AMD has unveiled its new Gen 3 Raison 5000 processors, including the ‘Best Gaming CPU in the World’.

AMD has unveiled its new Gen 3 Raison 5000 processors, including the 'Best Gaming CPU in the World'.

AMD has announced its new lineup of Raison 5000 series processors for desktops, which also includes next-generation chips from the company with its next-generation Gen3 architecture and yet marks the biggest jump to AMD’s desktop chips.

AMD is also keeping expectations high, with the new Raison 5900X guaranteed to be no less than “the best gaming CPU in the world”. The new chips will be available on November 5 from 9 299 for the entry level Raison 5 5600X model.

Like Last year’s Gen 2 based Raizen 3000 desktop chips These new models will be replaced by the new 5000 series processors that still use AMD’s 7nm process, but with a full redesign of the chip layout and a maximum boost speed of up to 19% per cycle. (New chipsets are jumping straight into the Raison 5000 series branding to avoid the confusion of new gen 3 chips with the Gen 2-based Raizen 4000 desktop chips released by AMD this summer. For prebuilt systems.)

All in all, replacing the Zen 2 CPU with a comparable Zen 3 model – newer chips are compatible with older motherboards after a firmware update – gives users an average of 26 percent improvement when keeping TDP and core calculations. Same.

AMD will start with four new Gen 3 CPUs. The top-of-the-line Raison 9 5950X model has 16 cores, 32 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4.9GHz to 9 799; 12 549 Raison 9 5900X, 12 cores, 32 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4.8GHz; 8 449 Raison 7 5800X, eight cores, 16 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4.7GHz; And 6 299 Raison 5 5600X, six cores, 12 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4.6GHz.

AMD Raison 9 5900X 12c / 24t 105W Up to 4.8 / 3.7 GHz 70 $ 549
AMD Raison 7 5800X 8C / 16T 105W Up to 4.7 / 3.8 GHz 36 $ 449
AMD Raison 5 5600X 6c / 12t 65W Up to 4.6 / 3.7 GHz 35 $ 299

In particular, each chip earned a $ 50 price increase from 2019 compared to the actual prices of the comparable Gen 2 CPU. Four new CPUs will be available from November 5th.

Taking a live shot at AMD Intel With the new lineup, in particular The company’s Core i9-10900K model, Intel has previously boasted of being “the fastest gaming processor in the world.” AMD’s chips do not beat Intel’s 10th gen chips at perfect clock speed – Intel’s top chip peaks at 5.3GHz, while Raizen 5950X (AMD’s fastest new chip) tops at 4.9GHz – offers other advantages such as AMD improved power efficiency and higher core And thread counting.

Raizen 9 5900X claims to be able to beat Intel’s i9-10900K for a wide range of titles in head-to-head performance. League of Legends, Dota2, The shadow of the tomb Rider, And much more. (Intel’s chip still wins Battlefield V, And we have to wait and see how third party benchmarks rank things before making any real judgments here.)

In fact, the new CPU needed a new GPU to go with it, and AMD took the time to begin teasing its upcoming Radeon RX 6000 “Big Navy” graphics cards built on its next generation RDNA 2 architecture. Announced in full on October 28th. New cards AMD’s answer to this Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs, And teases 60fps benchmarks that the company can also push high-end 4K gaming Borderlands3, Call to action of modern warfare, And Gears5 At Ultra settings.

AMD will not have much time to rest on its laurels, though: Intel is already preparing for its response Its 11th Gen Rocket Lake teases CPUs In early 2021.
