Although AMD just launched its Ryzen 5000 CPUs for the desktop market, we’re already seeing the mobile counterparts in various leaks and rumors. An Acer Aspire 5 laptop, powered by a Ryzen 5 5700U APU was recently listed by Amazon Italy (via NBC):
The 5700U is expected to be a Lucienne part, utilizing the Zen 2 cores on the CPU side and a further refined version of the Vega integrated graphics. The Ryzen 5000 APU lineup is expected to consist of both Cezanne and Lucienne SKUs, with the former utilizing the Zen 3 core and the latter being based on the older Zen 2 design.

The Acer Aspire 5 laptop listed features 8GB of DDR4 memory and a 512 GB SSD. With respect to I/O, it comes with an RJ-45, 2x USB 3.1 Type-A, 1x USB 2.0 Type-A, and 1x USB 3.2 Type-C connectors. As you can see, this is supposed to be a budget offering, as is reflected by the 779 Euro price tag.
Of course, the listing has now been removed, but thanks to the above mentioned source, we have a snapshot of the same. The laptop was supposedly going to start selling in Feb 2021, once again indicating a CES 2021 launch for the Ryzen 5000 mobile APUs.
Over the last year or so, AMD has been aggressively pursuing the notebook market, gaining an all-time high market share of 22% by the end of Q3 2020. This isn’t a surprise as the portable PC market is much wider than the DIY PC segment and has a notably higher reach.
