The AMD Ryzen 5000 "Vermeer" CPUs based on the Zen 3 core architecture will be announced almost one and a half years after the Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" CPUs. The Matisse family was first introduced all the way back at Computex 2019 where AMD unveiled several chips & also talked about specifications and performance numbers. The Matisse family got several additions which included the flagship Ryzen 9 3950X and the recently released Ryzen 3000 XT family.
The announcement event will be live-streamed over at AMD's official YouTube page (11 am CT) which we have linked below:
"Join AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su as she details the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processor lineup powered by the groundbreaking “Zen 3” architecture."
"Ryzen is all about bringing out the best that computing can offer," and we look forward to bringing you more of the best with Zen 3.
The AMD Ryzen 5000 is highly anticipated because not only will it exceed the performance of the Zen 2 based processors, but Zen 3 is expected to deliver some major improvements in terms of IPC and also gaming performance, representing far better perf/$ values than the competition who have also announced their Zen 3 competitor but doesn't launch until Q1 2021. Given how AMD has clawed away major share and gained historical wins over the competition in major retail outlets, Zen 3 will just push that lead further.
We will be posting more information regarding all major announcements that are made during the event so make sure to keep your popcorn ready for another era in the PC gaming market.
