AMD holds its own budget line of processors Ryzen 5

The Announcement of the three processors of the flagship line of Ryzen 7 marketers are forced to be fidgety fairly Intel. The latter even reduced the prices of their solutions to remain competitive in a market where it has dominated for many years. But AMD doesn't seem to stop there and introduced a line of processors Ryzen 5, to afford which will be able almost anyone. The processors of this line will arrive very soon – April 11.

So, what is Ryzen 5? The new range consists of five models in the price range of 169 to $ 249 for the CPU. Created Ryzen 5 was to compete with the Core i5 processors from Intel. I think that now you have noticed a pattern in the names. Ryzen 7 was created in opposition to Core i7, and Ryzen 5 will compete for the palm with Core i5. AMD's strategy is simple: to create a sufficiently powerful processors, but to provide them with an affordable price, which should once and for all show competitors what can be done efficiently and inexpensively. So far, AMD it turns out pretty good, if you believe .

The budget ($169) Quad-core model Ryzen 5 1400X 8 threads simultaneously processes the data and operates at a frequency of 3.2 GHz, accelerating if necessary, up to 3.4 GHz. The processor TDP is 65 watts. The second model 1500X Ryzen 5 differs only in the base frequency of 3.5 GHz and the ability to accelerate to 3.7 GHz, and is thus already 189 USD. The third model Ryzen 5 1600 contains six cores 12 threads and processes, while TDP remains unchanged. The frequency at 3.2-3.6 GHz, and cost $ 219. Closes the four models Ryzen 5 1600X with six cores, twelve threads, and frequencies of 3.6–4 GHz. Increasing the TDP up to 95 W, and the cost model is $ 249.

What is the most unusual, the new processors will come bundled with the standard coolers. These devices are called Wraith Stealth (will come with Ryzen 5 1400) and Wraith Spire (Ryzen 5 1500 and 1600). This approach definitely will find a positive response among consumers, who do not have to spend extra money on cooling, brand new processors. Yet in the Network appeared the test results of the new line of processors, but AMD assures us that they have significantly outdone by comparable frequencies and number of cores of Intel due to the competent optimization of multi-core computing.
