AMD is all set to debut its next generation of Ryzen CPUs on October 8. Prior to the launch, details about the lineup have begun leaking out. Now, we have some information on the possible flagship chip in the next-gen lineup, the Ryzen 9 5900X.
The next generation of Ryzen CPUs, codenamed Vermeer, is likely to be slotted as the Ryzen 5000 series. Based on the brand new Zen 3 CPU architecture, this generation will bring in a big performance gain. A new leak from PC WELT says that the flagship chip of this generation will be the Ryzen 9 5900X, a 12-core, 24-thread CPU with a TDP of 150W, and a peak clock speed of 5 GHz.
Apparently, the Ryzen 9 5900X will have an IPC improvement of up to 20%. The clock of 5 GHz is also an improvement of 400 MHz over the Ryzen 9 3900X. On the TDP side, the Ryzen 9 5900X will apparently come with a TDP of 150W, which is 45W more than the 105W TDP of the Ryzen 9 3900X.
All of this put together is making the flagship Ryzen 5000 series chip an absolute beast. Of course, we’ll see if the details are true when AMD officially reveals the next-generation Ryzen chips on October 8.
