According to sources, AMD will be releasing two new Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs based on the Zen 3 architecture. The upcoming new entries will be the Ryzen 9 5900 and the Ryzen 7 5800. Both of these chips will be targeted towards OEMs. And will offer the same core configurations as their ‘X’ series brethren but the main difference comes in the clocks & TDP figures.
As per the revelations made by Patrick Schur, both chips will come with a 65W TDP which is much lower than the standard 105W TDP. The clocks will be lower for the 65W TDP parts but you will expect performance within 90-95% of the ‘X’ series SKUs. AMD Ryzen 9 5900 will carry the ‘100-000000062’ OPN code. It will feature 12 cores, 24 threads, 64 MB of L3 cache, and 2 MB of L2 cache. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800 will feature the ‘100-000000064’ and consist of 8 cores, 16 threads, 32 MB of L3 cache, and 4 MB of L2 cache.
