Intel CPU Destruction: AMD Ryzen 5 Outperforms Core i3, Core i5 In All Aspects [VIDEO]
AMD Ryzen 5 is already out in the store shelves and up for grab for system builders OEMs as well as other consumers of bare CPUs. For this reason, Intel is reportedly threaten for Core i3 and Core i5 sales since AMD releases Ryzen 5 as cheaper than its Intel counterparts.
The launching of AMD Ryzen 5 reportedly went smoothly because all the information is already released ahead of the launching. Unlike its high-end sibling, the Ryzen 7 which brought a lot of surprises such as more than 50 percent instruction per clock or IPC due to Zen architecture and many other game related enhancements.
Although Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 are almost the same in many ways, differences in cores, threads and overclockability are apparent. Since Ryzen 5 also uses the Zen architecture, the CPU comes into variants: the 1600X a 6-core, 12-thread processor with 3.2GHz base clock ($224) and 4 core, 8-thread 1400 ($169), PC Gamer reported.
AMD Ryzen 5 has the ability to reach an Extreme Frequency Range or XFR which has 100 to 200 MHz. This potential level of boost can be achieved through a liquid cooling or a Wraith Spire cooling system introduced by AMD for enhanced air cooling with programmable cool lighting effects.
Furthermore, AMD has also introduces another cooling system called Wraith Stealth, a cheaper cooler for the lower-end AMD Ryzen 5 1400 CPU. However, between the two cooling system, Spire is quieter than Stealth but it has the tendency to create so much noise when doing big tasks in AMD Ryzen 7, Forbes reported.
To sum it all, AMD Ryzen 5 has reportedly outscored its Intel counterparts Core i3 and Core i5 because of its excellence performance in multi-threaded workloads. Examples of highly-threaded applications are physical rendering, bulk image converters, gaming while streaming, compilation of applications, common file compression, running several applications simultaneously, ray tracers, computational fluid dynamics and many others.
