As Intel gradually rolls out the 12th-generation Core series processors, AMD seems a little powerless in the client market. Before the release of the Ryzen 7000 series CPU based on the Zen 4 architecture, some methods are needed to slow down the pace of the opponent’s attack, and only a Ryzen 7 5800X3D cannot do it. In fact, although the Ryzen 5000 series based on the Zen 3 architecture has won the market and sales after its launch, it is subject to the allocation of production capacity and the lack of low-end and mid-range models for a long time, giving Intel breathing space, and the release of the Alder Lake platform is, even more, turned the tide.

According to reports on Wccftech, AMD plans to launch three new Ryzen 5000-series CPUs to counter the threat of Intel’s 12th-generation Core i5. The three CPUs are the Ryzen 7 5700X, Ryzen 5 5600, and Ryzen 5 5500, targeting the mainstream market and are expected to launch within the month.

The Ryzen 7 5700X is aimed at the Core i5-12600K, priced at around $279 to $299, with 8 cores and 16 threads, a 65W of TDP, and a Wraith Stealth cooler to provide better clock optimization on the basis of the Ryzen 7 5800X. Both Ryzen 5 5600 and Ryzen 5 5500 have a TDP of 65W, Ryzen 5 5600 is 6 cores and 12 threads. The performance will be weaker than the existing Ryzen 5 5600X, which may be 6 cores and 6 threads. According to the pricing, the competitors of the two are Core i5-12400 and Core i3-12100 respectively.
