In the next weeks, AMD will introduce a slew of Ryzen AM4 Desktop CPUs, including Zen 3D, Zen 3, and Zen 2 chips. The specs, prices, and configurations that these new AMD Ryzen 5000 & Ryzen 4000 AM4 Desktop CPUs will be packing with themselves were previously reported. The new line’s entire purpose is to provide more options to mainstream consumers who haven’t had anything new since the release of Zen 3.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be officially revealed with pricing in the coming days, according to rumours, but availability isn’t expected until April 20th. The other Ryzen mainstream chips are likely to be unveiled on March 15th but will hit store shelves on April 4th. So, to summarise the launch strategy:
- AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D – 20th April (Availability)
- AMD Ryzen 5700X/5600/5500/4600G/4500/4100 – 4th April (Availability)
- AMD Ryzen 5700/5100/4700 – April (Availability)
First off, we have the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is the only Warhol chip based on the Zen 3D core architecture. Thanks to its additional 64 MB 3D Stacked SRAM design, the CPU will have 8 cores, 16 threads, and 100 MB of total cache. With a TDP of 105W, clock speeds will be maintained at 3.4 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost. According to recent sources, the 3D V-Cache portion will not have any overclocking support.
When it comes to cost, the CPU will have the same MSRP as the 5800X at $449 US, which means that the non-3D chip will be reduced to $399 or even lower. The 5800X3D is more expensive than the Intel Core i7-12700K, which has more cores and threads but less cache. Performance comparisons between the two processors will be interesting to watch.
The Ryzen 7 5700X and Ryzen 5 5600 are the next CPU refreshes in the Zen 3 ‘Vermeer’ series. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700X will have 8 cores, 16 threads, a 3.4 GHz base clock, a 4.6 GHz boost clock, 36 MB of cache, and a 65W TDP. The CPU will cost USD 299, which is comparable to the Intel Core i5-12600K.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 processor will include 6 cores, 12 threads, a 3.5 GHz base clock, a 4.4 GHz boost clock, and 35 MB of cache, all in a 65W TDP chassis. The CPU will cost $199 in the United States, and it will compete with the Intel Core i5-12400, which costs a bit less in its ‘F’ variant.
There will also be three new SKUs based on the Zen 3’Cezanne’ die. These APUs will be cost-effective, and because they’ll be employing APU dies, they’ll have less cache. The Ryzen 7 5700, Ryzen 5 5500, and Ryzen 3 5100 are among the SKUs mentioned.
The Ryzen 7 5700 has 8 cores and 16 threads with a 24 MB cache, the Ryzen 5 5500 has 6 cores and 12 threads with a 19 MB cache, and the Ryzen 3 5100 has 4 cores and 8 threads with a 6 MB cache. The Ryzen 5 5500 will cost $159 US MSRP, making it slightly more expensive than the Core i3-12300, but with more cores and threads. The Ryzen 7 5700 is expected to cost around $249, while the Ryzen 3 5100 is expected to cost around $119.
The trio of AMD Ryzen 4000 parts based on the Zen 2 ‘Renoir’ dies comes last. The top Ryzen 5 4600G, with 6 cores, 12 threads, a base frequency of 3.7 GHz, a boost speed of 4.2 GHz, and 11 MB of cache in a 65W package, will be relaunched for the DIY category. This chip will retail for $154 in the United States.
The Ryzen 5 4500 is a non-iGPU model with 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.6 GHz base, 4.1 GHz boost frequencies, 11 MB cache, and a 65W TDP. This costs $129 in the United States. The Ryzen 3 4100 with 4 cores, 8 threads, a base speed of 3.8 GHz, and a boost clock of 4.0 GHz is the most entry-level SKU that will be priced the same as the Core i3-12100. The chip will have 6 MB of cache and a 65W TDP, and it will cost $99 in the United States.
AMD will purportedly enable AMD Ryzen 5000 & Ryzen 4000 Desktop CPU support across its complete 300-series motherboard family, in addition to these SKUs. This support will be enabled in the next AGESA 188.8.131.52 BIOS, which will also fix the TPM issues that were present in the previous BIOS.
