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.

    Thanks for the info.

    And yes, you are correct, I am better off waiting. Between the current shortage and the fact that I have a great gaming machine built around that 3800x (nVidia RTX 2070Super w/8GB VRAM, 64GB System RAM, 1 TB nVme drive) I am likely to wait at least another 18 months to build a new rig, if not 24-30.

    These new processors do sound sweet; they do sound drool worthy.

    But, I have been building my own PC since college (and those were PC-XT compatibles) I have learned that next years components are always better, and usually cheaper too (though not this year with the chips shortage). So, I will likely wait until one of my games actually take a meaningful performance hit on my machine. I end up making a new gaming rig every 3 years or so.

    Now with 5 covid vaccine shots/boosters altering my DNA :P
