AMD Ryzen Mobile

We've been waiting for this one for a while now but the day has arrived where AMD Ryzen mobile devices are now available. The Ryzen CPUs have sold well and now you'll be able to get them in laptop form. The Ryzen mobile CPUs will also feature the popular Vega graphics, which is probably the more exciting side of things for people who are looking for a mobile device that can still turn out some decent gaming performance. To begin with, Acer, HP, and Lenovo, will all have devices available at launch with the Ryzen/Vega combo and from early indications it looks like they could be a good choice for your next laptop. Anandtech has the details.

The final piece of AMD’s return to high-performance computing is in laptops. While Ryzen, Threadripper, and EPYC have used the 8-core Zeppelin building block for their products, the laptop side of the equation will combine the new high-performance Zen core with the latest Vega graphics in a single piece of silicon. AMD is now set to release the results of their efforts: a single silicon chip offering four Zen cores, up to 10 Vega compute units, and a unified power delivery system all in under 15W, with AMD touting +200% CPU performance and +128% GPU performance over its previous generation of laptop processors. HP, Lenovo and Acer are releasing laptops based on the Ryzen Mobile hardware today (or soon), and we expect to see more OEMs at CES in January with their offerings.
