The announcement of the Ryzen 5 processors, the younger counterparts AMD Ryzen 7, can be classified as paper: the official AMD event took place on March 16, that is, more than a week ago. But the timing of the start of mass sales declared completely different — It was planned to put new chips on the shelves of stores only on April 11. But the user is impatient, and some retail chains suffer from the same disadvantage. The supply of Ryzen 5 to the warehouses of the leading retail chains of the world were made in advance to avoid deficit.
But, as it turned out, some neglects the plans of Advanced Micro Devices and already offers to buy one of the Ryzen 5 processors right now. There is a recently created, quickly gaining popularity thread on the Reddit resource. It usually laid out pictures of freshly accumulated processors by the happy owners of the new Ryzen, for example, Ryzen 5 1600 (6C, 12T, 3.2/3.6 GHz, 3mbait L2, 16 MB L3).
It is possible to violate the rules for the announcement of new processors and are not very good, but now those who want to purchase Ryzen 5, but hesitate, will receive the latest data and make a decision in favor of the purchase, or refuse it. The prices are, frankly, democratic: Ryzen 5 1600X costs only $ 249 and have a frequency formula of 3.6/4.0 GHz with 6 full -fledged nuclei with SMT support. Ryzen 5 1600 in this set seems to be a more interesting solution: it costs $ 219, its official upper bar is only 3.6 GHz, but what will prevent this chip from dispersing to 1600x? Finally, the four -core models Ryzen 5 1500X and Ryzen 5,1400 cost less than $ 200, supporting, meanwhile, SMT and all overclocking possibilities.
