AMD may soon release four new processors
It’s no secret that within the year AMD will gradually phase out AM4, that is, the processor platform that has been the basis of the entire adventure with Ryzen so far.
But in the past year, there hasn’t been much new on the AMD front. Instead, Intel came on the scene with the 12th generation Core and made its way into the groove, among other things, such as the Core i9-12900K.
Meanwhile, it now appears that AMD already has plans to do some more fun with its previous platform than we previously thought. New leaks and Rumors At least he says that AMD is likely to release up to four new processors this spring.
New and unconfirmed processors could be Ryzen 7 5700X, Ryzen 5 5600 and Ryzen 5 5500.
Before, the company was only open to one upcoming model, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D – the 5800X with so-called “3D vertical caching technology”. According to AMD, this same model should, on average, be able to increase gaming performance by up to 15 percent on average, when measured against the Ryzen 9 5900X.
As for the other three, which have been just rumors so far, it’s not a matter of a 3D cache.
The Ryzen 7 5700X is said to offer 8 cores / 16 threads. This is the same as the Ryzen 5800X, so expect lower clock speeds and possibly a lower TDP of 65W instead of 105W.
On the other hand, the Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500 will each be six cores, and the latter will also offer only six process threads – which in this case can guarantee good gaming performance at a good price.
With the exception of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, price is also the bottom line here — and for AM4 to stay in the spotlight until the next processor platform is market-ready.
The hope, of course, is that the Ryzen 5 5500 will be able to compete with the Intel Core i3-12100, while the Ryzen 5 5600 will likely be aimed at the i5-12400. As of today, these Intel models are around 1200 and 2000 kroner.
For the Ryzen 7 5700X, a Core i5–12600K (F) is likely to be the target, so we’re talking about a price tag just under 3,000kr.
How much will the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X3D “flagship game” cost, it’s hard to say, but we think AMD will try to find a price point that doesn’t hurt too much.
