AMD announces Ryzen 5000 series laptop microprocessors

One of those is AMD they usually have unveiled new Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile processors powered by its newest Zen 3 cores.

Chip maker AMD has announced a new portfolio of its Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors, aiming to provide unprecedented levels of performance and incredible battery life for gamers, creators and professionals. The Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors will bring "Zen 3" core architecture to laptops. The H-series models are based on Zen 3 architecture while the U-series have Zen 2 architecture. The HX-series includes the Ryzen 9 5980HX and Ryzen 9 5900HX.

At CES, the company introduced the first Ryzen 5000 mobile CPUs, which will arrive in laptops as soon as February. The new processor also offers up to 17.5 hours of battery life on general usage and 21 hours of movie playback on a single charge, claims AMD.

When placed against Intel's Core i9 10th-gen, the overall performance difference reaches up to an impressive 37%, according to AMD's bench tests.


The company also unveiled 3 new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors for higher-end computer systems.

The Ryzen 9 5900HX is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with a 4.6Ghz boost clock and 20MB cache.

With Zen 3's major improvement in single-threaded performance, AMD showed that the flagship Ryzen 7 5800U narrowed or closed the gap with Intel's Core i7-1165G7 or even exceeded its competitor for office productivity. Although the new desktop processors come with all the latest AMD technologies, these will be exclusively available on pre-built computer systems from the company.

At launch, the Ryzen 5000 mobile lineup will consist of five U-Series processors for ultrathin laptops that operate at a 15-watt thermal design power and eight H-Series processors for gaming and content creation laptops that range from 35-45 watts in TDP. (I'll be averaging that with Gartner's data soon for a clearer look at previous year.) "That's the highest number since 2014, and we expect demand to be even higher in 2021 as the PC continues playing an even larger role in our daily lives".
