Karlston posted a topic in Technology NewsAMD Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 CPUs could be inbound – but only in prebuilt PCs Rumor has it that these chips will only be supplied to OEMs – and not sold directly to consumers (Image credit: Future) AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 are purportedly waiting in the wings, and rumored specs of these processors have been shared – although the chips will apparently only be sold to PC system builders. The CPUs have been rumored before, and now one of Twitter’s regular hardware leakers, @momomo_us, has tweeted some details of the processors which as ever must be treated with a healthy amount of caution. Theoretically, then, the Ryzen 9 5900 will be a 12-core CPU with 64MB of L3 cache, alongside 2MB of L2 cache. As Wccftech observes, this chip could have a base clock speed of 3GHz with boost running up to 4.7GHz, but that’s where a hefty pinch of salt needs to come in (in terms of whether this is the final spec, even if the leak is genuine). The vanilla 5900 will supposedly have a TDP of 65W, which is considerably leaner than the 105W TDP of the existing 5900X (so clock speeds would be slower as a result – the latter has a base clock of 3.7GHz for comparison, and boost to 4.8GHz). As for the purported Ryzen 7 5800, that’s shaping up to be an 8-core chip with 32MB of L3 cache, plus 4MB of L2 cache, and a base clock of 3.4GHz with boost to 4.6GHz (compared to 3.8GHz and 4.7GHz respectively for the existing 5800X). The TDP will again be 65W compared to 105W for the ‘X’ version of the chip. Close enough In short, performance should be fairly close to the existing 5900X and 5800X, although not quite there – the benefits being less power consumption, and of course a cheaper asking price. As a result, this pair of AMD CPUs could represent a tempting prospect in terms of value proposition. However, remember that the rumor mill contends that these chips are just going to be supplied to system builders, so consumers won’t be able to buy them off the shelves. You will only be able to get hold of one of these pieces of silicon as part of a prebuilt PC. Of course, some of the Ryzen 5000 CPUs which are already out there are still difficult to buy, anyway – even though they’re available for standalone purchase in theory – simply due to stock issues. Although some of those inventory problems are easing, at least going by the latest we’ve heard from one major European retailer.

Karlston posted a topic in Technology NewsAMD Ryzen 5 5600X leaked benchmarks destroy Intel Core i5-10600k If these leaked AMD benchmarks are accurate, the Ryzen 5 5600X is shaping up to be a beast (Image credit: AMD) Benchmarks for the new AMD Ryzen 5 5600X will absolutely flatten rival Intel Core i5-10600K in both single-core and multi-core performance, according to a new leak. The Cinebench R15 CPU benchmark scores for the Ryzen 5 5600X are astounding, if the latest AMD leak posted to Twitter by TUM_APISAK is in fact true. With a multi-core performance of 2048cb and a single-core score of 258cb, it absolutely blows away the competing Intel Core i5-10600K. In our review of the 10600K, it achieved a single-core score on Cinebench R15 of 201cb and and a multi-core score of 1457cb. This means, as Wccftech points out, that the 5600X is 42% faster than the competing i5-10600K in multi-core speed, and 25% faster in single-core performance –all while running at a slower clock speed and 60W less TDP, 125W to 65W. (Image credit: Future) Not only that, Team Red's 5600X also edges out the Intel Core i7-10700K in both multi-core and single-core performance, going by Wccftech's numbers. (Image credit: wccftech) Now, it has to be said, we haven't benchmarked the new Ryzen 5 5600X ourselves yet, so take Twitter leaks with a very unhealthy grain of salt, especially with numbers this over the top. Still, if AMD's latest CPUs deliver this kind of performance, it's a whole new ballgame. Leaks show AMD scorching Intel in single-core performance, which is a BFD AMD has built an advantage over Intel in terms of multi-core performance in the last couple generations, but the company has lagged behind Intel in terms of single-core performance for just as long. This matters because single-core performance is one of the biggest selling points on an Intel Core CPU, since many applications, such as PC games, are optimized for single core performance. As such, if you're building a gaming rig, single-core performance is going to edge out multi-core performance every time. So AMD coming in hot with the Ryzen 5 5600X like this would not just be a challenge to Intel, it'd be game over. With 25% better single-core performance at this price, AMD would snatch the crown from Intel in the most crucial metric used by gamers and creatives when determining which CPU to build a system around. Like we said, we haven't run the numbers on the Ryzen 5 5600X ourselves (yet), but if the numbers we see in this leak pan out, boy howdy, Intel is in for a dark winter indeed.

steven36 posted a topic in Technology NewsAMD wants to avoid the launch day debacle rival Nvidia faced with its RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards, which scalpers have been purchasing using automated bots. As AMD prepares to sell new CPU chips and graphics cards, the company is apparently working to prevent scalpers from snatching up its products, according to a document leak. AMD recently sent a letter to vendor partners about setting up safeguards to stop scalpers from crashing the Ryzen 5000 and RX 6000 launch day sales, according to RedGamingTech and Moore’s Law Is Dead, which both obtained the document. AMD’s main concern is disappointing consumers on launch day should automated bots controlled by scalpers buy up all the inventory. “We expect that some purchasers (scalpers) may initially try to buy large quantities of our new graphics and processor cards and re-sell them at higher prices in the secondary market,” AMD wrote in the letter. “We also want to prevent site crashes or unresponsiveness due to the unexpected surges in traffic and any ambiguity about product availability and lead times,” the company added. In other words, AMD wants to avoid the launch day debacle rival Nvidia faced with its RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards, which immediately sold out when they went on sale last month. Scalpers are now hawking the cards on eBay for $1,000 or more over the normal pricing. In the letter, AMD calls on partners to implement “real-time bot detection mechanisms” to identify and block activity from suspected scalpers. Other safeguards include adding a CAPTCHA test to determine whether the user is a human, making sure purchases are limited to one per customer, and implementing an online queue-based system so users who miss out on the launch day sales can reserve a spot to buy the product once stock becomes available again. That all said, AMD is only “strongly” recommending its partners implement the safeguards. At the same time, the people who run and develop the bots for scalpers say they’re routinely coming up with ways to beat anti-bot detection mechanisms. So at best, AMD and its partners will likely only be able to slow down the scalping—not eliminate it entirely. Source
