Here are the local prices for AMD Ryzen 5 chips

AMD just announced the lower-cost Ryzen 5 a few days ago, and we got word of the official pricing that these chips will be having as they land in the country next month.

The Ryzen 5 series aims to challenge Intel’s Core i5 processors and comes in four different models. The Ryzen 5 series features AMD’s “Zen” architecture in 6-core, 12-thread as well as 4-core, and 8-thread options. According to AMD, the Ryzen 5 1600X beats the Intel Core i5 7600K by 69% in CPU performance testing using Cinebench R15 nT.

Here are the suggested retail prices for the Ryzen 5 series:

The Global launch for the AMD Ryzen 5 series is on April 11, but we’re expecting retailers to get their own inventories and post their SRPs nearing the week of release. Stay tuned for more updates.

    That’s not competitive at all! the price is jacked up!

      Considering that the r5-1600 is priced at i5 range, while having 6 physical cores and 12 threads, I doubt that it is overpriced at all. However, prices are more expensive than US prices, as usual, since listed US prices is before their sales tax.

      lolololol can’t afford bois in da haws :)))

      competitive means you compete either as good as or better than others of a comparable nature.

      how is it not competitive when it can go toe to toe with i5 in gaming but with additional 1k or less than 1k, it can also be a decent workstation for rendering and multithreaded stuff.

      because it’s a 6core/12thread vs 4core/4thread with similar IPC/single threaded performance.

      i5-7500 (4 cores / 4 threads 3.8ghz locked 6M cache) cost the same as the R5-1500X (4 cores / 8 threads 3.7 ghz but unlocked/overclockable 8M cache) with software optimizations coming along the way, 1500X is definitely a smarter choice than the i5

    I have questions

    1. Can the Latest Pentium and i3 process basic video editing?

    2. Will AMD have a competitor for the Pentium, cause I’m in that market where I will really just use it for basic stuff and so long as it can game 1080p 60 FPS, I’m happy

    • N says:

      1. sure why not? speed lang naman ang difference. it will be significantly slow in rendering pero it can.
      2. for pentium wala. G4560 will still be the king of lowend even killing the i3 lineup. R3 will compete with the already dead i3 line with 4c4t vs i3’s 2c4t.

    The prices are not competitive in the current state of PC software. The extra cores/threads are nice, but most software are still optimized for 1-2 cores, and in those areas Intel’s IPC destroys Ryzen. I surely hope that more software use more cores/threads in the future, but we’ve been hearing the same thing when AMD’s inflated core counts in their FX series. I have seen the benchmarks, and in gaming, the i5 7500 and 7600k are keeping pace with the 1600x, and it’s cheaper here in the PH.

    As an AMD fan (my first build was with an AthlonXP Barton Edition more than ten years ago), I am disappointed with the pricing.

    if you want a future proof pc go for RYZEN after some bios updates RYZEN cpu’s will be a beast no need to argue, argue and i shall bless you as a intel smartass fanboy
