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.
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
|Model||Cores/ Threads||Boost/Base Frequency (GHz)||Total Cache (MB)||TDP (Watts)|
|AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX||64C/128T||Up to 4.2 / 2.7 GHz||288||280|
|AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3975WX||32C/64T||Up to 4.2 / 3.5 GHz||144||280|
|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.
