When you have the world’s most advanced processor architecture for gamers and content creators, the possibilities are endless. Whether you are playing the latest games, designing the next skyscraper, or crunching data, you need a powerful processor that can handle it all—and more. Hands down, the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors set the bar for gamers and artists alike.

AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processors power the next generation of demanding games, providing one of a kind immersive experiences and dominate any multithreaded task like 3D and video rendering2, and software compiling.

With great processing power comes the bleeding-edge technologies to support. All AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processors come with a full suite of technologies designed to elevate your PC’s processing power including Precision Boost 2, Precision Boost Overdrive3 and PCIe® 4.0.

Not only are these processors drop-in ready on 500 series motherboards with a simple BIOS update, you can easily tweak and tune your processor with Ryzen™ Master and AMD StoreMI.

BIOS updates supporting the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors on AMD 400 Series chipsets are expected to be available starting January 2021; exact availability will vary by manufacturer and motherboard model.

Great CPU

by AW star star star star star

Recently upgraded from Ryzen 5 5600X and i can tell the difference. Paired this with an EK 360 AIO and temps never go above 30 in idle. I have CPU boost set to auto in the X570 mobo bios and im getting clock speeds just below 5ghz, temps spike at around 50-55 degrees. I considered getting the 5950X but im glad i chose the 5900X. Cheaper for one thing and better single core clock speeds.

Great CPU

Very nice CPU. I upgraded from a 1700X (Which I bought the day of release) and could instantly feel the difference. The normal boost frequency is nice and it also cools well with my H100i V2 on fairly low speeds.
