AMD Ryzen 5000 & Ryzen 4000 AM4 Mainstream Desktop CPUs To Hit Stores in April !
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be officially announced with its pricing in the coming days but the availability isn’t expected until the 20th of April. As for the other Ryzen mainstream chips, those are expected to be announced on the 15th of March but will come to retail shelves slightly earlier on the 4th of April. So summing up the launch plans:
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU – 7nm Zen 3D ‘Warhol’ Powered
First up, we have the only Warhol chip that is based on the Zen 3D core architecture, this is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The CPU is going to offer 8 cores, 16 threads, and 100 MB of combined cache thanks to its additional 64 MB 3D Stacked SRAM design. Clock speeds will be maintained at 3.4 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost with a TDP of 105W. Recent reports suggest that there won’t be any overclocking support enabled on the 3D V-Cache part.
As for the pricing, the CPU is going to feature the same MSRP as the 5800X at $449 US which means that the non-3D chip is going to get a price cut down to either $399 or even lower. The pricing makes the 5800X3D more expensive than the Intel Core i7-12700K which does offer more cores/threads but lower cache. It will be interesting to see performance benchmarks between the two chips.
AMD Ryzen 5000 AM4 CPU Refresh – 7nm Zen 3 ‘Vermeer’ PoweredAd
Next up, we have a few Zen 3 ‘Vermeer’ CPU refreshes such as the Ryzen 7 5700X and the Ryzen 5 5600. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700X will feature 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 3.4 GHz, boost clock of 4.6 GHz, 36 MB of cache, all in a 65W TDP. The CPU will be priced at $299 US which puts it on par with the Intel Core i5-12600K.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 will feature 6 cores, 12 threads, a base clock of 3.5 GHz, a boost clock of 4.4 GHz, and 35 MB of cache, all in a 65W TDP package. The CPU will be priced at $199 US and will have to compete against the Intel Core i5-12400 which retails for a little less with its ‘F’ variation.
AMD Ryzen 5000 AM4 CPU Refresh – 7nm Zen 3 ‘Cezanne’ Powered
There are also going to be three new SKUs that will be based on the Zen 3 ‘Cezanne’ die. These APUs will be cost-optimized and since they are using the APU dies, they will feature less cache. The said SKUs include the Ryzen 7 5700, Ryzen 5 5500, and Ryzen 3 5100.
The Ryzen 7 5700 will rock 8 cores and 16 threads with 24 MB cache, Ryzen 5 5500 will rock 6 cores and 12 threads with 19 MB cache while the Ryzen 3 5100 will rock 4 cores and 8 threads with 6 MB cache. The Ryzen 5 5500 is going to retail at $159 US MSRP which puts it slightly more expensive than the Core i3-12300 but it does offer more cores/threads. The Ryzen 7 5700 could cost around $249 while the Ryzen 3 5100 could cost close to $119 US.
AMD Ryzen 4000 AM4 CPU Refresh – 7nm Zen 2 ‘Renoir’ Powered
Last up, we have the trio of AMD Ryzen 4000 parts based on the Zen 2 ‘Renoir’ dies. These include the top Ryzen 5 4600G which will relaunch for the DIY segment with 6 cores, 12 threads, a base clock of 3.7 GHz, and a boost clock of 4.2 GHz along with 11 MB of cache in a 65W package. This chip is going to hit retail for $154 US.
The non-iGPU variants include the Ryzen 5 4500 with 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.6 GHz base, 4.1 GHz boost clocks, 11 MB cache, & 65W TDP. This is priced at $129 US. The most entry-level SKU that is going to be priced the same as the Core i3-12100 is the Ryzen 3 4100 with 4 cores, 8 threads, base clock of 3.8 GHz, and a boost clock of 4.0 GHz. The chip will carry 6 MB of cache and a 65W TDP and is priced at $99 US.
AMD To Enable Ryzen 5000/4000 CPU Support on 300-Series Motherboards
In addition to these SKUs, AMD will also reportedly enable AMD Ryzen 5000 & Ryzen 4000 Desktop CPU support across its entire 300-series motherboards lineup. The new AGESA 22.214.171.124 BIOS will be rolling out soon which will enable this support and also fix the fTPM issues that were encountered on earlier BIOS. We have also got a confirmation that the AMD’s Radeon RX 6*50 XT refresh GPUs will also be unveiled on the 20th of April.
