AMD is today unveiling both AMD Ryzen 5000U and Ryzen 5000H CPU lineups. The Ryzen 5000H lineup is primarily based on the Zen 3 core architecture and aimed at the high-performance CPU segment while the Ryzen 5000U features both Zen 3 'Cezanne' and Zen 2 'Lucienne' based chips.

The performance differences between the lineup, as such, would be vastly different. The main reason to split the lineup into Zen 2 and Zen 3 chips is that Zen 3 is apparently going to be slightly more expensive than the Zen 2 parts and also their respective predecessors from the Renoir Ryzen 4000 lineup. The huge 19% IPC improvement and the improved cache and latency design would cover up the price difference but for those looking to get something more mainstream and budget-friendly, the Lucienne Zen 2 APUs will cover that segment.

AMD Ryzen 9 5000H Series APUs:

The AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX and Ryzen 9 5900HX CPUs are going to be the flagship offering within AMD's Cezanne-H line of notebook chips. The processor will be featuring brand new Zen 3 cores which we have seen on the desktop Ryzen 5000 lineup and as such, we can expect some huge gains in single-thread processor performance.

Specifications wise, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX will be offering 8 cores and 16 threads. The chip will feature 16 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2 cache. The base clock for both chips is rated at 3.30 GHz & the boost clocks are rated at 4.60 GHz for the Ryzen 9 5900HX and 4.80 GHz for the Ryzen 9 5980HX. Other features of the chip include an enhanced Vega GPU and also overclocking support which would be a first for AMD on the notebook segment. As such, the HX series processors will come with a higher thermal range and TDPs rated beyond 45W.

There are also the standard AMD Ryzen 9 5900H and Ryzen 9 5900HS CPUs which will feature the same core configuration but run at lower clock speeds of 3.30/4.60 GHz & 3.10 & 3.00/4.60 GHz base & boost frequencies, respectively.

AMD Ryzen 7 5000H Series APUs:

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H is based on the Zen 3 core architecture and as such, it should be part of the Cezanne-H lineup which is the direct replacement to the Renoir-H Ryzen 7 4700H CPU which utilized the Zen 2 core architecture.

Coming to the specifications, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H features 8 cores and 16 threads. The chip was running at a base clock of 3.20 GHz and a boost clock of 4.40 GHz. All cores were averaging at around 4.40 GHz within the given TDP. The CPU features 16 MB of L3 cache and 4 MB of L2 cache. The L3 cache is a major upgrade over the Ryzen 4000U and Ryzen 4000H 'Zen 2' CPUs, offering increase inter-core latency speeds and bandwidth. The CPU will come with AMD's enhanced Vega graphics core based on the 7nm process node.

AMD Ryzen 5 5000H Series APUs:

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H is a 6 core and 12 thread chip that is based on the Zen 3 architecture. It features a base clock of 3.30 GHz and a boost clock of 4.20 GHz. The CPU carries 8 MB of L3 cache and 3 MB of L2 cache.

For graphics, AMD will be relying on its trusty Vega GPU for now with higher clocks than the Ryzen 5 4600H but the same CU count of 6, offering 384 stream processors. The TDP will be set at 35W and will be configurable up to 45W.
