It appears that some new information about the future AMD processor Ryzen 9 5900X has been leaked to us again.
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X: Details about this 12-core 24-threads chip
The processor uses the Veermer based Zen 3 architecture. The chip is manufactured with a 7nm node, and at the IPC level, we should see a 20% performance increase, which would be simply enormous, although it is not the first time we read about these performance increases, and they do not actually show up.
One of the aspects that interest us most today is the mention of the maximum speed of the processor, in a core of course, and now we are talking about 5.0 GHz, where the 3900X was at 4.6 GHz. In other words, we are talking about increasing the clock frequency by no less than 400 MHz, and we could increase the clock frequency in all the cores by up to 300 MHz.
The increase in clock rates will have a direct impact on the standard TDP compared to the previous generation. In fact, this model, which would offer 12 cores and 24 threads, could have a TDP of 150W compared to 105W for the 3900X.
We have to wait another 10 days to get all the details of these new AMD Zen 3 processors to proceed with the development.
The source reports that the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores and 24 threads will be the fastest chip in the entire series. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 7 5800X is also mentioned, which comes with 8 cores and 16 threads.
