According to rumors, we are close to the processor reveal AMD Ryzen 9000 “Granite Ridge” for desktop PCs. Now a leak shows how a SKU performs in the CPU-Z benchmark, delivering around 19% more single-thread performance compared to a Zen 4-based Ryzen 9 7950X.

The only detail revealed about the CPU-Z screen concerns the TDP, which is 170w. So we could be looking at a processor with 12 or 16 cores based on Zen 5. The most recent rumor says that the lineup will have CPUs with 6, 8, 12 and 16 cores, just like the Ryzen 7000.

Scoring 910 points in the CPU-Z single-thread test, the Ryzen 9000 in question would deliver around 19% more performance compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X, a top-of-the-line SKU equipped with 16 cores and which delivers around 767 points in the same test.

Along with this same leak, the person responsible also stated that the standard performance of Zen 5 processors would be superior to Zen 4 with 3D V-Cache technology in games, which is no small feat, since Ryzen processors ending with X3D tend to be the best games in their category.

Other signs of the arrival of the Ryzen 9000

Motherboard manufacturers have also pointed to AMD’s next generation of desktop processors. Both MSI and ASUS have confirmed Ryzen 9000 support on their AM5 socket boards, which the Zen 5 CPUs will use.

Last month, a photo of one of the new generation processors appeared on the internet. The engineering sample had the same code as the one that was leaked now, except for the last two digits. This is important? Not necessarily, but it reinforces that we are talking about the same thing.

With the new processors, AMD should also launch new chipsets for motherboards. Instead of using the 700 series, the manufacturer should jump to the 800 series, according to a rumor. With the first Zen 5 desktop CPUs, AMD should use the X870, B850 and A840 chipset, which are for different segments, as it has been doing with all generations of Ryzen.

The expectation is that AMD will reveal the Ryzen 9000 during Computex 2024 next week, an event that Adrenaline will cover in person.
