AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700U has been spotted – The first Zen 3 processor?

Twitter user and prolific leaker @TUM_APISAK has uncovered benchmark results for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7 5700U processor, a mobile APU which features eight cores and sixteen threads. 

At this time, it unknown what Silicon AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700U will use, as this processor is speculated to be either Lucienne-U series processor or a newer Cezanne series processor depending on your sources. Cezanne is AMD’s Zen 3 powered APU silicon, while Lucienne-U is rumoured to be a Renoir (Ryzen Mobile 4000 series) refresh. 

On October 8th, AMD is due to reveal its Ryzen 5000 series of Zen 3 processors. Right now, AMD is reportedly planning to skip the Ryzen 4000 series name for its Zen 3 processors, as this will prevent consumers from confusing these new models with AMD’s popular Ryzen Mobile 4000 series products. 

Aside from the fact that this CPU features eight cores and sixteen threads; very little is known about AMD’s new Ryzen 7 5700U processor. If this processor is part of a Renoir refresh, this processor will likely offer similar specifications to a Ryzen 7 4800U, albeit with different clock speeds and, potentially, refined performance-per-watt characteristics. 

Some sources have speculated that AMD’s Ryzen 5000U series of mobile processors will include both Zen 2 and Zen 3 CPUs, with Zen 3 targeting premium models. In contrast, refreshed Zen 2 processors target more cost-effective notebook designs. AMD’s Lucienne silicon is also reportedly set to become part of some future Google Chromebook models.
