AMD Ryzen 5 5500U

AMD R5 5500U

The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U is a processor for thin and light laptops based on the Lucienne generation. The R5 5500U integrates six cores based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture. They are clocked at 2.1 (guaranteed base clock) to 4 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (12 threads). The chip is manufactured in the modern 7 nm process at TSMC. Compared to the older and similar Ryzen 5 4500U (Renoir), the Ryzen 5 5500U offers Hyperthreading. The faster Ryzen 5 5600U is already based on the newer Zen 3 architecture. See our hub page on the Renoir Processors for more information.

The performance should be slightly higher than the old Ryzen 5 4500U (thanks to SMT support).

In addition to the six CPU cores, the APU also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 7 integrated graphics card with 7 CUs and up to 1800 MHz . The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-3200 and energy efficient LPDDR4-4266 RAM. Furthermore, 8 MB level 3 cache can be found on the chip.

The TDP of the APU is specified at 15 Watt (default) and can be configured from 10 to 25 Watt by the laptop vendor (most chips are configured higher than 15 Watt). That means the chip is intended for thin and light laptops (but with fans).
