New mobile chips

In addition to the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, AMD also launched a new lineup of Ryzen 4000 and Athlon 3000 mobile processors for laptops.

“We are kicking off 2020 with a bang, bringing unmatched performance, graphics, and longer battery life to ultrathin and gaming laptop users with the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile Processors,” said AMD Client Compute senior vice president Saeid Moshkelani.

“We saw historic portfolio growth for AMD Ryzen Mobile-powered systems in 2019, and we are already on track to bring wider system adoption of AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile Processors in 2020 from major OEM partners, offering twice the power-efficiency from the previous generation.”

These mobile processors boast up to 8 cores and 16 threads and are designed for ultrathin laptops with a configurable TDP of 15W.

AMD said its top-of-the-range Ryzen 7 4800H laptop chip boasts up to 18% faster graphics performance and 46% better multi-threaded performance than the competition.

The company’s Athlon 3000 chips are based on its Zen CPU architecture and offer greatly-improved performance for lower-end notebooks.

Systems with AMD Ryzen 4000 chips are set to roll out from global manufacturers in early 2020.
