Geekbench has confirmed that LG has been developing an AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir laptop. Called the 15U40N, three results have been published on the popular benchmarking website since yesterday. According to Geekbench, LG will offer the 15U40N with at least a choice between the Ryzen 3 4300U and Ryzen 7 4700U. Both processors are manufactured on a 7 nm process and are based on AMD's Zen 2 architecture. Neither the Ryzen 3 4300U or Ryzen 7 4700U supports Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), which means that they can only execute one thread per each of their four and eight cores, respectively. AMD sets the TDP of both APUs to 15 W by default, but they can be configured from 10 to 25 W by the laptop manufacturer. The Ryzen 3 4300U and Ryzen 7 4700U have different integrated GPUs, too.
The listings do not provide any information about the SSDs with which these models have been paired, though. However, they do confirm that there will be a choice between 8 GB or 16 GB of DDR4 RAM. Additionally, the RAM is dual-channel and operates at 3,200 MHz.
We are unsure where the 15U40N will fit within LG's current product stack. LG appends Z in the model numbers of its gram laptop series, so it would seem unlikely that the 15U40N is a Renoir version of the new LG gram 15. @_rogame has suggested that the 15U40N could be the successor to the 15U490. Powered by Ryzen Zen processors, the 15U490 appears to be only available in South Korea. So, if the 15U40N is a successor to the 15U490, then we may not see LG releasing it in multiple markets as it does with its gram series.
