AMD Ryzen 7 hit the shelves earlier this month and has become the talk of the town thanks to its massive multi-threading performance gain which stands toe-to-toe with some of Intel’s highest end Core i7 CPUs for less than half the price. And now, they’re coming out with the AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs based on the Zen core microarchitecture which will retail on April 11 with the top of the line Ryzen 5 1600X CPU costing $249. Given the price bracket, you’ll see a lot of AMD Ryzen 5 vs Intel Core i5 comparisons and AMD’s multithreading seems to have similar gains over the Intel Core i5 counterparts. Ryzen 5 CPUs are going to be available in both 6 core 12 thread and 4 core 8 thread variants.
