AMD Ryzen

AMD is getting ready to launch four Ryzen R5 SKUs, according to leaked information. If the report proves accurate, the company will launch the new mid-tier processors on April 11, and prices will start as low as $169. The 1600 and 1600X processors will feature six cores, while both the 1500X and 1400 series will come packing four cores, all with hyper-threading.

Here's what the R5 family could consist of at launch:

Processor Cores Threads Clock speed Price
R5 1400 4 8 3.2GHz
R5 1500X 4 8 3.5GHz
R5 1600 6 12 3.2GHz
R5 1600X 6 12 3.6GHz

Just like the R7 line, these new SKUs will also come featuring the company's Extended Frequency Range (XFR) tech and will be unlocked for more advanced overclocking. We'll likely have more details to follow come April 11.
