AMD Ryzen 5 now available

AMD has announced the immediate availability of its new desktop CPUs Ryzen 5 . At the start, four models are available with 6 or 4 cores available, at a price between 169 and 249 dollars. Especially the two six core variants offer the performance of a workstation processor according to the enterprise in the middle price segment.

 AMD Ryzen 5 (screenshot: AMD”AMD Ryzen 5 processors are designed for high application performance, as well as even smoother gaming”, informs press release in a . “The 1600X-and 1600 models offer a performance that is comparable and in particular are designed with the workstations for TV broadcasts and extremely fluid gaming experience here. Development of 1500X-and 1400 models powerful gaming and high-performance data processing in the foreground were first and foremost.”

1600 X 1600, 1500 X and 1400 complement the end of February-released premium CPUs Ryzen-7-series models Ryzen 5. With them together, the new processors have the extended frequency range technology (XFR), which raises the processor clock depending on the available cooling up to 200 MHz. AMD’s implementation of simultaneous multithreading (SMT) allows also each processor core to execute two threads.

of up to 4 GHz fast 1600 X Ryzen 5 a up to 87 percent to offer thanks to six cores performance as Intel’s core i5 7600 K, however only four cores. The dissipation of the processor (TDP) specified with 95 Watt AMD. The other three Ryzen-5 models are with a TDP value of 65 Watt clear lightweight. You can reach speeds of between 3.2 and 3.7 GHz, without XFR focusing up on the Ryzen 5 16 MB level 3 cache available 1400 all new models. The latter must settle MB level 3 cache 8.

as the Ryzen 7 processors Ryzen 5 series is based on the Zen architecture. With their AMD has introduced many new techniques, including more than 100 integrated sensors, voltage, power, and temperature accurately capture to allow an optimal control of the core voltage and the processor clock, as well as a minimum energy consumption.

the processor speed can Ryzen thanks to the sensors and an intelligent logic in increments of 25 MHz adapt – and according to AMD up to 1000 times per second. Neural net prediction to accelerate the execution of commonly used applications using artificial intelligence. Smart prefetch is in turn a learning algorithm, which captures the behavior of software to predict their requirements and to provide data in advance.

in addition, AMD’s new AM4 infrastructure use, which supports speeds up to 2667 MHz DDR4 RAM. Motherboards with the chipsets X 370, B350 and A320 are available among other things from ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, gigabyte and MSI. AMD sees mainly the chipset A320 as the ideal basis for Ryzen-5 desktops.

in this country is to have the cheapest Ryzen 5 for 189 euros. The Ryzen 5 1500 X euros 209. Two of the six core models of 1600 and 1600 X charge the money bag with 209 or 249 euro. It is to note that AMD 1400, 1600 and 1500 X equips only the models from the factory with a processor fan. He comes also on computer players aligned Ryzen 5 1600 X, however, without its own cooling solution.
