CES 2019: AMD has Announced a New Lineup of Ryzen, Athlon, and A-Series Mobile Processors

AMD has officially announced their new Ryzen 3000 mobile processors, the 2nd generation of their Ryzen mobile CPUs for laptops, at CES 2019, as well as a new Athlon 300 series and two 7th generation AMD A-series mobile processors.

The new lineup of Ryzen mobile processors include six variants in total – with two each under Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 3, respectively. Most of the new chips feature four CPU cores and eight threads, save for the two Ryzen 3 chips which only come with four threads and the lowest-end Ryzen 3 only featuring two cores.

The new lineup also includes two H-series processors, the Ryzen 7 3750H and the Ryzen 5 3550H, both of which feature higher TDPs at 35W instead of the 15W of the other chips. The higher TDP will allow laptop manufacturers to increase the boost clocks of the chips and maintain them for a longer time, making them very suitable for gaming laptops.

The high-end model of the lineup, the Ryzen 7 3750H features a base clock of 2.3GHz and a boost clock of 4.0GHz, 10 Vega GPU cores, a max GPU frequency of 1400MHz, and a L2+L3 Cache of 6MB. The Ryzen 5 3550H, on the other hand, has base and boost clocks of 2.1GHz and 3.7GHz, respectively, eight GPU cores, and a max GPU frequency of 1200MHz.

As previously mentioned, AMD has also announced new Athlon 300 series and 7th generation AMD A-series mobile processor targeted at entry-level laptops and Chromebooks, respectively.

Here are all the new Ryzen 3000 and 7th generation AMD A-series mobile processors:
