Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 5800: details emerge on AMD’s next processors

The Ryzen range could soon welcome two new processors: the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800. These are the versions of the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X. They should be reserved for PCs already assembled and have the particularity of having a slightly lower speed.


AMD presented its new Ryzen processors a few weeks ago. Among them, the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X. The latter should soon benefit an interesting variation according to a well-known leaker.

Indeed, according to @momomo_us, AMD would soon market “X-less” versions of these processors: the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800. They would be slightly less powerful. Technically, they would have the same SoCs (12 cores, 24 threads for the Ryzen 9 and 8 cores, 16 threads for the Ryzen 7) but with a lower frame rate. Thus, the Ryzen 9 5900 would have an average cadence of 3 GHz against 3.7 GHz for the Ryzen 5900X. The Ryzen 7 5800 would have an average speed of 3.4 GHz against 3.8 GHz for the X version. Both would have a TDP of 65 Watts, instead of 105 Watts as is the case on the already known models.

These processors could be interesting, but it seems that they are reserved for OEMs or computers. already assembled by the manufacturers. No need therefore to hope to use it to build your own machine in order to cut a little on the price, which promises to be lower.

A Ryzen 7 5700G also in the boxes?

AMD could also sell another version of its Ryzen in the coming weeks. A Ryzen 7 5700G was indeed listed at a Chinese retailer. It should adopt the Zen 3 architecture with 8 cores and 16 threads. Its boost frequency would be 4.4 GHz and its TDP 65 Watts, according to our colleagues at Tom’s Hardware.

As a reminder, the first Ryzen 5000 were announced last October and introduce the Zen 3 architecture engraved in 7 nm. If the situation is improving in terms of stocks, it has long been complicated to get one of these new processors. AMD also recently released its new line of graphics cards: the RX 6800, the RX 6800 XT and the RX 6900 XT.
