Dell Lists an AMD "Ryzen 7 5800" (non-X) Option

AMD appears to be taking baby steps toward expanding its Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" desktop processor lineup. Dell Canada has started listing a model of the processor series not yet available in the DIY retail channel, the Ryzen 7 5800 (non-X). This isn't a typo, as the option is listed next to the 5800X. The Ryzen 7 5800 is described as being an 8-core part, much like the 5800X, but has a slightly lower max boost frequency of 4.60 GHz, as opposed to 4.70 GHz of the 5800X. It could have a lower nominal (base) frequency compared to the 5800X, and possibly even a lower TDP. The last time AMD released an OEM-exclusive non-X SKU was the Ryzen 9 3900 12-core processor.

AMD's current retail-channel (PIB) lineup of Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors starts at $299 for the 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X, with the company still selling Ryzen 3000-series SKUs such as the 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X under this price. We expect the company to flesh out the 5000-series with SKUs such as the "Ryzen 5 5600 (non-X)," later this year, in response to Intel's 11th Gen Core i5 series based on the "Rocket Lake-S" silicon. Given the fate of the Ryzen 9 3900, we don't expect a broad retail launch of the Ryzen 7 5800.

We'll see these in the next round of office surplus.

Most likely a 65W part as the non-X parts have never been anything else. Last time around the 3700X matched 3600X boost clock at the same TDP.

So much for a cheaper retail 8-core. I guess AMD also agreed that a 65W 8-core is getting less and less viable in the face of the 6- and 12-core.

I hope retail stores have enough shelf space for the influx of so much stock

How did you get that? You do knwo there is a 12 core non X that is also OEM specific, and likely to be a non X 5600 as well, also OEM specific.

"Most likely a 65W part, as the non-X parts have never been anything else"

I made zero claims about core count there. Really not sure how something that straightforward could be interpreted as a statement regarding anything other than TDP.
