AMD Ryzen’s Six-Core, Four-Core Ryzen 5 Processors To Launch In Q2 2017
Ryzen 5 Processors and Ryzen R3 family lineup is still in the waiting list to get a launch date. But AMD has just issued a launch window for the fans. According to the Advanced Micro Devices, Ryzen R5 six-core processor in Q2, 2017.
AMD Ryzen’s eight-core processors R7 series will soon launch by March 2, 2017. Then, next in the line will be the Ryzen 5 Processors that will be a blend of 6-cores and 4-cores processors with SMT feature enabled. These chips will start from entry-level price of $179 and go up to mid-range price tag of $259 USD. All the chipsets of this family will contain hyper-threading feature.
Ryzen R5 processors are charted for Q2, 2017 release date, which roughly puts it between May-June for a launch date.
Performance wise Ryzen 5 Processors out-stand from its rival Intel Core i5 7600K by 69% in multithreaded tests. This is achieved by the XFR feature and some decent overclocking that AMD Ryzen architecture allows.
On a related subject, just yesterday we discussed Ryzen CPUs Master overclocking tool in detail. Here are the features that will be available once the AMD Ryzen Master tool goes live:
