AMD Ryzen 5 processors have arrived, starts at PhP 9,250

Following the release of their well-received Ryzen 7 processors last month, AMD has officially launched all four models of its Ryzen 5 series. The brand’s new SKUs promises to deliver immersive experience and high performance innovation to gamers and creators worldwide.

Featuring outstanding multitasking capabilities as well as new features of their Zen architecture such as the AMD SenseMI Technology, Ryzen 5 desktop processors adapts to individual needs with incredible responsiveness and performance.

“AMD Ryzen is a proven game-changer, ultimately bringing innovation and competition back across PC market segments, and we are excited to introduce the next tier of AMD Ryzen processors to the market today,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. “AMD Ryzen 5 revitalizes the mid-section of the desktop market, offering consumers excellent pricing while providing a smooth and impressive overall experience, whether for high-performance gaming or demanding applications.”

Starting today there are two 6-core and two 4-core AMD Ryzen 5 models available, all featuring AMD simultaneous multithreading (SMT) technology. All AMD Ryzen processors support the new AM4 ifrastructure, with motherboard designs already broadly available from top motherboard manufacturers.

Designed for smooth gaming and broadcasting, the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1600 models aims to deliver true workstation-class performance in a new market segment. The 1600X and 1600 models are two of the highest-performing and lowest power 6-core desktop processors that consumers can buy, with 12-threads delivering a decisive advantage in multi-core processing capability in its price level.

Meanwhile, the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X and 1400 are designed for performance gaming and processing featuring 4 processor cores with 8 threads for high performance gaming and processing, with AMD SenseMI Technology to analyze and adapt to customer needs. To deliver the best gaming experience possible, the 1500X features up to 200MHz of XFR (extended frequency range) when used with superior coolong – among the largest frequency ranges seen on an AMD Ryzen processor to date.

We’ve been to the official announcement of Ryzen 5 series in AMD’s Beijing Tech Day. We were actually surprised at what Ryzen 5 offers. We were also lucky enough to review the flagship of the Ryzen 5 series, the 1600X, and we must say that we’re impressed with its performance, especially at its price point. Much like the 1800X, the 1600X offers top-tier performance at almost half the cost of the competing processor.
