AMD Announces New Model Numbers for Future Mobile Processors
I feel that the new nomenclature is a mixed bag. While I appreciate the addition of an architecture generation digit, the model year digit could mislead buyers into thinking that they are getting a better product than they actually are.
Starting next year, AMD will move to a new model number scheme for its mobile processors and it appears that the company has decided to use the first digit to represent the model year, which should alleviate some past confusion. The second digit in the model name will represent where in the product stack the specific chip will sit and here we're potentially getting some new 6 and 8 models, although nothing guarantees that AMD will actually implement these segments into real products. The third digit represents the architecture, so a four equals Zen 4 for example.
