AMD Ryzen 9 4950X/Ryzen 9 5950X Engineering Sample Boosts up to 4.8 GHz

The AMD’s upcoming Vermeer processor series based on Zen 3 architecture are expected to be launched in later this year, to compete with upcoming Intel Rocket Lake-S processors. According to latest leaks from Igor’sLAB, a new AMD 16c/32t Vermeer engineering sample has the 4.8 GHz boost clock (48), and a 3.5 GHz base clock (35).

This Vermeer engineering sample is 16 cores and 32 thread CPU, meaning we are expecting a successor to Ryzen 9 3950X. Could be upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 4950X or Ryzen 9 5950X. This Vermeer sample is running 100 MHz higher on boost clock compared to 3950X, while the base clock has the same frequency.

According to latest rumors, AMD may skip desktop 4000 series in favor of 5000. This would actually make a lot of sense, as the current 4000 series lineup is extremely misleading.
