We have all been blown away by the raw processing power of the AMD Ryzen 7 processors. Even its gaming performance proved to be quite competitive against the Intel Core i7 processors. But as exciting as the Ryzen 7 processors are, they may be out-of-reach for many people. This is where the AMD Ryzen 5 processors come in.
