Thanks to the UserBenchmark database, the first Ryzen 7000 series processor has been revealed, we are talking about the AMD Ryzen 3 7320Ubut unfortunately this is the opposite of what you would expect from a processor of this series, since does not use the new AMD Zen4 microarchitecture. It’s more, it also does not use AMD Zen3and is that their cores are based on AMD Zen2so using a name like this makes you think you’re buying a modern processor when in fact in the section of its cores it uses the same technology launched two generations ago.
This is because we are dealing with the low cost processor AMD Mendocinowhere we meet like this 4 cores and 8 threads AMD Zen2 processing at base/turbo frequencies of 2.40/4.10GHz. These cores come with integrated graphics AMD RDNA2but once again the disappointment returns, and it is that it only offers 2 UC / 128 stream processors, which considerably limits its performance. For reference, the Steam Deck portable graphics feature 512 stream processors under the same architecture. This results in reference cataloging”terrible“iGPU performance.
AMD Mendocino are designed for low cost laptops ($399 to $699) with extended battery life (up to 10 hours), but of course, handheld console manufacturers started using this chipand knowing that it only has such a number of nuclei break the hype access to a portable console that is both powerful and affordable.
These computers will support up to 32 GB of LPDDR5X RAM in a dual-channel configuration, the GPU allows up to four video outputs via 2x DisplayPort + 2x USB-C, it has 4x PCIe 3.0 lanes for the SSD, the VCN3.0 media engine supports AV1 and VP9 decoding , and it can support configuration up to 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 + 2x USB 3.0 + 1x USB 2.0.
