AMD Ryzen 7 7730U “Bercelo-R” appears on PassMark

Confusing Ryzen 7000 naming continues to be confusing. 

AMD Ryzen 7000 mobile series will be split between five performance segments.  It wouldn’t be that much of a problem if not for the fact that Ryzen mobile 7000 series are also using four different microarchitectures. In fact, under a disguise of 7000 series customers will also find 4 different fabrication nodes and three graphics architecture.

The Ryzen 7 7730U is an 8-core CPU based on Zen3 architecture codenamed “Barcelo-R”. It is essentially a refresh of existing Ryzen 7 5825U processor, used by lightweight laptops and even some gaming consoles. With the reintroduction of these CPUs, AMD also extended the life of Vega GPU architecture, hopefully for the last time before retiring it completely.

This processor has now been spotted over PassMark site and compared to Ryzen 7 5825U by Notebookcheck. The reason for this comparison is simple, both use Zen3 architecture, both have the same CPU configuration, and they even use the same 2.0/4.5 GHz clocks. AMD had not really gone into detail to explain the difference between Barcelo-R and the original Barcelo APUs, but the latter was already a refresh of Cezanne with small changes to the voltage, frequencies and power specs.

The processor ended up 4% faster in single threaded test and 3% in multi-core. However, this is based only on two samples whereas the 5825U score involves 255 tests, so this is well within the margin of error.

Such comparison shows that despite AMD’s best intention to simplify the product stack, it ended up being a lot more confusing. Furthermore, people may choose Ryzen 7 7730 over 5825U simply because it sounds newer, but does not necessarily provide significant changes underneath.
