New Product: AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU Series

Posted by   Paul D

We have exciting news!

AMD have recently announced their latest release, the AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU processor for desktops. It will be available on our website from 5th November.

Whether you are playing the latest games or working with data, you need a powerful processor that can handle the demands of your lifestyle. Ultimately the processor is a small chip that goes inside your computer, it then receives input and provides the appropriate output. Although this may sound fairly simple, most modern processors can handle trillions of calculations per second. This is over 5,000 times faster than early model processors.


The brand new AMD Ryzen CPU is the first chip from the company set to feature its next-gen Zen 3 architecture, making it one of the biggest jumps for the AMD desktop chips.

The CPU provides an immersive experience and can dominate any task, including working in 3D, video rendering, and compiling software.

The AMD 5000 processor still uses the AMD 7nm process, but offers a 19% increase in instructions per cycle, and has a complete redesign of the chip layout providing you with a higher max boost speed. To avoid confusion, the new chipsets are also going to be in the Ryzen 5000 series branding. Simply replacing the Zen 2 CPU with a comparable Zen 3 model and making the new chips compatible with older motherboards will result in an average 26% improvement for users.

AMD are setting the bar high, promising that the Ryzen 5900X version is nothing short of “the world’s best gaming CPU.” Prices vary for the different versions, be sure to check out our website on the 5th November to get your hands on the newest release.

AMD or Intel?

One of the most common questions we get from our customers, both gamers and everyday computer users, is would an AMD or an Intel processor would suit them best?

AMD Ryzen CPU’s tend to be more responsive to faster memory, meaning if you require a lot of memory it would suit your needs. For instance if you play a lot of memory heavy games, like Batman: Arkham Knight, then the AMD processors are the best ones for you.

We recommend you understand your requirements from a CPU, then review which may suit your needs. When you compare AMD and Intel CPU specs, AMD does offer more cores and/or threads, more cache and support for faster memory. From the top of the high end desktop market to the high-end, mid-range and low-end sectors, AMD has capable Ryzen processors that offer more value than the comparable Intel models.

AMD is matching Intel with the new Ryzen CPU, whilst also offering advantages such as improved power efficiency and a higher core and thread count.

With any new CPU you will need a new GPU to go with it. Rumour has it that AMD is starting to tease its upcoming Radeon RX 6000 “Big Navi” Graphics card. AMD will be announcing more on this around October, we believe, so we will keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Ready for motherboards

If you have a AMD 500 series motherboard, then you will be happy to know that they are compatible with the AMD Ryzen 5000 processors, all it requires is a simple BIOS update. The processor can be used on over 100 AMD 500 series motherboards from major manufacturers.
