A fortnight ago, the first reports about the new Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors appeared. It turned out that AMD is developing two Ryzen processors without the X suffix. Such solutions tend to offer lower operating frequencies.
According to @momomo_us, the upcoming Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 will use the same number of cores as the models of the same name with the X suffix. The 5900 & ; is a 12-core processor with 70 MB of cache, while the 5800 & ; is an 8-core with 36 MB of cache. At the same time, these processors will have important differences. Firstly, their power consumption will be limited to 65W, that is 40 W less than the X-series. Second, the Turbo mode speeds for these CPUs are 4.7GHz and 4.6GHz, respectively & ; 100MHz lower (base frequencies not disclosed).

The new processors will likely only be offered to OEM partners, and will not retail for those who prefer to build their own PCs. Ryzen 5 5600 has also been rumoured to cost $220, but there has been no further confirmation on the existence of such solutions yet.
AMD is also expected to release its AM4 processor family Cezanne & ; such as the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G soon. The Cezanne APUs will allegedly be unveiled as early as next week during the CES 2021 virtual show. It's unclear when or if AMD even intends to offer these new processors to retail customers, as even the 4000G series has so far been limited to OEM partners only.
