AMD Ryzen 5 5560U

AMD R5 5560U

The AMD Ryzen 5 5560U, is a fairly fast Cezanne family processor designed for use in thinner, lighter laptops. The R5 5560U integrates six of the eight cores based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture. The cores are clocked at 2.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 4 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT for a total of 12 threads. The chip is manufactured on the modern 7 nm TSMC process.

The new Zen 3 microarchitecture offers a significantly higher IPC (instructions per clock) compared to Zen 2. For desktop processors AMD claims 19 percent on average and in applications reviews showed around 12% gains at the same clock speed.

In addition to the six CPU cores, the APU also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 6 integrated graphics card with 6 CUs at up to 1600 MHz. The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-3200 and energy efficient LPDDR4-4266 RAM. Furthermore, 16 MB level 3 cache (up from 8 MB at the 4800U) can be found on the chip.

Performance

The Ryzen 5 is a solid upper mid-range CPU and should be only slightly slower than the Ryzen 5 5600U (+200 MHz Boost).

Power consumption

This Ryzen 5 has a default TDP of 15 W, a value that laptop makers are allowed to change to anything between 10 W and 25 W with clock speeds and performance changing accordingly as a result. By going for the lowest value possible, it is possible to build a passively cooled system around this chip. Most laptop makers, however, will do the opposite to maximize performance.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5560U is built with TSMC's 7 nm manufacturing process for average, as of mid 2023, energy efficiency.
