AMD a while back announced the new naming scheme for its mobile CPUs. You can read more about that here. Today, momomo_us spotted the Ryzen 5 7530U based on the Zen3/Zen3+ architecture from the Ryzen 7000 family. Similarly, as highlighted by Videocardz, the Ryzen 7000 series is the first to support 4 different architectures (Zen2, Zen3, Zen3+ and Zen4).
The Ryzen 5 7530U
Over at sisoftware, we can find the official specifications for the Ryzen 5 7530U processor. This CPU is packed with 12CUs possibly based on the RDNA2 architecture. Similarly, the 7530U arrives with a 6 core / 12 thread configuration clocked at 2.0GHz.
If we apply AMD’s own naming scheme, then we can obtain more information regarding this CPU.
The Ryzen 5 7530U is planned for release in 2023 as is showcased by the first character ‘7’. This SKU belongs to the Ryzen 5 family containing a ‘5’ in the second place and is based on the Zen3/Zen3+ architecture (3rd number). Within its lineup, the 7530U is a low-end variant and is targeted at Premium Ultrathin laptops having a TDP of 15–28W.
- The 1st number determines the year in which the CPU was released. For example, the 7 in ‘7640U’ means that the CPU is from 2023 (See picture below).
- The 2nd number is for the market segment. For example, the 6 in ‘7650U’ means that the SKU is from the Ryzen 5 series. Any CPU below the x3xx mark will come under the umbrella of the Athlon series.
- The 3rd number tells users about the architecture. For example, the 4 in ‘7640U’ shows that the CPU features the Zen4 architecture.
- The 4th number can be one of two possibilities, it will either be a 0 or a 5. For example, the 0 in ‘7640U’ shows that the CPU is a lower-end model within its lineup. Bear in mind, this number makes a difference in specific cases only.
- The character at the end specifies the form factor along with the TDP. For example, the U in ‘7640U’ means that the CPU will power Premium Ultra-thin laptops.
