The performance data of Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U has leaked out just one day after the first Raven Ridge APU based laptop is listed by HP. This data was posted over 3D Mark database, providing us first look at the kind of horsepower this chip packs underneath the hood.

The two processors under Raven Ridge family who have been leaked today. First is Ryzen 7 2700U and second is Ryzen 5 2500U. Based on “U” branding, both the chips have an ultra low power design. They are based on Zen core architecture while featuring AMD Radeon Vega mobile graphics on the same die.

While we don’t know much about the Ryzen 7 2700U regarding specifications, it is mentioned in the database that the chip clocks in at 2.2 GHz. The turbo range could be hitting 3.8 to 4.0 GHz as that depends on the device itself as far as U series chips are concerned. The other chip, the Ryzen 5 2500 U is well known regarding raw specs.

It comes with four cores and eight threads the supporting clock speeds of 2 GHz base and 3.6 GHz burst. The burst frequency is another name of Boost on AMD Mobility processor.

It has 6MB of onboard cache. Since this is an APU, we are also going to have an integrated GPU in the same package. This time AMD is offering the Radeon Vega M Graphic which replaced GCN fond on older APUs. Considering that both chips have 4C/8T design, we can compare these with Intel’s Kaby Lake Refresh mobility processor which released in August.

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U Benchmarks In Detail

Well, lets see the benchmarks of both chips that were tested in 3DMark 11. The Ryzen 7200U scored 4212 points with 4070 graphics and 6419 physics score. The Ryzen 5 2500U scored 3884 points with 3774 graphics and 6595 physics points.

The Intel chip scores 8278 points in physics test which is a bit ahead of 6418 points on Ryzen 7 2700U. The Intel configuration included NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU which is equivalent to GeForce GT 1030.

But here’s the deal, Intel, and AMD U series chips are mostly systems dependent as laptops with better cooling and design deliver better performance.

“AMD has made a big impact on the market with its Ryzen architecture, and the platform will become even more interesting for compact HTPC builds when the first Ryzen-based APUs are introduced next year,” says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “We’re thus updating two of our award-winning low-profile models to support Ryzen’s the AM4 socket.” via Noctua


The AMD Ryzen mobile APUs are planned for launch this year; we also got details straight from Noctua that the desktop models will be arriving on the AM4 platform next year.
