Although the launch of the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor that includes 3D V Cache technology is scheduled for April 20, the semiconductor manufacturer has launched new 5000 and 4000 series processors. These come to compete with the mid-range and entry of Alder Lake processors introduced by Intel recently.
Regarding the Ryzen 5000 based on Zen 3, there are now three new models in the series. At the top is the new Ryzen 7 5700X, which is mostly similar to the 8 core/16 thread 5800X but with boost/base clocks reduced to 4.6/3.4 GHz. As a result, it now has a higher TDP lowest 65W and priced at $299.
Similarly, the Ryzen 5 5600 is essentially the 6 core/12 thread 5600X with clocks reduced to 4.4/3.5 GHz. It is priced at $199 and includes the Wraith Stealth cooler.
