AMD has finally launched its high-performance Ryzen 4000H series and low-power Ryzen 4000U series for laptops today. That’s not all. Laptops that sports Ryzen 4000 Mobile will go on Pre-Order today too, always know it will take some few days or months to be widely available.
More to that, AMD also confirmed Ryzen 9 4900H CPU. AMD announced that the 4900HS will appear in Asus’ 14-inch ROG Zephyrus G14, which weighs just over 3.5 pounds that’s a pretty small form factor to feature a flagship processor. Asus is marketing the model as “the world’s most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop.” Talking about the newly released Mobile CPU, it’s based on Zen2 architecture, a refined version designed specifically for laptops.
AMD showcased at its event in Austin earlier this year. Mobile has been AMD’s weakest segment for years, and while the company made inroads with the Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 3000 APU families, the Ryzen Mobile 4000 looks to be in another class entirely.
AMD claims 25% IPC gain over Ryzen 3000M, 20% lower SoC power, 2x higher power efficiency, and 5x faster state switching. But the integrated graphics received a substantial boost, all Renoir CPUs use 7nm Vega graphics.
The Renoir silicon is fabricated by TSMC in 7nm node, it features 9.8 billion transistors and the package is 25x25x1.38mm in size. This means that the package has twice as many transistors as Picasso while the die is 25% smaller.
The U-Series flagship, the Ryzen 7 4800U, is an 8-core / 16-thread processor with a max turbo frequency of 4.2GHz and integrated Vega-derived 8-core GPU. The initial Ryzen 4000 U-Series line-up consists of five processors, starting with the 4 core / 4 thread Ryzen 3 4300U, and topping-out with the aforementioned Ryzen 7 4800U.
AMD is also making the Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HS official today, along with HS variants of the previously announced parts. In total, the Ryzen 4000 H-Series lineup will initially consist of six processors, most of which are 8-core / 16-thread parts. Ryzen 9 4900HS, Ryzen 9 4900H, and Ryzen 7 4800H are all 8-core / 16-thread parts, whereas the Ryzen 5 4600H has 6-cores / 12-threads. These H-series processors target somewhat larger notebooks than the U-Series, that cater to gamers and content creators.
AMD is already claiming upwards of 100+ design wins that will debut through Q1 and later into the year. The company also notes that it is working closely with its partners to ensure a good user experience and that quality components are used in machines featuring its processors.
