AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Processor Pictured

Winter is coming for Intel … but for us AMD enthusiasts, it’s SUMMERTIME! Can’t wait to slot these lovely processors straight in to my X570 (or B550) motherboard. I love you AMD!

Taken from TPU … Here’s the first picture showing AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series “Zen 3” desktop processors in the flesh. The first wave of Ryzen 5000 series for the retail channel include the Ryzen 5 5600X, the Ryzen 7 5800X, the Ryzen 9 5900X and the 5950X. All four chips are shown sitting on a tray.

All four chips are compatible with existing Socket AM4 motherboards based on the AMD 500 series chipset motherboard with a BIOS update; and with the 400-series using a special beta BIOS which will be released in January 2021. The four should be available for purchase in the retail channel by November 5, 2020, with the 6-core/12-thread 5600X priced at USD $300, the 8-core/16-thread 5800X at $450, the 12-core/24-thread 5900X at $550, and the flagship 16-core/32-thread 5950X at $800.
