Earlier this year, we got our first glimpse at the upcoming Ryzen 7 5700G APU. AMD's APUs are typically found in OEM systems, and are sought after because they include integrated graphics (something that mainline Ryzen processors do not include). Now, the Ryzen 7 5700G is showing up in an unlikely place: eBay. That's right; AMD hasn't even announced its Ryzen 5000G APUs yet, but some engineering samples have found their way to the popular online marketplace. Seller hugohk, who is located in Hong Kong, apparently had 9 of these processors available for sale, and has one left at the moment.  As we previously reported, the Ryzen 7 5700G is a Cezanne-based Zen 3 processor with...

During her CES2021 keynote address, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, along with a handful of partners, revealed the AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. At that event, the overall line-up and a few details were disclosed, and over the course of CES many design wins were announced by multiple OEMs as well. Shortly thereafter though, AMD hosted a deep-dive press briefing and discussed a number of additional details regarding the Ryzen 5000 Mobile Series. And today, we’re able to disclose to you more details of AMD's robust new laptop platform, but before we do, a bit of a recap is probably in order... Ryzen 5000 Series Zen 3 Mobile Processor Line-Up Recap There is a wide array of new processors in... Read more...
It is safe to assume AMD will be unveiling a new generation of mobile processors, in part because it would be silly (and very bad for business) if that did not happen. What we are waiting on, however, are the details. Official details will have to wait, but in lieu of an actual announcement, it appears an online retailer has spilled the beans on several of AMD's upcoming Ryzen 5000H an Ryzen 5000U processors for laptops. The Ryzen 5000 series already exists on the desktop, and as we saw in our Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X review, AMD's Zen 3 architecture dominates. And so we are eager to see Zen 3 ported over to mobile. There is a potential 'gotcha' however, that being a mix of Zen 2 and Zen 3 within... Read more...
There is an interesting development in the land of leaks, which pertains to AMD's upcoming mobile Ryzen 5000 series. I emphasize "mobile" because AMD has already launched its desktop Ryzen 5000 series, based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture. Zen 3 will eventually find its way to laptops, and over at Geekbench (where else?), there is a new entry for a never-before referenced Ryzen 9 5900HX SKU. What makes this latest entry so curious is not the fact that it is an unreleased mobile part—there have been several leaks of those already. However, the "HX" suffix is new one to us, and one plausible explanation is that it refers to an unlocked multiplier, for enthusiast and gaming laptops with overclocking... Read more...
One of AMD's upcoming mobile CPUs based on its Zen 3 architecture has made a benchmark appearance at Geekbench, that being the unannounced Ryzen 7 5800H. According to past leaks, this is one of several mobile CPUs on tap from AMD, which will be split between Zen 3 (Cezanne) and Zen 2 (Lucienne) models, with this particular SKU aimed at higher performing laptops. Up to this point, the majority of mobile CPU leaks have centered on AMD's lower power Ryzen 5000U series, and specifically the following models... Ryzen 7 5800U (Zen 3): 8 cores/16 threads, 2GHz to 4.4GHz, 16MB L3, 8 Vega CUs at 2GHz Ryzen 7 5700U (Zen 2): 8 cores/16 threads, 1.8GHz to 4.3GHz, 8MB L3, 8 Vega CUs at 1.9GHz Ryzen 5 5600U...

Eventually AMD will get around to porting its Zen 3 architecture over to its mobile CPUs. Exactly when remains to be seen, but perhaps sooner than later, if the handful of leaks we have covered are any indication. Zen 3 is still brand new, but what are purported to be AMD's unannounced Ryzen 5000 series of mobile CPUs have shown up in different places. Most recently, a supposed Ryzen 7 5800U has found its way to Geekbench. According to past leaks, the Ryzen 7 5800U is one of half a dozen upcoming Ryzen 5000 series mobile CPUs on tap from AMD. Interestingly, rumor has it that not all of them will be based on Zen 3—the lineup is said to be a mix of Zen 2 and Zen 3. That makes things needlessly... Read more...
AMD started off 2020 with a bang when it released its Ryzen 4000 processors for laptops, and garnered many design wins. Based on the potent Zen 2 processor architecture, Ryzen 4000 processors are available in up to 8-core/16-thread configurations and with up an 8-core Radeon Vega-based graphics core. Now we’re getting some early insight into the first Ryzen 5000 APUs that will find their way into 2021 laptops. Given that strong response that AMD has already received with Ryzen 4000, Ryzen 5000 could be an even bigger hit for AMD. A newly discovered SiSoftware database entry makes reference to a “Celadon CZN Renoir” platform, which in actually is the next-generation... Read more...
AMD has been killing it on the CPU side with its evolving Zen architecture, and based on a barrage of past leaks and rumors, Zen 3 will keep the momentum going. On the graphics side, AMD has more work to do. It's upcoming RDNA 2 architecture has the potential to shake things up, but it's too early to tell. And with regards to its APUs, well, those are still stuck on Vega, and it looks like that will be the case again when Zen 3 arrives. Of course, AMD no longer refers to these chips as APUs, or accelerated processing units, but Ryzen processors with Radeon graphics. Call them whatever you want, the point is, they combine AMD's Ryzen CPU cores with Radeon GPU cores, but are not necessarily the... Read more...
It seems as it was just yesterday when AMD launched its Ryzen 4000 APUs based on Zen 2 "Renoir" architecture. The processors are giving Intel a real run for the money with respect to performance, and as we've seen with the ASUS ROG Strix Hero III, Ryzen 4000 processors are incredibly power efficient as well. AMD may have pushed Ryzen 4000 APUs out the door, but it's already far along with its next-generation Ryzen 5000 APUs that will be based on Zen 3 "Cezanne" microarchitecture. Although somewhat confusing, the first consumer-centric Zen 3 processors are coming later this year under Ryzen 4000 branding (desktop), with Ryzen 5000 mobile Zen 3 processors likely coming next year....
