AMD has announced its new Ryzen 4000 and Ryzen 5000 series processor based on the Zen 2 and Zen 3 architecture. In this article, we will go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of AMD Ryzen 4000 and 5000 series CPUs in Nepal.
AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs:
Starting with the Ryzen 5000, it includes three new CPUs—the Ryzen 7 5700X, the Ryzen 5 5600, and the Ryzen 5 5500. These, like the rest of the 5000 series, are based on the Zen 3 architecture.
The top-tier model on the list is the Ryzen 7 5700X. It includes 8 cores, 16 threads, 32MB L3 cache memory, and PCIe 4.0 support. It is very similar to the 5800X but has a lower base and turbo frequency of 3.8MHz and 4.6MHz. This processor is meant to compete with Intel’s i5-12600K.
The Ryzen 5 5600, on the other hand, is essentially a 6-core/12-thread 5600X CPU with reduced base and turbo clock speeds at 4.4/3.5GHz. It also supports the PCIe 4.0 interface and has a TDP of 65W.
The new Ryzen 5 5500 is the last in the 5000-series. This new SoC is not much different from the existing 5600G CPU. It is only a few hundred MHz slower than the current 5600G and features the same 16MP L3 cache, 65W TDP, and 6C/12T design. The biggest difference between the Ryzen 5 5000 and 5600G is that the former does not include integrated Vega 7 graphics.

AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs Price in Nepal and Availability
The new Ryzen 7 5700X is priced at USD 299, while the Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500 will retail for USD 199 and USD 159, respectively. Except for the former, both CPUs include a Wraith Stealth cooler in the box. We expect the price of the new Ryzen 5000 series to start around 20,000, if and when it launches in Nepal.
|AMD 5000 series CPUs||Price in the US (Official)||Price in Nepal (Expected)|
|Ryzen 5 5500||USD 159||NPR 20,000|
|Ryzen 5 5600||USD 199||NPR 25,000|
|Ryzen 7 5700X||USD 229||NPR 30,000|
AMD Ryzen 4000 CPUs:
Moving on, AMD has also unveiled three new Ryzen 4000 series processors that are based on older Zen 2 architecture. These are based on the Renoir APU lineup, but with a few modifications. All of the new 4000 series processors, like the 5000 series above, have a TDP of 65W.
At the top of the series is the Ryzen 5 4600G with 6 cores, 12 threads, and dedicated AMD RX Vega 7 graphics. It has 11MB of cache and a base and turbo clock speed of 3.7/4.2GHz.
Below the 4600G, AMD has introduced two new SKUs—the Ryzen 5 4500 and the Ryzen 3 4100. While both of these chips are also based on the Renoir lineup, AMD has not included integrated GPUs here.
The Ryzen 5 4500 has a 6C/12T, 3.6GHz base clock, and 4.1GHz turbo speed. The CPU has an L3 cache of 8MB. The Ryzen 3 4100, on the other hand, has just four cores and eight threads are rated at a 3.8GHz base and 4.0GHz turbo clock speed. Similarly, it has just 4MB of L3 cache. Based on the specifications, you can accept these CPUs to compete against Intel’s Core i3 series.
AMD Ryzen 4000 CPUs Specifications:
|CPU||Core/ Thread||Base Freq.||Turbo Freq.||L3 Cache||Architecture||GPU||PCIe||TDP|
|Ryzen 3 4100||4||8||3800||4000||4 MB||Zen 2||–||3.0||65 W|
|Ryzen 5 4500||6||12||3600||4100||8 MB||Zen 2||–||3.0||65 W|
|Ryzen 5 4600G||6||12||3700||4200||8 MB||Zen 2||Vega7||3.0||65 W|
AMD Ryzen 4000 CPUs Price in Nepal and Availability
These Ryzen 4000 series CPUs come paired with AMD’s Wraith Stealth cooler and will be available from April 4th. In terms of pricing, the base Ryzen 4100 costs USD 99 while the 4500 and 4600G retails for USD 129 and USD 154, respectively. We expect the price of new Ryzen 4000 processors to start at 15,000, if and when it launches in Nepal.
|AMD 4000 series CPUs||Price in the US (Official)||Price in Nepal (Expected)|
|Ryzen 3 4100||USD 99||NPR 10,000|
