The upcoming AMD 5000 Series is undoubtedly quite an evolutionary leap as it is based on the new ZEN 3 Architecture. Quite a few processors from this unannounced AMD Ryzen 5000 Series have recently surfaced online, including the AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5800X. The latest leak now confirms a few more key aspects of the ZEN 3-based CPU.
AMD has scheduled a presentation on October 8, 2020. The company is expected to deliver the latest technological advancements to its desktop platform at the event. Experts indicate AMD could reveal the latest generation of CPUs will be branded as a part of the AMD Ryzen 5000 series. The company appears to have abandoned the AMD Ryzen 4000 Series, which could now remain exclusive to the Renoir Series which comprises of ZEN 2-based processors.
AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5800X Specifications, Features:
Last week the AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5700U surfaced online in the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark website. Even the Ryzen 7 5800X made an appearance, but details were scarce. This leak effectively confirmed AMD is skipping the Ryzen 4000 series naming for its desktop parts.
Needless to add, the AMD Ryzen 5000 Series naming will align well with the upcoming ZEN 3-based AMD ‘Cezanne’ for the desktop segment and even the Lucienne Series for the mobile computing segment. The naming would make it a lot easier for consumers who intend to make the shift from Intel.

Coming to the AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5800X, the AotS benchmark did not offer much detail. This is because the platform does not record any specifications of the devices, such as CPU or GPU frequencies. The benchmark also doesn’t reveal the testbench platform which should include the clock speeds or a motherboard that was used for these test runs.
The leaked benchmark, however, offers some critical details about the AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5800X CPU. Moreover, the benchmark appears to compare the AMD CPU against Intel’s 10th-Gen Core i9-10900K. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8 Core 16 Thread CPU. The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is expected to be 12 Core 24 Thread CPU. In comparison, the Intel Core i9-10900K is a 10 Core 20 Thread CPU.
The exact or final Clock Speeds of the AMD ZEN 3 ‘Vermeer’ Ryzen 7 5800X aren’t yet known. The benchmark could easily belong to an early engineering sample. The average batch result for the Ryzen 7 5800X was 59.3 FPS and when it comes to CPU frames it managed to score 133.6 FPS. Intel’s top-end CPU managed to average 60.3 FPS and 114.8 FPS from the CPU framerates. Needless to add, the results strongly indicate just how well AMD has built the new ZEN 3 CPU which comes very close to Intel’s top performer.
AMD About To Become The Choice For Gamers?
Several reports have indicated that AMD CPUs have already surpassed Intel in single-thread performance. The ZEN 3 Architecture has been specifically optimized to boost Clock Speeds. Intel’s CPUs have been traditionally preferred by gamers owing to slightly low latency between cores.
Additionally, games have traditionally been optimized for Intel CPUs, although they do work well on AMD processors as well. However, with the upcoming ZEN 3-based AMD CPUs, the company has worked to address the multiple minor aspects. These CPUs will certainly benefit from the enhanced 7nm fabrication process. Hence it will be interesting to see how gamers and enthusiasts react to AMD’s latest CPUs that are set to arrive in the next few days.
