AMD ZEN 3 RYZEN 5000 CPUs EVENT Transcript

Lisa: That was fantastic. I hope you’re all now convinced that the Ryzen 9 5900X is the best gaming processor in the world. Now let’s look at the stack. In the 5000 series, we have a great choice for every gamer or PC enthusiast. In addition to the 5900X, we have the 5800X — an 8-core / 16 thread processor with boost frequencies up to 4.7 GHz at 105 Watts.

And we also have the 5600X — a 6-cores / 12-threads CPU with boost frequencies up to 4.6 GHz at 65 Watts. Now let’s talk about price and availability.

The 6-cores 5600X is $299. The 8-core 5800X is $449. And the amazing 5900X combining the leadership performance and power efficiency of Zen 3 in a 12-core 7nm-design is priced at $549.

And all of these will be available globally on November 5th. We’re really proud of the 5000 series, but you know we’re not done. We love our enthusiasts. And there’s one more processor in our stack, which is the ultimate processor for gaming and content creation. For those of you who want the very best processor in a desktop PC, we have the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X.

The 5950X is simply an amazing CPU. 16-cores / 32-threads and our fastest processor with boost frequencies up to 4.9 GHz. The 5950X breaks the Cinebench 1T single threaded record that Robert said just a few minutes ago with a score of 640. It is truly the best in class in every dimension.

Best gaming performance meets best processor for content creation and all of this still at 105 Watts. Now let’s take a look at some of the performance. If we look at the generational uplift from the 3950X to the 5950X, we see up to 27% more performance in CAD workloads and 12% more performance in rendering workloads. More impressively, we see up to 29% more gaming performance.

And this is really how we bring the best of both worlds together. The best for gamers and the best for creators.

And now, if you put 5950X against the top of the stack from the competition. We see that the 5950X provides up to 59% more creative performance in rendering workloads, double-digit wins in video editing and software compiling.

And we also went in lightly threaded CAD workloads as well. We’re really proud of the fact that we also win in gaming. There’s nothing like the 5950X in the world. One processor that delivers the best power efficiency, our highest clock speeds, the highest single core performance in the industry and the highest multi-core performance of any gaming processor.

And it’s priced at $799. And we’ll also be available globally on November 5th.

I hope you’re now as excited about AMD Ryzen 5000 series as I am. Zen 3 is really amazing and I’m so happy we could show it to you today. But you guys send me a lot of notes and a lot of tweets. And I know that you’re not just excited about the Ryzen 5000 series, but there’s a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and curiosity about our Radeon lineup as well.

So the next few weeks are just an amazing time for us. In addition to introducing our Ryzen 5000 series, we’re also going to introduce our next-gen Radeon GPU. And I want to give you a small preview of that today. This is the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series — which we now affectionately called “Big Navi.”

Thanks to many of you who nicknamed it for us. It is absolutely gorgeous. And by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built. We got a lot of requests from our fans on social. And I heard a whole conversation on the Full Nerd last week about wanting to see Zen 3 and Big Navi in action. So today I’m going to show you a preview of what you can expect from AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and our Radeon 6000 series.

We’ve been doing a tremendous amount of work, optimizing gameplay with Ryzen 5000 and Radeon 6000 series. So, let me show you today Borderlands 3 — which is a very popular AAA title running at 4K resolution on the Ryzen 5900X and our Radeon 6000 series. Just take a look at that performance over 60 frames per second, at 4K with beautiful image quality.

We are super excited with what we’ve accomplished with big Navi. In addition to Borderlands 3, here’s a bit more of a performance preview on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Gears of War 5 at Ultra Settings in 4K.

And again, what you see is tremendous 4K performance across the board. We still have a few weeks until launch and the team is working really hard on fine tuning things, but I hope you’re as excited as we are about what Ryzen 5000 series and Radeon 6000 series can do together for your next-generation PC.

So that brings us to the end. I hope you enjoyed today. It’s been so much fun spending time with you. We have a lot more to show you later this month. So join us again on October 28th, where we’ll give you the full story of our AMD Radeon RX 6000 series. And make sure you mark your calendar for November 5th to find Ryzen 5000 series on shelf worldwide.

Take care and see you soon.
