The Red team has already surprised the world with it’s amazing 7nm Ryzen 3000 processors based on Zen 2 microarchitecture. The architecture has helped AMD to maximise the performance of the new Ryzen CPUs by huge margins both for single-threaded and multi-threaded workloads.

For gaming, the Ryzen 3000 CPUs have even excelled or has given a toe-to-toe performance to that of the Intel CPUs. This has made the new 7nm CPUs much more versatile and productive for gaming as well as other heavy workloads. But the thing remains that AMD has no budget offerings based 7nm CPUs.

The recently released Ryzen 3 3200G and Ryzen 5 3400G based on 12nm process do help gamers but ultimately they are not getting the superior performance that the 7nm CPUs are providing. So, AMD is likely to bring something for the budget gamers in the coming days.

We already reported some leaked benchmarks of 6 core & 6 thread Ryzen 5 3500 and it seems the Red team is also planning to launch the Ryzen 5 3500X alongside. This will be a tactical move to suppress the sales of the Core i5-9400F and 9500 budget CPUs by Intel which are insane value for money CPUs for gamers.

The Ryzen 5 3500 and the 3500X specifications have been leaked earlier this week by a Thai media outlet ExtremeIT. There’s even an entire video showcasing the Ryzen 5 3500X: from unboxing to gaming performance, check out the PC build from here.

The PC build comprises of the upcoming Ryzen 5 3500X along with MSI B450 motherboard which is paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX1660 and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. According to the site’s performance benchmarks our new CPU ranks higher than the Intel’s i5-8600 and lies just some points behind the Intel i5-8600K.

We already reported the specs of the Ryzen 5 3500 and here’s another glance to it along with the new Ryzen 5 3500X:

AMD launches new 7nm Ryzen 3000 CPUs based on Zen 2 architecture

Ryzen 5 3500 Specs:

  • Cores: 6
  • Threads: 6
  • Base Clock: 3.6GHz
  • Boost Clock: 4.1 GHz
  • TDP: 65W
  • Total Cache: 16MB

Ryzen 5 3500X Specs:

  • Cores: 6
  • Threads: 6
  • Base Clock: 3.6GHz
  • Boost Clock: 4.1 GHz
  • TDP: 65W
  • Total Cache: 32MB

So the new Ryzen 5 3500X is 6 core & 6 threaded CPU like its brother and with 65W TDP. It has a base clock frequency of 3.6GHz and a healthy boost clock of 4.1 GHz with huge 32 MB of cache. The specs of Ryzen 5 3500 is quite the same but has a lesser cache of 16MB.

If you compare with the i5-9400 by Intel that has a base clock of 2.9GHz and only 9MB of cache, the Ryzen offering is much better, even the i5-9600 has a lower base clock of 3.1GHz. The Intel Core i5-9400F is one of the most selling budget gaming CPU that costs around $140 to $150.

Leaks suggest that that the Ryzen 5 3500X will cost around $150 while the Ryzen 5 3500 will cost around $137 which is pretty cheap and considering the performance its a value for money CPU.

When the gaming performance of the Ryzen 5 3500X is compared with Intel Core i5-9400F, the Ryzen counterpart performs neck-to-neck with the Intel star. Surprisingly in CS: GO the Ryzen CPU performs considerably well and certainly the AMD one is lot more efficient and future-proof.

With better support memory support (DDR4 3200), PCIe 4.0 support and overclocking support you can always maximise the performance of your Ryzen CPU. So, eventually with Ryzen 5 3500 and Ryzen 5 3500X, AMD again will have enough options for its massive fanbase who need the 7nm CPU benefit.
