      Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) Introduces the New Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U Mobile Processors

       

      Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) announced the introduction of the AMD Ryzen™ mobile processor, previously codenamed the “Raven Ridge” mobile APU, providing leadership performance and a complete entertainment experience with optimal efficiency for premium 2-in-1s, convertibles and ultrathin notebook computers. With a configurable 15-watt TDP, the AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U and AMD Ryzen™ 5 2500U processors combine the architecture of award-winning “Zen” x86 cores--featuring AMD SenseMI Technology processor-level intelligence--with revolutionary Radeon “Vega” graphics in a System-on-Chip design to achieve unprecedented ultrathin notebook performance. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is the fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, with up to 44% more multi-threaded CPU performance3 as well as up to 161% more graphics performance than the competition.

      Consisting of up to 4 cores and 8 threads, Ryzen™ mobile processors include AMD SenseMI Technology and are designed for leadership performance in a sleek form factor. The AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U processor is the world’s fastest for ultrathin notebooks, featuring a 15W nominal processor TDP3,4. In addition, AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors provide blazing fast performance compared to the previous AMD mobile processor generation, with;

      • Up to 3X the CPU performance5
      • up to 2.3X the GPU performance6
      • and up to 58% less power consumption7

      Ryzen mobile processors also introduce for the first time:

      • new Precision Boost 2 technology, which accelerates processor performance in workloads using from one to many CPU cores8 and
      • Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR)9, which raises sustained performance in notebooks with great cooling solutions on notebooks certified for “Ultimate XFR Performance”

          AMD's New Ryzen Mobile APUs Promise Much Higher Performance, Better Battery Life - ExtremeTech

           

          AMD announced its new Ryzen Mobile APUs today, kicking off what’s arguably its most important refresh of 2017. Over the past decade, laptops have accounted for a steadily growing percentage of the total PC market. At the same time, however, AMD was forced to fight a defensive rear-guard action with a CPU design that was fundamentally unsuited to high-efficiency, low-power operation. As of today, that’s (hopefully) changing.

          Like Intel, AMD is taking a staggered approach to its rollout and launching just two new mobile parts: Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U. Both new cores are 15W parts; a summary of the two chips and comparison to their closest Intel counterparts is shown below:

              HP has already detailed one model, and it's not that bad, though given the power inefficiency of Vega, I wonder what battery life will be like?

              We reached out to HP and were able to obtain the full specifications of the Envy x360, which can be equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U. The memory and storage options remain the same, with up to 8GB (2 x 4GB) of DDR4-2400 and up to a 512GB SSD or 1TB HDD. The 15.6” 1920 x 1080 IPS display is also a touchscreen, and you can get online using 802.11ac Wi-Fi. 

               

              The Envy x360 sports two USB 3.0 ports, in addition to a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port with 5 Gb/s data transfer speeds and DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity. You can also connect an external display with an HDMI port. The device is powered by a 65W AC adapter and a 3-cell 55.8 WH lithium-ion prismatic battery, and it weighs in at 4.75 lbs.

              HP indicated that the new Envy x360 will debut in November, starting at $699.
