AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 APU Specifications Revealed

HP México has inadvertently revealed the specifications for AMD's forthcoming Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) desktop APUs. Hardware detective momomo_us spotted the details in a document for the HP Pavilion gaming desktop TG01-2003ns.

AMD has been diligently transitioning its entire processor portfolio over to the latest Zen 3 microarchitecture. The desktop APU and Threadripper product lines are the last ones on the list to receive the Zen 3 treatment. Like the Ryzen 5000 mobile variants, desktop Cezanne will exploit the Zen 3 microarchitecture but still retain the old Vega graphics engine. However, we expect the latter to feature some improvements in terms of better clock speeds.

While we've seen countless leaks of the Ryzen 5000 APUs, this is the first time that we're getting information from a solid source. As expected, AMD has prepared three Ryzen 5000 APUs to replace the current Ryzen 4000 (Renoir) APU lineup. Logically, the Ryzen 7 5700G will be the flagship APU, and the Ryzen 5 5600G is the middle man, while the Ryzen 3 5300G is the entry-level part.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Cezanne APU Specifications

ProcessorCores / ThreadsBase / Boost Clocks (GHz)L3 Cache (MB)TDP (W)
Ryzen 7 5700G8 / 163.8 / 4.61665
Ryzen 7 4700G8 / 163.6 / 4.4865
Ryzen 5 5600G6 / 123.9 / 4.41665
Ryzen 5 4600G6 / 123.7 / 4.2865
Ryzen 3 5300G4 / 84.0 / 4.2865
Ryzen 3 4300G4 / 83.8 / 4.0465

Ryzen 5000 will stick to the same core count as its predecessor. The APUs will max out at eight Zen 3 cores. However, Ryzen 5000 will offer double the L3 cache across the board. The Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G have 16MB of L3 cache at their disposal, while the Ryzen 3 5300G is limited to 8MB.

The improvement in clock speeds isn't significant, but Zen 3's true value lies within its IPC. In terms of operating clocks, Ryzen 5000 appears to come with 200 MHz higher base and boost clocks in comparison to their Ryzen 4000 counterparts.

The Ryzen 7 5700G arrives with eight cores and 16 threads. The octa-core part boasts base and boost clock speeds of 3.8 GHz and 4.6 GHz, respectively. The Ryzen 5 5600G, on the other hand, comes wielding six cores and 12 threads. HP listed the Ryzen 5 5600G with a 3.9 GHz base clock and a 4.4 GHz boost clock. The Ryzen 3 5300G will round off the Ryzen 5000 lineup. The APU seemingly checks in with a 4 GHz base clock and a 4.2 GHz boost clock.

The jury is still out on whether AMD will make the Ryzen 5000 desktop APUs available to the public. In case you've forgotten, Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs were limited to OEMs. While you could still buy one from the grey market, it was a hassle due to the overseas shipping and the fact that you're buying a product that doesn't come with a warranty. We've seen what Zen 3 can do in AMD's Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) processors, and it would be a shame if AMD left APU enthusiasts in the cold again.

    Now AMD is impressing me. If these Chips make it to retail it will sell as well as other 5000’s.
    Ive stayed with Intel because of single core performance and compatibility.
    I said if AMD releases a 5000 APU for the desktop I’d look to Intel for a Tiger Lake desktop first.
    Whoever gets there first gets 4 sales from me.

    Way to go AMD

    Given the current cost/availability of a discrete GPU, I could see some of these like the 5700G also being used (though not by me) in a low-end server configuration. Doing the math, it should be about 70% as fast as my 7 year old 24C/48T server (holy $#%^!) under similar workloads... kind of makes me wish AMD would get moving along on making 16C/32T chiplets, though the idea of turning those into an APU might be a stretch.

    ...In case you've forgotten, Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs were limited to OEMs. While you could still buy one from the black market, it was a hassle due to the overseas shipping and the fact that you're buying a product that doesn't come with a warranty....

    Not entirely true. You can buy Ryzen 5 Pro at one of the online shops in my country. It'a an OEM/Tray, but it has seller warranty. That's how I got my Ryzen 5 Pro 3350G. The Ryzen 5 3400G was in such a short supply I took a risk and bought a Pro version to have a CPU at all.

    Here's a link for those interested:
    Ryzen 5 Pro 4650
    It's around $270 or €230.

    With AMD being stretched thin on 7nm wafer supply, the 5xxxG will likely be OEM-only just like their 4xxxG counterparts.

    I'm very curious to see how these will do in gaming performance.

    the 4700G when paired with DDR4-3200 CAS 16 RAM gave performance similar to a GT 1050. 3600 made it close to a 1050ti.

    if the 5700G can get above a 1050ti on 3200, that makes the APU a genuine entry-level gamer for 1080p

    Are you guys going to review the RTX 4090 that was revealed today?

    I just ordered one from eBay, because the desk vibration feature is even more impressive than LED lighting.
    I hope it is not like the last 5 GPUs I bought (for $2000 each) that were just a picture of the card when I received them.
    I was so mad they wouldn't accept a return, but then realized that I should just be happy I'm still alive (unlike all of my friends that stopped contacting me, so they must be dead).

    Happy April 1st!!!

    I already ride 5500u in laptop and I tell you, those will be sff heaven.
    its FINALLY a place where you can have 150W build that does not scream like damned soluls, or could game normally.
    NV is focusing roaring 700W builds, which is good for people with big bois, and I am glad that 20-200W ones are also getting some love.
    I hope I get to find any stock, I did not have luck with 4k series, and my tv vesa mounted box plan is waiting for better days.

    I keep my fingers crossed. If AMD can deliver a good APU with 5000 Ryzen series I'm changing my CPU. Gaming up to 1080p is what I'm aiming for, plus low power consumption and low noise.
