Unannounced AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 CPUs surface with up to 12 cores and 24 threads
Although the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs are just around the corner, the company hasn’t stopped releasing new processors using the Zen 3 architecture. Now, a slew of AMD Ryzen 5000 Embedded chips has surfaced thanks to a specifications sheet for Advantech’s AIM-522 motherboard spotted by HXL. The CPUs include the Ryzen 9 5950E, the Ryzen 9 5900E, the Ryzen 7 5800E, and the Ryzen 5 5800E.
AMD Ryzen 5000 Embedded chips are cut-down versions of the corresponding desktop Zen 3 parts with some models offering fewer cores and others coming with lower core clock frequencies.
On the top end, the Ryzen 9 5950E enjoys 12 cores/24 threads and a 3.4 GHz base clock, while the Ryzen 9 5900E rocks 10 cores/20 threads and a 3.7 GHz base frequency. The TDP and L3 cache of both chips remains the same at 105 W and 64 MB respectively.
As a comparison, the desktop Ryzen 9 5950X offers additional 4 cores/8 threads, while the Ryzen 9 5900X packs 2 cores/4 threads more than their Ryzen Embedded counterparts. The base clock speeds, L3 cache, and TDP are identical between the embedded and the desktop parts.
Moving on, the Ryzen 7 5800E is an 8-core/16-thread part with a base clock of 3.7 GHz, 32 MB of L3 cache, and a 100 W TDP. Compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X, AMD has preserved the core configuration and cache size of the Ryzen 7 5800E while decreasing the base clock by 100 MHz and reducing the TDP by 5 W.
Finally, the Ryzen 5 5600E boasts the same core count (6 cores/12 threads), TDP (65 W), and L3 cache (32 MB) as the Ryzen 5 5600X. The only difference is a 100 MHz slower base clock of 3.6 GHz.
