AMD's first round of Ryzen 5000 series processors are due to launch on November 5th, catering the high-end PC and gaming markets. At launch, AMD's will not be launching Ryzen 7 5700X or Ryzen 5 5600 models, which were expected to release as more value-oriented versions of the 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X respectively. 

According to a post from @harukaze5719, via Videocardz, AMD plans to launch its Ryzen 5 5600 processor in early 2021 for $220, representing an $80 price cut over their Ryzen 5 5600X model.

Right now, AMD's planning to deliver Ryzen 5000 series (Zen 3) support to their 400-series motherboards in January 2021, roughly coinciding with the rumoured launch of their Ryzen 5 5600. This move will allow existing AMD users to upgrade to what should be AMD's new value gaming king without changing their motherboard. 

It is also possible that AMD plans to release Ryzen 7 5700X processors within the same timeframe, offering gamers additional value within the 8-core section of the PC market. 

At launch, AMD's bringing to the market its highest-end Ryzen 5000 series models. At launch, AMD is aiming for high margins and performance leadership over Intel, which is why they are not bringing lower-end Ryzen 5000 series processors to market on day 1. AMD will probably launch lower-cost models at a later date to deliver consumers more value for money, after claiming performance leadership within the gaming and workstation markets.

According to AMD's data, their Ryzen 5 5600X delivers PC builders more value than Intel's competing 6-core offering, the i5-10600K. AMD's promising more gaming performance, better for money and more raw performance across a variety of workloads. 

It is likely that AMD's rumoured Ryzen 5 5600 would closely match the performance levels of Intel's i5-10600K, delivering insane vale within the £200 segment of the CPU market.
