Watch AMD's Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 'Where Gaming Begins' Livestream Here

Update: AMD just announced the details of its Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 chips, and you can find the full rundown of official specs, performance, and pricing in our AMD Makes Zen 3 Official: Ryzen 5000 Promises 19% Better IPC, 1080p Gaming Dominance article.

AMD plans to announce its hotly-anticipated Zen 3 'Vermeer' processors on October 8 at 9am PT. The company will livestream its "Where Gaming Begins" event, which you can watch below.

According to the description listed on the livestream landing page, AMD will brand the new Zen 3 desktop PC processors as Ryzen 5000. While you wait for the livestream to begin, check out our Zen 3 all we know article, which outlines all of the publicly-available information AMD has shared about the chips, along with some of the interesting tidbits we've pieced together.

AMD's Zen architecture has redefined our expectations for the desktop PC, taking away the performance lead from Intel in several key areas, like pricing, heavily-threaded content creation applications, and power consumption, all while offering a better value proposition and free bundled coolers. 

All that's left is for AMD to finally take the gaming performance lead from Intel to assume complete dominance of the desktop PC market. Given AMD's marketing push towards gaming and content creation on its website and the "where gaming begins" name of the event, we certainly expect to learn more on that front during the live stream.

    Wouldn't some of you agree, that AMD already has an actually meaningfull performance lead? And by lead I personally understand that you get better multithread, multitasking performance in relation to cash spent for CPU/mobo altogether, and referenced to actual power draw. Intel's lead by 5-10% of fps when one considers already high fps (~150) is not really usable.
    On the other hand, it's hard to say that such runner up as AMD - smaller, poorer, definitly lower market share in all areas can become a leader. It won't, what it can do is to provide GOOD (I don't use BETTER on purpose) product at reasonable price.

    I have a feeling this is going to me similar to Nvidia's recent launch where they will announce a load of good stuff but you won't actually be able to purchase any of it for 6 months or so.
    Today you still can't find a R3 3300X for sale.

    As far as gaming is concerned, which is specificially what you quoted was about, Intel is still leading by 10-20% in high refresh rate gaming. This is why it got called the last frontier of AMD's dominance. AMD has the lead in nearly everything else, Zen 3 will give it the last ~20% it needs to beat Intel at nearly everything at least until Rocket Lake comes out next year.

    what are the estimates for Rocket Lake performance increases vs Comet Lake-S?

    I would have to agree its 12pm for me so right in the middle of my lunch break.

    Working from home so I would have been watching regardless.
