AMD Ryzen 5 Mid-Range CPU Lineup To Launch On April 11
Earlier this month, AMD returned to competing with the consumer processor market with its high-end Ryzen 7 CPU series. Today, Advanced Micro Devices is ready to fasten its return as they continue releasing information on the upcoming mid-range Ryzen 5 series. The new CPU lineup products will consist of four SKUs (stock keeping unit): the 1600X, 1600, 1500X and 1400, which will be available around the world on April 11.
According to Gadgets 360, there are four new AMD Ryzen 5 Mid-Range CPUs, two of which have four physical cores and two of which have six. However, all of the four upcoming chips feature support for simultaneous and continues multithreading which allows each core to run two threads. The fastest among the new AMD Ryzen 5 mid-range CPU lineup is the 12-thread Ryzen 5 1600X. It is expected to have a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost target of 4GHz just like the Ryzen 7 1800X but with fewer cores. The price will start at Rs. 18,199 or $249 in the US and will go head to head with Core i5-7600K of Intel.
The second to the fastest CPU is the Ryzen 5 1600 that will run at 3.2GHz with boost target of 3.6GHz clock speed. It also contains six cores for 12 effective threads and will be priced at Rs. 15,799 or $219. On the other hand, the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X, as well as the Ryzen 5 1400, are both quad-core for 8-thread CPUs. The faster between the two runs at 3.5-3.7GHz while the other model runs at 3.2-3.4GHz. The prices are Rs. 13,799 or $189 and Rs 12,199 or $169 respectively.
AMD expects these newly released Ryzen 5 CPUs to be just as disruptive as its Ryzen 7 CPU models. They are also hoping that all the four lineups will also appeal to a wider audience as well as in the market. According to GameSpot, Ryzen 7 line CPUs come with unlocked multipliers, which allows unhindered manual overclocking. The AM4 motherboard of the Ryzen 7 is equipped with the proper chipset which includes X370, B350, or X300.
