AMD Ryzen 5 in Australia from 11 April

By

AMD’s Ryzen 5 desktop processors will launch worldwide on 11 April, offering disruptive price-to-performance. They feature the powerful and efficient “Zen” architecture in 6-core,12-thread as well as 4-core, 8-thread options.

All Ryzen processors support the new AM4 infrastructure, with motherboard designs being produced from top ODMs. Announced at CES 2017, AMD and its motherboard partners have already shown a wide array of new motherboards from ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI, all built upon the following desktop chipsets for AMD Ryzen processors – the X370, B350 and the A320, the latter intended for mainstream PCs at new, consumer-friendly price points.  

The AMD Ryzen 5 line-up also includes new Wraith coolers, including the Wraith Spire and the Wraith Stealth, available with select processors. These new AMD thermal solutions are designed to provide near-silent operation.

Jim Anderson, senior vice-president and general manager, AMD Computing and Graphics Group, AMD, said, “Ryzen will ultimately bring innovation and competition to virtually every segment of the PC market. Ryzen 5 is the next big step on that journey, designed to achieve new levels of compute performance for millions of PC users.

"AMD reinvigorated the high-performance desktop market with Ryzen 7 earlier this month, and AMD Ryzen 5 now brings the power and efficiency of the 'Zen' core to users in the highly popular sub-US$300 segment of the market.”
