As the Intel Elder Lake family of processors has recently been expanded to include budget-friendly options, it’s no stretch to believe that the new Renoir-X lineup could become a direct competitor to the new Intel CPUs.

The AMD Renoir-X is going to be part of the Ryzen 4000 family. Rumored to use the 7nm Zen 2 Core architecture, the lineup is likely to feature the same specifications as the Ryzen 4000G APU. However, the new Renoir-X will have no integrated graphics, which means it will not have an APU and may simply be referred to as a CPU.

The latest leak comes from Enthusiast Citizen, who has posted the specifications of the new AMD lineup bilibili, a Chinese social media website. Going by that information, it looks like the Renoir-X is going to be compatible with the A320 platform and other entry-level motherboards, which should make it quite accessible to most users.

Enthusiast Citizen describes three new Ryzen 4000 CPUs and talks about their specifications. The lineup is said to include the Ryzen 7 4700 with eight cores, 16 threads, 3MB L2 cache, and 8MB L3 cache. It is the most powerful CPU in the lineup with a base clock speed of 3.6GHz that can be expanded up to 4.4GHz.

The Renoir-X family also includes the Ryzen 5 4600 with six cores and 12 threads, clock speeds ranging from 3.6GHz to 4.1GHz, and 3MB of L2 cache (L3 cache is the same as the Ryzen 7). The budget Ryzen 3 4300 with four cores, eight threads, a 2MB L2 cache, and a 4MB L3 cache. This CPU has a higher base clock speed than the Ryzen 5, which is rated at 3.8GHz, but can only be overclocked to 4.0GHz.

as mentioned by wccftech, the enthusiast citizen has been a reliable leaker when it comes to AMD, but it’s important to take these specifications with a little skepticism. Until AMD itself confirms that these new processors are on the way and talks about their specifications, we can only speculate.

Regardless of the accuracy of the new leak, it makes perfect sense that AMD would want to enter the midrange market before moving on to the new AM5 socket. Intel’s new budget CPUs are cheap, but they still pack a lot of punch for the new Golden Cove cores. There’s never been a better time for AMD to release some new units in an effort to recapture some of the market share for which Intel is now competing.
