AMD is expected to officially unveil its new Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors for the first time, which will feature the 7nm+ Zen 3 architecture.
Rumours (via Patrick Schur) suggest we’ll see the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (12 Core) and AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (8 Core) desktop processors announced today. There has also been speculation about a 10-core Ryzen 5000 chip, but we’re not 100% convinced by that.

Either way, it looks like the high-end Ryzen 5000 processors will boast significantly more cores and threads than Intel’s upcoming Rocket Lake chips. Rumours indicate there will be a maximum of eight cores in the Rocket Lake line-up. This will potentially mean AMD will retain its lead for multi-threaded performance, which is important for professional-grade content creation.
Intel has at least confirmed that Rocket Lake will support PCIe 4.0 and will launch in the first quarter of 2021. So if you’re looking for the absolute most powerful CPU for gaming, you may want to wait until the Intel Rocket Lake launch before making a final decision.
While AMD is expected to offer lots and lots of information about its upcoming Ryzen processors during tonight’s presentation, don’t expect to hear any news on the upcoming AMD Big Navi (RDNA 2) graphics cards. AMD has already confirmed it will be holding a separate digital event on 28 October for its next-gen GPUs.
