From the CES 2021 comes the announcement of the new AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile processors for laptops and as with the desktop processors we now have Zen 3 cores with all the improvements of this technology.
Within the new processors for laptops we have two ranges, a more powerful called Ryzen 5000H for gaming laptops or high needs and other low power called Ryzen 5000U. Two product lines that have worked very well to AMD, no doubt nobody could imagine a few years ago that Intel lost so much market share in laptops.
In the most powerful Ryzen 5000H series we have a wide range of processors all based on the Zen 3 cores that we have recently seen on the desktop. These products can be combined with a dedicated GPU with its own GDRAM to accelerate performance to the maximum, all with a consumption between 35 and 45 W TPD. A tough competitor for the recent Intel Gen11 that has just been presented to fight for the throne of power in laptops.
According to AMD in the presentation, the Ryzen 9 5980HX offers 23% more theoretical performance in single-core and up to 15% more in multi-core, compared to the previous generation Ryzen 4000 Mobile.
|Ryzen 9 5980HX||8C / 16T||3.3 GHz||4.8 GHz||45W+|
|Ryzen 9 5980HS||8C / 16T||3.0 GHz||4.8 GHz||35W|
|Ryzen 9 5900HX||8C / 16T||3.3 GHz||4.6 GHz||45W+|
|Ryzen 9 5900HS||8C / 16T||3.0 GHz||4.6 GHz||35W|
|Ryzen 7 5800H||8C / 16T||3.2 GHz||4.4 GHz||45W|
|Ryzen 7 5800HS||8C / 16T||2.8 GHz||4.4GHz||35W|
|Ryzen 5 5600H||6C / 12T||3.3 GHz||4.2 GHz||45W|
|Ryzen 5 5600HS||6C / 12T||3.0 GHz||4.2 GHz||35W|
In the low power sector with integrated Vega GPUs, we have the Ryzen 5000U which is a very attractive solution in terms of price, as has happened with the current Ryzen 4000U which are in very high demand. We must bear in mind that this new range of processors has two versions, one with Zen3 cores and another for cheaper products that mount Zen2 cores, something that must be taken into account when looking at a laptop with these APUs.
In the AMD comparisons we can see as a reference that the Ryzen 7 5800U processor would have a 16% performance improvement in single-core and up to 14% more powerful in multi-core than the previous Ryzen 7 4800U Mobile.
