Latest update – 17:50BST, 10/08/2020

One reason we love autumn here at WePC is that we get a nice chunk of brand new hardware releases all at the same time. We’ve already had the 3080 and 3090 GPUs release from Nvidia, and we’ve got the AMD Big Navi release on the horizon too. One hardware release we’re getting sooner rather than later though is the long-awaiting AMD Zen 3 CPUs.

Now that we finally have an announcement date of October 8th, we can start marking off the days on our calendars and getting our PCs ready for their next upgrade.

Be sure to watch the announcement live below:

What Can We Expect From AMD Ryzen Zen 3 Processors?

Compared to its predecessor, the AMD Zen 2, we can expect a good performance increase from the Zen 3. They come with higher core counts, higher clock speeds, higher instructions per clock, and more transistor density. What that all means is that Zen 3 will be one hell of a powerhouse CPU when it drops.

It’s not just a refresh of the existing Zen 2, it’s a complete overhaul. While this means it’s hard to predict exactly what performance increases we can expect some significant changes thanks to the new architecture.

If leaks so far are true, the more powerful Ryzen 4000 series processors will feature up to 5GHz clock speeds, a 400 MHz improvement over the Ryzen 9 3900X but, there’s been no official confirmation on that so let’s just hold out for the October announcement.

Again, while not officially announced, we expect the same naming convention to occur, with the CPUs essentially improving in performance as the numbers increase. For example, the more budget option will be the AMD Ryzen 5 4600 then increasing through the Ryzen 5 4600x, Ryzen 7 4700x, and Ryzen 7 4800x until the top tier Ryzen 9 4900x.

There has recently been talk of the naming convention being changed from 4xxx to 5xxx but we are going to have to wait and see on that one. We will update this page as soon as the official confirmation comes through.

Update: AMD’s Zen 3 5000-Series CPUs will release on November 5th, 2020

AMD has confirmed a live event for the release of these next-gen CPUs. This event for AMD Zen 3 is October 8th, 2020.

Here we should get a whole host of new information and specifications.

We are already beginning to see leaks and early benchmarks. These are exciting times in the PCC hardware arena.

How Much Are AMD Ryzen Zen 3 Processors?

7Update: We now have official pricing for the next-gen AMD CPUs

  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900X – $549
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5800X – $449
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5600X – $299
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5950X – $799

When it comes to how much the AMD Zen 3 CPUs will go for, we’ll know for sure on October 8th, but we’re able to make a pretty educated guess.

There’s no reason to suggest they won’t be priced the same as their Zen 2 counterparts, so looking at those prices will give us a good idea. We can imagine them going for $99 at the bottom end (Ryzen 5 4600) and $500 at the high end (Ryzen 9 4900X).

AMD Zen 3 At A Glance

  • October 8th launch date confirmed
  • Early leaks suggest huge 5Ghz clock potential on high-spec CPU
  • Leaked benchmark looks like mid-range CPU could out-perform Intel’s fastest gaming CPU
  • TSMC N7P or N7+ process
  • Expected to move to Extreme Ultraviolet lithography allowing for up to a 20% increase in performance and 10% decrease in power consumption
  • 32+ MB of unified L3 cache
  • Multi-Chip Module (MCM) design
  • Up to 64 cores for data center chips
  • First chips arrive in late 2020
