GIGABYTE confirms AMD Ryzen 5000 is codenamed ‘Vermeer’

Gigabyte updated its motherboard support page with Ryzen 5000 specs.

AMD Ryzen 5000 series “Vermeer”

AMD has so far not confirmed that its upcoming Ryzen 5000 series is codenamed Vermeer. This codename has been the only variable that has not changed in the past few months as we were covering Zen3 leaks. Even the rumors about AMD skipping the Ryzen 4000 series in favor of 5000 emerged just 2 months ago, unlike Vermeer, which had appeared in numerous AGESA firmware leaks as ‘VMR’.

Gigabyte CPU support list now features four Ryzen 5000 series SKUs, along with their specifications. The page confirms which BIOS is required to support the Zen3 processor on the Gigabyte 500-series motherboard. We chose the flagship motherboard called X570 AORUS XTREME to present the specs chart. This motherboard will require the F30 BIOS to support Ryzen 5000 series.

On November 5th AMD will launch two Ryzen 9 processors: 5950X and 5900X. The former is a 16-core and 32-thread processor with an official Cinebench R20 single-thread performance of 641 points. The first desktop processor to reach such a score. AMD heavily advertised Vermeer as gaming leadership series, outpacing Intel’s 10th Gen Core core Comet Lake-S processors in almost every game shown by AMD. Independent reviews will confirm whether AMD processors are indeed faster in all games.

AMD is not launching 600-series motherboards with Zen3. The manufacturer decided to provide a Zen3 BIOS upgrade for its for X570, B550, and A520 chipsets at Vermeer launch. Meanwhile, last-gen X470 and B450 chipsets will receive a BIOS upgrade in early 2021. This is of course an artificial delay to boost  500-series motherboard sales, as motherboard makers have repeatedly confirmed that they are ready to support the new processors on their 400-series motherboards.
