For desktop users, AMD unveiled the Ryzen 9000 Series processors, targeting gamers and content creators seeking the ultimate performance edge. These processors boast an average 16% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC) compared to the previous generation, making them ideal for handling demanding tasks. AMD claims that the flagship Ryzen 9 9950X processor takes the crown as the world’s fastest consumer desktop processor.

The Ryzen 9000 Series is built for the future, offering compatibility with the new Socket AM5 motherboard platform. This platform boasts support for cutting-edge technologies like PCIe 5.0, DDR5 memory, USB4, and WIFI7, ensuring users have access to the latest advancements in connectivity and data transfer speeds.


Further enhancing the desktop experience, AMD introduced the X870 and X870E chipsets, designed specifically for the Ryzen 9000 Series processors. These chipsets enable faster DDR5 overclocking with AMD EXPO Technology and offer increased PCIe lanes for a more robust connection ecosystem.

The X870E chipset boasts an additional advantage, featuring 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes with 16 dedicated to graphics. This translates to double the bandwidth compared to competing platforms when both PCIe 5.0 storage and graphics are utilized simultaneously.


The availability of the Ryzen 9000 Series processors is expected in July 2024 for DIY enthusiasts and system integrators.
