Tonight AMD officially introduced the new processor family Ryzen. These are 6 and 4-core models Ryzen 5 with Socket AM4, differing from emerged earlier 8-core processors with their more moderate price and slightly less level of computing power. Recently there was a leak on these processors, which basically proved correct. Ryzen 5 processors are manufactured by GlobalFoundries using 14 nanometer process technology and are characterized primarily by their unlocked multipliers, technology support SMT (Simultaneous Multi-threading) and level TDP of 65 to 95 W. The first four processor of this family will appear in electronic stores April 11.
Top-model of these processors is the chip Ryzen 5 1600X. He works with a clock frequency of 3,6 GHz and 4 GHz in turbo mode. The processor has extended support XFR technology and thermal package is 95 W. The price of this chip is $ 249. Ryzen 5 1600 is somewhat lower: 3,2-3,6 GHz clock speed-TDP about 65 W. This processor is rated by AMD of $ 219.
The other two processors are quad Ryzen 5 1500X and Ryzen 5 1400 at a price of $ 189 and $ 169. The first chip clocked at 3,5-3,7 GHz and thanks to the XFR can accelerate to 3,9 GHz. Slightly less Ryzen 5 1400 with operating frequencies 3,2-3,4 GHz. TDP and the two chips is 65 W, and of cache third level has 8 MB.
Ryzen 5 processors 1600 and Ryzen 5 1500X sold with cooling Wraith Spire, and Ryzen 5 1400 is paired with cooler Wraith Stealth. Unlike the cooling of processors Ryzen 7, these coolers have LED backlighting.
According to their tests from AMD in benchmark Cinebench, 6-core processor Ryzen 5 1600X turned out to be 69% faster than the Intel Core i5-7600K ($ 242) The. Now awaiting new tests of independent web portals and laboratories.
