The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X would be a 12-core CPU; the Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core

It seems that we can already confirm that the next generation of processors is the AMD Ryzen 5000, so finally, the information from a few days ago is fulfilled: ” The AMD Ryzen 4000 will finally arrive under the name of Ryzen 5000 “.

The reason is none other than the obvious, to offer a complete range of Ryzen 5000 series products that use the same microarchitecture, and not to launch now a Ryzen 4000 Zen3 for desktops, and at the beginning of the year a Ryzen 5000 for laptops with the same microarchitecture, which would imply that the desktop Ryzen 4000 are “out of date” or are “less powerful”.

According to Patrick Schur, a software engineer, he has revealed that the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor will employ a 12-core 24-thread configuration, while the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X will employ an 8-core 16-thread configuration. This really isn’t news, but it does get us wondering what the rumored 10-core, the 20-thread model will be called, and this processor could end up being called the AMD Ryzen 7 5850X or the AMD Ryzen 9 5850X.

For the rest, we remember that these AMD Ryzen 5000 will remain in the 16 cores and 32 processing threads as the top of the range model, AMD Ryzen 9 5950X; will support up to 1 TB of DDR4 RAM @ 3200 MHz; each CCD will consist of a single 8-core CCX, and we expect an improvement in the IPC of around 17 percent along with a slight increase in frequencies.
