Human societies are modelled on the premise of problem solving taking advantage of the cognitive skills that man has developed through evolution. This evolution continued and man began to create tools to handle problem solving and ease the burden of cognitive stimulation while paving the way for more advanced tasks to be addressed. The computer has been the most revolutionary tool used to achieve this aim and has an evolutionary cycle that has seen them get better with each passing year. For these devices, the most important part is the processor which plays the role of the brain by handling all essential processes required for the system to function. They are used for various purposes including math problems, drawing, content creation and editing, gaming among others.
Gamers are an integral part of the today’s technology revolution, growing into a culture of its own. The game releases push the limits of processing power every year in a bid to create visually stunning and exciting games for the community. This has in turn forced the processors to evolve even faster to keep up with the demands of the gamers. AMD are a leading brand in the manufacturing of processors with their Ryzen CPU series providing stiff competition for its rival with its Zen 3 architecture.
They have shattered the competition based on the latest geekbench scores of their latest CPU, the 5000 series, which sported some interesting results. The new Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X CPUs packs 16 and 12 cores respectively and are the latest high-end processors from the company. They officially clocked at just under 5 GHz but when subjected to testing via geekbench 5, fell just below 5 GHz by a fraction. This is considering that AMD’s Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) technology that should offer faster speeds, was not a factor.
Their 6-core CPU outperformed its nearest rival Intel’s Core i9-10980XE by over 500 points in single core testing which marks over a 17% difference between the two. The company promised that it was 19% faster than its predecessor which was proved by the testing which saw it clock over 20% faster than its predecessor. Although other factors are to be considered, clock speed is often a good indication of performance with higher speeds reflecting higher performance levels. Both CPUs will be available from November 5 with the Ryzen 9 5950 X starting at $749 while the Ryzen 9 5900X will go for $549
