Here are the specifications of the Ryzen 5000 Embedded

The Ryzen 5000 series processors, based on the Zen 3 architecture, have been available for the desktop market for some time now, so much so that the Ryzen 7000 series is just around the corner. However, the embedded counterparts have not yet been discussed. The situation has changed thanks to the international IT solutions provider Advantech, which anticipated AMD itself by publishing the complete line up of Ryzen 5000 Embedded CPUs, which feature the final “E”. Here is the complete list:

Processor Core / Thread Base Clock (GHz) L3 Cache (MB) TDP (W) Ryzen 9 5950X 16/32 3,4 64 105 Ryzen 9 5950E 12/24 3 , 4 64 105 Ryzen 9 5900X 12/24 3.7 64 105 Ryzen 9 5900E 10/20 3.7 64 105 Ryzen 7 5800X 8/16 3.8 32 105 Ryzen 7 5800E 8/16 3.7 32 100 Ryzen 5 5600X 6/12 3.7 32 65 Ryzen 5 5600E 6/12 3.6 32 65 As you can see, there are some differences from the “classic” Ryzen 5000 series. In fact, the Ryzen 9 5950E has 12 cores and 24 threads, compared to the 16 cores and 32 cores of the Ryzen 9 5950X, and the Ryzen 9 5900E also has 10 cores and 20 threads, 2 cores less when compared to the Ryzen 9 5950E. The maximum TDP remains 105W and the cache frequencies and the amount of L3 cache also remain the same (with a small 100Mhz drop of the Ryzen 7 5800E compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X).

According to the sources of Wccftech colleagues, the Sunnyvale-based company will hold a press conference on August 29 to present the Ryzen 7000 processors, while a couple of weeks later the CPUs will be available for sale. Find more details in our previous dedicated news.

AMD upgrades the Ryzen Embedded series with Zen 3 and a 10-core model

Bottom line: According to one of AMD's partner system integrators, Advantech, the chip maker has made a new generation of embedded SoCs based on the Ryzen 5000-series. It's not too different from the mainstream series, but it does contain the first 10-core Zen 3 part.

Two years ago, AMD updated the Ryzen Embedded lineup with the V2000-series based on the Zen 2 architecture and the then-concurrent Ryzen 3000-series. This third generation has shifted to a nomenclature based on the mainstream processors branded the Ryzen 5000E-series.

It features four models that borrow their names — but confusingly, not all their specs — from their mainstream X-suffix counterparts. From top to bottom, the 5950E is a 12-core / 24-thread model with four cores and eight threads less than the 5950X. The 5900E is a similarly peculiar 10-core / 20-thread model with two fewer cores and four fewer threads than the 5900X.

The embedded series returns to normality with the 5800E and 5600E, which share the specs of the 5800X and 5600X. Advantech divulged one clock speed number for each processor (see table below) without saying whether they were a base clock or a boost clock, but they're all in base clock territory.

Embedded processors differ from non-embedded processors in a few ways, making them more useful for long-term edge deployments. The most critical is the integrated GPU. Unfortunately, we know nothing about this series. Embedded processors are also more power efficient, stable, and rated for longer lives. They tend to be available for purchase and are supported longer, which in AMD's case usually means 10 years.

Advantech designed the series to pair up with its new AIMB-522 motherboard, which is pretty interesting in its own right. It's a Micro-ATX, green as grass X570 motherboard, boasts excellent connectivity, including two 2.5 Gb and two 1 Gb Ethernet ports, eight USB 3.2 Gen2 and four USB 3.0 Gen2 and three USB 2.0 ports, an M.2 slot, some SATA slots, and some server-related ports.

Advantech seems to think that the 5000E-series is already shipping, at least to AMD's partners. That may or may not be the case, but given that embedded processors are rarely available for individual purchase anyway, they're mostly just cool on paper.
