AMD Readies Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 Processors for OEMs

With the launch of the Ryzen 5000 series of processors, AMD has set a goal to put its Zen 3 cores everywhere. Starting from desktop, mobile, and soon server space, AMD is delivering its best products. However, AMD is also preparing to satisfy another segment. The OEMs are in need of processors that are specifically designed for their purposes and their clients, that don't require as many features as the desktop segment does. Usually, that means some overclocking capability is cut off. Today, thanks to the two hardware leakers Patrick Schur and Momomo_US we get to see the first sightings of AMD's upcoming Zen 3 offerings for OEMs.

The first in the lineup is the Ryzen 9 5900 processor. It features 12 cores with 24 threads, running at unknown frequencies for now. All we know is that the CPU is a bit lower-clocked than its 105 W "X" Ryzen 9 5900X variant. Unlike the "X" variant, this CPU is supposed to bring TDP down to 65 Watts. Another differentiator is the cache configuration. The Ryzen 9 5900 features 64 MB of L3 cache and 2 MB of L2 cache. The "X" version for desktops features 64 MB of L3, however, there is 6 MB of L2 cache present there. Next up comes the smaller eight-core variant - Ryzen 7 5800. Featuring 8 cores and 16 threads running at an also unknown frequency. The chip features a TDP of 65 Watts and cache configuration with 32 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2, with the only difference from the Ryzen 7 5800X being the lower frequency.

Ffs AMD just announce the 5600 & 5700X already.

I would guess that they could make a cheaper 8 core sku with two modules with 4 cores disabled on each. (4+4 instead of 8+0). It would have similar latency penalty as Ryzen 2 when jumping the IF, but could make use of much failed silicon. People would buy it if the price and availability were right. They could do the same for a cheaper 6 core model.

I protest! I want free access to purchase of all CPU models like separate components from end customers like me. Without extra paying for stiker with name of OEM brand.

Well that's just awesome!

Thats funny; I am still waiting for my 5900X since 5 minutes after launchtime on day-one. It would suit them if they delievered their 2nd batch of CPUs to vendors (live in Denmark), so supplychain should be good...

I know what you are going through bro. In Norway some of these are scheduled for April.
On a side note, since what I'm about to share is about graphics. I've literally fell from my chair after I saw this. I know it is probably a mistake but still :p

I kinda hope they dont. But... If they do it will be after the binning is done.

Clearly a mistake, when you finally get them in 2028 the price will be quadruple that. ;)

TumbleGeorgeMaybe info for L2 cache size is wrong.
I doubt it falls in line with the 512KB per core structure of Zen 3. I don't not think changed around the L2/L3 cache ratio relationship structure for 2 OEM chip variants. As for the 65w versus 105w AMD tends to only adhere to those two power envelops along with 35w for AM4 chips. The 12c part also can do better precision boot power gating since it's got a higher core count that allows it to manipulate the heat across the chip more finely with the higher core count to die size granularity. I'm thinking the 12c part might have a slightly lower base clock, but a marginally higher precision boost for a min max on heat and power draw in relation to performance for the wattage target. If it's for OEM's it probably got a higher focus on power efficiency in mind too where heat and cost of ownership are higher considerations.

Don't announce them or release them?

I'm in a situation that I just want any :)

That means connection or connectivity :) and you probably got it from the HDMI 2.1 tilkoblinger (connection) :P

AMD Also Readies Ryzen 7 5700G & Ryzen 5 5600G 'Cezanne' Desktop APUs For AM4 Platform?

This part of the wccftech article didn't get a mention. Too speculative?
