The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 9 5980HX emerge from the shadows in USB-IF listings
The USB Implementers Forums (USB-IF) has thrown up some information on two upcoming AMD APUs. We know that AMD has developed a few new Ryzen 9 laptop processors, such as the Ryzen 9 5900H, Ryzen 9 5900HS and the Ryzen 9 5900HX. However, the USB-IF states that a Ryzen 9 5980HX is also on the way. The USB-IF does not reveal many details about the APU, though.
Additionally, the same resource listed a Ryzen 7 5700G. The G in its model name tells us that it is a desktop APU and will succeed the Renoir-based Ryzen 4000G series that AMD announced last year. Presumably, AMD will leverage Cezanne cores for the Ryzen 7 5700G, but it is unclear how many it will use. The Ryzen 7 4700G is an eight-core processor, so AMD may stick with this core count for the Ryzen 7 5700G.
AMD is due to announce new processors next week. The company only may Ryzen 4000G APUs available to OEMs though, so we would not be surprised if it continues to do so with their successors. OEMs also produced hardly any Ryzen 9 4900H or Ryzen 9 4900HS-powered laptops, so the Ryzen 9 5980HX could well receive a limited release, too.
