Apparently, AMD will market the Zen 3-based Ryzen CPUs as Ryzen 5000 instead of Ryzen 4000. This eliminates name confusion as Ryzen 4000G already exists, but these are APUs with an older Zen 2 architecture and integrated graphics.
As we already know, the Ryzen 5000 with Zen 3 technology, known internally as Vermeer, will be officially released on October 8, 2020. The new Zen 3 CPU architecture uses various improvements, such as a CCX per CCD, for more performance per clock than before.
So far, information suggests that AMD is planning to unveil Ryzen 9 5950X (16C/32T) with 3.7 GHz base frequency, Ryzen 9 5900X (12C/24T) with 3.8 GHz base frequency, Ryzen 7 5800X (8C/16T) with 4 GHz base frequency, and Ryzen 5 5600X (6C/12T) with 4 GHz base frequency. According to unconfirmed reports, the first CPUs could go on sale in October 2020.
Not surprisingly, the CPUs’ first supposed benchmark values have appeared in the past few days, more precisely from Ashes of the Singularity Escalation.
Although, there, the GPU was used instead of the CPU-focused benchmark, but the CPU frame rates suggest that the Ryzen 7 5800X overtakes the previous Ryzen 7 3800XT by about 20 percent. Both CPUs have eight cores, but the newer model has an improved architecture and possibly more clock speed.
However, all information should be treated with the greatest caution, because AMD has not yet entered into such speculations. The manufacturer itself will only announce concrete facts on October 8.
