The chipmaker introduces four Processors New ones from the New Age, which will be launched under the name RYZEN 5, and provide a refreshing offer to price levels that are much more relevant for many of us
As promised, it has not been long since the introduction of theRYZEN The first 7 to the arrival of new models, cheaper and perhaps even more interesting, at least for a certain segment of the potential consumer audience:RYZEN 5, which will hit store shelves "all over the world" on April 11, meaning in a little less than a month. Afikoman or a blow not written in the Haggadah? Feel free to judge for yourself.
The flagship product of the new sub-series will be the Ryzen 5 1600X, with six physical processing cores and SMT technology that provides 12 logical processing cores, at a base frequency of 3.6GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 4GHz (which will receive a potential increase of up to 100MHz as part of the new XFR technology Of the company), without a built-in graphics core of course but with an open frequency multiplier upwards, a pair of DDR4 memory channels, an AM4 holder, the same 16 megabytes of L3 cache as in the Ryzen 7 models and a 95 watt thermal envelope - which is similar to the models The others of AMD Proposed with such a cover indicates that no unit will be included Cooling In the package, and buyers will need to rely on Cooling Their own designated to be purchased separately. Price - $ 250 in the United States, not including taxes.
Under the flagship, the Ryzen 5 1600 will be even more intriguing with the same six physical cores and 12 logical cores, although at a lower frequency of 3.2GHz as a base and up to 3.6GHz in acceleration (with the addition of 100MHz to XFR in this case as well), 16 The L3 cache megabyte, and a more modest 65W thermal envelope that will allow it to be supplied with the Spire model cooling AMD As in Ryzen 7 1700. The price here will be 220 USD only, which should put pressure on the quadrilateral (HyperThreading-free) quadrants Intel.
Two additional models will be the Ryzen 5 1500X and the Ryzen 5 1400, both with four physical processing cores and eight logical processing cores at 3.5GHz to 3.7GHz and 3.2GHz to 3.4GHz respectively (the first with an impressive XFR of up to 200MHz and the second with XFR (Up to 50MHz), open frequency multipliers, no graphics cores, and thermal envelopes of 65W, when the first model is offered for 190 dollars together with Cooling Spire, while the second will be offered for only $ 170 with Cooling The humble Stealth (and silence?) More.
On paper, the proposals of AMD Are just fantastic, with the potential to receive 12 logical cores at a price where we had only quad-core access so far, and the ability to get eight logical cores rather than four cores at price levels that are supposed to be translated into 800 or 900.
However, it is worth noting that the CPUs of AMD Will continue to target a more "advanced" audience that also purchases a dedicated external video card for its system, while Intel's offerings will continue to be more relevant to anyone interested in a single unit that meets both general processing needs and graphics processing needs. In addition, it will be interesting to find out if the degree of compatibility from which the products of AMD With a much more common and mainstream core quantity,RYZEN 7, which offered a large number of parallel processing units to a market that was apparently not yet ready.
There are many more important questions and questions that need to be answered before we can declare a winner or even a leader in this race, but the very fact that at last we have a greater variety of models, Processors, Technologies and approaches to talk about and discuss them are welcome and very gratifying for us, and we hope that this will continue to be the situation in the market from now on, in a constant and constant manner.
In the framework of the current declaration, AMD Also confirmed that the cheap Ryzen 3 family processors will arrive as planned during the third quarter of the year, and now we find it difficult not to wonder what exactly the company plans to offer us in this family: will these processors be quadrature cores without SMT technology, Which offers Intel In its Core i5 family? Or maybe there will be Processors Quadrature cores with SMT but reduced working frequencies? Of course there will be Processors (And quadrature logical cores), which will try to compete with the rival's new and impressive offering within the framework of the E-Pentium Its latest, so there is much more to wait for.
