AMD’s working on Ryzen 5000XT CPUs with faster clock speeds

AMD’s prepping new AM4 CPUs with their Ryzen 5000XT series

In China, AMD has revealed plans to “attack every price point” by revealing a wide range of new processors. This includes new socket AM4 processors with the Ryzen 5000XT series. Yes, AM4 isn’t a dead socket, and it is clear that AMD plans to continue supporting the socket, at least for now.

This is not the first time that AMD has launched XT series Ryzen processors. With their Ryzen 3000XT series, AMD delivered enhanced Zen 2 processors with moderate clock speed boosts. We expect the Ryzen 5000XT series to do the same thing with AMD’s Zen 3 lineup. If it is like its 3000 series counterparts, we can expect CPUs to ship with a 100-200MHz clock speed boost. While this isn’t much of a boost, any performance increase is welcome.

While AMD has replaced their AM4 platform with AM5, the company’s older platform remains a great place for value-oriented PC builders. Many of the oldest AM4 motherboards from 2017 can support the newest AM4 processors. That gives AM4 users a lot of upgrade options. Second hand AM4 motherboards are also incredibly affordable, making them a great option for budget PC builds.
