AMD Ryzen 5 5600U Specifications Leaked: 4.2GHz Boost Clock and Vega 7 Graphics

Thanks to ExecutableFix on Twitter, we’ve got the specifications of the Ryzen 5 5600U “Cezanne” mobile processor expected to launch next year based on the Zen 3 core architecture. As expected, it’s a hex-core part with a base clock of 2.3GHz and TDP in the 15-25W range.

However, the boost clock has gone up from 4GHz on the 4600U to 4.2GHz on the 5600U. This means that we should see a healthy boost in single-threaded performance as Zen 3 boasts a massive 19% IPC increase. As such, the overall uplift in single-threaded applications should be as much as 30%, enough to crush Tiger Lake and then some.

On the GPU side, there’s also a potent upgrade. Instead of the Vega 6 used on the 4600U (@ 1500MHz), we’re getting a Vega 7 GPU running at 1.8GHz, the same as the one featured on the Ryzen 7 4700U/4800H.

As you might have already guessed by now, the Ryzen 5 5600U will be around 15-20% faster than the Ryzen 7 4700U in single-threaded workloads, while offering roughly equal performance in multi-threaded and gaming. Compared to the 4600U, we’re looking at gains in the 25-30% range across all departments.
