AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile processor specs and performance
AMD labelled its Ryzen 5000 mobile processors as “the ultimate blend of performance and efficiency” for laptops, with boosted speeds thanks to the new Zen 3 architecture and improved battery life. These new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors have been split into three categories:
- H-Series – High-end performance for content creators and gamers.
- U-Series – Thin and light notebooks with maximised battery life.
- Pro-Series – For business-focussed portables.
Furthermore, AMD has split its H-Series in half this generation, with the HS range balancing performance and portability for on-the-go use and HX prioritising performance power above all else. All of these processor categories are labelled at the end of every mobile processor name, giving you a good idea of what user the laptop is aimed at.
The U-Series is the category that will appeal to the majority, powering productivity laptops such as the Acer Swift, Asus ZenBook and HP Pavilion ranges.
AMD claims performance and battery life improvements from the previous generation, apparently capable of keeping laptops chugging for up to 21 hours of video playback between charges.
The most powerful mobile processor of the range is called the Ryzen 7 5800U, with AMD claiming it’s the only ultra-thin laptop chip packing 8 cores. Check out the full range below:
|Architecture||Cores / Threads||Max boost (base)||GPU Cores||TDP|
|Ryzen 7 5800U||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.4 (1.9)||8||15W|
|Ryzen 7 5700U||Zen 2||8 / 16||4.3 (1.8)||8||15W|
|Ryzen 5 5600U||Zen 3||6 / 12||4.2 (2.3)||7||15W|
|Ryzen 5 5500U||Zen 2||6 / 12||4.0 (2.1)||7||15W|
|Ryzen 3 5400U||Zen 3||4 / 8||4.0 (2.6)||6||15W|
|Ryzen 3 5300U||Zen 2||4 / 8||3.8 (2.6)||6||15W|
Meanwhile, the H-Series of Ryzen 4000 processors are made for high-end laptops that are intended for content creators and gamers. The Asus ROG Flow X13, Lenovo Legion 7 and HP Omen 15 are just a few of the large selection of laptops confirmed to support H-Series Ryzen 5000 chips.
The HS series looks to balance performance and portability, with AMD looking to keep battery life respectable and keep the TDP as low as 35W. Think of super-portable gaming laptops such as the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 and you’ll have a good idea of what AMD is aiming for.
The most powerful chip of the HS range will be the Ryzen 9 5980HS, packing 8 cores, 16 threads and a max frequency speed of 4.8GHz.
The HX series will put all of the focus on performance power, meaning any laptop featuring such chips will likely be large, unwieldy and lacking battery life stamina.
On the flip side, AMD reckons these are the “world’s best mobile processors for gamers” surpassing even Threadripper processors from previous generations. When paired with an RTX 3080 GPU, AMD claims the Ryzen 9 5900HX chip is capable of enabling gaming laptops to reach up to 185.5fps for Shadow of the Tomb Raider and up to 85fps for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Check out a full breakdown of the Ryzen 5000 H-Series processor range below:
|Architecture||Cores / Threads||Max boost (base)||GPU Cores||TDP|
|Ryzen 9 5980HX||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.8 (3.3)||8||45W+|
|Ryzen 9 5980HS||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.8 (3.0)||8||35W|
|Ryzen 9 5900HX||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.6 (3.3)||8||45W+|
|Ryzen 9 5900HS||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.6 (3.0)||8||35W|
|Ryzen 7 5800H||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.4 (3.2)||8||45W|
|Ryzen 7 5800HS||Zen 3||8 / 16||4.4 (2.8)||8||35W|
|Ryzen 5 5600H||Zen 3||6 / 12||4.2 (3.3)||7||45W|
|Ryzen 5 5600HS||Zen 3||6 / 12||4.2 (3.0)||7||35W|
We’ll be reviewing many Ryzen 5000 mobile laptops throughout the year to get a better idea of performance and battery levels, so keep an eye out for more information.
AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop processor specs and performance
The Ryzen 5000 desktop series will use AMD’s new Zen 3 processor architecture, which apparently provides 19% higher instructions per clock compared to Zen 2.
The AMD Ryzen 5000 processors will see up to 16 cores and 32 threads, with boost frequency speeds as high as 4.9GHz. AMD claims the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X chips are the ultimate desktop processors for both gaming and content creation.
