Leaked characteristics of Ryzen 5000 series hybrid mobile processors, as is often the case, organized not too prudent foreign retailers preparing to release new laptop models based on them.
As we already know from their previous leaks, the Ryzen 5000 APU family will be represented by two subfamilies: one-half of the “stones” based on the current Zen 3 microarchitecture, which debuted in the Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) CPU for desktop PCs, will represent the Cezanne “home,” and the second based on Zen2 architecture – Lucienne. The common feature of both subfamilies will be the improved Radeon Vega graphics core.
AMD is preparing at least four high-performance chips of the Cezanne-H family and three energy-efficient ones in the Cezanne-U and Lucienne-U series. The first family is intended for gaming laptops and mobile workstations – Cezanne-H chips will compete with the upcoming 11th generation Intel (Tiger Lake-H)
AMD Cezanne-H family is designed for use in gaming laptops, where it will compete with Intel 10th Gen Core chips (Comet Lake-H), and in the future, 11th Gen Core chips (Tiger lake-h). The Cezanne-H family will include models with several cores from 6 to 8 pieces, active SMT technology, an integrated GPU with 8 Radeon Vega computational units, 16 MB of L3 cache, and a TDP of 35 or 45 W.
Preliminary specifications for the high-performance Ryzen 5000 Series processors compared to the Ryzen 4000 Series are shown in the table below.

The characteristics of the energy-efficient AMD Cezanne-U and Lucienne-U chips for ultra-thin notebook models appeared on the network a few months ago. Now, these data have been confirmed by retailers. And if the Cezanne-U series stands out with new Zen3 processor cores, then the Lucienne-U, in fact, is an updated Ryzen 4000 series (Renoir) with active SMT technology and a configurable TDP within 15-25 watts.
Preliminary specifications for the Ryzen 5000 Series energy-efficient processors compared to the Ryzen 4000 Series are shown in the table below.

At the same time, authoritative insiders talked about the upcoming expansion of the Navi 2X 3D accelerators range with the 2nd generation RDNA architecture. In the desktop segment, we expect the Radeon RX 6700 (XT) based on GPU Navi 22 different configurations and the more affordable Radeon RX 5500. reportedly entry-level 7nm Navi 23 GPU will replace the Navi 14 GPU (Radeon RX 5500 (XT) and Radeon RX 5500M). Potential Radeon RX 6500 4- or 8GB GDDR6 video buffer with 128-bit bus, PCI Express 4.0 x8 interface, up to five video outputs, and support for DirectX12.1, Vulkan 1.1, OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 2.2, and AMD Liquid VR.
AMD will also bring graphics adapters to the market for the foreseeable future Radeon RX 6000M based on GPU Navi 22, Navi 23, and Navi 24 for gaming laptops that will compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 lineup. The mobile flagship of the “red” will receive a GPU Navi 22 with an area of about 334.5 mm² with 2560 stream processors and a 192-bit memory bus … It is credited with TGP (Total Graphics Power) up to 146W. At the same time, Navi 23 will be the main card with TGP (Total Graphics Power) 65, 80, and 90 W, while Navi 24 is intended for entry-level cards with TGP 25 to 50 W.
The Ryzen 5000 Series APU and new Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards are expected to be officially announced at AMD’s upcoming online event scheduled for January 12, 2021.
