AMD Ryzen 7 5700 Surfaces Without Integrated Graphics

While AMD zen 4 processors are currently trading blows with the best Intel has to offer, AMD hasn’t yet moved on from their Zen 3 AM4 chips.

Gigabyte has listed an unannounced Zen 3 chip from the Ryzen 5000G processors. The Ryzen 7 5700 was first spotted last year however, this is the first time that the 5700 has been part of an official listing.

The Ryzen 5700 is an octa-core process with 16 threads. This sounds familiar and has been seen before in the Ryzen 7 5700x and Ryzen 7 5700G processors. According to Gigabytes CPU support list, the Ryzen 7 5700 is more akin to the 5700G as it is using AMD’s Cezanne architecture instead of the newer Vermeer process the 5700x is based on. Basically the 5700 will be a 5700G without the integrated graphics.

Other differences include a 100Mhz lower base clock when compared to the 5700G but, sharing the same 4MB L2 cache and the same 16MB L3 cache.

The 5700 will slot into the same AM4 socket, interestingly not even needing new motherboard firmware. While Gigabyte has this processor listed, other motherboard manufactures don’t – it is unknown if Gigabyte added the processor to this list themselves or if AMD gave the go ahead.

It’s likely that the 5700 won’t be a retail product, given the specs – its also likely the chip will be used in OEM pre-built systems. With AMD investing heavily in it’s new Zen 4 product line, the chip-maker is likely getting rid of old Zen 3 silicon that didn’t cut the mustard for the 5700G. The tech industry won’t be complaining about getting yet another Ryzen chip, even if it’s lacking the rather powerful iGPU the 5700G wields.
