UK retailer reveals AMD’s Zen 3/Ryzen 5000 series regional pricing  

The UK retailer, Overclockers UK has listed AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 5000 series of processors, revealing the first UK prices for AMD’s Zen 3 processors. 

With Zen 3, AMD’s promising its users a 19% IPC increase over Zen 2, and higher boost clock speeds for many of their new models.

These factors allow AMD to deliver increased single-threaded performance, and AMD’s cache and core topology redesigns have made AMD’s Zen 3 processors ideal for gaming. On average, AMD’s tests show that their Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5900X is 26% on average faster than their Ryzen 9 3900XT in CPU-limited gaming workloads.  

In the UK, AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X will ship for £749.99, the same price as AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X was at launch. AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900X also launches at a similar price to AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X initial retail price. That said, AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X will launch for higher prices than their RX 3000 series counterparts, which will annoy some customers. 

In time, AMD is expected to release lower-cost Ryzen 7 5700X and Ryzen 5 5600 processors with lower price points. At launch, AMD is focusing on its high-end models. 

With their Ryzen 5000 series, AMD is competing with Intel, not their older Ryzen models. From this vantage point, AMD’s pricing structure makes a lot more sense. 

AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series processors will become available to order on November 5th.
