AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors

Designed for gamers and content creators, AMD's new Ryzen 5000 Series processors have up to 16 cores and are said to have the highest single-thread performance of any desktop gaming processor and the highest multi-core performance of any desktop processor in a mainstream CPU socket. The Zen 3 architecture helps cut down latency, increases 1080p gaming performance by 26% across select titles, and has more than double the performance-per-watt than the competition. 

The new 500 Series Desktop processors will be available on November 5th.
