AMD is making Ryzen 5 5500, 5600, and Ryzen 7 5700X CPUs to combat Intel’s 12th Generation risk.

AMD is developing new processors to counter the danger posed by Intel’s 12th Generation Alder Lake processors. The Ryzen 7 5700X, as well as the Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500, will be joining the much-discussed Ryzen 7 5800X3D in the near future. According to some estimates, the models will be the last AM4 vehicles to be released before the AM5 platform is introduced later in 2022.

To counter Intel’s 12th Generation threat, AMD is preparing Ryzen 5 5500, Ryzen 5 600, and Ryzen 7 5700X processors. AMD has returned to the low-cost processor market after a lengthy absence.

It is predicted that the new CPUs will be available later this month, according to Wccftech. AMD has been glaringly absent from the entry-level market throughout 2021, and as a result, it requires something to compete, which is why the new models are being introduced. It’s been more than a year since AMD’s mid-range Ryzen 5 5600X processor first hit the market. Since then, AMD’s mainstream market share has been left wide exposed to attack by Intel, which has gained a significant amount of ground. Notably, Intel has introduced two new CPU generations since the introduction of the 5600X.

In comparison to the 12600 and 12600K, the Ryzen 7 5700X is a 65W 8C/16T model that will compete with the Ryzen 7 5700. Its clock speeds are unclear, but based on what we know about the 105W 5800X, we should assume clock speeds to be lower in order to stay inside the 65W power budget of the processor. It is possible that the processor will have a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.5GHz. It should be less expensive than the Intel 12600 CPUs, and because of its low thermal design power, it could be a suitable option for individuals searching for a reasonably priced eight-core processor.

The two six-core CPUs, the Ryzen 5 5500 and 5600, are the next two processors on the list. The 5500 is rumoured to have a 6C/6T CPU, which indicates that it will be inexpensive and capable of competing against entry-level 12th Gen processors such as the 12100.

This is possibly the most crucial model because it will be pitted against the superb i5 12400, which got our Editors’ Choice award. According to reports, it will be a 6C/12T model that will look very similar to the current 5600X. Because of the lifespan of the AM4 platform, it might be a very reasonable and beneficial upgrade for those who are upgrading from older version Ryzen CPUs, however, it will have to be priced lower than the 12400 to compete.

AMD’s new CPUs will be joined by the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which will be released later this year. The vertically stacked cache is the first time AMD has implemented it in a CPU. It runs at lower clock speeds than the 5800X in order to keep the TDP under 105W, and it remains to be seen whether the additional cache can compensate for the slower clock speed reduction. AMD claims that the 5800X3D would boost gaming performance by up to 15 percent when compared to the 5800.

AMD’s AM4 processors could be the final chapter in the company’s history. The all-new AM5 platform, as well as the Zen 4 processors, is scheduled to be released later in 2022. According to the pattern established by Zen 3, AMD will only release mid-range to high-end CPUs at first, which means that the 5500 and 5600 could serve as AMD’s entry-level processors for the remainder of 2022.
