A processor from AMD's upcoming Ryzen chips has reportedly leaked thanks to a notebook making a stop at the BAPCO website. Going by the codename "AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000560-40_Y", the processor appears to have 8 cores and 16 threads. It was paired with a 4800 MHz memory, giving rise to speculation that the processor was DDR5 capable.

If rumors are any indication, AMD is gearing up to release new Ryzen chips with DDR5 support soon. The latest information dump comes from serial leaker BenchLeaks who noticed that an AMD chip had made a stop at the BAPCo website. BAPCo’s CrossMark benchmark is quite famous for testing the performance of machines, so it is no wonder that unannounced devices end up in their database.

The chip codenamed “AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000560-40_Y” has 8 cores and 16 threads. Upon examining the codename, the chip looks to have a 4 GHz base clock speed. Furthermore, because the chip was powering an ASUS M3402RA computer with 16 GB of 4800 MHz system memory, we can guess from the memory’s clock speed that it is DDR5. In other words, this new chip is either from the AMD “Raphael” Zen 4 processor family or it is an AMD “Rembrandt” Zen 3+ chip as both the Zen 4 and Zen 3+ architectures reportedly support DDR5.

Moving on, the CrossMark score of 1426 puts the AMD chip at level footing with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and Intel Core i7-10870H. The low score might be an indication that the processor is rocking Zen 3+ architecture. Ryzen 6000 (Zen 3+) mobile APUs are reportedly similar in CPU performance to the Ryzen 5000 series mobile chips. For the Ryzen 6000 chips, the real boost in performance will allegedly come from the RDNA 2 integrated GPUs.
