AMD has introduced its new lineup of Ryzen 5000 series processors, the first of which features the company’s next-gen Zen 3 architecture. The chips serve as the biggest jump yet for the company and have been marketed as “the world’s best gaming CPU.”

The line will introduce four new CPUs: the high-end Ryzen 9 5950X with a 16-core chip, 32 threads, and a 4.9GHz boost speed; the Ryzen 9 5900X with a 12-core chip, 24 threads, and a 4.8GHz boost speed; the Ryzen 7 5800X with an 8-core chipset, 16 threads, and a max boost speed of 4.7GHz; and lastly, the Ryzen 5 5600X, with six cores, 12 threads, and a max boost speed of 4.6GHz.

The new series will offer 26 percent faster gaming performance than its original Zen chips and will provide stronger single-core performance. AMD CTO Mark Papermaster says the new Zen 3 architecture with its unified 8-core complex will lower instruction latency and allow every core to directly reach the chip’s L3 cache. Its benchmarks, according to AMD, outpaces Intel‘s i9-10900K in performance for several titles, including League of Legends, Dota 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more.

The Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 5 5600X sell for $799 USD, $549 USD, $449 USD, and $299 USD, respectively and will be available on November 5 from AMD.

In other tech news, Nvidia expects supply shortages for RTX 3080 and 3090 until 2021.
