Ryzen 5000

  1. AMD revealed their new 5000 processor today. According to them, the 5900X and 5950X are now the fastest single core, multicore, and gaming processor that you can buy.

    They showed the 5900X breaking the Cinebench single core record and posted their own gaming benchmarks against Intel. It's a 26% increase in performance on average at 1080p over the last gen Ryzen. The blue lines represent an Intel i9 10900K.


    The 5600X price seems a little high to me.
    • Ryzen 5 5600X (6c/12t) $299
    • Ryzen 7 5800X (8c/16t) $449
    • Ryzen 9 5900X (12c/24t) $549
    • Ryzen 9 5950X (16c/32t) $799
  2. According to my stock portfolio these CPUs are great. I really want them to tackle video cards. All the recommendations suggest nVidia.
  3. AMD showed their big Navi card directly competing with the 3080 so I believe they will have a full line up to compete with Nvidia's cards with the exception of the 3090. I'd also like to think that many games will be optimized for AMD because XBox and Play Station use AMD GPUs.
  4. Well, now we know why they are charging $300 for a "mid-range" 5600X. It smoked Intel's fastest chip in single core performance in PassMark.

  5. Do you guys see sub $1000 24 core CPUs in the next year? I'm thinking about building a PC but an epic (eypc?) "final PC" for like 10 years. I was orginally gonna do it at 12, then 16, but I guess the hussle never ends because 64 cores are out...

    I think I'm having a mid life crisis lol
  6. Wow, this is not the best year for Intel. I'm so glad I sent the 7700K and associated components back and went with 1800x Ryzen instead. I could see the potential, and they have definitely gone all out to realize it. AMD has made an incredible comeback, and I wouldn't be shocked if their GPUs continue to progress towards competitiveness with Nvidia. The 1800x/ AM4 platform had early compatibility issues and was criticized for not being quite as good as Intel for gaming due to initially slower single core speed. They've not only caught up but are now smoking Intel's chips.
  7. I don't think AMD will release a new Threadripper until 2022. When they do, it will be on the 5nm node and supporting DDR5. But that's over a year away. You best bet right now is the 16 core Ryzen 9 5950X. It should be the undisputed performance king until Intel's Rocket Lake comes out in 6 months.
  8. Another early benchmark. 5800X crushing it in CPU-Z.

  9. AMD is back on top and has taken the gaming and productivity crowns by a large amount. I'm not sure of the last time that has happened.

  10. In hoping although it won't happen that nvidia brings their prices down... All AMD needs to do now is have stock and they've won
