AMD Announces Ryzen 9000 Series Desktop Processors

As you may have noticed from the AMD infographic above, the top SKU is, just like the Ryzen 9 7950X last generation, a 16-core, 32-thread part with a maximum frequency of 5.7 GHz. The new Ryzen 9 9950X even has the same amount of total cache, and the same 170W TDP as the top SKU announced in August of 2022.

So what is different this time around? AMD has made architectural improvements to the front end of these Zen 5 parts, leading to gains that AMD claims results in (up to) 16% better IPC.

“For desktop PCs, the new AMD Ryzen 9000 Series desktop processors represent a significant step forward, offering users cutting-edge computing power and reliability. Built on the latest “Zen 5” architecture, AMD Ryzen 9000 Series desktop processors deliver an impressive average 16% better IPC performance compared to the prior generation of Ryzen processors’ “Zen 4” architecture, with the top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 9950X delivering the fastest consumer desktop performance in the world.”
