Today, NEC has confirmed the AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition made its first existence inside Lavie N15 laptop. According to the listing spotted by @momomo_us, the Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition is an eight-core, 16-thread APU that likely belongs to Ryzen 4000 U-series codename Renoir family. Therefore, the 7nm octa-core processor should be based on the same Zen 2 CPU and Vega GPU microarchitectures.

AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition Specifications

Processor Cores / Threads Base / Boost Clock (GHz) L2 / L3 Cache (MB) Graphics Cores Graphics Frequency (MHz) TDP (W)
Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition 8 / 16 1.8 / 4.2 ? ? ? ?
Ryzen 7 4800U 8 / 16 1.8 / 4.2 4 / 8 8 1,750 15
Ryzen 7 4700U 8 / 8 2.0 / 4.1 4 / 8 7 1,600

Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition comes with a 1.8 GHz base clock and 4.2 GHz boost clock. It’s still unclear if the Extreme Edition actually brings any noticeable benefits over the Ryzen 7 4800U. If the Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition doesn’t have higher clock speeds than its only advantage could be more thermal headroom to sustain the boost clock speeds for a longer period of time.
