Hm, that's weird. Probably a semi-official/not-quite-on-the-roadmap salvage SKU made from dice with enough defects to not qualify as even a 5600U, to ensure that every single usable die is put to use. Given the maturity of TSMC's 7nm process at this point, I would expect the number of Cezanne dice with that many defects (more than two defective cores, some sort of interconnect error, two defective CUs, etc.) to be near zero, and it doesn't make any sense for them to sell cut-down chips that could have gone to a higher bin when there's a shortage. So I would expect that SKU to show up in one or two designs at the most.
