Dr. Lisa Su at her Computex 2024 Keynote unveiled the AMD Ryzen AI 300 Series processors and AMD Ryzen 9000 Series desktop processors.

Ryzen 9000

The Ryzen 9000 series is based on the Zen 5 architecture, which is built from the ground up for performance and energy efficiency – spanning from supercomputers to desktop PCs.

Model C/T Boost/Base Cache PCIe TDP
Ryzen 9 9950X 16 / 32 5.7/4.3 GHz 80 MB Gen 5 170 W
Ryzen 9 9900X 12 / 24 5.6/4.4 GHz 76 MB Gen 5 120 W
Ryzen 7 9700X 8 / 16 5.5/3.8 GHz 40 MB Gen 5 65 W
Ryzen 5 9600X 6 / 12 5.4/3.9 GHz 38 MB Gen 5 65 W

Spearheading the announcement is the AMD Ryzen 9 9950X processor – and, according to AMD, it is the fastest desktop consumer predecessor yet.

Ryzen 300 AI

AMD also unveiled the AMD XDNA 2 architecture which is an NPU that could deliver 50 TOPs of AI processing performance and up to twice the projected power efficiency for generative AI workloads compared to the previous generation.

Model C/T Boost/Base Cache Graphics cTDP NPU
Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 12/24 5.1/2.0 GHz 36 MB AMD Radeon 890M Graphics 15-54 W 50 TOPs
Ryzen AI 9 365 10/20 5.0/2.0GHz 34 MB AMD Radeon 880M Graphics 15-54 W 50 TOPs

According to AMD, the XDNA 2 is the industry’s first and only NPU supporting advanced Block FP16 data type, delivering increased accuracy compared to lower precision data types used by competitive NPUs without sacrificing performance.
