AMD amazes everyone and challenges its CPU competitors. With these prices the new processors can dominate the market.

Assault on power. AMD’s 2023 ends with a bang. Advanced Micro Devices (whose acronym is AMD) has decided to challenge Intel and, more generally, CPU manufacturers with the clear intention of dominating the market.

New processors and aggressive prices for AMD: the details

This can be understood from the prices of the new processors. The Californian multinational semiconductor producer seems to be taking world leadership (for many still in the hands of Intel) in the production of CPUs for the consumer market, workstations and servers.

Second place in the production of microprocessors with x86 architecture, after Intel, with a share of 27.7% in terms of sales, is no longer enough for it. And if for GPUs, AMD still has to switch to keep up with Intel and, above all, NVIDIA, on CPUs it wants to checkmate Intel.

AMD is playing the wildcard on CPUs: from 130 dollars to 340. The game for leadership with Intel is played here

Already in the world of gaming the AMD-Intel duality has reached increasingly higher levels. Either because they remain the best performing option for PC gaming, or because of their competitiveness, it is never easy to choose between the two technology giants. The American producer, however, is playing a nice wild card.

Thanks to the preview of Momomo_US, the preliminary prices of future AMD desktop CPUs want to conquer the mid-range processor market, thanks to the upcoming release of the Ryzen 8000G AM5, Ryzen 5000X3D and Ryzen 5000 AM4.

Of course, it is not certain that these will be the final prices, they are in fact variable and therefore subject to change, but the perspective suggests a common fact: all the Ryzen 8000 and Ryzen 5000 chips fall within a price range that does not exceed 350 dollars .

AMD’s Ryzen 8000G APU specs show regular or Pro variants with identical specs. Examples? The Ryzen 7 8700G will feature 8 cores, 16 threads, a base frequency of 4.2 GHz and a peak frequency of 5.1 GHz, while the Ryzen 5 8600G will have 6 cores, 12 threads, base frequencies of 4.35 GHz and peak of 5.0 GHz.

But both will be based on the Phoenix 1, supporting the OC. These are the preliminary prices that AMD intends to place on the market. 340 dollars for the Ryzen 7 8700G, which becomes 240 for the Ryzen 5 8600G. And again: Ryzen 5 8500G at 190 dollars, Ryzen 7 5700X3D at 260 dollars, Ryzen 7 5700 at 180 dollars, Ryzen 5 5600GT at 150 dollars, up to the Ryzen 5 5500GT which should cost around 130 dollars.
