Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 processors go on sale as part of gaming PCs
The Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 processors, introduced almost four months ago, have finally begun to appear as part of ready-made computer assemblies. Both new products are available as an option for the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Editon R10 gaming computer. Recall that these chips will be distributed exclusively through OEM channels. However, no one excludes the possibility of the appearance of processors in retail, as happened with the Ryzen 4000G hybrid models.
The aforementioned 12-core and 8-core models are distinguished from conventional models with the “X” prefix by the calculated heat dissipation reduced to 65 W and, as a consequence, lower values of the base and turbo frequencies. At the same time, they should also cost less than their older counterparts.
According to the company’s official website, choosing the Ryzen 7 5800 model will cost $ 150 less than the option with the Ryzen 7 5800X. In turn, equipping the gaming system with a Ryzen 7 5900 chip instead of the Ryzen 7 5900X will be at least $ 300 cheaper.
The Ryzen 7 5800 is 3.4 GHz, which is 400 MHz below the Ryzen 7 5800X. The automatic overclocking mode rises to 4.6 GHz (100 MHz lower than the older model). The 12-core model, in turn, has a base frequency of 3.0 GHz, which is as much as 700 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 5900X version. The turbo frequency of the junior processor is 100 MHz lower than the senior one and amounts to 4.7 GHz.
The AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop processor series currently consists of six models. According to rumors, the company may also introduce a lower model, Ryzen 5 5600. And in the coming weeks, three Ryzen 5000G series hybrid desktop chips with integrated graphics are expected to be announced.
