Actual architecture: Rembrandt (Zen 3+)
Technology: 6 nm
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 5000 series supports up to 128 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM in the desktop. Version 4.0 of the PCI Express interface is supported, which is sufficient to connect modern graphics cards at maximum speed. The processors can address the working memory in a maximum of two channels, which is identical to the competitor's Intel Core i5 processors.

The AMD Ryzen 5 processors have a maximum TDP of only 65 watts and are therefore quite economical. 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 4.6 GHz, which is identical to that of the AMD Ryzen 7 processors and is only slightly below the 4.9 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).
