A brand new Ryzen 7000 Laptop CPU, the AMD Ryzen 5 7530U, featuring the Zen 3 architecture under the Barcelo Refresh family has been spotted. Since this is a refresh of the Barcelo lineup which itself is a refresh of the Cezanne family, this is most definitely based on the Zen 3 cores.

AMD Ryzen 5 7530U "Barcelo Refresh" Leak Confirms The Confusing Naming Criteria of Next-Gen Ryzen 7000 CPUs

Last month, AMD revealed its new branding plan for its mobile CPUs under the Ryzen 7000 family. To summarize the article, mobile processors from AMD will be labeled with the series numbers 7020, 7030, 7035, 7040, and 7045. These various model numbers are important.

They represent not only the 7000 series of CPUs to release this year but also the market segment, architecture, and whether it is considered a lower-end or higher-end model within the market segment (which AMD is labeling as "feature isolation") and form factor with the corresponding TDP. That being said, it can safely be stated what kind of technology is being used for each of AMD's processors going forward.

The AMD Ryzen 5 7530U CPU will be introduced in this series focusing on the Ryzen 5 marketplace. The architecture behind it is the company's Zen 3 architecture and will be a lower-level model offering between 15 to 28W TDP.

The screenshot from SiSoftware shows that the CPU offers 6 cores, 12 threads, a clock speed of 2.0 GHz, and 12 Compute Units (CU) based on the Vega architecture. The official name of the processor is the "AMD Ryzen 5 7530U with Radeon Graphics," followed by the specifications listed below:

  • Six cores across twelve threads
  • 512KB L2 cache
  • 16MB L3 cache

Before this processor model appeared, AMD had confirmed other low-level market segment processors for its mobile line. Those were the following:

  • Ryzen 3 7420U
  • Ryzen 5 7520U
  • Ryzen 5 7630U
  • Ryzen 5 7640U

Now, with this fifth addition to the new AMD mobile CPUs, we can see that it will be placed in the middle of the lowest-level mobile processors. Still, it also shows that the new mobile CPU architecture will now consist of Mendocino, Barcelo, and Raphael series.

This news will also confirm that the Ryzen 7000 series is the first from AMD to incorporate three different architectures, with the Ryzen 5000, 3000, and 2000 series CPUs offering only two architectures and Ryzen 6000, 4000, and 1000 utilizing a single architecture.
