Ryzen 5 56000X features Zen 3 architecture the most comprehensive design overhaul of the "Zen" era. The Zen 3 can extract an average of 19% additional performance from every MHz of frequency relative to the previous generation. The architecture transitions to a new "unified complex" design that brings 8 cores and 32MB of L3 cache into a single group of resources. This dramatically reduces core-to-core and core-to-cache latencies by making every element of the die a next-door neighbour with minimal communication time. Latency-sensitive tasks like PC gaming especially benefit from this change, as tasks now have direct access to twice as much L3 cache versus Zen 2.
AMD StoreMI technology is a powerful tool for PC enthusiasts that want to improve load times, boot times, file management, or system responsiveness:
- Maybe you installed Windows to a hard drive, but don’t want to reinstall anything to get SSD-like performance: StoreMI can help.
- Or maybe you wish the hard drive with all your games could get you into the match at SSD speeds: StoreMI can help.
- AMD StoreMI technology accepts HDD and SSD pairings of any capacity
Whatever your storage acceleration needs, AMD StoreMI technology automatically pairs your most-used files with an SSD cache for peak performance.
AMD StoreMI technology has been rebuilt from the ground up with a new algorithm that makes it safe and simple to use. Now, a StoreMI configuration simply mirrors your most-used files to an SSD of your choosing, leaving the original copy intact. The software seamlessly redirects Windows and your applications to use the faster mirrored copy. Removing or disabling the SSD cache leaves all of your files on the hard drive, right where they started.
Ryzen Master Utility
Every AMD Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory, so you can personalize performance to your taste. AMD provides the AMD Ryzen Master utility to access this powerful advantage. As AMD Ryzen Master has evolved to support an increasingly diverse set of CPU products and features, the user interface has also grown increasingly complicated. Master Utility has a useful "basic view" that provides access to the most essential features and telemetry. You can toggle between the "basic view" and "advanced view" to see the overclocking features that are right for you.
