen 5000 might irk some people, but I would argue it is needed, to make things less confusing among AMD's different product lines. Specifically, the Ryzen 4000 series already exists in mobile APU form, but the underlying... Read more...
