AMD officially released the Ryzen 500 mobile processor at CES 2021 on the 12th. AMD will want to continue the desktop achievement of the top gaming PC, overtaking the Intel Core i9 with its powerful Zen 3 architecture. It is also an unexpected gift that the focus is on battery life again. This opens the possibility of solving the well-known weaknesses of Ryzen-equipped laptops.
At CES 2021, which is now taking place virtually rather than in Las Vegas, AMD CEO Lisa Su introduced the new mobile chip lineup during a keynote address. It hasn’t announced a new GPU, but said the AMD RDNA 2 GPU architecture found on the RX6800 and similar chips will appear in mobile GPUs in the first half of 2021 along with’mainstream’ desktop graphics cards. In addition, we demonstrated’Dirt 5’in a laptop with a resolution of 1440p and an Ultra High (UH) setting of 50fps or higher.
However, it was the processor that also received attention. AMD has launched 13 new chips in the AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile processor series. In addition to the updated 5900HS and 5980HS flagship processors, the 5900HX, which is proud to be the’world’s best gamer processor’, is added.
These high-end 7nm processors boast the highest number of 8 cores and 16 threads, turbo clock speeds of up to 4.8GHz, and can range from 19MB to 20MB by doubling the cache capacity to further boost overall performance. While most of the new Ryzen processors are designed for 15W, 35W, and 45W, the new HX chips give notebook manufacturers a choice of more than 45W designs.
Surprisingly, most of the rumors turned out to be true. In the AMD Ryzen 5000 series, processors using the old Zen 2 architecture are mixed without any special distinction. So when you buy a Ryzen laptop, you need to carefully look at what it is. Sales of the new Ryzen Mobile 5000 family will start in February. AMD also did not disclose the new chip graphics performance.
“The Ryzen 4000 series has received a lot of good reviews,” said Robert Hallock, AMD Technical Marketing Director. Various experts have expressed that they are changing the game or rewriting the rules, and I am very grateful. But the 5000 series is much better. It’s an amazing product.”
Ryzen 5000 Mobile, AMD Zen 3 for Mobile
AMD’s new processor is composed of 5 types of U-series processors for thin and light notebooks and 8 types of H-series processors for gaming notebooks. Both AMD and Intel prioritized gaming at CES. It is to promote high-end chip sales and respond to the rapidly growing gaming demand during the coronavirus outbreak.
AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors include: All are manufactured on the AMD 7nm manufacturing line and include simultaneous multithreading.
AMD introduced the Ryzen 4900HS, a power processor for lightweight systems, with the Ryzen 4000 mobile series. The AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile processor lineup is deeper than its predecessor. In addition, three Ryzen 4000 HS chips have now been replaced with four Ryzen 5000HS chips.
At the time, AMD claimed that the’HS’ lineup was’ultimate portable gaming performance’, but now something better has come out. It is the HX series. Could it be better than the ultimate?
According to AMD, the new Ryzen 9 5900HX, furthermore, the entire HX family is the’world’s best mobile processor for gamers’. HS series chips like the Ryzen 9 5980HS are 35W chips, while the 5900HX and 5980HZ are rated at over 45W. It is not clear how high above that. AMD says the HX-series processors aren’t even locked. So avid fans can get their hands on clock speed.
More important than power and performance
Focusing on power, not performance, may seem odd, but the improvements achieved in AMD’s newer chips may mean more than just increasing clock speeds and caches. In the Ryzen 5000 mobile family, AMD has switched to what is called Collaborative Power Performance Control (CPPC). CPPC is a technology that moves the CPU clock and power control device to the CPU’s own firmware and mobile space.
The original CPPC function was included in the AMD’Zen 2’desktop chip, which slightly improved the’performance’ of the Ryzen 3000 series. However, since frequency affects’power’ consumption, CPPC will have a more meaningful effect in the power use of Ryzen laptops.
Think about it. Although it’s more than a year and it’s comparing the AMD older Ryzen 7 3780U to the Intel Core i7-1065G7, other than that, the match-up comparison between the same Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 was particularly interesting. Intel Core outperformed AMD Ryzen by about 10% in performance benchmarks, but Ryzen outperformed by more than 40% in terms of battery life.
Since then, AMD has managed to catch up with performance that has been lagging behind. However, according to Robert Hallock, head of technology marketing, the battery life of Ryzen Mobile 5000 laptops has been increased by two more hours with CPPC. In general, it lasts a total of 17.5 hours in use and a total of 21 hours in video playback.(This is based on the case of playing 1080p video on a Ryzen 7 5800U laptop equipped with a battery at 53W and using the MobileMark 2018 benchmark. Brightness was not disclosed).
“It’s easy to add performance to SOC,” Haloc said. At the same time, it is much more difficult to achieve a good battery life. That is exactly what AMD did with the Zen 3, 7 nanometers, and the Ryzen 5000 series.”
Impressive performance of the Ryzen 5000 mobile
But for many, the most important thing is performance. AMD confidently insisted that the Ryzen 5000 mobile will certainly compete, even if it does not completely overwhelm Intel’s best products. Can be compared).
First of all, for the comparison between generations, the single-threaded scores posted as Ryzen Mobile 5300U, 5500U, and 5700U scores will be covered in detail in the next session.
AMD also released multi-threaded scores. Here, processors like 4800U and 5800U have the same number of cores and threads. The difference is the frequency difference. The Ryzen 7 4800 has a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz and a turbo speed of 4.2 GHz, while the Ryzen 7 5800U has a base clock speed of 1.9 GHz and a turbo speed of 4.4 GHz.
Taking it a step further with the Ryzen 9 5980HS is still an impressive improvement.
AMD boasted that the Ryzen 5000 mobile is equivalent to the Core i7-1165G7 as well as AMD’s own 4800U. Here, the measurement criterion is PCMark’s productivity app. Improvements were noticeable in Excel and PC Mark 10, which are among the strongest apps in the Microsoft Office suite.
However, in gaming, AMD had a chance to put Intel to an end, but it didn’t. The 3DMark Fire Strike Physics score is definitely impressive, but AMD hasn’t specified any benchmark scores for gaming in its media source.
Some of the Ryzen 5000 mobile processors, rumors that the Zen 2 is true
In the early days, rumors were rumored that some of the new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors were using the old’Zen 2’core rather than the latest Zen 3. The AMD’Lucienne’ chip is based on AMD’s old Zen 2 architecture, and the’Cezanne’ is designed based on the more powerful Zen 3 architecture. It has been said that the AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile series includes both without distinction. The rumors were mostly accurate.
According to AMD, three of the new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors (Ryzen 7 5000U, Ryzen 5 5500U, and Ryzen 3 5300U) use the Zen 2 microarchitecture. Unfortunately, there are no indications or acronyms to distinguish them from other processors in the same family. However, as previously shown in the benchmark, even the’Zen 2’of the Ryzen Mobile 5000 series is slightly faster than the previous Ryzen Mobile 4000. If you don’t want to get confused, the method is simple. Buy one of the new Ryzen 5000H series processors.
What matters to AMD is the number of processors sold. In this regard, AMD may have already promised success based on the design advantages of the previous two generations. AMD announced that 150 individual mobile PCs will be built based on the Ryzen Mobile 5000 family. This is an increase compared to the previous generation’s 100s. In the end, these numbers indicate that AMD has established itself as a leading edge processor supplier in the eyes of PC customers. email@example.com
