Twitter leaker MEGAsizeGPU is being cited as a trusted source by VideoCardz which suggests that AMD may be looking to fill its gaping entry-level product stack to accompany the anticipated 3D V-cache equipped Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
Not much details is being shared but the core configuration and SKU naming suggests that AMD may be looking to go up against the Intel Core i5-12400 and 12600 as well as the Core i3 12100 by potentially releasing the Ryzen 5 5500, Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X), a Ryzen 7 5700X and the anticipated Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
The Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X) is looking to go head-to-head with the i5-12400 which may suggest a $200 price target while the non-SMT Ryzen 5 5500 could go up against the cheaper 12th Core i3 SKUs. The Ryzen 7 5700X is currently unreleased but could fill the gap between the 5600X and 5800X to completely wrap up that price point while the new Ryzen 7 58003XD fills the enthusiast market is expected to compete heavily with the 12900K in pure gaming usage.
AMD will release 4 new CPUs this month:
5500 has the same price as 12100, 5600 will be cheaper than 12400, and 5700X will be cheaper than 12600KF.
