AMD Ryzen processors for laptops launched

AMD  logoAMD today announced its lineup of Ryzen processors for laptops. The company has previously released Ryzen processors for both high-end and entry-level segments of the desktop PC market. The first two laptop processors from AMD’s Ryzen lineup have been unveiled today. They include the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U. Both chips have been designed for ultrathin, portable laptops.

The new chips are technically APUs, or “accelerated processing units,” as AMD teased back in May. What that means is that the chips have a CPU and an integrated GPU into one single chip. Both of the laptop processors that AMD has launched today are paired with a Radeon Vega graphics processor.

The 2.0 GHz Ryzen 5 2500U can be boosted to 3.6GHz while the Ryzen 7 2700U has a base speed of 2.2GHz which can be boosted to 3.8GHz. Both laptop processors are 15W with four cores and eight threads. As far as the graphics chips are concerned, the Ryzen 5 2500U is paired with eight Radeon Vega compute units clocked at up to 1100Mhz while the Ryzen 7 2700U has 10 Radeon Vega compute units that are clocked at up to 1300MHz.

AMD says that the new Ryzen laptop processors promise over 200 percent more CPU performance compared to its previous generation of laptop processors and up to 128 percent improved graphics performance.

The company has confirmed that its new laptop chips will be making their way to machines from HP, Acer, and Lenovo this holiday season.
