  1. Testing by AMD performance labs as of 9/2/2020 based on the average FPS of 40 PC games at 1920x1080 with the High image quality preset using an AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900X processor vs. Core i9-10900K. Results may vary. R5K-002
  2. Engineering projections are not a guarantee of final performance. Performance projection by AMD engineering based on expected Cinebench R20 nT, Keyshot, VRay, Blender and DaVinci Resolve performance vs the Intel Core i9-10900K desktop processor. Specific projections are based on reference design platforms and are subject to change when final products are released in market. R5K-001
  3. Precision Boost Overdrive requires a compatible AMD Ryzen Threadripper, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processor, or Ryzen 5000 Series processor and a motherboard compatible with one or more of these processors. 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen processors including the Ryzen 3200G processor are not compatible with Precision Boost Overdrive. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of specifications and in excess of factory settings, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. GD-135.
  4. Testing by AMD Performance Labs as of 06/03/2019 utilizing a Ryzen™ 7 3700X and Radeon™ RX 5700 running in PCIe® Gen 4 mode vs. Gen 3 mode. Results may vary. RZ3-44
  5. Testing as of 05/20/2019 by AMD Performance Labs using a 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Processor and Phison PS5016-E16 PCIE4.0 NVME 2TB in Crystal DiskMark 6.0.2. Results may vary with configuration. RZ3-12
  6.
