AMD managed to offer 19 percent faster IPC (instructions per clock) with the new Ryzen 5000 series processors. Furthermore, the new CPUs even boast higher boost speeds. The primary reason behind the performance increment is the new Zen 3 architecture.


This new architecture allows for a new unified 8-core CCX (core complex) design, reduced latency with direct L3 cache access, improved branch prediction, wider integer and floating-point engines, and twice the amount of L3 cache per core. The flagship Ryzen 9 5950X comes with 16 cores and 32 threads and it has base and boost speeds of 3.4GHz and 4.9GHz respectively. Lastly, there’s 72MB of total cache memory on this CPU.
