Ryzen 5 3500 confirmed
The MD Computers technology website has listed the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 3500 processor on its website, with the scheduled release date "from 05/10/2019".
The product has been listed for sale, priced at 11,199 rupees (approximately 127 pounds / 157 US dollars). As of the launch date on its website, the Indian retailer appears to begin fulfilling orders for the Ryzen 5 3500 processor on October 5th, but nothing can stop AMD from releasing it early.
As Ryzen 5 3500 and Ryzen 5 3500X hope to challenge Intel in the market with their i59400F chips, AMD’s goal seems to be to achieve this goal by manufacturing these processors based on the 7nm process. There are also rumors about
that these two Ryzen models will be equipped with 3.6 GHz and 4.1 GHz boost clocks (for Ryzen 5 3500 and Ryzen 5 3500X, respectively). Recently, we have also seen that these two CPUs can also have different base clocks. The X variant of the card will have a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz, while the base clock speed of the non-X model is only 3.4 GHz.
Like many recent AMD products, the most we can deal with are the rumors and leaks. Although it is very interesting to follow this point, we do not yet have any hard spec list for these two processors.
We're not sure how good these cards will compare to similar Intel products, but what we do know is that another key enhancement to these cards may have a different cache. The 3500X will have a 32MB cache, while the 3500 will only have 16MB.
A part of me looks forward to these chips being released in the next few days, just to free us all from the pain of waiting. With so many announcements or rumors going to happen in the coming weeks, it will be a burst of excitement when we find out how well they pair with each other.
