AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, Ryzen 7 5700G & 5800, Ryzen 9 5900 Allegedly Coming Soon - Specifications Leaked


AMD announced their Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs on October 8th, 2020 while the processors hit the shelves on November 5th, 2020 for the consumers to purchase them. 4 Processors were announced on the 8th of October in the form of Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X with 6 cores / 12 threads, 8 cores / 16 threads, 12 cores / 24 threads and 16 cores / 32 threads respectively. Since their release on November 5th, there has been a significant shortage of these CPUs and potential customers are still waiting while they hope for the stocks to show up and they can grab one in the couple minutes that they last in the online stores. Amidst this saga there are reports popping up that AMD is working on 2 Ryzen 5000 APUs and 2 Ryzen 5000 non-X CPUs though the later ones are reportedly OEM only models. So lets get into it.
This article is based on leaks from @patrickschur_ and @momomo_us about the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G desktop APUs and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800 and Ryzen 9 5900 both non-X Desktop CPUs. On December 19th, Patrick Schur tweeted reporting the existence of 2 Ryzen 5000 APUs under the code-name Cezanne (CZN) - Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G APUs are based on the latest Zen 3 architecture form AMD. Yes, previously AMD used to name their previous gen APUs with the naming scheme of the next gen CPUs for example the Ryzen 5 3400G APU was based on the Zen+ architecture where as the Ryzen 3000 CPU family itself was based on the Zen 2 architecture. AMD, with the announcement of the Ryzen 5000 CPUs, skipped the Ryzen 4000 naming scheme which was already given to the Zen 2 based Ryzen 4000 Desktop APUs. Yeah, very confusing I know. The Ryzen 5000 naming scheme for the Zen 3 based CPUs and APUs simplify in knowing which architecture the CPU or APU is based on unless AMD comes in with more (laptop) APUs with the Ryzen 5000 naming scheme but based on the Zen 2 architecture as was alleged by a few leakers in the last couple months.
As to what GPUs will be integrated in to these APUs - previous reports suggest it is still Vega 7 iGPUs and we won't be seeing any RDNA based integrated GPUs in AMD APUs may be until next year with APUs code-named Van Gogh being the first family of APUs with RDNA2 iGPUs.

There is no information yet regarding if these APUs will be OEM only or will be launching for both OEM and DIY markets simultaneously or one after another just as AMD promised for the AMD Ryzen 4000G APUs which initially launched as OEM only parts while AMD promised to bring them to the DIY space later down the line. For those of you wondering about the Ryzen 3 Desktop APUs there is no word about them yet, but it is more likely than not that AMD will launch them too.

On October 20th, Patrick Schur went on to post 2 SKUs from AMD whose names were not finalized yet but had the following OPN Numbers: 100-000000064 and 100-000000062. Later on December 19 @momomo_us confirmed that the SKUs were AMD Ryzen 7 5800 and AMD Ryzen 9 5900 respectively. Initial reports suggest that these CPUs are OEM only parts.

Coming to the specifications - both the AMD Ryzen 7 5800 (non-X) and the AMD Ryzen 9 5900 (non-X) are Vermeer CPUs based on the Zen 3 architecture with 6 cores / 12 threads and 12 cores / 24 threads respectively which is the same core layout as the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X. The Ryzen 7 5800 has 4MB L2 cache and 32MB L3 cache which is again same as the Ryzen 7 5800X counter part and the Ryzen 9 5900 follows the same cache distribution as the Ryzen 9 5900X counter part with 6MB L2 cache and 64MB L3 cache.

Where these non-X CPUs differ from there X-counterparts is the TDP with both the non-X CPUs having a 65W TDP where as the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X are both 105W CPUs. There is no information regarding the base clocks and boost clocks of the Ryzen 7 5800 and Ryzen 9 5900 but given the lower TDPs one can be safe to assume that the non-X CPUs will be clocked slightly lower than their respective X-counterparts.
Are you excited for the Ryzen 5000 Desktop APUs or are you disappointed that the initial reports suggest that the Ryzen 7 5800 (non-X) and Ryzen 9 5900 (non-X) CPUs are OEM only parts? Do let us know down in the comments section below.
