AMD’s Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs will release in Q2 and 2H 2017, giving Ryzen an 8-core only launch on March second. At AMD’s press event in California, the company has also revealed their 6-core Ryzen 5 1600X, which features a 3.6GHz base clock and a 4GHz boost clock.   
 
These specifications give this CPU much higher clock speeds than initial rumours suggested, giving this CPU the same per-core CPU performance as their flagship 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X.

Looking at the slides above we can see that AMD is aiming their R5 series of CPUs at Intel’s i5 series of CPUs, likely coming with similar pricing. This will allow AMD to offer a lot more performance at that price point, provided that users use highly threaded applications. 

This staggered launch will give AMD more time to promote their upcoming 8-core Ryzen models and give the company a chance to give their lower-end models a bigger spotlight when they release later in the year. 

AMD’s Ryzen 5 series of 6-core CPUs will release in Q2 2017 (April-June) and their Ryzen 3 series of quad-core CPUs will release in  2H 2017 (the second half of 2017).
