AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Priced at $450, Mid-April Launch Pricing of Other New Chips Surface

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the company's ambitious new 8-core/16-thread Socket AM4 processor that claims to match the Core i9-12900K "Alder Lake" in gaming performance, will launch at an MSRP of USD $449, according to prices of several upcoming AMD Ryzen processors leaked to the web. The 5800X3D is clocked lower than the 5800X, with 3.40 GHz base and 4.50 GHz boost frequencies, but the large 96 MB L3 cache from the 3D Vertical Cache memory, overcomes this.

The Ryzen 7 5700X is an interesting new 8-core/16-thread part. It's based on the "Vermeer" MCM just like the 5800X, and unlike the 5700G that's based on the "Cezanne" monolithic silicon. The 5700X is clocked at 3.40 GHz base, with 4.60 GHz boost, compared to the 3.80 GHz base and 4.70 GHz boost frequency of the 5800X. The Ryzen 7 5700X is launching at $299 MSRP, which implies that the company is cutting the MSRP of the Ryzen 5 5600X that originally occupied this price-point.

Update Mar 9th: Correction: the Ryzen 5 5500 is a 6-core/12-thread part.

Speaking of Ryzen 5, we see the introduction of the new Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X). This part, too, is based on the "Vermeer" MCM, just like the 5600X, but with reduced clock speeds. It ticks at 3.50 GHz base, with 4.40 GHz boost; compared to the 3.70 GHz base and 4.60 GHz boost frequency of the 5600X. AMD is pricing this part at $199 MSRP, making it the true successor to the Ryzen 5 3600. It's interesting to note here that AMD is launching the 5700X and 5600 despite stating that the "Cezanne" based 5600G and 5700G APUs succeed the 3600 and 3700X, respectively.

Yet another interesting part is the Ryzen 5 5500, which unlike its predecessor, the 3500, is seeing a wider retail-channel launch. This is a 6-core/12-thread part and 16 MB of L3 cache instead of 32 MB on the 5600 (X). At this point we don't know if the 5500 is based on the "Vermeer" MCM or the "Cezanne" monolithic die (with its iGPU disabled), given its L3 cache size. The chip is priced at $159, and AMD likely wants this to square off against the Core i3 "Alder Lake" quad-core parts.

Lastly, there are the Ryzen 5 4600G, Ryzen 5 4500, and Ryzen 3 4100. These three are very likely based on the "Zen 2" based "Renoir" monolithic silicon. Apparently AMD is sitting on heaps of them, and wants to flood the desktop market with them. From these the 4500 and 4100 come with the iGPU of the "Renoir" silicon disabled.

As for availability, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is expected to launch on April 20, 2022. We have no information on the launch dates of the other parts (although we expect them to be around that time).

5500 1/2 L3.
Oof.
I smell DOA there.
5600 and 5700X are both great, altho I don't exactly see a point as to the latter - they could've just made boxed version of the 5800 ... ?
Also, give Prism w/ the 5700X or riot.

I'm tempted for the 5600 since it'll be the last for AM4. But then again idk how much of an uplift I'd get from RTX 2060.

Maybe in my mental wishlist for now.

As expected from the comparisons to 5900X, it's priced just like 5900X post price cuts.

According to the source you've given the R5 5500 comes with 6c12t not 6c6t :)

Its prolly to nudge the price battle with Intel.

5800x is cheaper than 5700x - do not hope that they just raise current model prices

I have a Ryzen 3600 and a B450 Tomahawk too and looking for a cheapish upgrade to 5600, just first i would like to a see a final bios for my MB.

5800x3d vs 5700x. $150 for 64MB cache. I think that’s going to be a tough sell.

It’s a little steeper than I thought it would be might have to pass on this and bank for AM5.

If the 5700X is priced at 300EUR at max, then I know what I'm getting next.

Highest binning part obviously; and cache is proberly the most expensive part on any chip anyway. It's a single CCD chip as well. Lowest possible latency.

I'd take the 5800X 3D all day.

You should be comparing 5800X3D to 5800X. The defense is 100$ for 64MB cache and presumably 15% performance increase.

I hope they don't postpone the release; i just bought the 5800X thinking that it's going to be a lot longer 'till they release the X3D.
Guess i was wrong.
Aaanyway i'm getting the 5800X3D no matter what.

No word on that, but there's no architecture change, so making a BIOS update for it should be easy. I'd expect it to be supported on 400-500 series boards once a BIOS update drops.

Yeah, considering the Ryzen 7 5800X did debut at $450, it made sense that the 5800X3D would take its spot as part of this refresh, especially since you can get the 5800X for as low as $360 (Best Buy/Amazon US) now.

At least it's better than the previous refresh, with the 3x00X to 3x00XT, which was a very minimal change (+100 MHz and more mature process).

The article says :
"AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the company's ambitious new 8-core/16-thread Socket AM4 processor that claims to match the Core i9-12900K "Alder Lake" in gaming performance"
So i7-12700KF is just -2.5% slower at 720p vs 12900K (with even smaller difference in above resolutions, which i think is the target audience that will buy a $450 CPU) but will be at least +20% in multithreading apps like Cinenench and cost $400, so it has the same CPU+M/B price and is a new platform, so 5800X3D is DOA for consumers not already owning a AM4 M/B.
The same goes for $299 5700X vs 12600KF (5700X will be slower in both 720p gaming and multithreading apps like Cinenench). On the contrary 5600 at $199 is a good deal and competitive with 12400F if you take account the M/B cost.
Regarding 5500, probably is going to be competitive with 12100F in Cinenench but lose in 720p gaming (especially if it is Cezanne based - 5600X is nearly 16% faster vs 5600G and 5500 will be lower clocked and with disabled SMT while on the other hand 12100F is only -10% slower vs 12400F in 720p worst case scenario) so at -$40 vs 5600 doesn't look so good vs 12100F (-$70 vs 12400F)
4600G is interesting for those that want light IGP gaming (since logically it will have at least 4400G IGP specs 1.9GHz 7CUs)
4500 is uninteresting, it will be like a 10400F (127€ at Mindfactory) , maybe a little bit better at multithreading but slower in gaming and especially uninteresting the quad core 4400 since 10105F (79€ at Mindfactory) will have same multithreading but will be faster in gaming. In the previous leak there was also a quad core/thread athlon gold 4100GE which also is interesting for the target audience if the price is right (certainly not at $69)

i'm using 4650G (which is technically 4600g) for over 1 year, sometimes in amazon you can find interesting stuff, I'm confused, why they want to release 4xxx series CPU now?

Be real, mentioning 720p gaming in the same breath as a 5700X and 12700K is oblivious to reality in fact you go 720p a lot, not much take-up in the real world where 1080p wins 1440p comes second!.


It's a re alignment is all, they are more competitive , that's all.

I think this 5800X3d Cache is interesting ,I just don't game more than I work so I am still tempted by a 5900X

That should be the 5600G with its iGPU disabled/faulty. And imho, the 5700X will be the best in the series if it is sold for less than $300 due to its 65W/88W power draw that will allow anyone to get its max performance (90% of 5800X in multithreading and >95% in gaming) in any case/cooling. 5600 will be the best selling and 5800X3D will battle for the top gaming CPU vs Intel ones.
