AMD Releases Mendocino APUs: Zen 2-Based Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series with RDNA 2 Graphics

While the main focus this month has been on AMD’s upcoming launch of its Ryzen 7000 desktop processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, AMD is also launching its 7020 series of processors designed for mobile. range, named Mendocino. It launched four new mobile SKUs, including two Ryzen series models and two Athlon variants, all based on its Zen 2 architecture.

As we learned in May, AMD’s Zen 2-based “Mendocino” APUs are designed as part of its low-end mobile processor stack for laptop and lightweight laptop solutions. entry level. The affordable APUs feature up to 4 Zen 2 CPU cores, along with AMD’s integrated Radeon 610M graphics, all with a maximum TDP of 15W.

Focusing specifically on the AMD 7020 series APUs announced today, the best SKU is the Ryzen 5 7520U. Using AMD’s new Ryzen Mobile processor numbering system, the 7520U is a 2023 model year chip under the Ryzen 5 series banner using its Zen 2 core architecture. The U suffix technically stands for 15-28W, but in this case, AMD has confirmed that all current chips have a maximum TDP of 15W.

The AMD Ryzen 5 7520U boasts a base frequency of 2.8 GHz across its four cores, with a 1T boost frequency of up to 4.3 GHz. It also includes a total of 6MB of cache, split between 4MB of L3 and 2MB of L2 (512KB per core).

Athlon Silver 7120U 2C/4T 2.4GHz 3.5GHz 1 MB L2 + 2 MB L3 Radeon 610M 15W

At the bottom of the stack is the Ryzen 3 7320U, which has four cores and eight threads but a base clock speed of 2.4 GHz and a single-core boost frequency of up to 4.1 GHz. . Like the Ryzen 5 7520U, it also benefits from a combined 6MB cache on its L2/L3 cache structure.

As for Athlon-branded 7020 series chips, the Athlon Gold 7220U offers two cores and four threads, with a base frequency of 2.4 GHz, a single-core boost frequency of up to 3.7 GHz and 5 MB shared L2/L3 cache. The Athlon Silver 7120U is pretty much the Athlon Gold 7220U, but it has a slightly lower 1T boost frequency of 3.5 GHz and half the L3 cache (for a total of 3 MB instead of 5 MB)

AMD Radeon 610M with dual graphics cores for entry-level performance

All AMD Zen 2 Ryzen and Athlon 7020 series announced today will support up to 32GB of LPDDR5 memory in a dual-channel (64-bit) configuration and feature dual graphics/CU cores based on its RNDA 2 technology, which ‘AMD is branded Radeon 610M integrated graphics chip. The four mobile APUs will also include a TDP of up to 15W.

As of this writing, AMD has not revealed specific pricing outside of an overall price range for laptops between $399 and $699. However, it has announced that its AMD Ryzen 7020 series ecosystem partners are Acer, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft, with laptops featuring these chips expected to start appearing on store shelves in the fourth quarter. 2022.
