AMD Launch Affordably priced Ryzen 5000 and 4000 series processors


There are six new AMD Zen 3 and Zen 2 CPUs for the DIY market that were unveiled today. Ryzen 7 5800X3D price and availability data were also revealed, as well as a new 300-series chipset extension.

There are currently three additional versions in the series, all based on the Ryzen 5000. Ryzen 7 5700X, a new 8-core/16-thread processor with a 4.6/3.4GHz boost/base frequency, is at the top of the heap. Because of this, the TDP is now 65W, and the MSRP is $299. Despite its lower TDP, the 5700X lacks a box cooler like the 5800X.

It’s effectively a 6-core/12-thread version of the 6-core/12-thread 5600X with a lower clock speed of 4.4/3.5GHz. The Wraith Stealth cooler is included in the price of $199.


In the 5000 series, the Ryzen 5 5500 sits at the bottom of the heap. 5500 is basically 5600G with the integrated Vega 7 GPU deactivated and speeds decreased to 4.2/3.6GHz in the 5500G There are just 19MB of cache and PCIe 3.0 capabilities on this model. You get a box cooler for $159, and it’s a Wraith Stealth.

Ryzen 4000 series processors, based on the earlier Zen 2 architecture, are the next logical step. Ryzen 4000 series is built on the Renoir APU range with several changes, unlike the Ryzen 3000 series.

The Ryzen 5 4600G, the series’ flagship model, has six cores and twelve threads running at 4.2/3.7GHz. The G in the name reveals that the CPU has built-in graphics. A 65W TDP, 11MB of cache, and the Wraith Stealth cooling are all included in the price of $154.


The Ryzen 5 4500 follows, with six cores and twelve threads, a clock speed of 4.1/3.6GHz, an 11MB cache, and a TDP of 65W, but no integrated graphics. For $129, you can get the Wraith Stealth cooler with the 4500.

As a last option, we have the Ryzen 3 4100, which has 4-core/8-threads, 4-GHz clock speed, 6MB cache and 65W TDP. It costs $99 and comes with the Wraith Stealth cooling.

These components will be accessible on Monday, April 4.


A Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU from AMD, which was previously announced, will be on sale for $449 on Sunday, April 20.

You may want to refresh your memory on the 5800X3D, which is an AMD 5800X with a vastly increased cache capacity through 3D die stacking and AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology (see above). The 5800X3D features a large 96MB L3 cache, whereas the normal 5800X has a 32MB L3 cache. As of now, the 5800X is 15% quicker than the 5900X when it comes to gaming, according to AMD.

Even more importantly, AMD has stated that it would be introducing Ryzen 4000 and 5000 CPU compatibility to motherboards using 300 series chipsets. Even the A320 chipset variants are included in this. It is expected that the beta BIOS upgrades for support will be made available in April via the appropriate motherboard manufacturer’s website.
