Lisa: That was great. I’m so proud of what the team has accomplished with Zen 3. We’ve really focused on what is most important for gamers and enthusiasts. And at 19% IPC increase, it’s our largest increase generation over generation since we launched the Zen family. So now let’s see Zen 3 in action.

I’m so proud to show you for the very first time. The AMD Ryzen 5000 series for high-performance PCs. The world’s first Zen 3-powered CPU. This is the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X.

12-Cores / 24 Threads at a boost up to 4.8 gigahertz. It’s a very special product. The ultimate enthusiast processor.

Compared to the 3900XT, the 5900X has 19% higher IPC, higher clock speeds and all of the Zen 3 core improvements (that Mark talked about)… all while remaining at 105 Watts.

This makes Ryzen 5900X a big upgrade from 3rd-Gen Ryzen all around; but especially in gaming. Now, let me turn it over to Robert Hallock to show you the 5900X in action.
