To date, AMD has been selling four versions of its Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the latest ‘Zen 3’ microarchitecture, with two new models coming soon. There is still one more strategy in the AMD brain, but it is no longer just in the head. Reports indicate that AMD is planning two desktop CPUs with 12 and 8 cores and lower power consumption, presumably designed for prefab PCs, as the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800.
As per the Twitter users Patrick Schur and momomo_us, who are famous for their leaks 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X, the clock speeds of these two processor models are still unexplored, but “Thermal Design Power” (TDP) is decreased from 105 watts to 65 watts comparison to the prior Ryzen 9. The clock frequencies should also be a bit lower.
Specifications Of Ryzen 7 5800 By AMD:
- OPN: 100-000000064
- TDP: 65 W
- Cores: 8/16
- L2: 4 MB
- L3: 32 MB
Specifications Of Ryzen 9 5900 By AMD:
- OPN: 100-000000062
- TDP: 65 W
- Cores: 12/24
- L2: 6 MiB
- L3: 64 MiB
It is still not clear if and then when the latest 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X will be available on the first complete systems, or whether they will be available as so-called tray models individually.
There have already been reports in October about yet another Ryzen 5000 CPU model without an ‘X’ added to its name. Consequently, the Ryzen 5 5600 with six cores should appear early next year and be a lot more affordable than the previous Ryzen 5 5600X. The Ryzen 5 5600 also should be clocked a bit lower than the current 5600X, close to the Ryzen 5 3600 and 3600X from the ‘Zen 2’ series.
Patrick Schur further disclosed that AMD is preparing its Cezanne-based APUs, which is the G series, and may have a 65W TDP. With an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G with 8 cores and 16 threads, the proc family will release, while the Ryzen 5 5600G would do so with a processing configuration of 6 cores and 12 threads. Other data, such as frequencies, integrated graphics, or TDP, have not been published at this time.
AMD most probably will introduce these desktop APUs at CES 2021. Along with this, Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors should also be introduced, and maybe the AMD Radeon RX 6700 too.
