AMD “Zen 3” – 5950X, 5900X, 5800X & 5600X Hit November 5th

The time has arrived, and today AMD officially announced the 5000 Series. The new line tops off with the 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen 9 5950X. AMD is claiming the best single core performance, best gaming performance and more. A key announcement was a geomean +19% gain in IPC. That’s a substantial gain for a generational upgrade relative to recent history. We’ll need to wait roughly another month for more number, but these chips look promising. Only the Ryzen 5 5600X will come bundled with a cooler, but let’s be honest, if you’re picking up a high end chip you’re likely to pair it up with high end cooling anyway.
