AMD to ship Ryzen 5 PC chips on April 11 this year
After launching its Ryzen 7 chip for high-end computers, AMD has announced that it will ship its Ryzen 5 PC processors on April 11, 2017.
The chip maker also announced that it will start accepting its first orders for the new chip on the same day.
All of the four new versions of the Ryzen 5 chip will be priced at less than $250. Rival chip maker Intel is also offering its Core i5 chips at the same price range. However, the number of threads and cores in AMD’s Ryzen 5 chip apparently offers much more value for the price.
Kevin Lensing, corporate VP of the Client Business Unit of AMD, said, “We couldn’t be more proud and happy with the launch of Ryzen 7. The demand that we’ve generated has been truly surprising … This new processor has been so well-received in the marketplace, and we can’t wait to continue.”
The Ryzen 5 1400 (a 4-core/8-thread chip that runs at 3.2GHz & boosts at 3.4GHz) has been prices at $169, while the Ryzen 5 1500X (4 cores/8 threads, 3.5GHz/3.7GHz) and Ryzen 5 1600 (6 cores/12 threads, 3.2GHz/3.6GHz) will cost $189 and $219 respectively. The Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores/12 threads, 3.6GHz/4.0GHz) has been priced at $249.
