Some fresh on the internet leakage details a pair of allegedly incoming finances Ryzen 3rd-gen processors that AMD has in the wings, the Ryzen 5 3500X and Ryzen 5 3500 (the latter of which has been earlier rumored).

As Wccftech studies, specs and some pricing facts of the chips had been uncovered by Severe IT (a Thai tech web-site), and they line up with what we have earlier listened to.

Specifically that the Ryzen 5 3500 has 6-cores and six-threads (which means there’s no simultaneous multi-threading in this article), with a foundation clock velocity of 3.6GHz and boost to 4.1GHz, and a TDP of 65W.

Interestingly, the Ryzen 5 3500X has an similar spec, the only big difference currently being that it has two times as significantly cache with 32MB on-board (definitely the simple 3500 runs with 16MB – which will put a small dent in its efficiency amount in comparison).

The price tag for the Ryzen 5 3500 is listed at 4,190 Thai Baht which works out at all over $137 (about £109, AU$202), even though there is no price specified for the 3500X, help you save for the truth that it will be in the 4,000 Baht vary somewhere.

These price range processers are aimed at tackling Intel’s strong-offering and inexpensive Core i5-9400F, a variation of the Main i5-9400 that is a bit less costly due to the fact it ditches integrated graphics to provide at close to $150 (about £120, AU$221) – while it’s available for $140 (about £112, AU$206) at the time of producing.

So it would make feeling that the Ryzen 5 3500 will be positioned to undercut that rate, maybe at $130 or $135 (about £108, AU$199), with the 3500X costing a little bit a lot more, and probably achieving up to $150 (about £120, AU$221).

Spec shootout

On paper, the purported Ryzen 5 3500 and Core i5-9400F typically stack up really carefully spec-clever, with Intel’s Coffee Lake Refresh component also offering 6-cores and six-threads, and Turbo to 4.1GHz, additionally a TDP of 65W.

Nonetheless, there are some telling distinctions in that Intel’s finances Core i5 has a considerably slower foundation clock of 2.9 GHz, and only 9MB cache in comparison to the 16MB or 32MB apparently on supply with these new Ryzen chips.

And of study course the Ryzen 3000 newcomers will reward from Zen 2 architecture, which boosts directions for each clock (and consequently all round efficiency) significantly in comparison to AMD’s past-gen CPUs, and there are other bonuses which need to be factored in like Ryzen’s PCIe 4. assist.

In brief, by all accounts Intel has a fight on its fingers at the lower-finish of the processor sector, and to underline that, some presentation slides had been spilled on Twitter by BullsLab displaying how the 3500X compares with the 9400F in some gaming benchmarks (run with a GeForce GTX 1660 graphics card).

General performance concerning the two chips is rather even in these match benchmarks (which include things like Apex Legends, CS:GO, Dota 2 and PUBG among other people). Intel has a slight guide in some, AMD in other people (whilst the Ryzen chip pulls away a bit far more in the Counter-Strike benchmark).

Appealing situations certainly, but obviously a large amount will rely on accurately where AMD pitches the price tag of these two new processors, which are absolutely close on the horizon now (until all these slides and leaked data are faked, which would seem highly unlikely).

AMD is already very substantially killing it of late, at least in the desktop CPU market figures we have found just lately, with the Ryzen 5 3600 staying a particularly strong performer – and now that chip is set to get some really serious backup, at the very least if this rumor pans out.
