AMD Ryzen 7540U with 6 Zen4 cores
The company is preparing low-power Phoenix APU series.
AMD might have omitted the 7040U series in their initial laptop rollout, but such series are undoubtedly coming. At least two instances of such APUs have now been discovered, confirming that there is a new integrated GPU planned as well.
A product that is shown as 100-000000966-50_Y or AMD Ryzen 5 7540U is supposedly a 6 core and 12 thread processor. This processor would utilize AMD’s newest Zen4 microarchitecture. Strongly implying this is a low-power (U-series) Phoenix APU. It should also feature RDNA3 iGPU, which is listed as Radeon 740M, so an even more cut-down version of 780M/760M.
Such APU would be used by at least two systems: Lenovo LNVNB161216 and ASUS ROG Flow X13, as shown by two benchmark result aggregators. The fact that the Bepco benchmark suite correctly reads the product name suggests that this is a soon-to-be-released product. The ASUS ROG Flow X13 test was performed a month earlier, which is why AMD OPN code is shown instead.
The Ryzen 7540U joins ranks with 7840U and 7640U APUs, which had already been seen previously. The Radeon 740M graphics is thus far the lowest tier in the RDNA3 iGPU series, but the exact GPU configuration is unknown.
AMD does not confirm when the 7040U series are to be released, but the company did clarify that Phoenix H/HS SKUs will be released this month after a short delay.
