AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series desktop CPU lineup has barely been out for a couple of months, and already hints of a next-gen Zen4 for laptops has made its way online. The CPU in question, by the way, is an AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX and supposedly, it’s packing a whopping 12-cores.
Details of the alleged Ryzen 9 7845HX, were found over at the Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) database. More specifically, it “confirms” not just the CPU’s designation, but that it is also a unit with a 12-core, 24-threads configuration. Oh, and it also appears to be based on AMD’s “Dragon Range” Zen4 architecture.
For those of you that are wondering about the unconventional naming scheme of the 7845HX, here’s a quick primer: back in the middle of the year, AMD released a somewhat detailed table, explaining the way it will name its Ryzen mobile processors, moving forward. The first digit denotes the portfolio year or the year it launched or will launch; the second digit indicates the market segment of the CPU and this ranges from its barebones Athlon Silver, all the way up to its enthusiast-grade Ryzen 9. In this case, the “8” here denotes that the CPU is either a Ryzen 7 or 9.
Moving on, the third digit denotes the architecture is based on. In the case of this 7845HX, that would be the Zen4 architecture. The last digit indicates whether the SKU is a lower or higher model: a “5” means that the CPU either falls under the “Dragon Range” or “Phoenix”categories, while a “0” means that the CPU runs at default settings.
Lastly, the alphabets at the end of the numbers serve to inform the users of its form factor. The tech savvy among you will understand that HX denotes the 7845HX is an extreme gaming mobile CPU, designed to operate at 55W or higher.
Getting back to the 7845HX and its details, the AOTS benchmark shows that the mobile CPU was paired with 8GB RAM, although it is unclear whether or not that memory kit is DDR4 or DDR5. Having said that, it seems likely the latter was being used, given AMD’s mandate to move forward with the new standard. Frankly, we’re actually more surprised that AOTS is still even in play, given how old the title is and the parametres the CPU was made to run on.
