AMD began 2019 by renewing the Ryzen family: it introduced seven new second-generation notebook processors, and confirmed the third generation of desktop chips, which will hit the market with support for PCI Express 4.0 and Zen-2 architecture, seven nanometers.
AMD announced the first members of its 2019 mobility line spanning all notebook segments: AMD Ryzen 3000 second generation mobile processors powering ultrathin notebooks and gaming notebooks; AMD Athlon series 300 mobile processors powering key notebooks with the ‘Zen’ 3 core fast and efficient; and optimized the 7 Gen AMD A-Series processors, boosting the performance of traditional Chromebooks.
With 15-watt Thermal Design Power, the amount of power that needs to be dissipated from the peripheral for smooth operation, the processors must be competitive with Intels, repeating the desktop scenario.
An interesting point to note is how Vega GPUs behave in notebooks, especially given Intel’s difficulty in creating high-performance graphics cards for its processors.
Exceptional performance for all your tasks. The AMD Ryzen ™ PRO mobile processor combines the award-winning technology that powers AMD Ryzen ™ PRO processors with the revolutionary graphics of the Radeon ™ “Vega” architecture to accelerate complex computing demands, multitasking, visual computing and multimedia applications.
Optimize your ROI and provide long-term consistency with business-grade reliability, image stability, and platform longevity.
These are AMD’s new flagship laptops, with six Ryzen 3000 and one Athlon:
Ryzen 7 3750H: four cores, eight threads, 2.3 GHz base clock (4 GHz with boost), 6 MB cache memory, Radeon Vega 10 GPU and 35 W TDP;
Ryzen 7 3700U: four cores, eight threads, base clock 2.3 GHz (4 GHz with boost), 6 MB cache, Radeon Vega 10 and TDP 35 W;
Ryzen 5 3550H: four cores, eight threads, base clock 2.1 GHz (3.7 GHz with boost), 6 MB cache, Radeon Vega 8 and TDP 35 W;
Ryzen 5 3500U: four cores, eight threads, base clock 2.1 GHz (3.7 GHz with boost), 6 MB cache, Radeon Vega 8 and TDP 15 W;
Ryzen 3 3300U: four cores, four threads, base clock 2.1 GHz (3.5 GHz with boost), 6 MB cache, Radeon Vega 6 and TDP 15 W;
Ryzen 3 3200U: two cores, four threads, base clock 2.6 GHz (3.5 GHz with boost), 5 MB cache, Radeon Vega 3 and TDP 15 W;
Athlon 300U: two cores, four threads, base clock 2.4 GHz (3.3 GHz with boost), 5 MB cache, Radeon Vega 3 and TDP 15 W.
The new Ryzen Mobile processors have Vega graphics ranging from 3 to 10 GPU cores with GPU clock rates up to 6MB. These new Ryzen Mobile 3000 Series processors are quite interesting and we hope to see some interesting notebook designs coming soon with these Zen + Vega processors.
This is possible because the standard brings a bandwidth per line of about 2 GB / s, so x16 devices can achieve a maximum rate of 32 GB / s, of course. And since PCIe 4.0 operates in full duplex mode, receiving and sending data simultaneously, we reach the maximum number promised.
AMD is the first to introduce the standard into solutions for the end consumer.
