AMD’s hot streak is set to continue with their highly anticipated launch in the mobile processor space today with the AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U and AMD Ryzen™ 2500U. Included in two new variants of laptop: the Lenovo Ideapad 720S and Acer Swift 3, the Ryzen™ Mobile Processing family not only comes with impressive CPU clock speeds due to their “Zen” x86 cores – it also comes with great integrated graphical capabilities using the Radeon “Vega” graphical cores that come with the chip itself.
“Last year, AMD promised to improve and bring back innovation to the PC market. Today, we made good on that promise in Malaysia with the launch of the world’s fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, the AMD Ryzen™ Mobile processor. This new offering in the mobile PC market is the result of our understanding of customers and the technology they need to enhance their lifestyle. Ryzen™ Mobile processors will offer leadership performance for everyday activities, multi-tasking, and advanced workloads alike, all with an amazing battery life. Together with our OEM partners such as Lenovo and Acer, we are pleased to deliver to Malaysians a technology that will help them get the most out of their digital lives,” said Peter Chambers, AMD Director of Consumer Sales in APJ.
Early benchmarks of AMD’s chips have been very promising, putting it neck and neck in terms of CPU horsepower against similar offerings by Intel and completely outpacing them in integrated graphical horsepower. If you’re looking for a must buy value laptop in 2018, it may be worth looking into AMD’s new offerings.
