Unsurprisingly, AMD entered the CES stage this week and announced a new notebook CPU. Most of the new Ryzen 5000 mobile chip family have similarities to the desktop CPUs that the company announced a few months ago, and will begin shipping with notebooks from some major computer manufacturers in February.
The new chips are divided into two sub-series, based at least in part on 7nm Zen 3 technology: H series are high-end, performance-oriented gaming and content creation notebooks, while U-series are series, focusing on Intel’s dominant position in the ultra-portable field , And pay more attention to power efficiency.
The biggest lifts in the lineup are Ryzen 9 5980HX and 5980HS. The former is a game-oriented chip that will be unlocked due to overclocking on some machines. At the same time, the latter is more suitable for laptops designed for creativity. Both of these (and all but the two chips in the Ryzen 5000 mobile series) have eight CPU cores and 1
This is a chart that contains the specifications of all chips announced on the AMD website:
U series products also include 8-core chips, but as you can see, there are also several 6-core chips. Although AMD has recently troubled the life of rival Intel on performance-oriented machines, Intel is still dominating the ultra-portable space (for now), so AMD certainly hopes to achieve some growth there. By then, AMD claims that the 5800U can provide nearly 18 hours of battery life under normal use, and 21 hours in terms of video playback. (Intel also announced its own laptop chips this week.)
In terms of gaming, AMD stated that the 5900HX is more than 20% higher in 3DMark than Intel’s Core i9-10980HK. Considering our desktop performance, this is obviously reasonable-although it is certainly wise to wait for others’ benchmarks. AMD.
OEMs have already begun to release laptops with these chips, so we hope to see these enlightening benchmarks as early as next month.
