AMD Unveils Next-Gen "Zen 5" Ryzen Processors to Power Advanced AI Experiences

During Computex 2024 in Taipei, Taiwan, AMD announced a groundbreaking series of next-generation architecture and products aimed at ushering in a new era of AI experiences. The company introduced the AMD Ryzen AI 300 Series processors featuring the world's most powerful Neural Processing Unit (NPU) with 50 TOPS of AI processing power, surpassing Copilot+ AI PC requirements. These processors, built on the new AMD XDNA 2 architecture, offer three times the AI engine performance of the second-generation AMD Ryzen AI.

Powered by the new "Zen 5" architecture, the Ryzen AI 300 Series processors come equipped with up to 12 high-performance CPU cores, 24 threads, and 50% more on-chip L3 cache memory compared to previous-gen "Zen 4" processors for thin and light laptops. They also feature the latest AMD Radeon 800M Series graphics based on the AMD RDNA 3.5 architecture, providing fluid framerates and AAA gaming experiences.

AMD is working closely with industry partners like Acer, ASUS, HP, Lenovo, and MSI to bring more AI PCs enabled by the Ryzen AI 300 Series processors to market. Ecosystem partners like Microsoft and Zoom are collaborating with AMD to expand the possibilities of AI PCs.

Additionally, AMD announced new chipsets for Socket AM5 motherboards, the AMD X870E and X870, designed to seamlessly integrate with Ryzen 9000 Series desktop processors. These chipsets support PCIe 5.0, DDR5, USB4, and WIFI7.

AMD also continues its support for the AM4 platform with two new additions to the Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor family: the Ryzen 9 5900XT and Ryzen 7 5800XT.

In addition to the new Ryzen processors, AMD announced the Radeon PRO W7900 Dual Slot workstation graphics card. Optimized for high-performance platforms supporting multiple GPUs, it delivers up to 38% better performance-per-dollar in Llama 3 70B Q4 than the competitive offering. This card is designed for local AI development on ultra-high-performance AI workstations, featuring 96 compute units, 192 AI accelerators, and 48GB of GDDR6 ECC memory.
