AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors Featuring ‘Zen’ CPU Cores and ‘Vega’ Graphics Architecture Launched
AMD has updated it entire CPU product range this year. The company has targeted virtually everyone, from entry-level users for who it released its Ryzen 3 series to hard-core users for who it made available the Threadripper.
Now, AMD has made good on its promise to release laptop APU’s (Accelerated Processing Units) with integrated graphics before the end of 2017.
AMD has now launched what it calls the “world’s fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks,” a tall claim considering that these will have to matched against Intel’s latest 8th Generation Core processors.
Talking about the new AMD Ryzen Processors, the company says: “With a configurable 15-watt TDP, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U and AMD Ryzen 5 2500U processors combine the architectures of award-winning “Zen” x86 cores–featuring AMD SenseMI Technology2 processor-level intelligence–with revolutionary Radeon “Vega” graphics in a System-on-Chip design to achieve unprecedented ultrathin notebook performance. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is the fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, with up to 44% more multi-threaded CPU performance as well as up to 161% more graphics performance4 than the competition.”
“We promised to bring innovation and competition back to every segment of the PC market in 2017, and today marks the fulfillment of that promise for consumer notebooks following our successful roll-out across the consumer, commercial and high-end desktop markets earlier this year,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. “Ryzen mobile processors offer leadership performance for everyday activities, multi-tasking, and advanced workloads alike, all while enabling amazing battery life. We are pleased to deliver the world’s fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, offering consumers the opportunity to get the most out of their digital lives through our OEM partners’ notebook designs.”
