Data-miner @momomo_us has unearthed details of two new Vermeer desktop processors: the AMD Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800. Along with the names, the leaker has also offered up some of the specs for the chips, which certainly show them to be potentially attractive options for users. But there is the chance that these SKUs will be headed towards manufacturers only, leaving them off the table for desktop PC tinkerers.
In terms of specs, the Ryzen 7 5800 appears to be an 8-core processor with a total cache of 36 MB and a boost clock of 4.6 GHz. The Ryzen 9 5900 delivers 12 cores and 70 MB total cache while processing at up to 4.7 GHz. With both parts likely to have TDPs of 65 W, they stand up very well to their already known Zen 3 X-suffixed counterparts, the Ryzen 7 5800X (3.8 GHz-4.7 GHz; 105 W) and the Ryzen 9 5900X (3.7 GHz-4.8 GHz; 105 W).
Sadly for those interested in snapping up one of these new Ryzen 5000 parts that will also utilize the AM4 socket, it has been suggested that they are going to be for OEM partners only. As pointed out by VideoCardz, this is what happened with the Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs that were released in July 2020. Several members of the Ryzen 3000 desktop CPU series were also OEM-only, such as the Pro SKUs, the Ryzen 9 3900, and the Ryzen 5 3500 (OEM exclusive in western markets).
