It was previously reported that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D has begun shipping
, and the first retail versions may be available at the end of March. In addition, the EPYC processor code-named Milan-X and a new generation of Threadripper series processors based on the Zen 3 architecture will also be available in March.
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.
