Those talks are becoming louder with a leak suggesting AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series could pair Zen 3 CPU cores with RDNA 2-based GPU cores, which would be a big upgrade on both fronts. Let’s break it down.

When dealing with codenames and models numbers, things can get confusing because AMD’s mobile and desktop CPU lines don’t perfectly align. Here’s a cheat sheet:

  • Zen 3 mobile CPUs—Ryzen 5000 series*
  • Zen 3 desktop CPUs—Ryzen 4000 series*
  • Zen 2 mobile CPUs—Ryzen 4000 series
  • Zen 2 desktop CPUs—Ryzen 3000 series
  • Zen+ mobile CPUs—Ryzen 3000 series
  • Zen+ desktop CPUs—Ryzen 2000 series
  • Zen 1 mobile CPUs—Ryzen 2000 series
  • Zen 1 desktop CPUs—Ryzen 1000 series
