Ryzen 5 2600x ryzen 7 2700x
After a lot of speculation and rumors, AMD has confirmed that the mysterious Ryzen 5 3500 is a reality. Although PC manufacturers like MSI and Hewlett-Packard have more or less confirmed its existence through compilation lists, this is the first time AMD has finally raised its head and admitted that it does exist.
company has established a product list page and provides the following statement;
``We are providing AMD Ryzen 5 3500 processors to OEM partners and channels in certain regions. This processor will enable our partners to take full advantage of AMD’s most advanced CPU platform, providing powerful gaming and high-speed productivity performance, as well as industry-leading PCIe 4.0 support, AMD Precision Boost Overdrive and Ryzen Master utilities. ''
As you can see, there is a major problem; only OEM partners have access to the chip to integrate into their build. It is extremely unlikely to be shipped as an independent consumer product of any description.
AMD confirmed that the Ryzen 3500 has six cores, six threads, a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz, an increased speed of 4.1 GHz, 16 MB of L3 cache, and 65 W TDP. In terms of specs, it is fine between the Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 3600. In fact, it is almost the same as the 3600 model, but it lacks multi-threaded support.
Although some people will be disappointed, the Ryzen 3000 series already has plenty of options, so interested individuals don't have to look far to find a similar chip. Especially the shape of the Ryzen 3500X, its price is around 150 US dollars, and even the performance of the Ryzen 5 2600 is more or less comparable.
Those who want the real chip can check out the new Alienware Aurora R10 Ryzen Edition, which is equipped with Ryzen 3500 and AMD Radeon RX 5700 and 8GB or 16GB of RAM.
