Critic Reviews


Both of these models are stunning CPUs, and a big announcement from AMD that they're not just catching up with or shoulder to shoulder with Intel, but disappearing over the horizon into the sunset. On which metaphorical bookend we'll stop rambling and let you check your local retailer for stock.


However, if you need a few more cores for that demanding workload of yours, slap a good LCS on this proc, and your eyebrows will ryze alongside the smile on your face that'll last for days—well done, AMD, well done.

The Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5950X takes the mainstream flagship status away from its Zen 2 3950X predecessor. In doing so, it offers a new tier of performance in a variety of scenarios to buyers with £750 to spend on a processor. The Ryzen 9 5950X truly is a fantastic product.
