The AMD Ryzen 5 processors are fast enough to run most applications and games smoothly. In the mainstream area, AMD offers a total of four different series: AMD Ryzen 3, AMD Ryzen 5, AMD Ryzen 7 and AMD Ryzen 9. Like each of these series, the AMD Ryzen 5 processors also have some for the desktop area and some for notebooks. Most AMD Ryzen 5 processors have 6 CPU cores and can process 12 threads simultaneously. The desktop processors are in direct competition with the Intel Core i5 processors. These have a similar number of CPU cores and thus also computing power.

The development of the AMD Ryzen processors takes place solely at AMD, but the processors are manufactured by the Taiwanese contract manufacturer TSMC. The AMD Ryzen 5 7000 series supports up to 128 GB DDR5-5200 RAM in the desktop. Dedicated graphics cards or fast M.2 SSDs can be connected to the system at maximum speed via the PCIe 5.0 interface. The processors can address the main memory in a maximum of two channels (dual-channel mode), which is identical to the Intel Core i5 processors of the competitor.

The AMD Ryzen 5 processors have a maximum TDP of only 105 watts and are therefore quite economical. In the short term, the Ryzen 5 processors in the current socket AM5 can absorb a maximum of 142 watts. Some of the desktop processors can also be overclocked to achieve even more performance.

When the processors are overclocked, however, the energy consumption of the processors also increases significantly in some cases. These should therefore be equipped with a suitable CPU cooler. The standard turbo clock frequencies of the AMD Ryzen 5 processors are a maximum of 5.3 GHz, which is only slightly below the 5.7 GHz of the fastest AMD Ryzen 9 processors. The biggest limitation compared to the larger processors of the AMD Ryzen 7 and AMD Ryzen 9 series is the reduced number of CPU cores.

In the mobile area, the AMD Ryzen 5 processors are a bit slower than their Intel counterparts, but the AMD processors are a bit more economical and usually have a faster integrated graphics unit (iGPU).
