AMD Ryzen 7 5700U and Ryzen 5 5500U turn up as the Zen 2 Lucienne processors in upcoming Asus laptops
The AMD Ryzen 5000 series of mobile processors is coming. Another Asus-related leak, also unearthed by momomo_us and sourced from the German retailer Expert.de, has revealed three new laptops sporting two different Lucienne APUs: The AMD Ryzen 7 5700U and the Ryzen 5 5500U. Although these two parts are from the incoming Ryzen 5000 mobile family, they are based on Zen 2 architecture, thus differentiating from the Zen 3 Cezanne chips such as the Ryzen 7 5800U.
The Asus S533UA-BQ048T comes with the Ryzen 7 5700U chip and has 16 GB RAM and a 1 TB SSD in its 15.6-inch form. According to the tech specs listed in the retailer post, the Ryzen 7 5700U has 8 cores (16 threads), 4 MB cache, and it clocks from 1.8 GHz to 4.25 GHz. It’s possible the data here has been printed incorrectly though, as different leaks have stated a boost clock of 4.3 GHz and L3 cache of 8 MB.
The Asus S732UA-AU059T laptop also features the same Lucienne Zen 2 processor and will offer buyers a 17.3-inch Full HD screen, 16 GB RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. Like the above laptop, the S732UA supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connections. It also relies on the integrated graphics unit of the Ryzen 7 5700U for displaying images.
Lastly, there is the Asus TM420UA-EC004T on show here, which seems to be a 2-in-1 model in the VivoBook Flip 14 line. This device sports the slightly less-powerful Ryzen 5 5500U APU, which is detailed in the retailer listing as having 6 cores (12 threads), 3 MB cache, and 2.1-3.95 GHz clocks. This also deviates from previous leaks, which suggest a 4.0 GHz boost and L3 cache of 8 MB for this SKU.
Unfortunately, no prices or availability dates are listed with these Ryzen 5000 laptops from Asus, but they are clearly targeted at thin and light laptop purchasers who need high performance on-the-go. The TDP range for these two Lucienne processors is 10 W to 25 W.
