AMD Launches Ryzen 9 5900 & Ryzen 7 5800 OEM Processors

AMD has quietly launched two new Zen 3 processors for the OEM market with the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800. The Ryzen 9 5900 is a 12 core 24 thread processor with a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a max boost clock of 4.7 GHz along with a TDP of 65 W. The clock speeds were lowered due to the 65 W TDP with a base clock is 700 MHz lower than the 5900X while the boost clock is only 100 MHz slower. The Ryzen 7 5800 is an 8 core 16 thread processor with a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 4.6 GHz along with a TDP of 65 W. The base clock is reduced by 400 MHz and the boost clock by 100 MHz compared to the 105 W TDP 5800X. The Ryzen 9 5900 is only ~5% slower than the Ryzen 9 5900X despite a 61.5% lower TDP and reduced clock speeds according to UserBenchmark results. These new processors are now shipping in systems from various integrators such as the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition.

Why this trash allowed in TPU? Both AMD and Intel subreddit banned this POS.

OEM only. Not good. They either don't have enough for the retail market or they are becoming Intel in pricing.

I'd be happy with either, pity it's so hard to find a GPU that you need alongside them.

these are the chips we need massive supplies of, to contrast intels 250W space heaters

Its a shame that retail won't get it. The non X versions should provide AMD with a cheaper alternative to compete with Intel, particularly their Ryzen 5 series. Currently AMD have no answer to Intel's cheap i5 non K version in the DIY space.

i wonder why they are not selling retail versions of 5900 and only selling the x versions.

I'm wondering, is AMD raising their margins on the back of DIY builders, by forcing us to pay the premium for -X CPUs, because no other SKUs are available. And OEMs that will never pay that much (and will just sell more Intel otherwise) get the SKUs with better price/performance?

If AMD not change this will lose me.
Despite the advantages in multi-threaded performance, I would choose Intel only to punish AMD, because they have changed their attitude towards ordinary consumers.

It's an easy $50+++ markup for DIY experts like us, with 5 months of delay since the X series launch.

X (expensive) for exclusive pricing and limited stock ! :mad:

I was really hoping to a get a 5900 non-x - being OEM only is really a crap move imo.

I think these being OEM only has more to do with Intel being much more competitive in that market vs the diy market currently it seems AMD could release a turd at retail and people would buy it.... Watching the 5600X outsell competing arguably better intel parts with an inflated nearly 400 usd price is baffling to me on both Newegg/Amazon US.

Any tests comparing those CPUs to the X models?

Maybe its their "art of the deal"? It is just "not enough" to convince OEMs that your product is high performance, but the incentives have to be attractive too. You already know Intel is familiar with this, right? Big discounts, deep pocket marketing and various other shady bribes. AMD couldn't afford that, yet, so they run cross subsidies like other companies do, just like retail phone cost more than a contract based operator.

you may be right and i suspect another reason also- increasing the market share vs intel...

Lack of 5600 non-x is just driving people to 11th-Gen i5-11400F at around $150 less for the whole platform.

Yes, the 5600X on a B550 board is better and runs cooler - but not by enough for anyone to care.

a 5600 non x would absolutely be every youtubers recommendation* and be out of stock in no time


*except in intel CPU reviews where they cant

Amd is already selling pretty much every 5600X that can be purchased online..... I doubt with how many people are paying nearly 400 usd for them amd feels any pressure to release a $220 sku that likely would just be scalped for $300+ anyway.

The 3600 ($220) and 3600X ($250) are selling very well as it is....

You do realize that margins under retail can actually be much lesser, unless we're talking Apple? While in case of OEM they mostly, if not always, buy directly from AMD. In fact in regions like India, there can be 3-4 layers of distributors/wholesalers/retailers before the final product reaches us! Someone like Ingram Micro probably supplies chips to the likes of Amazon, Newegg among others.

Exactly. A 5600 non-x is long overdue.

I bet Intel is disappointed they can't pay off OEMs to not use AMD processors anymore, like they did back in the day when they had anti-competitive practices up the ass.

Yeah, it's trash, but so far the only piece of information about the CPU's performance comes from UB. So, it's better to compare both CPUs using the same trash benchmark rather than try to extrapolate it against something else.
