AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Desktop Processors built on new “Zen 3” core architecture deliver across-the board leadership performance for gamers and content creators
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) introduced the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor lineup powered by the new “Zen 3” architecture. Offering up to 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache in the top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors dominate in heavily threaded workloads1 and power efficiency2, while the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor offers up to a 26% generational uplift in gaming performance3. With extensive improvements throughout the core including a unified 8-core complex with direct access to 32MB L3 cache, the new AMD “Zen 3” core architecture delivers a 19% generational increase in instructions per cycle (IPC)4, the largest since the introduction of “Zen” processors in 2017.
“Our commitment with each generation of our Ryzen processors has been to build the best PC processors in the world. The new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors extend our leadership from IPC4, power efficiency2 to single-core5, multi-core performance1 and gaming6,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit, AMD. “Today, we are extremely proud to deliver what our community and customers have come to expect from Ryzen processors – dominant multi-core1 and single-core performance5 and true gaming leadership6 – all within a broad ecosystem of motherboards and chipsets that are drop-in ready for AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors.”

So much for being environment-friendly.

The way they should approach this would be when buying new iPhone you could pick between regular price that includes the charger (even if it comes separately in a little basic cardboard box made out of 100% recycled cardboard) or if you opt for a phone without the charger, you’d only get the cable and a 20€ discount on the phone. Same for EarPods or whatever. Regular price with or 15€ off without. Right now it just feels like they removed all the extras and still sell you the main device at same price as before with the feel good story of saving the environment. While I don’t hate Lightning standard, just use the damn USB-C. Everyone is using it, even Apple itself is using it on laptops and tablets, that would actually help the environment. I liked the iPhone 12 presentation, but I rolled my eyes really hard when they tried selling me this BS about saving environment while charging me even more for the vanilla iPhone. What sucks even more is that everyone will follow this because it’s clearly there to maximize profits and it sucks for us consumers.
Nice law but they should have enforced a 3.5mm Jack or direct equivalent (like a magnetic connector variant) except in case of it being not possible (like the phone being legit too thin), and a mandatory USB-C compatibility for charging and data with at least an adapter provided.
A nice law would be to force every brands to have at least one phone without hole, notch and other stupid cut-out of the display per generation, because in what twisted version of the reality are we that almost every phones have HOLES IN THE DISPLAY, I swear if someone wake from coma from few years ago, he will think we all got completely crazy for this, this need to stop.
I hope european union will do something about this before all other companies follow this stupid trend.

You don’t mind them taking you for a mug and bleeding every last cent they can out of you? People like you with your complete indifference are the problem. I don’t have an iPhone. I don’t have an apple charging brick. It’s not so much the financial side of it. It’s them basics saying that you’re paying for everything. We’ll do nothing extra for you. Next thing they’ll be charging for the box or something stupid. They’re trying to turn accessories that in the past were just a freebie that everyone expected aa standard and turning these accessories into a new product range that they can exploit consumers on. It’s not about the cost of the items they omit. It’s the contempt they are showing for the customer by doing so. And they then have the absolute cheek to try and say that it’s for the good of the environment. This coming from a company that’s using children to plunder natural mineral resources some of which are finite to build their stupid phones.

As much as I absolutely despise them, there is a worse company or two. (Or several, that’s why I said I’m being generous) Companies like Ulefone use cheaper parts that don’t pass quality inspections while not letting their customers know about it. So when the phone randomly dies due to a failing part, it was completely Ulefone’s fault. At least Apple doesn’t have phones that randomly fail a lot of the time.
By the trends we saw so far, Android phones will most likely stop including chargers as well a year or so from now, so i definitely won’t be buying phones anymore if it comes to that, plain and simple.

If Apple really cared about the environment they’d cut it out with their successor to the throttling, which is a special chip called Tristar that breaks down every time you use another charger that wasn’t in the box. You can kill the phone for just using even a good, high quality charger. Suck a fat nut, Apple.
Ah yes Apple being environmentally friendly by including twice the packaging for a tiny pair of earbuds. Great move Apple. Second to worst company in history.
Omg this is becoming ridiculous.😂😂😂😂
My p30 pro for example has a case, fast 40wcharger, earphones, adapter, data cable, all on one box.
And still apple is selling every possible accessory separately. what a gear idea for saving the environment.

Iphone12 – 19$ for charger – 19$ for earpods = iPhone 11 price?!?
Do you have a ruptured cable from your old iPhone? Don’t worry you’ll buy a new one!
Environment or full pockets?
This is so great for the environment. Good job Apple. Thanks for nothing.
Good job apple, now you have to make two boxes instead of one to follow French law… What a dump move… Carbon what?
French iPhone 12 comes in two boxes to accommodate EarPods – GSMArena.com news – GSMArena.com
In 2020 Apple took a stand against unnecessary carbon emissions (and spending money on accessory production) and took away the charger and earbuds from the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro retail package, as well as from that of the iPhone 11, SE (2020) and XR. But France requires manufacturers to ship headphones with phones by law, so Apple had to accommodate the EarPods with its iPhones.
But because Apple’s new smaller iPhone retail box is standard across the globe, it packed it inside a bigger box that contains the EarPods. Note that Apple still doesn’t include a charger, just the earbuds.
Big box holds EarPods and new standard small iPhone box
Apple advises its customers to use existing chargers and EarPods, but also sells a new $19/€25 20W wired charger and $39/€45 wireless MagSafe charger and has deducted $10 from the price of EarPods – now $19/€19.
iPhone 12 Models Use Qualcomm's X55 Modem – MacRumors
An iPhone 12 teardown video on Chinese social networking site Weibo gives a close look at the L-shaped logic board and the modem chip.
The X55 offers support for both 5G mmWave networks and 5G Sub-6GHz networks, along with 5G/4G spectrum sharing, and it is Qualcomm’s second-generation 5G chip after the X50.
Reports in 2019 indicated Apple would use the X55 modem in its iPhone 12 lineup, and at the time, the X55 was Qualcomm’s fastest and newest 5G modem. Qualcomm in February 2020 introduced the X60 modem built on a 5-nanometer process, which is more power efficient than the 7-nanometer X55.
There was some speculation that Apple could adopt the X60 for the iPhone 12 lineup, but the X60 likely came out too late in the iPhone 12 development process to be considered for the new devices.
Next year’s iPhones will likely use the Snapdragon X60 modem from Qualcomm, which is the third-generation 5G modem chip that Qualcomm has manufactured. It will bring notable performance improvements in terms of battery draw, component size, and connectivity speed because it offers carrier aggregation for combined mmWave and sub-6GHz networks.
Apple used Intel chips for the iPhone 11 lineup, but switched to Qualcomm’s technology after it became clear that Intel would not be able to manufacture 5G modem chips. Apple settled a long-running legal battle with Qualcomm to get access to Qualcomm’s chip technology.
