AMD Launches Ryzen 5 3500 for OEMs, Indian DIY Market

spot_img

AMD today officially confirmed the existence of the Ryzen 5 3500, a six-core Zen 2 part (essentially a 3600 lacking SMT) with a listing of the product on the company website. There’s however a caveat. The Ryzen 5 3500 is only available through OEMs in pre-built PCs and possibly gaming laptops. It is available as a DIY component separately in Asia-Pacific though, including India.

We’ve already listed several gaming-builds in the 50-60K range that leverage the 3500, and we can confirm that the CPU squishes the more expensive Core i5-9400F.

We are offering the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 processor to OEM partners and channels in certain regions. This processor will enable our partners to take full advantage of AMD’s most advanced CPU platform, offering powerful gaming and high-speed productivity performance, with a support of industry leading PCIe 4.0, AMD’s Precision Boost Overdrive and Ryzen Master Utility.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.

  1. Awesome!!! For the first time I’ve felt monetarily advantageous as an Indian PC customer.
    Although it’s not too much of an advantage it’s still an advantage.
    .
    (just to avoid any upcoming misunderstanding. Many things are invented by Indians including USB and PCI and I do feel advantageous for that. But in this particular case I feel an advantage that you only get in USA and China. Advantage like getting parts cheaper than anywhere else or parts launched earliest in a region, or guaranteed access to tech whenever it’s launched)
