Following up with the launch of Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the Zen 3 architecture, AMD is looking to release the 5000 Series APUs for laptops sometime in 2021. Some of these are made around the older Zen 2 architecture with slightly slower Vega cores which are codenamed “Lucienne”. Today, we’re going to discuss the specs of these processors.

The Lucienne processors are basically refreshes of the 4000 Series Renoir APUs. They hold the same core counts as their predecessors but they offer Simultaneous Multithreading now, resulting in better multi-core performance. Along with that, these processors have improved base and boost clocks and the integrated graphics has been improved too.

Ryzen 3 5300U

The successor to the Ryzen 3 4300U, this processor has 4 Cores and 8 Threads, along with a base clock of 2.6Ghz which is 100Mhz less than that of the 4300U. But, it has a boost clock of 3.85 GHz, besting the 4300U by 150Mhz. It also has 1 additional Vega Compute Unit(CU) with a total of 6 CUs which runs at 1.5Ghz, 100Mhz more than what was in the 4300U. This processor has 4 Megabytes of L3 cache and a TDP of 10-25 Watts, same as the 4300U

Ryzen 5 5500U

This processor succeeds the Ryzen 5 4500U, with 6 cores and 12 threads running at a 2.1Ghz base clock which shows an increase of 200Mhz. The boost clock stays the same as before at 4Ghz. This processor also has improves integrated graphics with 7 CUs at 1.8Ghz, compared to the 6 CUs at 1.5Ghz of the 4500U, this looks like a great improvement. This processor has 8 Megabytes of L3 cache and a TDP of 10-25 Watts which is the same as before.

Ryzen 7 5700U

Succeeding the Ryzen 7 4700U, this is the best processor of the Lucienne lineup, with 8 Cores and 16 Threads. This processor sees an improvement of 200Mhz with the base and boost clock, having a base clock of 1.8Ghz and the boost clock being a solid 4.3Ghz. It has 1 more Vega CU with a 300Mhz increase in clock speed, totaling 8 CU @ 1.9Ghz. This processor, like the other ones in this lineup, has identical L3 cache and TDP od 8 Megabytes and 10-25 Watts respectively.

What kind Of Performance Can You Expect From These Processors?

Though we haven’t seen any benchmarks of these processors yet, we have previously seen the 4000 Series APUs perform really well while keeping great temps. Those processors did really well compared to their intel counterparts and the tech community had praised these processors too. Since the 5000 Series processors are based on the same architecture, we can expect these processors to have the same cost and temperature advantage as its predecessors. Since these processors have higher clock speeds and improved graphics, these are sure to provide higher fps in all types of video-games and perform better with productivity workloads too.
