AMD could have a clutch of new processors debuting later this thirty day period alongside the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is rumored to go on sale late in March.
This arrives from the Chiphell forum via properly-identified leaker HXL on Twitter, who promises that AMD is set to generate a Ryzen 7 5700X product, as nicely as Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500 CPUs.
Wccftech, which noticed the tweet, statements its sources are expressing the very same factor: that we can expect this trio of clean processors at some position in March.
The concept is that the Ryzen 7 5700X is set to operate with 8-cores (16-threads) with a 65W TDP and could square off towards Intel’s Main i5-12600K, with very similar pricing pitched at about the $299 mark in the US (about £225, AU$405), or maybe a bit less. Supposedly the box will contain the Wraith Stealth cooler.
Both equally the Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500 are rumored to be 6-main CPUs with a 65W TDP, and the previous will have SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading, for 6-cores and 12-threads) whilst the latter may well not (this means it’d just be a straight 6-main chip).
Wccftech says it isn’t positive on no matter if the 5500 will dispense with SMT, but it will make feeling and elsewhere we have viewed chatter (by way of VideoCardz) that this will certainly be the scenario.
As at any time with the rumor mill, get all of the earlier mentioned with a large serving to of skepticism.
Analysis: Keeping the fort against Alder Lake
Unleashing a number of new Ryzen 5000 models to get on Intel’s Core i5 and i3 processors does make feeling in terms of AMD keeping the fort in opposition to Alder Lake till Zen 4 arrives, and shoring factors up somewhere else absent from the top rated-end, where by the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is set to enter the fray.
The noticeable presumption would be that these need to be competitively priced versus Alder Lake, of system, as Wccftech theorizes. If the Ryzen 7 5700X does arrive in at $299 (about £225, AU$405) as outlined over, although, that would no question need changing the price of the 5600X which now has that same MSRP – however apparently we take note at Newegg in the US it’s now dropped down to $269 (about £205, AU$365). Some rejigging of all round pricing may perhaps be needed throughout the Ryzen array, of course, with all these new entrants inbound – if they materialize.
The other issue to bear in intellect right here is that even if these 3 rumored Ryzen processors do occur to fruition along with the 5800X3D, some models might be OEM-only, meaning that you won’t be able to invest in them straight – they’ll only be included with prebuilt PCs. As at any time, we’ll have to wait around and see, but we should not have to hold out extended as these chips need to, in idea, be out in a handful of months.
