On paper, these AMD Ryzen 5000 specs look pretty good, combined with their affordable price tags. At the October 8 launch, AMD talked up the new CPUs performance, with the "AMD Ryzen 9 5900X [offering] up to a 26% generational uplift in gaming performance" compared to the last-gen.
It also claimed that the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X had "the highest single-thread performance of any desktop gaming processor" and the "most multi-core performance of any desktop gaming processor and any desktop processor in a mainstream CPU socket."
Meanwhile, the 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is on an average "7% faster in 1080p gaming across select game titles than the competition," which AMD claims is the Intel Core i9-10900K. This is a 10-core CPU, which would be sold for Rs 51,990 (about $488, £400, AU$750), which is slightly cheaper than what AMD is asking for.
AMD showcased how the new Ryzen 5000 chips dwarf even the Intel i9-10900K processor in its charts. ADM with Ryzen 5000 series is offering 7nm architecture, higher cores and thread count, and a larger cache. All this for lower power consumption. And even the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, which is the most basic processor among the four beats Intel i9 scores, making it ideal for gaming.
