AMD's Ryzen 3 5300G, the company's most entry-level Cezanne Desktop APU with a quad-core design, has been overclocked to an amazing 5.6 GHz using LN2 cooling. APISAK spotted the CPU validation, which demonstrates the Zen 3 core architecture's considerably increased overclocking capabilities.
AMD Ryzen 3 5300G Overclocked to 5.6 GHz on LN2 Cooling, Zen 3 Cezanne Desktop Quad-Core Showcases Its Power
AMD just introduced their Ryzen 5000G Desktop APUs for the DIY market, although the range only includes the Ryzen 7 5700G and the Ryzen 5 5600G. The Ryzen 3 5300G was not announced for DIY, and AMD provided no explanation. The chip, as an entry-level quad-core, could have been ideal for cheap builds, but the overclocking capability would have made it much more popular.
According to a CPU-z validation database entry by user 'Yosaarianilives,' the AMD Ryzen 3 5300G was overclocked to an insane 5.6 GHz. ASUS ROG STRIX B550-I Gaming was the motherboard used. The validation can be seen here:

The AMD Ryzen 3 5300G is a pretty standard APU with four cores and eight threads. The chip has a base clock frequency of 4.0 GHz and a boost clock frequency of 4.2 GHz. The APU has an L3 cache of 8 MB and an L2 cache of 2 MB. The Ryzen 3 5300G Vega iGPU configuration includes 6 Compute Units or 384 stream processors. The TDP of the chip is 65W. The 35W Ryzen 3 5300GE has the same specs as the 35W Ryzen 3 5300, but with lower core rates of 3.6 GHz base and 4.2 GHz boost.

Again, the AMD Ryzen 3 5300G will be a really exciting chip because it has already shown to be the fastest quad-core CPU on the market (OEM sample numbers). We can't say for sure, but we expect it to be included in the DIY portfolio at some point in the future.
