AMD processors for portable devices will have a new name starting in 2023. The company’s slides talk about at least three next generations – each accounts for one year. At first glance, the system looks confusing, but it has a clear structure.

The first digit indicates the year the processor was manufactured. Chips in 2023 are designated by the number 7, then plus one in ascending order. The second designates the family – Athlon, Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 and so on. Obviously, there will be more families – each has two digits.
Next comes the processor architecture: 1 means Zen1, 2 means Zen2, etc. The third digit makes it possible to always correctly determine the chip architecture, which was not always possible to do before. In fourth place is the architecture version. The first revision, say, Zen 5, will be designated 0, then the number will increase when changes are made to the architecture. It is also possible that revision 1, 2 or more chips will be the first to reach users. The letter suffix at the end stands for TDP: 55W is HX, 35W is HS, 15-28W is U (or C in the case of a Chromebook), and 9W is the lowercase e.
AMD also confirmed the names of some future processors. Ryzen 9 7945HX with Zen 4 architecture with 55W power consumption will be released next year. Processors of previous architectures will be released as energy efficient chips with a TDP of 15-28W. As an example, the slide shows the Ryzen 3 7420U, based on Zen 2.
AMD now makes 28% of all x86 processors and is showing its biggest growth in history amid a general decline in the PC market
