AMD is reportedly prepping to launch at least three new desktop processors sometime this month. This is in addition to the Ryzen 7 58ooX3D that was already said to go on sale at the end of March, which means AMD should have a hectic month if the rumor mills are correct about the company's plans. Rumors earlier this month also suggested that the 5800X3D will be priced around the $350 mark in the U.S., although it is yet to be verified by other sources.
AMD's latest launches will compete with mainstream processors in Intel's Alder Lake lineup, which the Core i9-12900K leads. It is an upgrade over last year's Core i9-11900K and offers up to 16 cores and 24 threads. The Alder Lake line also includes the Core i5-12600K, which has been earning plaudits as one of the best gaming CPUs money can buy.

The latest report about AMD's upcoming chips is believed to have been first posted on the Chinese-languageChiphell forum before being picked up by well-known tipster HXL onTwitter. According to the post, the three upcoming chips will include the Ryzen 7 5700X, Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500. The report has since been somewhat confirmed byWccfTech, which claims it has also heard similar rumors from its sources. According to the blog, the Ryzen 7 5700X will likely be an octa-core, 16-threaded processor with a 65W TDP. In addition, it will reportedly be priced at $279-$299 in the U.S., which would place it squarely in the Core i5-12600K ballpark.

AMD is also reportedly set to unveil the Ryzen 5 5600 and Ryzen 5 5500 this month. Both are said to be Hexa-core processors with 65W TDP. They will reportedly be positioned against Intel's Core i5-12400 and Core i3-12100, respectively, and will be priced similarly. All three chips will still be part of the Zen 3 lineup, as Zen 4 is still some way off. Unfortunately, there's not much more information about the upcoming chips, including their detailed specifications. However, if AMD is launching these chips this month, expect to get more details in the coming days.
As mentioned earlier, the three new processors will be in addition to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

It will have a 3.4GHz base clock, a 4.5GHz boost clock, and a 105W TDP. In addition, theAMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will carry 32 MB of L3 cache on-die alongside 64MB of 3D V-cache off-die.
