Prices and specs for AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D along with three new Ryzen 5000 and three more Ryzen 4000 desktop-grade SKUs leak out
Before releasing its Zen 4 processor to combat Intel’s Alder Lake models, AMD is expected to invigorate the mid-range and entry-level desktop processor sector with new Vermeer Ryzen 5000 and even some refreshed Renoir Ryzen 4000 models. First on the new releases list is the much anticipated Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with 3D V-Cache technology, which is now allegedly launching on April 20 according to the latest leaks coming from trusted sources close to Videocardz. Team Red has already revealed that 5800X3D is to feature slightly lower clocks compared to the 5800X, but the L3 cache will essentially be tripled from 32 MB up to 96 MB. Videocardz’s source informs that it should be priced at US$449.
There are three more Vermeer models that will try to cover the lower mid-range sector. A Ryzen 7 5700X processor with 8 cores and 16 threads is almost as fast as the original 5800X, comes with the same L3 cache amount and is supposed to cost US$299. Previous rumors were suggesting that the Ryzen 5 5600 and 5600 will not feature hyperthreading, but Videocadrz’s source lists these models with 6 cores and 12 threads. While both are 65 W TDP SKUs with similar frequencies, the R5 5600 comes with 32 MB L3 cache and could cost US$199, yet the US$159 R5 5500 only features 16 MB and is believed to be based on the laptop-grade Cezanne designs.
Last but not least, the refreshed desktop-grade Ryzen 4000 models include the US$154 Ryzen 5 4600G and the US$129 R5 4500 both with 6 cores / 12 threads and 8 MB L3 cache, plus the Ryzen 3 4100 with 4 cores / 8 threads and 3 MB L3 cache for US$99. All three models are apparently missing the integrated Vega iGPUs. Videocardz mentions that prices could change in the meantime.
