ASUS’ first AMD Ryzen 7000 series laptop on the list
It looks like AMD Ryzen 7000 laptops are just around the corner.
ASUS Turkey is now confirming that the Zenbook 14 will have a Ryzen 7000 processor with integrated graphics. The company doesn’t specifically confirm the specs of this processor, but thanks to AMD’s official naming scheme, we can be sure that it’s based on the Zen 3 architecture.
The product page mentions both the Ryzen 5000 and 7000 CPUs, as the latter is an update to the lower-performance Sagegen chips for the Ryzen 7000 series. In this case, the AMD Ryzen 7 7730 is probably an eight-core CPU.
The laptop itself is a small 14-inch laptop with a 2.5K screen with a brightness of 400 nits. It is marketed for home use with a long battery life, a light 1.4 kg body and various connectivity options.
ASUS only confirms that the system has integrated AMD Radeon graphics. Assuming this is actually a Cezanne update, this processor should again have the Vega graphics architecture.
We can now add this CPU to the well-known Ryzen 7000U memory, which currently has 5 models. The 7000U series is confirmed to join Zen4, Zen3 and Zen2 with Vega, RDNA2 and RDNA3 architectures within a single product family.

AMD is expected to announce more Ryzen 7000U processors early next year around CES 2023. The company has already unveiled two Ryzen 7000 CPUs, codenamed Mendocino, based on the Zen2 architecture. These laptops are expected to be available later this year.
