About AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 Processor

AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series

Ryzen 5000 series processors are the next-gen processors of AMD powered by Zen 3 architecture. These processors will boost the clock speed to the maximum and increase the IPC (instructions per clock) to 19 percent. Moreover, the 8-core core complex will reduce core to core latency that will increase the gaming performance. The AMD CEO Dr. Su said.

Our work with Ryzen is never done. it’s all about Zen 3. Zen 3 increases our lead in overall performance, it increases our lead in power efficiency, and also now it delivers the best single-threaded performance and gaming performance as well. We have made massive changes in the core architecture.
