AMD Zen 5 “Ryzen 9000” Desktop CPUs confirmed by Gigabyte

Gigabyte confirms AMD’s Ryzen 9000 series CPU plans with motherboard BIOS updates

Gigabyte has confirmed that their AM5 motherboards are now ready for AMD’s “Ryzen 9000” series processors. Yes, you head that right, Ryzen 9000! Gigabyte has confirmed the naming scheme of AMD’s next-generation Zen 5 processors. These new CPUs are due to launch later this year.

This next-gen CPU support on AM5 comes thanks to the release of AMD’s AGESA update. This update is now available though the newest BETA BIOS releases for Gigabyte’s AM5 motherboards. Non-beta BIOS releases with this AGESA code will be available in mid-May, before the launch of AMD’s next-generation CPUs.

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions, released the latest AGESA beta bios for the coming AMD Ryzen 9000 series processors boot-up support on GIGABYTE AM5 X670, B650, A620 motherboards, and for present Ryzen 7000 and 8000 series processors as well.

The AGESA beta BIOS is now ready on the GIGABYTE official website, and the formal release will be in mid-May. Users can easily update the BIOS using GIGABYTE’s ï¼ BIOS, Q-Flash, or Q-Flash Plus technology. For more update, please pay close attention to the official GIGABYTE website.

As of now, we can only guess at the performance levels of AMD’s next-generation AM5 processors. Some leakers have stated that Zen 5’s performance gains to be as high as 40%. That said, it is unclear if these claims are in any way legitimate. Other rumours have suggested that AMD’s Zen 5 CPUs will feature the same core/thread counts as their predecessors. If this is true, AMD’s performance gains with Zen 5 will come primarily from single-threaded performance improvements.

We expect to hear more about AMD’s upcoming Zen 5 CPUs at or around Computex 2024.
