AMD Ryzen 9000 Leak Points To Four Zen 5 Processors At Launch

Expert Verified By

4 Ryzen 9000 CPUs At Launch!

Story Highlight
  • AMD’s Ryzen 9000 lineup, featuring Zen 5 cores, has been leaked.
  • Gigabyte confirms the upcoming AM5 motherboards, including the X870 model, hinting at the exclusion of the X770 series.
  • The Ryzen 9000 series will introduce four SKUs.

The whole range of AMD’s Ryzen 9000 lineup based on Zen 5 cores has been made public. Details of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9000 and the new 800 series motherboards have shown up in a presentation slide leaked by Wxnod on Twitter.

Why it matters: AMD has been dominating the CPU market for a while, so its next-gen lineup is important to continue the momentum.

It appears that Gigabyte has confirmed the availability of the X870 on the upcoming AM5 motherboards. AMD will, therefore, skip the X770 series in favor of its upcoming motherboard generation.

Gigabyte X870 Aorus Master is compatible with Ryzen 7000 and 8000 processors currently in use. However, as the leaked presentation has verified, the Ryzen 9000 (Granite Ridge) series is the main focus.

AMD appears to be developing at least four new SKUs: the Ryzen 9 9950X (16 cores), Ryzen 9 9900X (12 cores), Ryzen 7 9700X (8 cores), and Ryzen 5 9600 (6 cores).

The AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 SKUs will continue to use the single CCD design, while the Ryzen 9 CPUs will use the dual CCD arrangement, sharing 32 MB of L3 cache with each CCD.

Furthermore, per the Gigabyte slides, the Ryzen 9000 series will support DDR5-5600 Mhz memory by default. Meanwhile, EXPO (overclocking profile) up to 8000 MT/s will also be supported.

The leaked slides also validate that Gigabyte will offer cheaper motherboard options based on B850 and B840 chipsets, which have been referenced in previous leaks and are already under development.

While there is no official launch date, AMD is anticipated to launch the Ryzen 9000 series at Computex next month.
