AMD’s Excellent Ryzen 5000 Series Is Coming to Laptops


Based around the corporation's Zen 3 architecture like the desktop chips, this hardware is again based on the super-efficient 7nm process that Intel can't now match.

AMD laptop processors: Chipmaker AMD has announced its latest line of laptop processors - the Ryzen 5000 series. At the same time, it said that the Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU bests the i9-10980HK processor for gaming with 14 percent better single-threaded performance and 37 percent overall CPU performance.

AMD's Ryzen series of CPUs seem to be getting better with every iteration, and the Ryzen 5000 series launched in the fall of 2020 was perhaps the most impressive series yet.

AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors include high-performance H- and ultra-mobile U-Series processors.

To support the dramatic shift to working and learning from home, AMD launched new AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the "Zen 3" core, combining industry-leading performance with the power efficiency needed for next-generation mobile PC computing.

"As the PC becomes an even more essential part of how we work, play and connect, users demand more performance, security and connectivity", said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client business unit, AMD.

We were assured that we would start to see the first laptops and notebooks with this technology appearing in February 2021. The desktop processors also come with powerful configurations, while the Ryzen Threadripper PRO offers up to 64 cores.

"AMD is also announcing reduced-TDP alternatives to the award-winning AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and AMD Ryzen 7 5800X desktop processors, coming to pre-built OEM systems only".

The flagship U-Series processor, the Ryzen 7 5800U consists of eight cores, 16 threads, a 1.9 GHz base frequency, a 4.4 turbo frequency and a 20 MB cache. Both are essentially lower-TDP versions of their "full-fat" counterparts, with the 5900 still a 12C/24T chip, while the 5800 is 8C/16T. All the CPUs offer 8 cores and 16 threads, except for the 5600H/HS which has 6 cores and 12 threads.

The Threadripper PRO is going to be made available to the consumers starting by March 2021.
