Finally, after 12 years AMD launched its Ryzen 5000 processors, which is said to be the most powerful desktop chips available on the market. These processors offer the best single-threaded and gaming performance of any desktop chips. The fastest gaming CPUs right now are Intel’s latest 8th and 9th generation CPUs, which run in socket LGA1151 motherboards with 300-series chipsets. The Intel Core i9-9900KS is the best gaming CPU in the world for play in 1080p, having eight cores and supports up to 16 threads with all-core boost clock for 5GHz.
Talking about the new AMD Ryzen processors, the new range includes Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X, which uses its Zen 3 architecture which is newer than the architecture used by Intel’s current 10th generation processors. The most powerful Ryzen processor, the Ryzen 9 5950X offers users 16 cores and 32 threads. The Ryzen 9 5900X has 12 cores and 24 threads as well as a base clock of 3.7GHz. the Ryzen 7 5800X have 8 cores and 16 threads with 3.7GHz base clocks. The Ryzen 5 5600X has 6 cores and 12 threads.
Intel has traditionally held the upper hand, but AMD’s Ryzen processors are shaking things up when it comes to thread counts and multitasking. The AMD processors win in two areas – cache and Thermal Design Power (TDP) which has at least double the cache of its Intel equivalent and acquire less power than Intel do. However, the AMD processors are more expensive than the Intel processors. Given the fact that the AMD processors are new, they use newer technologies.
