AMD launched two new APUs, as seen in its list of products. The new Ryzen 7 2800H and Ryzen 5 2600H chips are 45W mobile processors designed around improving notebooks.
Both 14nm chips host four CPU cores, eight processor threads, and Radeon Vega graphics. They will support DDR4 RAM up to 3200 MHz. Furthermore, the processors’ power can be tuned between configurations as low as 35W or as high as 54W. This allows a choice between better performance or better battery life for the associated notebook.
In terms of clock speed, the Ryzen 7 2800H runs at a regular 3.3GHz base, managing up to 3.8GHz when boosted, along with 1.3GHz of Radeon Vega 11 graphics. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 5 2600H chip runs at a slightly lower 3.2GHz base, up to 3.6GHz boosted, and 1.1GHz Radeon Vega 8 graphics.
Currently, AMD has not officially announced these mobile processors, though the addition to its list ensures that they’re on their way. Overall, expect AMD’s new chips to appear in high-end laptops in the months ahead. Back in July, AMD launched its 2nd Gen Ryzen CPUs in Malaysia, which you can read about here.
Price and availability of the Ryzen 7 2800H and Ryzen 5 2600H APUs are unknown at the moment.
