The unreleased eight-core Ryzen 7 5700
AMD may release another Cezanne series processor.The Ryzen 7 5700 has been found in the Geekbench 5 synthetic test database.Apparently, the chip is a version of the hybrid APU Ryzen 7 5700G, lacking an integrated graphics core.Image source: AMDThe Ryzen 7 5700 processor's affinity with the Ryzen 7 5700G is hinted at by its equipment.The chip is built on the Zen 3 architecture, has eight physical cores with support for 16 virtual threads and received 16 MB of L3 cache memory.The difference between models is in clock speeds.The Ryzen 7 5700G has a base frequency of 3.8 GHz, while the Ryzen 7 5700 model has 3.7 GHz.At the same time, the maximum frequency in both cases is the same - 4.6 GHz.But the main difference between the chips, as mentioned above, is the Ryzen 7 5700 model's lack of integrated Radeon Vega graphics.So why can't it be the Ryzen 7 5700X version? At least the latter has twice as much cache memory of the third level, and the base frequency is lower.Image source: Tom's HardwareThe Ryzen 7 5700 scored 1546 points in the single-core test, and 8502 points in the multi-core test.By comparison, the Ryzen 7 5700G scores 1,547 points in the single-threaded test and 9,032 points in the multi-threaded test.In other words, the Ryzen 7 5700G is about 6% faster in the second case.All indications are that the Ryzen 7 5700 is still the same Ryzen 7 5700G, but only with base frequency lowered by 100 MHz and without the mentioned iGPU. Source image: GeekbankshAt the moment, it is unknown whether AMD plans to release the processor to retail or it will be distributed through PC OEM manufacturers.Or maybe AMD will not release this chip at all.Recall that the Ryzen 7 5700G cost $359 at the launch of sales.Now it has dropped to $289.How much cheaper the Ryzen 7 5700 will be priced is still unclear.The forecast is also complicated by the fact that the more productive Ryzen 7 5700X model now sells for about $287.
AMD announced Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX for retail - they will offer 24 to 64 cores of Zen 3
Debuted in March, AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors have been offered exclusively as part of Lenovo's ThinkStation P620 workstations for months.Dell recently said the chips will be available this summer as part of its Dell Precision 7865 workstations.AMD has announced today that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX will soon be generally available.Image source: AMDThe Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000W will start being offered as part of other OEM workstations in July, and the chips will be available at retail later this year.However, we are not talking about the entire series of these processors, but only three models: The 24-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX, the 32-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX and the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX.Recall that the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series consists of five CPU models with 12 to 64 cores operating at frequencies from 2.7 to 4.5 GHz.The five models are based on Zen 3 architecture, offer up to 2TB of eight-channel DDR4 memory, have 64 to 128 MB of L3 cache, support 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and have a claimed TDP of 280W. All Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX chips are designed to work with AMD sWRX80 CPU socket and motherboards equipped with WRX80 chipset, so there is a 19% increase in IPC (number of instructions per clock) over the previous Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3000WX series' Zen 2 architecture.To support the new chips you'll need to update motherboard BIOS.
Dell has introduced Precision 7865 workstations based on Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX
Dell has announced Precision 7865 workstations based on Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX processors.The chips have been used exclusively by Lenovo in its P620 workstations in the months since their release.Dell will offer up to 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX, up to 1TB of DDR4 RAM with error correction feature (ECC) and a choice of NVIDIA RTX A6000 or AMD Radeon Pro W6800 gas pedals for its systems.Image source: DellThe Precision 7865 workstation is 14 percent smaller than its predecessor Precision 7820, Dell said.The manufacturer says it has paid very close attention to the new workstations' cooling, as well as their acoustics.The new Precision 7865 uses a hexagonal airflow pattern to deliver fresh air directly to key system components.For easy portability, the system is equipped with a handle.The front of the case is richly equipped.This includes two quick-swap bays, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C connectors (one with PowerShare feature), two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A connectors as well as an SD 6.0 card reader and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.An optional optical disk drive is also available.On the rear panel there are two LAN ports (one 10 Gb/s), three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A and one audio jack.One serial port is also provided.Dell also offers Thunderbolt 3 connectors for the system, but their work is provided by an additional expansion card.The set of video connectors depends entirely on the selected gas pedal.Ryzen Threadripper processors have no integrated graphics, and the company offers a choice of NVIDIA RTX A6000 or AMD Radeon Pro W6800.Each has a power consumption rating of 300W.The system also allows you to install up to 56 TB of permanent memory via RAID arrays.The capacity of DDR4-3200 RAM can be up to 1 Tbyte.Everything runs from a 1350 Watt power supply with 80 Plus certification.The Dell Precision 7865 workstations will go on sale this summer.The company did not disclose their price.Taking into account the previous offers, it is likely that the price tag will start at $3000 in the base configuration.
Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor Overview: Final Point Socket AM4
Ryzen processors with 3D V-Cache technology, which expands cache memory with additional SRAM semiconductor crystal, were first mentioned by AMD exactly one year ago - at Computex 2021.And at that time, this announcement has created a real furore.On the one hand, through it AMD has confirmed its technological potential, as it showed its readiness to introduce an advanced technology of 3D-mounting of semiconductor chips and expand the chip design of its processors in the vertical direction.On the other hand, it has promised to significantly strengthen the Ryzen 5000 series by the end of 2021, adding a flagship 12-core processor with a giant cache and significantly increased performance in gaming applications.However, these Napoleonic plans - at least in their original form - were not fated to materialize.Promised Ryzen 9 5900X with 3D V-Cache technology never came out, and instead of it AMD released another consumer CPU with increased cache according to this technology - Ryzen 7 5800X3D.And it frankly looks a lot less spectacular. Firstly, Ryzen 7 5800X3D is just an octa-core CPU, which obviously cannot be a universal flagship solution, because 12- and 16-core solutions have been widely available in the desktop segment for a long time.Secondly, by the end of this year there will be more progressive processors based on Zen 4 microarchitecture in AMD's arsenal, which will almost certainly eclipse the Ryzen 7 5800X3D due to the IPC index growth and DDR5 SDRAM support.And third, with the introduction of the Alder Lake family late last year, the leadership in desktop processor performance has gone to Intel.Because Alder Lake offers higher specific performance than Zen 3, Ryzen 7 5800X3D now has to solve a completely different problem: it does not set new performance records in games, but only tries to catch up with competitor processors in an extensive way - by multiplying the amount of cache memory.In other words, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D output ended up being quite stripped out, and it seems that AMD lost a lot from the fact that it missed the deadline and made the model not at all what it promised.Nevertheless, that doesn't stop it from touting the Ryzen 7 5800X3D as \"the world's fastest gaming processor.\" However, there is a feeling that AMD overestimates the capabilities of its product: at least, many independent reviews could not confirm AMD's rightness in performance evaluations of the novelty.And for this reason we decided to test Ryzen 7 5800X3D with our own hands.Moreover it is not only unique by its design AMD processor, but also a kind of a final line in the history of Socket AM4 ecosystem: its development on Ryzen 7 5800X3D stops completely and no other CPU models will be available for this socket anymore.⇡# 3D V-Cache in detailsThe idea to expand cache capacity for better performance obviously did not come from AMD out of nowhere.Moving large amounts of data closer to the processor cores, which dramatically increases the speed of access to them - a fairly simple trick, which AMD liked before.AMD processors have long been distinguished by the amount of cache memory, and the company's marketing department uses the name Game Cache for it, explicitly stating that a capacious L3 cache is extremely useful for games.The opposite is also true: Ryzen processors with reduced cache, such as Ryzen 5 5500, have rather modest gaming performance.Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a processor where the idea of increasing cache capacity in the name of maximum FPS is taken to the absolute limit: it has 96 MB of L3 per eight cores (12 MB per core).But its main peculiarity is not even the impressive size of the cache, but the design, which is figuratively described in the model number of the processor with the ending \"3D\".It means that in the Ryzen 7 5800X3D cache is expanded with an additional 3D V-Cache crystal, which is physically superimposed on the original processor chip on top - in the third dimension.In words it sounds quite simple: an additional 64 MB SRAM chip is mounted on top of the 32 MB L3 cache present in the CPU chip and connected to it through connections.But in reality it is much more complicated. To place the superstructure in the form of a 3D-cache crystal on the processor chip, AMD had to work with TSMC on a special production technology, which would reduce the thickness of the combined from two parts - CCD (Core Complex Die) and 3D-cache - integrated device.As a result, it is reduced to the height of a single chip of conventional processors, so Ryzen 7 5800X3D fits into exactly the same package as other Ryzen family processors and does not require any special cooling systems or their mounts.This is achieved by two techniques.First
Ryzen 5 5500 processor review: affordable six-core that is late
It so happened that the Ryzen 5000 series release coincided with the crisis on the semiconductor market and the peak of chip shortage, as a result of which AMD had to severely limit the variety of model range.In November 2020, the company released only one model each with 6, 8, 12 and 16 cores, with the minimum price of a processor with Zen 3 progressive cores above $300.This approach displeased AMD fans, but the company had no other choice: the production quotas which it managed to get from its manufacturing partner, TSMC, were not enough even to cover demand for expensive processors.A year and a half passed since then, and the problem with the lack of production capacity for the manufacture of Zen 3 semiconductor chips weakened noticeably.But AMD did not hurry to expand the Ryzen 5000 lineup - the situation was quite good for it, because by selling more expensive processors it was increasing its profits.Yes, with this approach the users of low-cost systems had no opportunity to get processors with progressive microarchitecture at their disposal, but the company did not care much: it was quite successful in distributing obsolete solutions of Ryzen 3000 series among this audience.And these processors were also in high demand, because the alternatives, which until recently were offered by Intel, did not have serious competitive advantages.However, with the appearance of Alder