Ryzen 5000 – AMD’s Next-Gen Processor Launching 8th October

The flagship Ryzen 9 5950X processor will come with 16 cores/32 threads, while the Ryzen 9 5900X has 12 cores/24 threads, and finally the Ryzen 7 5800X CPU will feature 8 cores/16 threads.

Taken from Yahoo … Following AMD’s announcement that it will launch new Ryzen processors on October 8, we’re now hearing leaks that the company’s next-generation Zen 3-based silicon could debut under the Ryzen 5000 branding.

This would be a departure from early rumors that suggested that the Ryzen 4000 family would include both Zen 2 and Zen 3 processors, and the new Ryzen 5000 branding could help eliminate consumer confusion in the market as it would help distinguish between the two microarchitectures.

Rumors of the Ryzen 5000 branding comes by way of Twitter user Patrick Shur, a software engineer, who tweeted that the Ryzen 9 5900X processor will ship with 12 cores while the Ryzen 7 5800X CPU will contain eight cores, Videocardz reported.

This means that AMD’s code-named Vermeer desktop processor will launch under the Ryzen 5000 branding. The new Ryzen 5000 family will then include Vermeer as well as Cezanne, the APU that will be headed into notebooks and desktops as the successor to Renoir (Ryzen 4000). At this point, it’s unclear if AMD will also launch a 10-core version, despite earlier rumors suggesting that the new Zen 3-based desktop lineup could include such a variant.
