AMD Ryzen 9 5900X “Vermeer” 12 Core/24 Thread Zen 3 Processor

With boost speeds allegedly up to 5 GHz and 150W TDP.

Everyday I wake up to great news about AMD’s up-coming Zen 3 processors … and this is one I’ve been waiting to hear about!  The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X “Vermeer” 12 Core/24 Thread Zen 3 Processor … I can’t wait to get one of these!

Taken from Wccftech … The source reports that AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900X is going to be the fastest chip offering for some time and it will feature a maximum of 12 cores and 24 threads. We know this from previous rumors too that AMD is preparing at least two Zen 3 “Vermeer” SKUs for the AM4 platform which would include the Ryzen 9 5900X 12 core and Ryzen 7 5800X 8 core processors.

As for the alleged specifications, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is said to feature an IPC improvement of up to 20%. One of the main areas of improvement where AMD has put lots of effort into tuning on Zen 3 is the clock frequencies. As such, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is said to reach boost clocks of up to 5 GHz. That’s a +300 MHz improvement over the Ryzen 9 3900XT and a +400 MHz improvement over the Ryzen 9 3900X in terms of boost clocks. The boost clock is for a single-core with all-core boost frequencies still being under the 5 GHz barrier but we can expect some decent clocks out of the chip.

The details also highlight that the Ryzen 9 5900X will ship with a TDP of up to 150W which is 45W higher than the Ryzen 9 3900X (105W TDP).
