AMD’s been on a roll lately since the global chip shortage has loosened up a bit. Last week they announced the long-awaited Threadripper Pro 5000 series for workstations. This week they started the salvo with the announcement of a slew of Ryzen Processors.

Leading the charge will be the Ryzen 7 5800X3D; AMD’s “fastest gaming CPU” till date. The 5800 X3D is essentially a larger cache version of the 5800X with an extra 64MB of V-Cache stacked on top for a total of 96MB of L3 cache. This essentially will increase performance in Gaming (about 15% faster than the 5900X as per AMD).

Ryzen 5 5600 6 12 3500 4400 35 MB TBD 65 W
Ryzen 5 5500 6 12 3600 4200 19MB TBD 65 W

Rounding up the posse, we have the Ryzen 7 5700X with 8C/16T with 32MB Cache, Ryzen 5 5600 with 6C/12T and 35MB cache and Ryzen 5 5500 with 6C/12T but with 19MB of cache. All of the chips will come with a 65W TDP.

Now for the next bit of info, this came from an industry source but I couldn’t cross-verify; so take the info with a truckload of salt if needed. The 5800X3D will come at a price point of 40K INR with the 5700X coming up at the sub 30K price point. The real banger would be the 5600 which is rumored to be at ~INR 18K and the 5500 at INR 14K.

All the prices are unconfirmed at this point and AMD might pull a doozy on us by changing just before launch, but for now, we are pretty convinced that these will be the final price point.
