AMD's Ryzen 5 series of CPUs will release on April 11th

 
When Ryzen launched last month one of the biggest questions that we have heard from consumers was "when will 6-core and 4-core models be released", well this morning we can finally reveal the answer to this question. 
 
Today AMD has confirmed that their Ryzen 5 series CPUs will be releasing on April 11th, coming with both 4-core, 8-thread models and 6-core/12-thread models. These CPUs will arrive with prices that are between $169 and $249, which makes the most expensive Ryzen 5 CPU $80 less expensive than the cheapest Ryzen 7 model.

Like all other AMD Ryzen CPUs, these new Ryzen 5 models will all be overclockable, allowing AMD users to get some extreme levels of value for money when compared to Intel's i5 series of CPUs.

Intel's main competitor in this price point is the i5 7600K, which is priced at around £230 at serval UK retailers, making Intel's quad core a price competitor with AMD's 6-core, 12-thread CPU models. 

This gives AMD a huge opportunity to gain some market share from Intel, offering much higher core/thread counts than Intel's price competitors, giving AMD a huge advantage in multi-threaded workloads.

The R5 1600 seems like a winner to me. $219 for a 6 core CPU?! Amazing value. Since it is 65watt TDP it should read the temps right, which means better OC's? Hopefully. If these can hit 4.3ghz at least that would be solid.Quote

I'm liking the prices $140 between the 1600X and 1700X which I was originally going to get, mainly for stronger single core performance over the 1700, but I'm hoping the 1600X can maybe even clock a little better than the 1800X given the reduced heat.Quote

watched the video, and they show the 1600x gaming alongside the 7600k and getting slightly better fps, though the big question is what was the 7600k running at and what ramQuote

ATM it seems the same as US prices only in pounds so if it's $249 then it'll be around 249 poundQuote
