Much of today's attention on AMD is rightfully on a whole new series of Ryzen 5000 Mobile CPUs. You can read all about them here. That's not to say there isn't more, and some ancillary news is of genuine interest for our enthusiast readers.

Reduced-power Ryzen 5000 Series

AMD has already expanded the Ryzen desktop stack with a whole host of high-performance processors, led by the Ryzen 9 5950X. Following on from similar moves on previous generations, AMD is now introducing two further chips for the OEM market.

Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 (note the lack of X suffix) arrive with all the goodness of Zen 3 but pare back the TDP from 105W to 65W.

As they are destined for OEM circles, there's no indicative pricing. Frequencies are solid in spite of the rather large reduction in power budget. Our initial thoughts are they'd be great for high-performance, whisper-quiet gaming and content creation rigs.

Threadripper PRO for the masses

You may recall AMD also launched Threadripper PRO processors for the burgeoning workstation market. At that time, however, the chips were reserved for pre-built workstations from a select number of qualified vendors. Now, AMD is opening up Threadripper PRO for consumers through participating global retailers, e-tailers and system integrators. Offering up to 64 cores, 8-channel memory and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, PRO bridges between regular Threadripper and server-focussed EPYC.

Teasing 3rd Gen EPYC

Speaking of EPYC, Lisa Su, CEO and President, took the opportunity of the virtual CES 2021 press conference to demo 3rd Generation EPYC, codenamed Milan, running WRF, which is one of the most popular tools for climate research and weather forecasting.

Lisa showed two 32-core, 64-thread 3rd Gen EPYC Milan CPUs up against a couple of 28-core, 56-thread Intel Xeon Gold 6258R in two similar systems each running a compute-intensive six-hour weather forecast for the continental United States. As expected, the EPYC server completed the task 68 per cent faster than the Intel machine. In other words, the increase in the number of comparison cores is more than offset by significantly higher performance. This is a canned benchmark, of course, but we're interested to see how much better Milan is than Rome.

65W 8C/16T with minimal clock speed deficit is kinda crazy.

65W 8C/16T with minimal clock speed deficit is kinda crazy.

Mildly annoying that I picked up a 5600X to stay around 65W. I guess I have a future upgrade path.

You could get the 65W TDP Ryzen 9 3900 non-X which also ran at nearly the same clockspeeds as the Ryzen 9 3900X. The best thing is AWD-IT was selling them with a B450/X470 motherboard for almost the same price as a Ryzen 9 3900X on its own.

You could just set a total package power limit in BIOS and end up the same place, if you're fixated on a specific number…?

I doubt there's anything in terms of binning here.
Sheeee. My 12/24 core idle at 180 watt total system power ( first gen Threadripper )
