According to recent reports, HP, one of the world’s largest PC and hardware manufacturers had just briefly listed a couple of unreleased AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs for mobile devices. And based on the model names of these mysterious processors, we can assume that they should belong to the Barcelo family, the rumoured refresh for Cezanne.
There was a bit of confusion when AMD has revised its Ryzen 4000 (Renoir) APUs and the company did so while discarding the idea of launching the refreshed APUs (Lucienne) under the same Ryzen 4000 family. AMD also opted to use the Ryzen 5000 moniker at a time when it had already released the Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) lineup.
However, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 lineup is now comprised of three different processor series: Lucienne (Zen 2), Cezanne (Zen 3), and Barcelo (Zen 3). Lucienne offers multiple improvements over Renoir, and these improvements include a slightly reworked memory controller, individual core voltage control, and faster-integrated graphics, to name a few.
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Base / Boost Clocks (GHz)||L3 Cache (MB)||TDP (W)|
|Ryzen 7 5825U*||8 / 16||?||16||15|
|Ryzen 7 5800U||8 / 16||1.9 / 4.4||16||15|
|Ryzen 5 5625U*||6 / 12||?||16||15|
|Ryzen 5 5600U||6 / 12||2.3 / 4.2||16||15|
|Ryzen 3 5452U*||4 / 18||?||8||15|
|Ryzen 3 5400U||4 / 18||2.6 / 4.0||8||15|
*Specifications are unconfirmed.
The Ryzen 7 5825U, Ryzen 5 5625U, and Ryzen 3 5452U should be the refreshed versions of the Ryzen 7 5800U, Ryzen 5 5600U, and Ryzen 4 5400U, respectively.
Speaking on L3 cache, AMD’s Ryzen 7 5825U and Ryzen 5 5625U will most likely sport 16MB, while the Ryzen 3 5452U will stick to 8MB. As we might remember, Lucienne was clocked at 1 GHz to 2 GHz higher than Renoir, and we can assume that Barcelo will also come with similar uplifts.
