AMD preparing B2 stepping of Ryzen 5000 “Vermeer” CPUs with clock speed up to 5.0 GHz

AMD Vermeer Refresh, aka Ryzen 5000 XT?

Patrick Schur revealed new OPN (Processor’s Model Number) codes for two unreleased SKUs. Those SKUs are allegedly based on Vermeer, which suggests they are desktop CPUs.

According to Patrick, AMD is now working on two models: a 16-core CPU with a base clock of 3.4 GHz and boost up to 5.0 GHz and a 6-core processor with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and boost up to 4.6 GHz. The former would appear to be a refresh or Ryzen 9 5950X whereas the latter would appear to offer identical clock speeds to Ryzen 5 5600X.

While the boost clock of the alleged Ryzen 9 5950XT would be 100 MHz higher, the same wouldn’t apply to Ryzen 5 5600XT, which is listed with the same clock speeds as the current non-XT model. That said, the XT stepping may not necessarily mean the XT variants, it could simply be a model replacement, at least this logic could apply to the 6-core part.

The current lineup features 6 SKUs, but only four are available to consumers. There are two OEM parts that are sold exclusively to system integrators and OEM suppliers. So far the rumors about a processor series codenamed Warhol allegedly featuring Zen3+ core architecture have not materialized in any leak. Even people like Patrick with access to confidential information in advance, have not yet confirmed that this architecture is indeed coming.
