On the desktop, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 family is notable. These CPUs surpass anything Intel has to offer in the single-threaded performance division. Not only that, they also bring the multithreaded damage to loads that can handle it. All in all, they offer amazing performance at attractive prices. The only thing missing is Ryzen 5000 in notebooks. Now some Ryzen mobile machines are starting to peek their heads out of hiding.
The newest, not yet announced CPUs from AMD will apparently find their way into the Aspire 5 notebook family from Acer. According to this listing on Amazon’s Italian website, the Aspire A515-45-R2J2 notebook has a Ryzen 7 5700U, 8 GB DDR4 memory and a 512 GB SSD in a 15.6-inch case with a 1080p display. That sounds like an awful lot, but the price on the Amazon list was only 779 euros. This list was pulled along with all the photos of the machine, but we managed to get hold of a few.
The problem with Ryzen 5000 in mobile systems, however, is that the family consists of two different chips: Cezanne, based on the new Zen 3 architecture, and Lucienne, which emerges from Zen 2 like AMD’s Ryzen 4000 family of notebook CPUs . At least it does if the recent leaks turn out to be true. The Ryzen 7 5700U falls into the second category, Lucienne, which means it is a Zen 2 APU. While this may be a bit of a disappointment, Zen 2 didn’t magically slow down overnight, so the Aspire 5 A515 should still be a pretty fast laptop when it released. It’s just missing the latest technology from AMD, and that means consumers need to do a little research to make sure they know what they are buying.
The rest of the system specs are pretty solid considering Amazon’s price tag. Acer seems to claim that the Aspire 5 A515 will work for 10 hours on a single charge and has 802.11ax Wi-Fi. In addition to the 8-core processor, 8GB of memory is sufficient for most notebook use cases, but hopefully it can be upgraded by the user. On the other hand, 512 GB of SSD storage space is quite generous at this price point. The 1.9kg weight mentioned in the listing is only 4.1 pounds so it should be pretty light too. The port layout seems quite generous, with multiple Type-A ports and a single Type-C spot and HDMI on the left.
While the news about a Ryzen 7 5700U notebook is exciting as it means AMD should unveil it soon, it’s a hollow victory without a Zen 3 processor. As I said, Ryzen 5000 is a great value on the desktop and we’re excited to see what AMD and its partners have invented for the mobile front. Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs appeared to be in short supply at launch yesterday, so hopefully AMD can keep up with demand. As that mobile launch gets closer, we are sure to have more details to pass on.
