The new Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors aren’t the only new thing AMD has, as they’ve also announced the release of the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800, the reduced-TDP alternatives for its award-winning Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X desktop processors.

Well, the only downside here is that these processors are currently available only to pre-built OEM systems. Though we won’t know if AMD will make them available to the public in the near future just like how they did with the once OEM-exclusive Ryzen 5 3500.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 14

Ryzen 9 5900 & Ryzen 7 5800

Model Cores/Threads Base Frequency (GHz) Boost Frequency (GHz) Cache (MB) TDP (Watts)
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12C/24T 3.7 GHz Up to 4.8GHz 70 105
AMD Ryzen 9 5900 12C/24T 3.0 GHz Up to 4.7GHz 70 65
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8C/16T 3.8GHz Up to 4.7GHz 36 105
AMD Ryzen 7 5800 8C/16T 3.4 GHz Up to 4.6GHz 36 65

For the specifications, both the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 will feature a lower TDP at 65W but the rest of the numbers have somewhat given us an impression that they’re the nerfed version of the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X. The base clock is noticeably lower, with only 3.0GHz on the Ryzen 9 5900 and 3.4GHz on the Ryzen 7 5800, but they can still boost to almost on par (100MHz slower) with the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X when necessary.

According to AMD, the Ryzen 9 5900 desktop processor will offer an average of 24% faster 1080p gaming across select titles compared to the prior generation. So you can expect to see a better performing AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors powered pre-built systems from the participation partners very soon.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3955WX 16C/32T Up to 4.3 / 3.9 GHz 72 280

Additionally, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processors will now be directly available to consumers through participating global retailers, e-tailers, and system integrators with on-shelf availability expected in March 2021. If you’re a content creator who is looking for the Ryzen Threadripper PRO for your workstation, this is probably the chance you’ve been waiting for.
