Will AMD Ryzen 7000 offer up to 16 Zen 4 cores on notebooks?

The chips based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture are still quite far away, but, as usual, some alleged information concerning the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs begins to appear on the network. Recently, on the occasion of a commemorative video of the first five years of Zen architecture, AMD, through the words of John Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing, confirmed that in 2022 the company will replace the socket AM4 with a "new platform" (AM5 was not named directly) that will incorporate DDR5 support (as well as PCI Express 5.0) and the first chips it will welcome will be based on Zen 4.

That is not what the guy said …

A few days ago, as reported by colleagues from Wccftech, the leakers NNNiceMing and Greymon55 talked about future processors mobile, stating that Zen 4 will not only be used for Phoenix APUs, which will target both low-power and high-end products, but there will also be room for a high-end segment with the Raphael-H that will be able to offer CPUs up to 16-core. Currently, we remind you, AMD supplies mobile processors equipped with a maximum of eight cores (sixteen threads), so doubling this number will allow the creation of very powerful portable devices with a processing capacity more than doubled given the inevitable improvements expected at the architectural level. br>

We point out that we will hopefully not see these chips on the market before the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023 and therefore they will clash with the next Raptor Lake-H from competitor Intel. Obviously, at the moment this information should be taken as simple rumors waiting for an official presentation for which we will inevitably have to wait several more months. Last week we also told you about a mysterious AMD mining card that is supposed to employ the Navi 12 GPU, previously used in the Radeon Pro 5600M produced for Apple. For more details, we refer you to our previous dedicated article.
