Geekbench lists AMD Ryzen 5 3550H, 3550U APUs

If Geekbench is atleast useful for one thing, its for listing upcoming CPU/ GPU information conveniently run by people who ‘accidentally’ leak information. This Geekbench listing confirms the existence of AMD’s upcoming APUs- Ryzen 5 3550H and the Ryzen 5 3550U. According to the listed information, the Ryzen 5 5 3550U is the lower TDP rated unit. Both the 3550H and 3550U use Radeon Vega 8 and Vega 9 graphics. The specifications from Geekbench are as follows:

Specification Listing

Cores / Threads Base Clock Boost Clock L3 Cache TDP Graphics Compute Units Shaders Graphics Frequency
AMD Ryzen 5 3550H 4 / 8 2.1 GHz 3.7 GHz 4MB 35W Radeon Vega 8 8 512 1,200 MHz
AMD Ryzen 5 3550U* 4 / 8 2.1 GHz 3.69 GHz 4MB 15W Radeon Vega 9 9 576 1,300 MHz

Difference between the two variations

AMD APU variations have the U and the H series. The U series denotes energy-efficient APUs, therefore Ryzen 5 3550U having a rated TDP of 15-watts. As a result, this is a quad core-eight thread APU clocked at 2.1/ 3.69 GHz base/boost clock with Vega 9 on-chip graphics with 576 shaders, according to Toms’ Hardware.

The H series is more on-chip gaming-centric APU, though it uses Vega 8 on-chip graphics with 512 shaders. This is also a four-core eight-thread APU with 2.1 GHz/ 3.7 GHz base/ boost clock speed.

Preparing for Intel Ice Lake CPUs??

It is assumed that AMD is planning this launch well ahead of Intel Ice Lake CPUs. There was also development from Intel in its upcoming NUCs with discrete graphics. If AMD releases these before Intel outs Ice Lake, they can get a 1up advantage within its niche market.
