CES 2020 has kicked off, and the red team is bringing its A-game to the battlefield by unveiling their next generation of mobile processors to start off 2020. At CES 2020, AMD pulled off the curtain from its 3rd gen Ryzen 4000 laptop processors.
Just last year, at CES 2019, Lisa Su had revealed the Radeon 7, which marked the transition of AMD chips to the 7nm process. The Navi and Ryzen 3000 desktop chips are now all using the 7nm architecture.
Based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture, the new Ryzen 4000 processors will be used across an extensive variety of laptops, ranging from powerful gaming and content creation devices to ultra-portable laptops. AMD showed off the Ryzen 7 4800U, an 8 core/16 thread processor with a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz that boosts up to 4.2 GHz, and a TDP of just 15W. AMD claims that the graphics performance for this CPU will be 28% faster than Intel’s i7.
By the end of 2020, over a 100 laptops will be using the Ryzen 4000 chips, one of the first ones being the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, which was also revealed at CES 2020.
AMD also revealed the Ryzen 7 4800H, which is aimed at the gaming market. This is another 8core/16 thread CPU, but with a base clock speed of 2.9GHz, boosting up to 4.2GHz. The TDP for the 4800H is 45W.
The red team has been slowly stepping up its laptop game after dominating the desktop CPU market in recent times, and with a big reveal as this kicking off 2020, things are only bound to get more interesting. Stay tuned for more updates.
