Lenovo confirms the specifications of the upcoming Ryzen PRO 7 5850U and Ryzen PRO 5 5650U chips for laptops.
AMD Ryzen PRO 7 5850U and Ryzen PRO 5 5650U: Specifications
Lenovo is ready to launch its new ThinkPad business laptops, which will benefit from the Ryzen PRO 7 5850U and Ryzen PRO 5 5650U APU processors.
The manufacturer lists the ThinkPad T14 notebooks with two options, with Ryzen PRO 7 5850U and Ryzen PRO 5 5650U. With that said, let’s see what the specs are that have been revealed.
The Ryzen 5 PRO 5650U is an APU that has 6 cores and 12 threads, reaching a clock speed of 4.2 GHz. The 8-core model with 16 threads, Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U, reaches 4.4 GHz. Both devices are listed with a TDP of 10 to 25W. The GPU has not been confirmed in these specs, so we do not know how many compute units it has.
At the moment, we do not know which architecture this PRO series belongs to, whether it is a Lucienne (Zen 2) or a Cezanne (Zen 3) variant. What is clear is that these PRO variants are not models taken directly from the non-PRO variants.
AMD should be able to position itself strongly in the notebook market, which includes the business segment.
Since the new generation of Ryzen 5000U series processors is split between the ZEN 3 and ZEN 2 architectures, information about the architecture of both is not yet available.
AMD will be hosting a special event later today to officially unveil the Radeon RX 6700 XT. The name of the event is “Where Gaming Begins.” It is unlikely that we will see the new laptops mentioned here and their APU processors at this event, but we will provide you with all the news that will be released at this event.
AMD will host a special event where the company is expected to unveil its Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. The name of the event – “Where the Games Begin” – indicates that the Ryzen PRO mobile series might not be on the event schedule. However, since both HP and Lenovo have already listed laptops with the new processors, it is likely that they will hit the market soon. Let’s wait together for the next one.
