one of the great advantages that Intel enjoyed in recent years was the fact that their processors Core i5 and Core i3 developed sufficient performance to contain the call «hi-end» AMD . But the story has changed with the arrival of Ryzen . The Core i7 – 7700K managed to maintain status quo and return every blow that threw the Ryzen 7, however, the battle to be extended to the entire spectrum of processors, and what was historically a privileged position for the Santa Clara giant, could be compromised in a few weeks when Ryzen 5 make Act of presence.

The Ryzen 5 1400 maintains the TDP of 65W, but its L3 cache low to 8 megabytes and has 50 MHz of XFR. On the other hand, the Ryzen 5 1500 X asks cries to be overclocked. The size of your L3 cache is full (16 MB) and the XFR jump to 200 MHz extra. Prices have been confirmed at $169 for the Ryzen 5 1400, and $189 for the 1500 X.