Every Ryzen 5000 processor, besides the Ryzen 5 5600X, will feature a 105W TDP and won’t have a Wraith Stealth cooler bundled in. This will mean you’ll need to buy you’re own cooler if you don’t already own one.
|Boost / Base Frequency (GHz)||Total Cache||Cooler|
|Ryzen 9 5950X||16C / 32T||105W||Up to 4.9 / 3.4||72MB||N/A|
|Ryzen 9 5900X||12C / 24T||105W||Up to 4.8 / 3.7||70MB||N/A|
|Ryzen 7 5800X||8C / 16T||105W||Up to 4.7 / 3.8||36MB||N/A|
|Ryzen 5 5600X||6C / 12T||65W||Up to 4.6 / 3.7||35MB||Wraith Stealth|
As per usual, AMD has gone big with core and thread counts, with the Ryzen 9 5950X chip seeing 16 cores and 32 cores. For comparison, the upcoming Intel Rocket Lake desktop processors are rumoured to max out at 8 cores and 16 threads. This could mean AMD will retain it’s superiority for multi-core performance, although Intel could make up for that with more efficient architecture and boosted clock speeds.
We’re yet to test the performance of AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop processors, but AMD has provided its own figures while there has seemingly also been some benchmark leaks. Take all of these results with a pinch of salt for now though.
AMD seemed particularly keen to highlight the single-core performance for the Ryzen 5000 processors, with both the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 5900X surpassing Intel’s i9-10900K processor in the Cinebench R20 single-threaded benchmark test.
With Intel typically excelling at gaming performance, AMD also emphasised the Ryzen 9 5900X offers an 26% faster gaming performance on average when compared to the Ryzen 9 3900 XT. A video demo even showed the Ryzen 9 5900X to boast a 40fps advantage in Shadow of the Tomb Raider when compared to its Ryzen 3000 series counterpart.
We’ll have more details on the performance once our reviews go live. Until then, keep an eye on Trusted Reviews for additional news and rumours.

Releasing on November 5, 2020, the AMD Ryzen 5000 series of processors have been gracing us with its presence for some time now. Its mid-range and high-end CPUs, in fact, are already powering such popular desktop PCs as the Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition and a gaming laptop such as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo SE, as there’s a big focus for this newly-launched lineup of processors on gaming.
With the AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs, AMD has finally dethroned Intel when it comes to raw gaming performance. The new CPU lineup is led by the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, a high-end chip packed with 16 cores and 32 threads, with a whopping 4.9GHz boost clock. That's a pretty massive generational leap over the Ryzen 9 3950X already, before you consider the boost to IPC (instructions per clock) performance, thanks to the massive Zen 3 redesign.
At CES 2021, AMD also unleashed the mobile editions of the Ryzen 5000 series, promising big things like longer battery life, and “the only 8-core x86 CPU for ultrathin laptops”. That’s not all. AMD has most recently unveiled its first Ryzen 5000 series desktop APUs or processors with built-in graphics, coming at a time when all manufacturers are struggling to replenish GPU inventory. Though PC builders will have to wait as these will only be available for pre-built systems initially.
Now that all the processors have hit the streets and we're in the process of running all of them through our lab, we can share everything you need to know if you want to upgrade to AMD's new hotness. Stock remains scarce, however, so also check out our guides like where to buy AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and where to buy AMD Ryzen 9 5900X to help you find stock if you’re struggling to take one of these home.

AMD Ryzen 5000 specs and performance
Zen 3 marks one of the biggest architecture redesigns we've seen in a single generation. These new AMD Ryzen 5000 processors are still based on the same 7nm manufacturing process as the Ryzen 3000 chips that hit the market in 2019.
The main focus of this redesign was to boost IPC performance in order to attain single-core performance that could finally topple Intel. While a good portion of this was through incredibly complicated work reducing prediction latency and implementing faster code fetching, a huge part of it is the way AMD redesigned the die itself.
You see in AMD Zen 2 processors, each Compute Die (CCD) had two Core Complexes (CCX), which each had 4 cores and 16MB of L3 cache. This means in single-core workloads, the core would only have direct access to 16MB of cache, and would have to reach outside of the CCX if more was needed. With Zen 3, however, each CCX now has 8 cores and 32MB of L3 cache, so the amount of cache that each individual core has direct access to has doubled. This cuts latency down dramatically and boosts single-core performance higher than we've ever seen.
For instance, in our testing, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is around 15-20% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X in single-core benchmarks, and manages to completely obliterate the Intel Core i9-10900K pretty much across the board.
This obviously also results in faster gaming performance, too, as the best PC games are still heavily dependent on clock speed and single-core performance. In our testing, both the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 7 5800X were about 7-9% faster than the Core i9 10900K in the games we tested. We haven't seen this much of a jump in gaming performance for processor in a while, and it mean that AMD now makes the best processor for gaming.
We're still working on the reviews for the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5950X and we'll update this article as soon as we're done testing those. We've also included our Ryzen 5000 benchmarks and specs below for your reference.
- AMD Ryzen 9 5950X: 16-core, 32 thread, 4.9GHz boost, 72 MB L2+L3 cache, 105W TDP
- AMD Ryzen 9 5900X: 12-core, 24 thread, 4.8GHz boost, 70MB L2+L3 cache, 105W TDP
