But then there was the time gap, as the first Zen CPUs arrived almost a year earlier than the first desktop APU and 10 months before mobile APUs. However, this difference is gradually disappearing, as desktop Ryzen 5000 with Zen 3 will be launched in November and APU Ryzen 5000 with Zen 3 is also expected in early spring.
It could also be said that it would be more appropriate for AMD to start marketing the mobile APU Ryzen sooner, given that laptops have long been selling much more than desktops. This is true, but we must not forget that we already have the second desktop generation, which consists of small chipsets and next to them I / O chips formed by the old process, while APUs use much larger monoliths produced by a modern process.
From this point of view, it makes sense to try to first market products with smaller chips, which promise higher overall yields, and then try to get bigger ones, especially for APUs, which are still seen as cheap solutions, especially on desktops. And probably that’s why we haven’t seen the new Renoir desktop chips in retail yet, and the question is when it will arrive (AMD promised after all).
However, in order for AMD not only to keep its chips tidy, but to keep its balance with chaos, we should also expect weaker Ryzen 5000U models, which will not belong to Cezanne, but to Lucienne. And that Lucienne Bisson was Renoir’s daughter, then these processors will still carry the Zen 2 architecture from the Renoir generation and should logically be quad-core models.
