AMD Ryzen 5 7530U “Barcelo Refresh” CPU with 6 Zen 3 Cores and 12 Vega Computing Units Spotted

A brand new Ryzen 7000 Laptop CPU, the AMD Ryzen 5 7530U, with the Zen 3 architecture under the Barcelo Refresh family, has been spotted. Since this is an update of the Barcelo range, which itself is an update of the Cezanne family, it is definitely based on the Zen 3 cores.

Last month, AMD unveiled its new brand plan for its mobile CPUs under the Ryzen 7000 family. To summarize the article, AMD mobile processors will be labeled with serial numbers 7020, 7030, 7035, 7040 and 7045. These different model numbers are important.

They represent not only the 7000 series CPUs released this year, but also the market segment, the architecture and whether it is considered a lower or higher model within the market segment (which AMD labels as “feature isolation”) and form factor with the corresponding TDP. That said, it’s safe to say what kind of technology will be used for each of AMD’s processors in the future.

The AMD Ryzen 5 7530U CPU will be introduced in this series, targeting the Ryzen 5 market. The architecture behind it is the company’s Zen 3 architecture and will be a lower model with a TDP of 15 to 28W.

The screenshot from SiSoftware shows that the CPU offers 6 cores, 12 threads, 2.0 GHz clock speed and 12 Compute Units (CU) based on the Vega architecture. The official name of the processor is the “AMD Ryzen 5 7530U with Radeon Graphics”, followed by the specifications below:

Before this processor model appeared, AMD had confirmed other low-level market segment processors for its mobile line. Those were the following:

Now, with this fifth addition to the new AMD mobile CPUs, we can see that it will be placed in the middle of the lowest-level mobile processors. Still, it also shows that the new mobile CPU architecture will now consist of the Mendocino, Barcelo and Raphael series.

This news also confirms that the Ryzen 7000 series is AMD’s first to feature three different architectures, with the Ryzen 5000, 3000 and 2000 series CPUs offering only two architectures and Ryzen 6000, 4000 and 1000 with a single architecture.
