Ryzen 5 is Making Shockwaves with the PC Enthusiast Around the World
AMD has released its new Ryzen 5 processor. Though most PC enthusiasts are still recovering from all the news about Ryzen 7, it is good to know that the new Ryzen 5 is competitively giving Intel’s i5 series a run for its money.
Here is everything you need to know about AMD’s Ryzen 5 series if you’re a PC gaming beginner and are planning to build your own PC.
A Competitive Choice For Gamers
AMD’s new processor is certainly a welcome addition to the choices that gamers can make when they decide to build their own PC. Performance and power is everything when it comes to gaming. Framerates and the overall aesthetic of a game will only be as good as the hardware used to power up a person’s gaming rig. A rig’s performance is deathly important when practicing or hosting big e-sports tournaments like Play Park All-Stars 2017.
The Ryzen 5 series is AMD’s contender to Intel’s Core i5 processors. Ryzen comes in four different models: the 1600x, 1600, 1500X, and 1400. These processors feature AMD’s “Zen” architecture which comes in 6-core, 12 threads and 4-core, and 8-thread selections.
When asked about the Ryzen 5’s performance against its competitor, AMD stated that the Ryzen 5 1600x trumps the Intel Core i5 7600k by almost 70% when it comes to CPU performance – that extra processing power will come in handy for performance when it comes to gaming and creative design applications.
