AMD has announced "Cezanne" desktop APUs with Zen 3 cores and Vega integrated graphics:

AMD has officially launched its next-generation Ryzen 5000G APUs codenamed Cezanne which features the brand new Zen 3 core architecture. The AMD Ryzen 5000G APUs are aimed at the consumer segment with an initial supply coming to OEM PCs first and later heading out to the gaming & mainstream DIY segment.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G will be the flagship offering within the lineup. It will feature 8 cores and 16 threads. The clock speeds are reported at a 3.8 GHz base and a 4.6 GHz boost. The CPU will carry a total of 16 MB L3 and 4 MB L2 cache with the TDP being set at 65W. The APU will also carry a Vega integrated GPU with 8 CUs or 512 stream processors running at clock speeds around 2.0 GHz. The 35W Ryzen 7 5700GE will feature the same specs but reduced core clocks of 3.2 GHz base and 4.6 GHz boost. The CPU should retail at around $350-$400 US.

Unlike the previous-generation "Renoir" desktop APUs, these processors should eventually see a retail release, but will only be offered by OEMs for now.

AMD has also launched OEM-only Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 CPUs with lower TDPs and clock speeds than their X counterparts.

Also at AnandTech.

    These parts look identical in TFAs table to the non-"PRO" parts.

    Answering my own question, the Anandtech link reveals they're simply mislabeled OEM parts because "marketing genius".

    Anyway, I'm sure this basket of apples will make quite the impression.

    Ryzen 5000 Pro Zen 3 APUs Can Be A Game Changer For Businesses [tomshardware.com]

    Frequency-wise, Ryzen 5000 Pro processors should be identical to their non-Pro versions. The biggest difference between the two product lines is the feature set. The Pro variants come with enhanced security features, 18 months of software stability, 24 months of availability and a 36-month limited warranty.

    These are currently targeted at special corporate businesses, not typical consumers. Ryzen PRO CPUs have certain uncommon most modern security features not available in previous common market grade CPUs. Encrypted memory, for one.

    Feature like this may debilitate typical hardware DMA attacks via peripheral channels, by gadgetry of agencies.
    I consider it a huge step forward.
