AMD might launch not one but four consumer Ryzen CPUs this month

AMD has been preparing as many as four new parts based on Zen3 architecture, mainly focusing around the mid-range segment.

According to MEGAsizeGPU, AMD is expected to launch another two 6-core Ryzen 5000 SKUs: Ryzen 5 5500 spirit Ryzen 5 5600. While the clock speeds of both parts remain unknown, there is a major difference between both parts: the 5500 does not support SMT and therefore only has 6 threads. The 5500 is set to cost less than Intel’s Core i3-12100 CPU, which officially goes for 122 USD. The 5600 non-X on the other hand would cost less than i5-12400 with 192 USD price tag.

AMD will release 4 new CPUs this month: R5-5500 6C6T R5-5600 6C12T R7-5700X 8C16T R7-5800X3D 8C16T 5500 has the same price as 12100, 5600 will be cheaper than 12400, and 5700X will be cheaper than 12600KF.

AMD is also preparing an 8-core and 16-thread CPU known as Ryzen 7 5700X, this CPU would cost less than Core i5-12600KF (MSRP of 264 USD). It would therefore be offered alongside Ryzen 7 5700G based on Cezanne silicon but with more capable Radeon Vega graphics subsystem, but fewer PCIe lanes and smaller L3 Cache.

Later this month the company will also launch Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 96MB of total L3 Cache. This push of Zen3 architecture for desktop AM4 socket appears to be the last major update for the socket before AMD switches to AM5 and Ryzen 7000 Zen4 “Raphael” architecture.
