The AMD Athlon Silver 7120U is a cell processor for affordable laptops of the Mendocino sequence. It integrates two older Zen 2 cores (just like the Ryzen 4000 sequence). The CPU cores clock from 2.4 GHz (base) to three.5 GHz (single-core Turbo) may use a 2 MB L3 cache. you can check also AMD Athlon Gold 7220C and AMD Athlon Gold 7220U.
The Athlon Silver doesn’t assist SMT/Hyperthreading and, due to this fact, can solely work on two threads concurrently. The built-in reminiscence controller helps quick LPDDR5 reminiscence (5500 MHz max.). Compared with the faster Mendocino fashions, just like the Ryzen 5 7520U, the 7120U affords solely two cores, no SMT, much less L3 cache, and decreased clock speeds, reducing CPU efficiency.
The built-in graphics card (Radeon 610M iGPU) uses the trendy RDNA 2 structure; however, solely 2 CUs (128 shaders) and clocks with as much as 1.9 GHz. The CPU efficiency needs to be to the quickest Ryzen dual-core (Ryzen 3 3250U, 2.6 – 3.5 GHz, Zen 1); however, it keeps behind modern quad-core CPUs (in multi-threaded assessments).
The Mendocino sequence is produced in a comparatively trendy 6nm FinFET course at TSMC and may provide an excellent energy effectivity. The Athlon Silver 7120U is rated at 8-15 W TDP and, due to this fact, is appropriately fitted to thin and lightweight laptops.
