Ryzen 5 Lineup Expands: AMD Adds 7235H & 7235HS

Recently, AMD discreetly announced two new APUs on its official website—the Ryzen 5 7235H and Ryzen 5 7235HS—both of which are based on the Zen 3+ core architecture and belong to the Rembrandt-R chip family, under the Ryzen 7035 series. While AMD has not formally disclosed these new APUs, their appearance on the official website suggests their market debut is imminent.

In terms of specifications, both the AMD Ryzen 5 7235H and Ryzen 5 7235HS are manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm FinFET process, featuring four cores and eight threads. They have a base clock speed of 3.2GHz and can boost up to 4.2GHz, equipped with 2MB of L2 cache and 8MB of L3 cache. With a default TDP of 45W and a configurable TDP range between 35-53W, these APUs support PCIe 4.0, dual-channel DDR5-4800 memory, and require a discrete graphics card for operation, targeting primarily the mid-to-low-end notebook and mini PC markets.

It is noteworthy that according to AMD’s 2023 processor naming conventions, the new Ryzen 5 7235H/7235HS APUs would correspond to the Athlon Gold series. Their specifications indeed seem more aligned with this designation, yet by elevating them to the Ryzen 5 tier in 2024, AMD likely pursues a strategic positioning.

We previously reported the emergence of a new Core Ultra processor on Intel’s official website, the Core Ultra 5 115U. This model features a modest configuration compared to other Ultra 5 series models, with 2 Performance cores, 4 Efficient cores, and 2 Little Power Efficient cores, totaling 8 cores and 10 threads, and its Iris Xe graphics comprise only 3 Xe cores. This positions it similarly to the AMD Ryzen 5 7235H/7235HS, indicating these products may soon be direct competitors.
