Review roundup: Plenty of performance but a higher price tag
The embargo on reviews for AMD's first Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPU SKUs have been lifted and we now have a chance to see how well these four SKUs, the Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 5 5600X, perform in benchmarks, games, and applications.
Priced at $220
According to the latest rumor, AMD could launch the non-X Ryzen 5 5600 CPU in early 2021, with a rather affordable $220 price tag.
Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X take the lead
In addition to announcing the first four Ryzen 5000 series SKUs that will hit the market on November 5th, AMD also revealed some benchmark results for the Ryzen 9 5900X and the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X.
Four SKUs, all launching on November 5th
AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, has kicked off AMD's "Where Gaming Begins" event announcing the new Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs based on Zen 3 CPU architecture. With four SKUs in the new Ryzen 5000 series lineup, all available on November 5th, AMD is claiming the best gaming CPU title, all thanks to Zen 3 architecture improvements and 19 percent increase in performance-per-clock.
