AMD teases their Ryzen 9000 series with new chipset drivers

AMD’s teasing their Zen 5 Ryzen 9000 series of processors with their latest drivers

References to AMD’s next-generation processors have been found inside the company’s latest chipset drivers. It looks like AMD will be releasing their upcoming Zen 5 processors under the Ryzen 9000 banner. This information was first spotted by @9550pro on Twitter/X.

For their mainstream desktop processors, it looks like AMD are skipping their Ryzen 8000 naming scheme. Currently, there are Ryzen 8000 series desktop CPUs available in the form of the Ryzen 8000G series, all of which feature Zen 4 CPU cores. For Zen 5, AMD appears to be moving to Ryzen 9000 series branding. This will set their new processors apart from existing CPU models.

AMD are expected to reveal their Ryzen 9000 series of Zen 5 processors at Computex 2024. Recent rumours have suggested that AMD’s new chips could be 40% faster than their predecessors. Presently, AMD has not said anything official about these processors. Regardless, you should take these rumours with a grain of salt.

With Zen 5, AMD are promising PC enthusiasts a “new grounds up architecture”, suggesting that the company are making a lot of changes to their CPU core designs. Even so, a lot of changes does not guarantee a large performance boost.
