The last few weeks have all been centered around the upcoming GPUs from NVIDIA and some leaks about Radeon ones. This might have taken our minds off of the other half of the story AKA the CPU in the system. However, that has not been the case with current CPU champion AMD. One of the recent leaks about their upcoming mobile CPUs reveals the 5700U. Posted on twitter by TUM_APISAK on twitter. The leak shows the performance of the new APU in the Ashes of The Singularity benchmark.
The leak shows results for the new APU on 1080p low preset. We can see from the results that this is probably an early sample. It looks like the drivers on this thing are also testing versions. What is interesting however is that this CPU has 8 cores and 16 threads. Another important fact about this leak is that it is the first time we see an AMD CPU in a public benchmark with a commercial naming scheme.
The previous leaks from any company included engineering codenames for early CPU samples. It also looks like the new Ryzen 7 packs in an improved version of Radeon Vega graphics which gives slightly better results. Lastly, the chip was coupled with 16 Gigabytes of DDR4 memory in the test.
Talking about the results we can see that the APU scores 1600 points in this benchmark. This gives an idea of performance improvement over the last generation. As compared to the Ryzen 7 4800U it is about 33.3 percent of perfromance improvement. This is great considering it is just a refresh of the ongoing Renoir lineup and hopefully well get to see even better Perfromance from the Ryzen 7 5800U which will come later with the new Cezanne design from AMD.
Ryzen 5000 Series:
Twitter user, MebiuW also shared that the Ryzen 5000 APUs will come in two variants. The first one based one the Cezanne chip design and the second one with the Lucienne chip design. AMD will brand these CPUs with different commercial names. The Ryzen 5000 series chips built on the Lucienne family will be branded as the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U and Ryzen 7 5700U. Meanwhile, the Cezanne family will feature the Ryzen 5 5600U and Ryzen 7 5800U APUs.
Moving on from the names. the two types of processors will vary in the performance department as well. One of them is built o the last-gen Zen 2 architecture design while the other uses their all-new flagship Zen 3 design. This means that Lucienne based laptops and devices will have different pricing models than the ones equipped with Cezanne chips.
The Cezanne chips will bring a lot of perfromance improvements to AMD CPUs. Early leaks suggest up to 8 cores and 16 threads on the new CPU couples with clock speeds of up to 3.9 GHz. According to a recent leak, most of the Ryzen 5000U chips are made for thin and light machines such as Chromebooks. However, that will be confirmed once processors get public. even id we do believe these leaks the processors right now look a little too overpowered for machines like a Chromebook.
That is it for the leak stay tunes for all the news on news AMD and Intel processor releases.
