AMD is apparently readying a few more processors that belong to the new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series of processors. While some will be part of the Vermeer family, some will belong to the Cezanne family. However, all these new and mystery processors will not land on retail shelves, physical or virtual. AMD is apparently restricting these new CPUs to the OEMs only.
AMD is reportedly preparing two processors based on Vermeer silicon and two based on Cezanne. The new SKUs would still be part of the 7nm AMD Ryzen 5000 series. However, they are all designed for two different markets.
AMD Ryzen 9 5900 And Ryzen 7 5800 Desktop Processors For OEMs Only?
AMD is reportedly readying AMD Ryzen 9 5900 And Ryzen 7 5800 CPUs. These are clearly desktop-grade processors, but end-consumers might never be able to buy them individually to build their PCs. Reports indicate these CPUs are headed straight to AMD’s OEM partners. Buyers should be able to procure entire pre-built and pre-configured computers with these CPUs.

The Ryzen 9 5900 would be a 12-core CPU with a TDP of 65W. This is lower than AMD Ryzen 9 5900X TDP of 105W. The octa-core Ryzen 7 5800 non-X variant is also planned with a TDP of 65W, according to the leak. The listing of the new CPUs had apparently already appeared online, possibly on the motherboard manufacturer’s website.
AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G 65W Cezanne CPUs:
Another leak offers more information about the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G CPUs. These are allegedly Cezanne-based APUs that belong to the AMD Ryzen 5000 Series. the Cezanne-G series has a TDP of 65W and will replace the Ryzen 4000G series based on ZEN 3 ‘Renoir’ silicon.
In other words, these Cezanne-based APUs are slightly better than the ZEN 3-based Renoir-refresh. Interestingly, consumers had a better chance of finding Ryzen 4000G PRO CPUs instead of the AMD Ryzen 4000G series.
AMD is expected to officially unveil its first ZEN 3-based Cezanne APUs for Mobility Computing at next year’s CES. These new processors aren’t desktop-grade. However, AMD is offering powerful Cezanne ZEN 3 CPUs to the Mobility Computing segment at both ends: low-power as well as high-end gaming laptops.
