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.
A Bigger Slice Of The Pie
AMD may have priced the Ryzen 7 CPUs very competitively against the Intel Core i7 processors, but the sub-$300 market is twice as large. So they are quickly introducing the AMD Ryzen 5 processors to try and win a bigger slice of the pie.
The AMD Ryzen 5 Key Features
The AMD Ryzen 5 processors will feature the same AMD Zen features as the Ryzen 7 CPUs. This includes the AMD SenseMI technology that we first revealed in The Complete AMD Ryzen “Summit Ridge” Tech Briefing.
Here is a primer on AMD SenseMI by Mark Papermaster, Senior Vice President & CTO of AMD.
The AMD Ryzen 5 processors will also be multiplier-unlocked, allowing for easier overclocking. In fact, AMD has announced that all Ryzen processors will be multiplier-unlocked. Awesome!
The AMD Ryzen 5 processors will continue to support two threads per core. The only real difference is the number of processor cores they offer.
The first slew of AMD Ryzen 5 processors will offer either 6 processor cores, or 4 processor cores :
- the Ryzen 5 1600X – 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.6 GHz core clock, 4.0 GHz boost clock
- the Ryzen 5 1600 – 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.2 GHz core clock, 3.6 GHz boost clock
- the Ryzen 5 1500X – 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.5 GHz core clock, 3.7 GHz boost clock
- the Ryzen 5 1400 – 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.2 GHz core clock, 3.6 GHz boost clock
