AMD may have new depths of Raven Ridge to share with us soon. The evidence for this has just surfaced on Geekbench 4 for Windows, in the form of a laptop listed as powered by a chipset called the "Athlon Gold 3150U". This 2-core, 4-thread apparent APU has posted indifferent scores.

A possible fresh addition to the Athlon line of APUs may have shown up in a new listing on Geekbench (Geekbench 4.3.0 Tryout for Windows x86 to be exact). It is for a so-called "HP HP Laptop 17-ca2xxx" powered by an appropriately-named chipset. This silicon may not exactly set the benchmark alight, but does at least have a novel product name.

This "Athlon Gold 3150U" is listed as a 2-core, 4-thread APU. The rest of its description indicates that it is under the Raven Ridge umbrella; however, with a 3.28GHz max clock (and 2.40GHz base frequency), it may lift even the Athlon 300GE off the bottom end of this general line. It also has "Radeon Graphics", the echelon of which is not given. Vega 3 is the most likely candidate here, however.

The "HP laptop" in which this package is apparently installed, which is listed as having 10GB of DDR4 SDRAM, returned a total of 3559 in single-core scores and 7336 in multi-core terms. However, this leak cannot offer any further information on this potential new Athlon. Judging by its model number, it may be closest to (and a possible successor to) the 300U.
