AMD’s promises were true, and for the first time in a tremendously long time, its chips dominate Intel’s rival Core processors in every possible way. “Ryzen 5000 simply gives no quarter to its Intel arch-nemesis in any single task,” our review declared. “Heavy lifting multi-core work? AMD. Light single-threaded tasks? AMD. Gaming? AMD. PCIe 4.0? AMD. No need to throw away your existing motherboard? AMD.” We dissect what that means on the show.
