AMD Decides It Has So Many Laptop Processors Coming, They Need New Names

AMD has revealed a new naming scheme for its laptop processors starting in 2023, as next year sees the arrival of a new set of families for Team Red’s mobile chips.

The new system is explained in blog post (opens in new tab), where the cited example chip is the Ryzen 5 7640U. All five characters of the ‘7640U’ mean something here, starting with the first, which denotes the model year, the Ryzen 7 family arriving in 2023 (alongside the Ryzen 7000 desktop chips). AMD notes that Ryzen 8 will arrive in 2024 and Ryzen 9 in 2025.
