ASUS first to list laptop with AMD Ryzen 7000 series
It looks like AMD Ryzen 7000 laptops are just around the corner.
ASUS Turkey now confirms their Zenbook 14 will feature Ryzen 7000 processor with integrated graphics. The company is not confirming the specs of this processor specifically, however thanks to AMD official naming schema, we can be sure it is based on Zen 3 architecture.
The product page mentions both Ryzen 5000 and 7000 series CPUs, possibly because the latter is a refresh of low-power Cezanne chips for Ryzen 7000 series. In this case, the AMD Ryzen 7 7730 is probably an 8-core CPU.
As for the laptop itself, it’s a small 14-inch laptop with 2.5K display with up to 400 nits of brightness. It is marketed for home use with long battery life, lightweight 1.4kg chassis and with a wide range of connectivity options.
ASUS is only confirming that the system features AMD Radeon integrated graphics. Assuming that this is indeed a refresh of Cezanne, then this processor should, once again, feature Vega graphics architecture.
We can now add this CPU to known Ryzen 7000U SKUs, currently featuring 5 models. The 7000U series are confirmed to feature Zen4, Zen3 and Zen2 mixed with Vega, RDNA2 and RDNA3 architecture under a single product lineup.

AMD is likely to announce additional Ryzen 7000U processors around CES 2023 early next year. The company already revealed two Ryzen 7000 CPUs codenamed “Mendocino” based on Zen2 architecture. Those laptops should become available by the end of this year.
