Overclockers UK says that AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs will release in a "couple of weeks"

 
On the Overclockers UK Forums, a member of staff called Gibbo has stated that AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs will be releasing in the "next couple of weeks", suggesting that these new CPUs will be releasing in early April. 
 
AMD has already stated that their Ryzen 5 CPUs will be releasing in Q2 2017, which means that these new CPUs will be releasing between April and June. Only one of those months fits into the "next couple of weeks" timeframe that Gibbo has suggested, placing the Ryzen 5 launch somewhere in the first half of April. 
 

Below is a list of all confirmed AMD Ryzen SKUs and their known clock speeds and specifications;

At this time the TDPs and price points of these new Ryzen SKUs are unknown, though it is likely that AMD will be releasing more information on these new SKUs soon.

Sweet now we just gotta hope they clock hard Quote

Oooooo, think I'm gonna wait now. Was gonna get a 1700X but depending on the price these could be tempting. Looking for something in between an i7 and a 1800X really for not too much money. If this can provide a little bit better single threaded performance over the 1800X (would seem logical that this could push slightly higher clocks as it will produce theoretically, 25% less heat) then I'm all in and will save myself a bunch.

Decisions, decisions!Quote

Get a 1700. It works better than the other two and overclocks almost as well for far less.Quote

The clock speeds of the R5 range might be the 'make or break' in whether I go AMD or Intel. I really, really don't want to go Intel, but the 7700K absolutely trumps Ryzen in everything I use a CPU for. Even at 1440p an R7 1700 falls behind and may not be worth upgrading from a 4670K to.Quote
