Despite the delays, AMD continues to work on new models of Phoenix APUs. Following the Ryzen 7040HS chips, which are designed for thin, but at the same time productive laptops, the Ryzen 7040U line will come out with a lower TDP level. The other day, tests of one of the older Phoenix-U APUs appeared in the Cinebench R23 benchmark.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7840U features eight Zen 4 cores, a 3rd generation RDNA graphics module, and is manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm technology. The nominal frequency of the processor is 3.3 GHz (the boost mode is not specified), and the TDP level can be adjusted in the range from 15 to 28 watts. The novelty was tested as part of a Lenovo laptop.
The Ryzen 7 7840U completed the Cinebench R23 benchmark with a score of 14,825 points. This is more than the 45-watt Ryzen 9 6980HX (14.7 thousand points), the top mobile processor with the Zen 3+ architecture, is gaining. Laptops with AMD Ryzen 7040U processors should go on sale approximately in the second or third quarter.
