AMD has started in 2021 as it ended 2020: strong. During her presentation at the virtual CES that is being held this week, Lisa Su, the general director of this company, announced some of the launches that are being prepared in the short term, and among them, the imminent coming-out of their new microprocessors for laptops: the Ryzen Mobile 5000 con microarquitectura Zen 3.
These chips are built on the same technology used by Ryzen 5000 processors for desktop computers, and this is fantastic news when you consider how well these CPUs have shown us to perform. on our test bench. There is no doubt that this is a very consistent, and predictable move, because it will allow AMD compete with more intensity in a market, that of laptops, in which Intel has traditionally ruled.
AMD Ryzen Mobile 5000: Zen 3 and 7 nm to make it difficult for Intel in laptops
Like the Ryzen 5000 desktop processors, the new Ryzen Mobile 5000 stands on la microarquitectura Zen 3 and are being manufactured using 7nm photolithography. Lisa Su has confirmed during her presentation that these chips have been conceived from the beginning to maximize performance per wattSo they aspire to be a very robust solution for next-generation ultrathin laptops where it is imperative not to sacrifice even the slightest bit of performance. This promise seems reasonable considering the good feelings that the Ryzen 5000 for desktop PCs have caused us.
One of the processors that Lisa Su has shown during the AMD event at this virtual CES is the Ryzen 7 5800U, and, as you can see in the next slide, it has pitted it against Intel’s Core i7-1186G7, which is its natural competitor. We all know that the performance tests offered by manufacturers must be taken with great caution, but if the numbers that AMD boasts are confirmed, there is no doubt that they have a very competitive product in their hands. This processor has 8 cores, processes 16 threads of execution (threads) and can work at a maximum clock frequency of 4.4 GHz.
The autonomy figures associated with the Ryzen 7 5800U processor that AMD is talking about look really good: 17.5 hours in a mixed use scenario and nothing less than 21 hours of video playback. Again, the most prudent thing is that we take these numbers with caution until we have the opportunity to thoroughly analyze one of the first laptops that will mount these CPUs, but if these data are confirmed the battle for autonomy between Intel and AMD will intensify so much or more than the competition for offering the best performance.
In addition to the processor that we have reviewed so far, Lisa Su has presented two other even more ambitious models: the Ryzen 9 5900HX and the Ryzen 9 5980HX. The first has 8 cores, processes 16 threads, a combined second and third level cache of 20MB, and a TDP of 45 watts. It can run at a maximum clock frequency of 4.6 GHz. On the other hand, the Ryzen 9 5980HX has 8 cores, processes 16 threads, and has the same cache subsystem and TDP as the 5900HX. The difference between these two CPUs lies in the maximum frequency at which they are capable of working because the latter reaches 4.8 GHz, a very respectable figure if we bear in mind that it is a chip for laptops.
They are just around the corner: the first teams will arrive in February
The first laptops equipped with AMD’s new Ryzen Mobile 5000 microprocessors will hit stores during next february. AMD has confirmed that during 2021 they hope to introduce a total of 150 laptops with these chips on the market, a figure much higher than the 100 devices with Ryzen Mobile 4000 processor currently available, and, above all, the 70 laptops that are currently available. day they bet on a Ryzen Mobile 3000 CPU.
RDNA 2 architecture will also come to laptops
Shortly before the end of her conference Lisa Su has revealed another move that AMD will make in the short term: its graphics processors Radeon RX 6000 they will also reach laptops. Like Zen 3, the RDNA 2 architecture has proven to perform very well on our test bench, so its arrival on laptops is, without a doubt, good news for users.

It seems that AMD is finally going to be able to compete face to face with NVIDIA in this market segment, although to be sure and verify how the new AMD performs so well as what NVIDIA is presumably going to launch we will have to wait until the first laptops fall into our hands. We can be sure that 2021 will bring us strong emotions.