Lake the situation has changed dramatically.Intel created a very successful processor family which was almost immediately available in all price segments.Because of this, it turned out that with the advent of 2022 there was nothing suitable in AMD's range that the company could counter the competitor's punchy processors like Core i5-12600K, Core i5-12400 and Core i3-12100, which very quickly came out on top in the sales statistics.So as soon as AMD realized that its market position had staggered and its share of the desktop market began to rapidly shrink, it immediately moved to retaliate.Firstly, it aggressively reduced prices on all available Ryzen 5000 series processors by 25-30%.Secondly, the lineup was replenished at once with several new products - available eight- and six-core carriers of the Zen 3 microarchitecture. Thus, since the beginning of April, sales of the $300 Ryzen 7 5700X eight-core and two six-core models: the $200 Ryzen 5 5600 and the $160 Ryzen 5 5500 started on the global market.Unfortunately, in Russia, which is now cut off from direct supplies, these models arrived with a noticeable delay and not at the prices AMD intended for them.But nevertheless, the most affordable CPU among the new products, Ryzen 5 5500, still looks interesting.In \"normal life\" it should be the cheapest six-core with modern microarchitecture, but in the current reality its Russian price is approximately equal to the cost of the youngest six-core Alder Lake, Core i5-12400, which is still quite good.That is why the 3DNews lab immediately started a detailed testing of this promising product as soon as the opportunity presented itself.It is worth to remind that AMD has already tried to produce such budget six-core units, which became the cheapest variants in their class, for example Ryzen 5 3500 and 3500X.However, they were only available in certain geographical regions and also had significantly reduced specifications.In Ryzen 5 3500 and 3500X, for example, the company turned off SMT technology, which was a big hit to performance.But the new Ryzen 5 5500 is a completely different breed of processor.It is globally available, the SMT technology is in place, and the main difference from the older brothers is the reduction of cache memory, which at first glance does not look catastrophic loss and makes familiarity with it only more interesting.⇡#Ryzen 5 5500 in detailsThe Ryzen 5000 lineup has undergone very noticeable changes this spring.Now there are eight representatives instead of four.The expansion took place mainly \"downwards\", but among the new models there is also the innovative Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 3D V-Cache technology, which is positioned by the company as a kind of gaming flagship.The composition of the family is listed in the table below, and, pay attention, a separate column - \"Current price\" is added to it.It shows retail prices of Ryzen 5000 family members on the world market after the occurred price reduction (in Russia, of course, the situation with prices is different, and there is no point in discussing it within the scope of this article).Cores/threadsFrequency, GHzL3, MbytesTDP, Wofficial priceCurrent priceRyzen 9 5950X16/323,4-4, 964105$799$559Ryzen 9 5900X12/243.7-4.864105$549$399Ryzen 7 5800X3D8/163.4-4.592105$449$449Ryzen 7 5800X8/163.8-4.732105$449$349Ryzen 7 5700X8/163.4-4.63265$299$
All MSI 300-series chipset-based motherboards get support for Ryzen 5000 processors
MSI announced that all of its 300-series AMD chipset-based motherboards (A320, B350 and X370) get support for Ryzen 5000 CPUs based on Zen 3 architecture, including the latest Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 3D V-Cache extended memory technology.Picture source: MSIThe company notes that support is provided by new BIOS firmware based on AMD AGESA COMBO PI V2 126.96.36.199 library set for mainboards.Release of updated versions of BIOS will begin in the middle of this month.The manufacturer also announced that it will begin releasing beta versions of BIOS based on the specified AGESA libraries for AMD 400 and 500 series motherboards at the beginning of June.The update will address the problem of Windows 10 and 11 freezes on systems with Ryzen and fTPM enabled.
The first Ryzen 7000X processor tests appeared in OpenBenchmarking
According to information available today, AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7000X desktop processors on Zen 4 architecture will be launched this September, the first samples are already being tested, with mass production scheduled for June.A preliminary sample recently appeared in the Openbenchmarking database.It has been tested in a Linux environment (Ubuntu 20.04), and it looks like most of the tests focused on the embedded GPU.In addition, Moore's Law Is Dead published expected performance gains for Ryzen 7000X models.Advertisement OpenBenchmarking database records show an 8-core, 16-thread processor codenamed OPN 100-000000666, which matches the previous January leak.Apparently, the chip was tested May 4 on the AMD Splinter-RPL AM5 reference platform, and its maximum clock speed can reach 5.21 GHz.Resource Videocardz notes that the iGPU has the identifier GFX1036, which is a new variant belonging to the Beige Goby/Yellow Carp/Van Gogh family.There is also a Radeon HD audio codec, borrowed from the recently released Ryzen 6000 mobile processors. Unfortunately, the tests were not conducted at maximum GPU clock speeds, so you can't really compare the results with similar models from Nvidia and Intel.According to Videocardz, Ryzen 7000X iGPUs are not designed for gaming, but they should offer basic multimedia capabilities. The IPC increase of the Zen 4 chips over the Zen 3 is expected to be between 15 and 24 percent, about 6 percent higher than the Zen 3 over the Zen 2.The increase in clock speeds will also give an increase of 8 to 14 percent.All of this combined could result in a 28 to 37 percent performance increase in single-core mode, and the performance gains in multithreaded mode will be even higher.AMD is also increasing to 1MB of L2 cache per core instead of the previous 512KB, and by default the new processors will support RAM speeds up to DDR5-5200.Rewarded for the postThis piece was written by a site visitor and is rewarded.
