AMD expected to launch new Ryzen 9000 Zen 5 CPUs in July

AMD’s Ryzen 9000 Desktop CPU launch plans have leaked 6-16-core CPU models are coming!

Over on Chiphell, the leaker known as wjm47196 has stated that AMD plans to release their Ryzen 9000 series of Zen 5 desktop processors in July. Furthermore, they have stated that AMD’s new Zen 5 lineup will feature the same core counts as their Ryzen 7000 series.

At launch, AMD are expected to release processors with 6 cores, 8 cores, 12 cores, and 16 cores. Sadly, wjm47196 has made no mention of any V-Cache enhanced X3D series Zen 5 processors. This suggests that AMD’s Ryzen 9000 X3D Zen 5 CPUs will be launching at a later date.

Given their core count parity with their predecessors, AMD’s new Zen 5 series processors must rely primarily on single-threaded improvements to deliver performance gains. This can either come through improved CPU clock speeds or through IPC improvements. Either way, notable single-threaded performance improvements are expected with Zen 5. Some leakers have claimed that AMD’s Zen 5 CPUs will be 40% faster than their predecessors.

We expect AMD to reveal their next-generation Ryzen processors during their Computex 2024 keynote. This keynote will be hosted on June 3rd.

You can join the discussion on AMD’s Ryzen CPU launch plans on the OC3D Forums.
