First benchmarks of AMD Vermeer
The leak would seemingly confirm that AMD Is indeed skipping the Ryzen 4000 series naming for its desktop parts. The 5000 series naming would align with the upcoming Cezanne (Zen3) and Lucienne (Zen2 – Renoir Refresh) mobile parts. The lineup should now be less confusing for consumers.
Unfortunately, the AotS benchmark does not record any specifications of the devices, such as CPU or GPU frequencies. It also does not confirm the platform. Hence we cannot confirm the clock speeds or a motherboard that was used for these test runs. There were few benchmarks presets tested, such as Crazy 1080p, 1440p, or even 4K. The benchmark provides the data for GPU and CPU generated framerates.
The Ryzen 7 5800X would be an 8-core part with Ryzen 9 5900X expected to be 12-core. We already had rumors about Vermeer 16-core part, likely to be Ryzen 9 5950X, but so far this SKU has not appeared in any leak under such a name.
AMD Vermeer, aka Ryzen 5000 AM4 desktop series, will feature Zen3 core design. The details on the new architecture are yet unknown, but the series would feature an enhanced 7nm fabrication process and are expected to be clocked slightly higher than Matisse (Ryzen 3000).
AMD will officially debut its Zen3 desktop processors on October 8th during a special event hosted by AMD CEO and president, dr. Lisa Su.
