AMD is holding a Zen 3 event at the beginning of October, and surprisingly, the next generation of Ryzen could be released that very same month. Yuri Bubliy, author of DRAM Calculator for Ryzen, is claiming that Ryzen 5800X and 5900X processors will be released on October 20.

ComputerBase has not only backed up this date but added one of its own. “ComputerBase received similar information, which promised a date for October 20 and 27, respectively,” an editor wrote.

We’re not sure why there’s two dates, but the 27th seems more realistic in terms of availability – October 20 would only be twelve days after AMD’s Zen 3 event (October 8).

Yuri Bubliy also claims that AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards will be available by the end of November. Red team’s opening volley is expected to include the flagship “Big Navi” model, which many are calling the Radeon RX 6900 XT.

    We better start adding 2 months to these release dates, when we can actually buy the product.

    Just for kicks last night I was checking Amazon UK for 3080&3090’s and saw a 3090 that didn’t say out of stock/unavailable/etc. Clicked on it. There was a disclaimer saying expected ship date in 1 to 2 months. Well, at least I got a good laugh out of it.

  2. I’m not really a fan of this numbering scheme. Skipping the whole 4000 series seems weird to me. I know it’s not a huge deal or anything that would keep someone from buying one but for the OCD types out there it just looks weird.

  3. If the launch goes smoothly, and the performance gains are there I will be enjoying a new system for myself for Christmas!

    They didn’t skip the 4000 series. Those are laptop parts. And they wanted the desktop and laptop part numbers to coincide with each other. The 5000 series will have desktop and laptop Zen 3 parts.
