New AMD Ryzen 9000 CPU series appears in Alienware marketing

The AMD Ryzen 9000 series has appeared in marketing materials for Alienware desktops, suggesting the CPUs could be here sooner than anticipated.

The arrival of the AMD Ryzen 9000 series of processors is a case of when rather than if, with the Zen 5 CPUs expected some time in 2025. However, an unexpected appearance in some Alienware marketing may point to a more imminent arrival for the chips (if this isn’t all an honest mistake, of course).

Following AMD‘s new naming convention for its budget and best CPUs alike, the Ryzen 9000 series shouldn’t hit the market until 2025. This may still be the case, given this would mirror the Ryzen 3000 and 5000 series, both in terms of naming and time.

Strangely, though, Alienware marketing materials unearthed by Chiphell and shared by X (Twitter) user 9550pro, explicitly mention the unannounced family of processors. The original poster on the forum claims to have received the correspondence from the company following their purchase of an R15 gaming PC just a few months ago.

These materials, in all likelihood, were sent in error. This point of view feels all the more correct, given the recent leaks surround AMD Ryzen 8000G processors, which should arrive in 2024. Still, we can all hold out hope that Zen 5 is arriving sooner than expected.
