Several New AMD Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 4000 Processor Models from Spring'22 Update Go on Sale

AMD's Spring 2022 desktop processor product-stack went live (for the most part). AMD had announced as many as seven new Socket AM4 processor models on March 15. Six of these go on sale today, while the Ryzen 7 5800X3D hits the shelves on April 20. Among the models going on sale today are the Ryzen 7 5700X, an 8-core/16-thread part positioned a notch below the 5800X, and priced at $299; the Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X), a 6-core/12-thread part that's slightly a down-clocked 5600X priced at $199; the Ryzen 5 5500, which is essentially a 5600G "Cezanne" 6-core/12-thread APU with its iGPU disabled and clocked lower; at $159; and a trio of cost-effective Ryzen 4000 series parts based on the Renoir silicon and "Zen 2" architecture, priced under the $150-mark. As of this writing, we see most of these SKUs on sale with US retailer Newegg.

The 5700X isn't going to be a big seller here, as it costs exactly the same as the 5800X costs now...

@btarunr Surprisingly a few went on sale in India two days ago. Online retailers had them in stock and for sale on the 2nd April.

5700X will end up being sold for less then and sel more since it will work on all boards with its lower power draw. My 5c.

Weird, embargo on 5500/5600/5700x should have just been lifted, did TPU got any sample this time?

Was thinking the same.

Tom's review is out but I never bother because of their awful web layout and silly charts along with the fact they still testing Ryzen Zen 3 CPUs in 8GBX2 SR config. :rolleyes:

I wonder how many less informed buyers will buy a 5500 because they miss the advantage of having a 5600 or faster. It really should be two separate lists, although I doubt it would help.

All the reviewers are using premium cards to make the CPU the bottleneck in games, but this kind of artificial/outdated bottleneck will only show itself with slow or old cards..

Add a 6500XT and you're stuck at PCIe 3.0 x4, which is just laughable.
Yes, I know that I'm repeating myself.

I always check Tom's review.
I always check the worst case scenario for AMD's CPUs and what better representation of that scenario than Intel's review?

Did I wrote Intel? My bad. I meant Tom obviously. :love:

Nope, and on holiday anyway.

amd is allocating extremely few samples these days, and they consider tpu a german media, for no reason other than i am located in Germany. Obviously they’ll give samples to German speaking media first, which makes sense of course. Just a suboptimal situation and nobody at amd cares to speak up to their superiors, because why go through trouble, just relax and do the minimum work possible

I guess that depends on what hardware people have. It's going to take a while before it drops in price too.
Performance seems to be pretty weak all things considering, although it could be that the reviewer did something wrong based on the review I was looking at.

Same old story, being online doesn't exist apparently, you have to be tied to a specific country/region. This kind of stuff is so 1990's...

450 is abit steep for the 5800X3D, but hopefully it will sell for a bit less in the future...

What's wrong with the 5500? ok less caches, though £30 cheaper than the 5600 non x and still Zen 3 cores, it costs the same as my 4 year old Ryzen 1500x did when I bought it, so is an ideal upgrade for cheapskate, 1st and 2nd gen users

I am amazed Newegg didnt jack up pricing for these.

Also amazed that 5900X is $449 there...

Like my last line suggests, it has an older PCIe 3.0 interface compared to Ryzen 5600 and up.

It will work just great with graphics cards that have 16 PCIe lanes, just like the reviews shows.

But if you buy a card with a crippled interface (x4) you get the worst from both products.

lol why did you remove the link to Tom's hardware? Also, they've added Hothardware now.

I think the oddity here though is the 6500 XT with its 4 PCIE lanes which is not a common occurrence for a GPU and not the 5500 with Gen PCIE 3, as I'm pretty sure most PCIE GPU's are all x16 irrespective of their PCIE gen, so the 6500 XT would perform just as bad with any PCIE 3 or lower platform and not just that of the Ryzen 5500, besides, I see the 5500 more as a drop in upgrade to B350/B450 owners which don't have PCIE 4 anyway but can still run their GPU at x16 unless of course they have bought a 6500 XT

Speaking of obvious, we all saw the flags next to the links, and you didn't, that's why I replied. :D

Well then you didn't read my link. >13 % slower just for saving $30.

The problem is that you get this issue when you combine two of the latest 2022 AMD products. If one of them were three years old or so I wouldn't have said anything.

If you combine Ryzen 5500 with the 6600 XT, it will work fine.
If you combine Ryzen 5600 with the 6500 XT, it will work fine.

But, If you combine Ryzen 5500 with the 6500 XT, you get a less than optimal combination.

With a gimped GPU that is is a one off, the issue is the 6500 XT not the 5500, I think you didn't read what I wrote not the other way around, 6500 XT will perform worse in 95% of all systems, this is a one off as ALL other GPU's have 16 lanes apart from this little monstrousity, and Ryzen 5600x can run fine on many PCIE 3 B450/x470 motherboards so you are wrong on that count also

I was talking about an all new system, and that's my whole point.

But yeah, I didn't pay attention to this -->



Which I by now guess was your way of saying less than three. :roll:

Well, for people on B450 who wants a fairly cheap upgrade this is not really an issue, our motherboards limit us to PCIe Gen 3 in the first place. Personally I'm inclined to agree with Tom's Hardware conclusions about these parts being mostly attractive for people on older Ryzen systems who want to upgrade.
