As the end of the year creeps closer and closer, us PC enthusiasts get treated to a whole host of next-gen hardware releases. We’ve already seen Nvidia’s new graphics cards launch with their 3080 and 3090 cards selling out in seconds, and Intel’s latest CPUs releasing back in Summer. Now, it’s AMD’s turn with their lineup of next-gen CPUs (and don’t forget their Big Navi GPUs that are just on the horizon!).
AMD will be following their usual route and releasing four new CPUs as part of their 5000 series lineup; 5600X, 5800X, 5900X, and the one we’re focusing on today – the 5950X. AMD has already shown us a quick glimpse at what we can expect from these cards in their latest presentation (which you can watch above) and the 5950X is the most powerful CPU on their roster.
Once the new CPU starts to appear to order, we’ll be adding links in here so you can be sure to grab one for yourself.

The AMD Ryzen 5950X will be aimed at those looking to build an incredibly powerful workstation PC thanks to its 16 cores and 32 threads – meaning it excels when it comes to multitasking. The CPU will also come with a boost clock of 4.9, along with 72MB of L2+L3 Cache and a 1-5W TDP. While this chip will probably be over-powered for the average gamer, for those looking for something a bit meatier, you can’t go wrong with a 5950X.
AMD Ryzen 5950X Release Date
Dr. Lisa Su announced in AMD’s big next-gen presentation that the Ryzen 9 5950X will release on November 5th, 2020 for an RRP of $799.
