AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 line of desktop processors are available now. These are the first chips from the company that include its next-gen Zen 3 architecture.

Replacing last year’s Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 desktop chips the new 5000 series still uses AMD’s 7nm process but offers a 19 percent increase in instructions per cycle. The Ryzen 5000’s flagship chipset includes four different processors: Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and its flagship the Ryzen 9 5950X.

If you are waiting for the new graphics cards AMD recently announced, you’ll have to wait a bit longer before you can order one. The Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 will go on sale on November 18th for $649 and $579, respectively. While the Radeon RX 6900 XT will go on sale on December 8th for $999.
