Where is Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3?

Published: 4 weeks ago | Comments

Okay, so far so good, Ryzen looks great, everyone can preorder Ryzen 7 before reviews are even up (which by the way may not be such a great idea, just saying..), but where is Ryzen 5 and 3?

According to this slide Ryzen 7 will be available on March 2nd, Ryzen 5 will launch in the second quarter and Ryzen 3 will launch in the second half of 2017. That said I would expect Ryzen 5 around April/May and Ryzen 3 after Radeon RX 500 series, so probably closer to May/June.

Now speaking about mid-range Ryzens, guys over at Ocaholic shared a list of all Ryzen CPUs. Since they own an engineering sample, I assume they might also have more information that was included to compile their chart. Either way, they claim that Ryzen 5 will cost between 259 and 175 USD, while Ryzen 3 will either cost 149 USD or 129 USD.

AMD wants to ship 1 million Ryzens in March

According to DigiTimes, AMD has been preparing for Ryzen launch for quite some time. A high volume of Ryzen CPUs was prepared so that everyone can (pre)order a unit.

AMD announced that 82 motherboards will be available shortly after the launch. Currently, the choice is rather limited, only few motherboards are from real enthusiast segment, which is quite strange considering that only high-end Ryzen 7 were announced.
