Let's push it to its limits. However, AMD is not only planning to beat Intel with its performance but also by providing better value with its new CPUs.

A leaked slide regarding the Ryzen 5000 series has surfaced on the internet. The leaked image gives a glimpse of the upcoming overclocking potential.

With AMD's Ryzen 5000 series now officially on the way, motherboard manufacturers are planning their BIOS updates for older motherboards. These can be configured based on the memory speeds of the RAM that is installed in the PC. The slide features Infinity Fabric Clock (FCLK), Memory Controller (UCLK), and Memory Clock (MCLK), which are the main essential parts for AMD CPU overclock.

AMD does rely on memory, and using a good memory goes a long way in the Ryzen system. The latest Zen3 processors have significant performance improvements compared to the previous 7nm Ryzen 3000 series processors. AMD suggests getting a DDR4 - 4000MHz kit for overclocking.

The Red team's new Zen 3 based CPUs are here and they are much more powerful on the gaming front than Intel on paper as for now. The starter chipset will include four models: the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X, the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X, the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X, and the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X. There are reports about a Ryzen 5 5600 CPU as well. Additionally, the slightly older 400 Series motherboards will receive a firmware update early next year. The entire AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs can be slotted inside the AM4 Socket.
