AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series is no longer just a rumour, as the company has lifted the lid on several of its new processors, and even teased Big Navi at 4K ultra. The Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and Ryzen 5 5600X are all built on the brand new Zen 3 architecture, which AMD confidently states is its “most significant architectural update yet” – and yes, it has plenty of lofty figures to prove it.

We always recommend waiting for benchmarks before racing to get a preorder down ahead of the worldwide November 5 release, but it’s good to know what AMD is claiming its new chips can do.

For example, those wanting to upgrade from the Ryzen 3000 series to the Ryzen 5000 series can expect an average performance jump of up to 26% when gaming at 1080p using a high image quality preset, although this does include older titles like League of Legends and CS:GO. The Ryzen 9 5900X hitting 181 frames per second in Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s built-in benchmarking tool is nothing to scoff at, though, given that it’s 40 frames more than the Ryzen 9 3900XT.
