AMD launched their higher-end/enthusiast Ryzen 7 range in the last 36 hours, with the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X - but it's the mainstream and mid-range CPUs that will be shifting the ground beneath Intel's feet - with the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 range of chips.

Now we're hearing that AMD will be launching their Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 range of CPUs in Q2 2017 - which means sometime between April and June, perfect for a huge unveil during Computex in late-May, early-June. Ryzen 5 will aim at the Core i5 processors from Intel, with 6C/12T - providing more CPU threads than the higher-end Core i7-7700K and its 4C/8T.

 

The Ryzen 5 1600X is meant to cost $259, while the Ryzen 5 1500 will cost $229. Ryzen 3 will arrive as 4-core CPUs, and they should be CHEAP AS CHIPS, offering some great performance and more CPU threads for the CPU intensive games/applications out there.
