AMD has recently announced the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor lineup which are powered by the new “Zen 3” architecture. The Ryzen 5000 series features the top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 5950X which has 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 9 5900X is the highest end of the three main models, and it offers up to a 26% faster gaming on average as compared to previous-gen CPUs.

In fact, the new AMD “Zen 3” core architecture delivers a 19% generational increase in instructions per cycle (IPC), the largest since the introduction of “Zen” processors in 2017.

Of the CPUs in the lineup, the Ryzen 9 5950X is no doubt the processor of choice for gamers/content creators who want the best possible performance. After all, the 5950X offers the highest single-thread performance of any desktop gaming processor. Plus, the 5950X has the most multi-core performance of any desktop gaming processor and any desktop processor in a mainstream CPU socket.

The Ryzen 9 5900X is no slouch either, with the said processor being 7% faster in 1080p gaming across select game titles on average compared to the competition.
