AMD Ryzen 5 CPU Series: The Biggest Game Changer Yet!
April 11th is the official launch date of the Ryzen 5 series of processors from AMD. You’ve probably seen that we’re really happy with the Ryzen 7 release, but I think Ryzen 5 is a more disruptive force than 7 is. One slide pretty much says it all, which is why I wanted to showcase it below. We have 4 core, 8 thread and 6 core, 12 thread CPUs that range in price from $169 to $249. From what I’ve seen, a 6 core CPU is the best you can get for gaming before additional cores start going to waste. Can anyone say gamer’s choice?
Below is the rest of the presentation from AMD. This will give you more details on what’s to come and help you make a final decision on if you should pick up one of these guys or not. (Hint, you probably should!)
