HP Laptops With AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Picasso APUs Debut In Benchmarks Leak

It looks as though Geekbench is providing us with some pretty good insight on incoming Ryzen 3000 Series processor from AMD. However, these aren't the 7nm Zen 2 monsters that we've been talking about in recent weeks. Instead, the leaks pertain to upcoming Picasso APUs that pair 12nm FinFET Raven Ridge CPU architecture with Vega GPUs.

We have to give a shout out to Hexus, which managed to track down three separate Geekbench listing for upcoming Hewlett-Packard notebooks. The three machines are as follows:

  • HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3500U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
  • 4 cores, 8 threads
Ryzen 5 3500U%20
  • HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3300U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
  • 4 cores, 4 threads
Ryzen 3 3200U%20
  • HP Laptop 14-cm1xxx
  • AMD Ryzen 3 3200U (2.6GHz) with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
  • 2 cores, 4 threads
Ryzen 3 3300U%20

Looking at the numbers, the Ryzen 5 3500U seems to most closely align with the Core i5-7400 with respect to performance. As we've seen with previous leaked roadmaps for Picasso, it is merely a refinement of the existing Raven Ridge design that has been tweaked for power efficiency and an overall performance lift. In addition, it will be socket compatible with AM4 on the desktop and FP5 for notebook/convertible platforms.

What's unknown at this point, however, is when these processors will actually debut. Given that notebooks from Hewlett-Packard are already showing up in benchmarks leads us to believe that we could start seeing shipping systems during the first half of 2019.
