Two Zen 3 CPUs — Ryzen 9 5900 and 7 5800 — with 65 W TDP headed for OEMs
AMD is already dominating the desktop PC space, but there seems to be always room for more. Today, we found out that two new processors are headed for OEMs and their specs will be similar to those of the existing Vermeer X models, but with lower TDP and clock speeds.
The unconfirmed names of the two upcoming processors are Ryzen 7 5800 and Ryzen 9 5900. Their specs include the following highlights:
- Ryzen 7 5800: 8 cores, 16 threads, 4 MB L2 cache, 32 MB L3 cache
- Ryzen 9 5900: 12 cores, 24 threads, 6 MB L2 cache, 64 MB L3 cache
Although the leaks mentioned a TDP value of 65 W for both processors, there are no clock speeds to talk about yet. While the level of performance (and prices) will be slightly lower than what the 105 W TDP processors currently on the market provide, it is also expected to see the new chips offering overclocking support. There are a few sketchy details right now, mainly concerning the accurate names and clock speeds, so we should get ready to see the first pre-built desktop setups that feature these processors showing up in the coming weeks, most likely in the first part of January.
