The Game Awards and Keighley himself will be teasing what's to come at this year's event via their social media accounts, so far including a live presentation by Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida and a live performance of "Blood Upon The Snow" from God of War Ragnarok by popular musician Hozier.
A new leak has reinforced rumours of AMD releasing another Zen 3-based APU refresh. In October, ASUS Turkey briefly listed a Zenbook 14 powered by the Ryzen 7 7730U, which seemed like a simple refresh of the Ryzen 5000U series model. Subsequently, a leaker on Weibo has shared a Task Manager screenshot in which the final three characters of 'Ryzen 7 7730U' have been poorly obscured.
As the screenshot below shows, the Ryzen 7 7730U has 8 cores, 16 threads and the same cache volumes as its Barcelo-based predecessor. Additionally, Task Manager reports a 2 GHz base clock speed, a further link with the Ryzen 7 5825U. The APU's boost clock speed is unknown at this stage, although it is worth remembering that the Ryzen 7 5825U has a 100 MHz higher CPU clock speed than the Ryzen 7 5800U, taking it up to 4.5 GHz. Incidentally, the Ryzen 9 5980HX offers a 4.8 GHz peak boost clock, with other Ryzen 5000H APUs capable of reaching at least 4.6 GHz.
