AMD has announced a new approach to mobile processor numbering - it looks confusing

AMD has announced a change in the naming approach for its mobile processors that will be available starting next year, 2023.
The new naming scheme is intended to better reflect whether the chips belong to a particular generation of the Zen architecture.Image source: AMDThe first digit in the processor number will reflect the model year.
Model year 2023 models will start with a \"7\", model year 2024 chips with an \"8\", 2025 chips with a \"9\" and so on.
The second number in the name reflects the processor level and whether it belongs to the main Ryzen 3, 5, 7 and 9 series, or the Athlon series products.
Also since 2023 AMD will start specifying belonging of the processors to this or that architecture.
It will be indicated by the third number in the model number.
For example, by the name Ryzen xx4x it will be clear that the chip is built on Zen 4 architecture, while a name like Ryzen xx2x will indicate the presence of Zen 2 architecture.
So the upcoming Mendocino on Zen 2 will likely have names like Ryzen 7x2x.Finally, the last number will indicate whether it is a regular model or Refresh.
For example, AMD has confirmed the development of updated models Rembrandt, which will be available in Ryzen 7x35 series (the last number \"5\" indicates the refresh).
Also in the future laptops will appear processors Phoenix series (for thin and powerful laptops), and Dragon Range (for very powerful gaming laptops), which will be released under the names 7x40 and 7x45.Suffix (HS, HX, U and so on) in the model names, as now continue to indicate the level of power consumption of a particular chip.
For example, models with suffix \"e\" will have TDP level of 9W, and models with suffix HX - 55W.
AMD has also confirmed names of some future mobile processors for the first time.
For example, next year we can expect the Ryzen 9 7945HX (Dragon Range) with 55W TDP on the Zen 4 architecture.
And in the series of energy efficient Mendocino processors will be chips with TDP from 15 to 28W.
One of the representatives of this series will be Ryzen 3 7420U on Zen 2 architecture.
