AMD will officially release the Ryzen 5000U and Ryzen 5000H series processors based on the Zen3 architecture at the CES 2021 exhibition next week, targeting thin and light laptops and gaming laptops. The models and specifications of the two product lines seem to be almost no secret.
But on the USB-IF website, a very special new U appeared, the model is “Ryzen 9 5980HX”, it should not be a clerical error, which means that Zen3 is on top of the Ryzen 9 5900HX/5900H/5900HS A new top member of the game family has appeared.
It’s a pity that USB-IF didn’t give any specific information about its specifications-is it going to break through 8 cores, bringing real 12 cores, or even 16 cores, to a notebook for the first time? Or is it a higher frequency 8-core?
Ryzen 9 5900HX will be the first open overclocking notebook processor in AMD history, with 8 cores and 16 threads, a base frequency of 3.3GHz, and a maximum acceleration of 4.7GHz.
Of course, this Ryzen 9 5980HX can definitely be overclocked.
In addition, USB-IF also confirmed another new product “Ryzen 7 5700G”, which appears to be a new desktop APU, with 8 cores and 16 threads.
However, the current Ryzen 4000G is still in the SI and OEM markets, and it seems that it is not going to be retailed. I wonder if the next generation will change.
