The AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G is a desktop processor with 6 cores, launched in June 2021. It is part of the Ryzen 5 lineup, using the Zen 3 (Cezanne) architecture with Socket AM4. Thanks to AMD Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) the core-count is effectively doubled, to 12 threads. Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G has 16MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.9 GHz by default, but can boost up to 4.4 GHz, depending on the workload. AMD is building the Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G on a 7 nm production process using 10,700 million transistors. The silicon die of the chip is not fabricated at AMD, but at the foundry of TSMC. The multiplier is locked on Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G, which limits its overclocking capabilities. With a TDP of 65 W, the Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G consumes typical power levels for a modern PC. AMD's processor supports DDR4 memory with a dual-channel interface. The highest officially supported memory speed is 3200 MHz, but with overclocking (and the right memory modules) you can go even higher. For communication with other components in the computer, Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor features the Radeon Vega 7 integrated graphics solution. Hardware virtualization is available on the Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, AMD is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
