The novelty will be released next year
At the moment, the range of Ryzen 5000 processors is limited to four models, the youngest of which – Ryzen 5 5600X – costs $ 300. Of course, this is almost three times less than what they ask for the top-end Ryzen 9 5950X, but even $ 300 for a processor is either expensive or simply unnecessary for many.
This will likely be the most popular processor in the Ryzen 5000 lineup. The Ryzen 5 5600 will cost significantly less than the Ryzen 5 5600X.
Naturally, more affordable CPUs will appear later. It is not yet known when to expect them, but the first rumors about Ryzen 5 5600 appeared on the Web. According to the source, it will be released next year and will cost $ 220.
Given that it will clearly retain the same 6 cores with SMT support, this price difference over the Ryzen 5 5600X is likely to make the younger six-core the most popular in the lineup again.
Also, based on the previous generation, we can assume that the Ryzen 5 5600 will operate at frequencies around 3.5-4.4 GHz.
