AMD Zen 3 Announcement – Updated Live


We are going to be joining Dr. Lisa Su as she goes through AMD’s latest and possibly greatest announcement to date, as she details the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen desktop processor lineup, powered by the all-new Zen 3 architecture.

We are going to be updating this page live as all the action happens, don’t forget to tune in.


AMD Zen 3: Summary

Here’s a brief look over AMDs latest triumph with Zen 3:

  • 1080p gaming performance leadership
  • Same optimized 7nm process as Ryzen XT models
  • Zen 3 microarchitecture delivers 19% IPC improvement
  • 24% gen-on-gen power efficiency improvement — 2.8X better than 10900K
  • Higher peak frequencies for most models — 4.9 GHz on Ryzen 9 5950X
  • Lower base frequency for all models, offset by increased IPC
  • L3 cache now unified in a single 32MB cluster

We also got a small teaser towards the end with the new Radeon GPU performance combined with a 5900X

17.21 – Performance at a glance – 3950X to 5950x- delivers up to 29% more gaming performance. The 5950X smashes the competition across the board but AMD is particularly proud of the gaming win. The 5950X is priced at $799.

17-20 – in the 5000 series we see the 5800X, an 8 core 16 thread processor with 4.7Ghz boost performance that will cost $449. We also see the 5600X with 6 cores and 12 threads for just $299.


We are also getting the 16 core Ryzen 9 5950X with 32 threads and a boost clock of 4.9Ghz. This CPU breaks the cinebench record with a score of 640!

17.19 – LOL and CSGO are stand out victories for the new 5900XT, with an average uplift of 26% for customers looking to upgrade.


17.18 – Single-core performance – Cinebench results – 5900X is the first processor to break a 600 score, with 631!

17.16 – 5900X vs 3900XT – built-in benchmark on SOTR in 1080p shows a 28% increase with the latest chip. This is huge for a CPU upgrade, demonstrating the gaming strength for Zen 3.  We see double-digit performance improvements across most games, most specifical games like CSGO.

17.15 – Zen 3 in action – AMD Ryzen 5000 series – The  5900Xhas 19% IPC, higher clock speeds, and all those improvements we just showcased. This is a huge upgrade – especially in gaming!

17.15 – 2.8X more efficient than the i9-9900K! Zen 3 is shipping as promised and the 5nm Zen 4 is on track!!!

17.15- Twice the L3 Cache in Zen 3

17.13 – 19% IPC uplift increase for PCs

17.13 – 19% higher instructions per clock

17.10 – Lower latency means significant accelerator for PC gaming

17.09 – What can we expect: Higher Max boost,  Significant IPC uplift, New core layout, New cache topology

17.08 – Brand new CPU core- Zen 3. Zen 3 increases AMD’s lead in performance and efficiency, with the best single-threaded gaming performance.

17.07 – Ryzen! Desktop progress – We see steady progress until recently where it is now starting to take off, with the highest multithreaded performance but AMDs work with Ryzen isn’t over.

17.02 – Little bit of a backstory going on from Dr. Lisa Su, the hype is building!

17.01 – We are about to go live folks, watch this space!
