With the introduction of the new Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors on October 8, AMD stated that the processors will hit shelves around the world on November 5. AMD, wanting to avoid name confusion with the mobile side, bypassed the 4000 series on the desktop side and immediately switched to the 5000 series. Now, according to the latest leaks, the features of the U series Ryzen 5000 mobile processors have emerged. These processors will mainly be used in Ultrabook models.
Increasing competition with Intel in the U series makes AMD more assertive on the processor side. Intel shows its claim on the graphics power side.
Features of U Series Ryzen 5000 Mobile Processors Revealed
After AMD introduced its new processors to the desktop, its eyes turned to the mobile side. After desktop processors came with Zen 3 architecture, mobile processors were expected to have Zen 3 architecture. In accordance with the information leaked by the account named @ExecuFix on Twitter, it has been revealed that the Ryzen 7 5800U, Ryzen 5 5600U, Ryzen 3 5400U processors will come with the Zen 3 architecture and the rest processors with the Zen 2 architecture.
It is not known why AMD took such a step. It is an interesting strategy to launch half of the processors with the Zen 3 architecture and the other half with the Zen 2 architecture. One of the most striking features of the U series Ryzen 5000 mobile processors is the number of cores and threads. AMD had switched to the familiar core-side layout and used an 8-core / 16-thread design on its flagships. The middle level uses 6 cores / 12 wires, the bottom level uses 4 cores / 8 wires.
On the mobile side, the Ryzen 5000 series, which will grapple with Intel’s 11th generation U-series Tiger Lake processors, gets a significant advantage on the processor side. The flagship of the Tiger Lake series, the i7-1185G7 is a 4-core / 8-thread processor. Intel’s claim on the mobile side is that it is built on the Xth internal graphics unit. One of Intel’s main goals is to produce computers that do not require an external graphics card (such as the NVIDIA MX series) in Ultrabook models.
