AMD Ryzen 5000 B2 Revision May Prove Disappointing

AMD reportedly plans to refresh their popular Ryzen 5000 processors, but they may be less impressive than we initially expected.

In a statement to Benchmark.pl, AMD revealed that it plans to release a revision for the Ryzen 5000 processor, but that these new models will not bring any performance improvements or additional functionality.

“As part of our continued effort to expand our manufacturing and logistics capabilities, AMD will gradually roll out on the AMD Rigen 5000 Series desktop processor. [the] B2 revision over the next six months. It does not improve functionality or performance, and does not require any BIOS update. “

The previous generation, AMD updated some Ryzen 3000 processors with special “XT” variants. These updated models did not change anything about the processors they changed outside of the extra 100 MHz on the boost clock. In real-world use, the XT and non-XT models performed equally.

It looks like what is happening here. Rumors suggest that AMD is updating the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5950X with the new model, and that the boost clock speed of 5950X (like the 3900XT of the previous-gen) will be increased to 100MHz. AMD’s statement suggests that these updates will not have any clear branding and will gradually take their work through the market. As far as boosting 100 MHz is concerned, it is still up in the air.

Such modifications can resolve many issues that cannot be resolved through software updates. In April, AMD warned users about vulnerabilities in Zen 3 processors similar to the Specter and Meltdown exploits from 2018. This exploit comes with Predictive Store Forwarding (PSF), which is implemented at the hardware level to speed up code execution. The Ryzen 5000 refresh will probably solve these problems.

A refresh can also help to get more processors in the hands of those who want them. Although the Ryzen 5000 processor is easier to find than a graphics card, AMD is still feeling the lack of global semiconductors and the high demand for its latest range.

Regardless, it is now clear that AMD is not releasing the more powerful Ryzen 5000 processor. AMD seems to have its sights on the Zen 4 and Ryzen 6000, rumored to bring features such as PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 into a new AM5 socket.
