Back in April of this year, AMD announced the new series of Ryzen desktop APUs, known as 5000G Cezanne. This new line of processors with integrated graphics uses AMD’s newest Zen 3 cores with Vega graphics to deliver an upgrade on the previous 4000 series. The three chips in question, 5750G, 5650G, and 5350G, have recently been tested in their retail variation.
While the DIY processors (5700G, 5600G) are set to be available to buy from the 5th of august, it was unknown when the Pro 5000G variants, which have been available for OEM since the start of June, would be fully released but with more and more of these finding their way to the APAC market, more published benchmarks are appearing.
AMD Ryzen PRO 5000G Cezanne Zen 3 Desktop APUs
As you can see, there is no difference between the Ryzen 5000G and Pro 5000G APUs specifications, however, the commercial desktop processors feature two categories based on TDP – the 65W Pro 5000G series and the 35W Pro 5000GE series. These feature additional security, which includes AMD’s Shadow Track technology, Secured-core PC, and FIPS 140-3 certification. While the specifications may be the same between each model’s variants (5700G, 5700GE, 5750G), the 35W models come with a reduced clock speed.
AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5750G 8-Core Desktop APU
The 5750G is AMD’s flagship APU, featuring eight cores and 16 threads. The clock speeds reportedly match the Ryzen 7 5700G’s, at a base of 3.8GHz and a boost speed of 4.6GHz. The 5700GE variant differs slightly in this area, with a lower base clock speed of 3.2GHz. This processor brings a total of 16MB L3 and 4MB of L2 cache with a 65W TDP. The integrated graphics on this APU, of course, Vega, and features 8 CUs or 512 stream processors that run at a clock speed of 2GHz. The 5700GE variant comes with the same specs, however, features a 35W TDP.
AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G 6-Core Desktop APU
The 5650G is the six-core and 12 thread processor in the lineup, with a base clock speed of 3.9GHz and a max boost of 4.4GHz. This APU gets the same amount of L3 and L2 cache as the flagship model and also shares the same 65W TDP. The graphical processing is slightly weaker on the 5650G, with 448 stream processors clocked at 1900MHz. The 35W TDP variant (5650GE), just like the 5750GE, features reduced base clock speeds of 3.4GHz.
AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 5350G 4-Core Desktop APU
Lastly, the budget 5350G model is your standard four-core and eight-thread APU, with a base clock speed of 4GHz that has a boost speed of 4.2GHz. This APU only brings 8MB of L3 and 2MB of L2 cache to the table. The Vega graphics on this model feature six CUs or 384 stream processors that are clocked at 1600MHz. Just like the others, the lower 35W variant comes with the same specifications, however, features a reduced base clock speed of 3.6GHz.
AMD Ryzen PRO 5000G Benchmarks (Source: Chiphell)
As previously mentioned, new benchmarks were recently published on the Chiphell Forums, showing how these APUs perform in comparison to the previous-gen and other Zen 3 based processors.
Benchmark Test System:
- Motherboard: ASRock X570 Taichi Razer Edition
- RAM: 16 GB ZADAK SPARK DDR4-3600 (CL17)
- Cooler: high-end tower air-cooler for stock performance and a 360mm AIO for overclocked testing
- PSU: Antec HCG-X1000
Below, you can see the significant improvements across the board, with the biggest coming from the 6 core APU that managed an 18% boost in cinebench multithreaded tests over the older 4650G. The 8 core 5750G followed suit, with a 12% increase, however, the 4 core 5350G was by far the weakest of the lot. You can see similar trends throughout the testing but what was most impressive was how close the overclocked 5750G got to the 5800X.
The gaming benchmarks showed a max of around 5% in gains from the predecessors but these are with games that don’t take advantage of AMD’s FSR technology. FSR combined with overclocking power of the new APU lineup looks like a match made in heaven, especially for budget builders and anyone looking for a gaming PC in the current climate.
Ryzen 7 5750G, Ryzen 5 5650G, & Ryzen 3 5350G Release Date
The PRO 5000G APUs were released by AMD on June 1st for OEM. The 5700G and 5600G consumer DIY chips are both set to be released from the 5th of August, hopefully along with some more announcements.
Ryzen 7 5750G, Ryzen 5 5650G, & Ryzen 3 5350G Price
There is no price listed for the Ryzen PRO 5000G variants but some have already cropped up on eBay. Several engineering samples are also available for the non-pro variants too. If these were to have a price, you would expect to see a slight increase over the non-pro variants due to the increased security benefits for businesses that feature.
