AMD Ryzen 7 5700U appears in Ashes of the Singularity benchmark

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700U is released and we have the first benchmark to ashes of singularity. The model name makes it clear that the chip is from AMD’s new generation of APUs, which replaces the Ryzen 4000 series APUs (codenamed Renoir).

It is still a mystery about which architecture this Ryzen 7 5700U belongs to exactly, but there are two possibilities: Lucienne or Cezanne. AMD’s preference to use the surnames of famous painters as code names for their processors is well known, and sometimes the choice of chip manufacturer could provide clues.

A quick search reveals that Lucienne was an artist, but above all, she was the daughter of the secret love between Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Frédérique Vallet-Bisson. Given the connection between Lucienne and Renoir, it is fairly safe to assume that the AMD code name Lucienne APUs could be an iteration of Renoir. If this is the case, Lucienne should continue to use Zen 2 kernels and Vega graphics. On the other hand, there is a rumor that Cezanne has Zen-3 kernels but still keeps the Vega engine.

According to the presentation, the Ryzen 7 5700U is equipped with 8 cores and 16 threads. At first glance, the name suggests that it is the direct successor of the existing Ryzen 7 4700U, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

Although the Ryzen 7 4700U is actually an 8-core chip, it effectively lacks Multi-Threading (SMT). In contrast, the Ryzen 7 4800U is equipped with an 8-core 16-threads design, so the Ryzen 7 5700U is closer to the Ryzen 7 4800U than the Ryzen 7 4700U.

The Ryzen 5700U with ashes of the singularity was tested in the low 1080p configuration with the Vulkan API. Unfortunately, there is no Ryzen 7 4800U or Ryzen 7 4700U that meets these parameters, so a direct comparison is not possible. We also do not know the processor speed for this test.
