Following up on the launch of its high-end Ryzen 7 processors, AMD has revealed details around its next series: Ryzen 5. Specifically taking aim at Intel's Core i5 segment, AMD's Ryzen 5 lineup all come in at under $250 and, as recently rumored, are set for an April 11 launch.

Here's a look at the Ryzen 5 lineup as revealed by AMD:

Processor Cores Threads Clock speed Price
R5 1400 4 8 3.2GHz
(3.4GHz)
$169
R5 1500X 4 8 3.5GHz
(3.7GHz)
$189
R5 1600 6 12 3.2GHz
(3.6GHz)
$219
R5 1600X 6 12 3.6GHz
(4.0GHz)
$249

Like their Ryzen 7 counterparts, the Ryzen 5 chips support DDR4 RAM chips, are unlocked and feature AMD's Extended Frequency Range (XFR) tech, which should contribute to some solid overclocking capabilities. We'll have to wait until full benchmarks are available for Ryzen 5, but it sounds as if AMD is squarely targeting Intel's i5 chips — and is nipping at the heels of some i7 chips — on both price and performance.
