AMD ‘Cezanne’ Ryzen 5000 APU series is expected to be launched around 2021. A recently released roadmap has indicated that it will be released early next year, but we don’t know whether it will be the laptop or desktop series. The filtered version has the code name “100-000000263-30_Y” and has a total of 8 cores and 16 threads based on the Zen 3 kernel architecture.

The chip has a basic clock frequency of 3.6 GHz with the currently unknown boost frequency. We have seen first samples from Vermeer reaching up to 4.9 GHz, and considering that the Ryzen 7 4750G has already reached a boost frequency of 4.4 GHz, a clock rate of 4.5 GHz+ will not be a big deal for Cezanne APUs.

On the GPU side, the APU has the same Vega architecture as the Renoir APUs. You might get a slight improvement in the extended 7nm+ node with higher clock rates. This particular variant ran with clock rates of 1800 MHz.

The Ryzen 5000 APU was introduced on the AMD Artic-CNZ test platform and is used to test all Cezanne internal APUs. The tested chip performs below the Ryzen 7 4750G.

Unfortunately, there is no clear indication when we can expect the Ryzen 5000 “Van Gogh” APUs or their “Cezanne” desktop siblings, as AMD has yet to make an official announcement. Considering that AMD did not announce its Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs until the end of July, we may have to wait until they are released before we can receive concrete information from the company about the Ryzen 5000.

However, we are beginning to see leaks, which suggests that the APUs are moving faster than we thought. However, AMD has just launched its Ryzen 4000 product line, so it is reasonable to assume that these new APUs will not see the light of day until the current line has a chance to shine.
