AMD announced its Ryzen 5000 series family earlier last month and it did take them quite a while but AMD Malaysia has finally confirmed the local pricing for these new Ryzen processors. If you’re looking forward to getting an upgrade with the new Ryzen 5000 series processors, it’s best to get yourself a new AMD 500 series chipset motherboards for it even though board partners have released a new BIOS update for the AMD 400 series chipset motherboards to support the new CPUs.
The options are quite limited as of now for those of you who are looking for an upgrade with a tight budget but you’ll have to bear with it for now until AMD announce more of its Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors for the mid-range and entry-level market, which will probably be happening in 2021.

All the Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors will be fully compatible with the latest AMD 500 series chipset motherboards (incl. X570, B550, and A520), which is recommended if you want to utilize all the new features that are made available on the Ryzen 5000 CPUs. As we’ve mentioned earlier, some of the board partners did announce that they will be releasing the BIOS update for their AMD 400 series chipset motherboards to support the Ryzen 5000 CPUs but the features will be limited to what’s available on the 400 series chipset.
With that being said, you can expect to see all the announced Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors, notably the Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and Ryzen 5 5600X, from your local retailer from November 6 onwards after the global release on 10 PM November 5, 2020.
