AMD Zen 5 Reportedly Offers Up To 40% Single-Core Improvement Over Zen 4

Expert Verified By

Massive Boost For Next-Gen AMD Processors!

Story Highlights
  • AMD Zen 5 is expected to make a debut in the second half of 2024.
  • According to leaks, it offers a 40% improvement in single-core performance.
  • Zen 5 processors will be compatible with the current AM5 platform.

Later this year, AMD is expected to release its next-generation processors. If the recent leak from hardware insider @Kepler_L2 is true, then we are in for a real treat with the next AMD Zen 5 core architecture.

Anticipated to ship in the second half of 2024, Zen 5 could usher in a new age of gaming processors.

Why it matters: AMD is already dominating the CPU market on platforms like Amazon. Such leaps could serve to extend its lead further.

Zen 5 Already Sounds Like A Dream For PC Gamers

According to Kepler_L2, AMD’s Zen 5 Ryzen processors are going to be extremely powerful chips and are expected to bring a 40% improvement in performance over their predecessors.

The fact that these performance gains are “core to core” based is even more impressive. AMD has gradually been increasing the single-core performance of its Ryzen chips over the years.

The company’s initial goal for the Zen (1) core architecture was to reach a 40% increase in IPC (Instructions Per Clock). However, AMD ended up exceeding expectations with a remarkable 52% improvement upon release over the Excavator architecture.

AMD might be aiming for similar performance gains with the launch of Zen 5 chips. However, it isn’t made clear whether this improvement is based on IPC or general performance improvement over the board.

The future “Granite Ridge” desktop CPUs, which have recently surfaced in shipping manifests, will also be powered by the Zen 5 architecture. These Zen 5-based processors will be drop-in replacements for the Raphael series and should be compatible with the existing AM5 platform.

While the initial numbers are indeed impressive, AMD will be able to further improve the performance of Zen 5-based chips with the launch of the 3D V-Cache lineup later on. Therefore, we await the official reveal later this year.
