AMD announced its next-generation Zen3 architecture, the first line of products to be used, the Raison 5000 desktop processor with speeds up to 4.9 GHz and 16 cores. the chipmaker says will provide the best single- and multi-threaded performance in a PC.
The new 7-nanometer Zen 3 architecture, launched Thursday in Santa Clara, California, has a 19 percent increase in zones (IPC) and the highest peak over the previous generation.
In her opening speech, AMD CEO Lisa Sue said that Zen3 products offer additional advantages
over Intel. With the new CPU architecture, AMD now claims to have faster single-core performance than Intel processors.
“Zen 3 increases our lead in overall performance,” she said. “It increases our lead in power efficiency, and also now, it delivers the best single-threaded performance and gaming performance
The new Ryzen 5000 desktop processors will deliver an average performance improvement of 26 percent for 1080p gaming with the new Ryzen 9 5900X over the company’s previous-generation Ryzen 3900XT, according to Robert Hallock, AMD’s director of technical marketing. The good news for existing Ryzen 3000 customers, he added, is that the new CPUs don’t require a
motherboard upgrade and will only need a simple BIOS update.
"This is a great way to update the socket on the same motherboard. Zen 3 is a real testament to how good the game is,” he said.

At launch, the Raison 5000 series comes with four processors and costs 799 US dollars. The latter is similar to the new Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X.
The $ 549 Raison 9 5900X has 12 cores, a 4.8 GHz Max drive, a 3.7 base, and a 70 MB cache. The $ 449 Raison 7 5800X has eight cores, 16 threads, a 4.7 GHz maximum drive, a 3.8 GHz base, and a 36 MB cache. The Raison 5 5600X has six cores, 12 threads, a maximum 4.6 GHz drive, a 3.7 GHz base, a 35 MB cache, and 65 watts of heat output. The second part is the only one that comes with cooling.
The flagship processors of the 10th generation from Intel play up to 10 cores, up to 5.3 GHz at turbo frequencies, which is higher than the announced maximum boost frequency of 4.9 GHz for AMD's new Raison 9 5950X. However, AMD still demands faster single-threaded and gaming performance.
That means consumers will ultimately have more choice, and according to Copeland, the executive expects the Raison 5000 to further increase AMD's desktop market share.However, Copeland added that Intel will not sit idly by its next-generation Rocket Lake processor and future versions, trying to find various ways to keep the company alive.
However, due to the technical conflict between AMD and Intel, consumers will be able to see higher quality designs.
