CES 2021, the time for all technology-based companies to shine with their latest innovations and creations all on show. AMD did just this with their latest Ryzen mobile processors based on 7nm Zen 3 architectures. The AMD Ryzen 5000 series chipsets for laptops and mobile devices were the highlight of CES 2021 for all computing fans and gamers out there.
With more range, more power, and more capabilities than ever before, in this article, we will outline how AMD Ryzen will set the gaming industry and laptop segment on fire with its latest hot innovations.
Who is AMD?
For those who don’t know, AMD or Advanced Micro Devices is an American company that produces semiconductors like computer processors and other computer-related hardware for the IT consumer market. In the CES convention held from the 11th of January till the 14th of January 2021, AMD announced and released their latest Ryzen 5000 series processors, based on the 7nm architecture. The 7nm processors are set to be the most powerful processors in PCs ever.
With all processor line ups, AMD has created 2 series of the Ryzen 5000 series, which suits two different target audiences. The one found in laptops for gaming and content creating is called the H series. This series offers the most power and capabilities a processor could ever handle.
The other chipset found in notebooks made for maximum portability & battery life is called the U series. Under both the categories, 13 new processors were developed and produced in the line-up providing different levels of performance.
More efficient than ever
The U series chipsets in laptops are aimed at thin and light laptops that aren’t based around gaming or content creation.
Utilizing an eight-core 16 thread AMD Ryzen 7 5800U flagship U series chipset will deliver a massive boost in efficiency with a clock up to 4.4Ghz compared to its rival Intel and previous chipsets produced under the Ryzen series.
It’s said that the AMD Ryzen U series laptops will also offer exceptional battery life compared to the H series gaming chipsets under the Ryzen 5000 line up. There will also be a Ryzen 5 6 5700, 5600U, 5500U, and 5300U series chipsets with either 4 to 8 cores rather than the Ryzen 7 5800U’s eight cores, which also features 8 to 16 threads compared to the 5800U’s 16 thread.
The 5700U, 5600U, 5500U & 5300U chipsets will also have a clock speed of max 3.8Ghz to 4.3Ghz like the 5800U’s 4.4Ghz making it still quite as efficient. The U series Ryzen 5000 chipsets ensure that the user gets the best possible battery life out of the device with a smaller 15w thermal power design. It’s clear to see that the U series Ryzen 5000 chipsets are the perfect mix between affordability and power in a laptop.
More powerful than ever
In the H series chipset laptops that AMD announced, the performance is slightly different from the U series chipsets due to the different target audiences. The H series performance chips come with double the cache memory compared to their previous counterparts from last year and have a much higher power supply to combat the demand made by heavy gaming or content creation.
The H series laptops’ designs are much thicker and less portable than the U series siblings, but for a reason. The AMD Ryzen 5000 H series processors offer from the base model (5600HS) 6 cores to the highest model (5980HX) with 8 cores, 12 to 16 thread counts, and processing boost speeds starting from 4.2Ghz and ranging up to 4.8Ghz for the most resource-heavy high-performance gaming needs.
The entry model H series Ryzen is known as the 5300HS boasts an impressive 6 cores, 12 threads, and a max speed of 4.2Ghz with 19Mb CPU cache. For entry-level processors for gaming, this is insane compared to their Intel rivals. The top-end flagship model for laptop gaming processors in the Ryzen 5000 line up is the 5980HX, boasting 8 cores, 16 threads, a max speed of 4.8Ghz, and 2Mb of cache for the processor.
The 5980HX is comparable to top-end desktop gaming computer processors with the most impressive specs ever to be seen in a gaming laptop. In the H series range, there is also the 5600H, 5800HS, 5800H, 5900HS, 5900HX, 5980HS which fall between the 5600HS & the top flagship model 5980HX chipsets.
Most of the processors that AMD released during CES in 2021 were intended more for desktop usage, but some powerful models like the ones listed above found their way into laptops making the gaming experience much more immersive and performance-related than ever before.
To add to the excitement of AMD’s high-end flagship processors, AMD also teased during CES 2021’s broadcast the upcoming graphics cards under their Radeon series for desktops, which hinted it could make way for new high-end graphics cards for laptops also. The new graphics cards under the Radeon series will feature a dual-fan design, higher capacities, and speeds than ever before.
During the CES 2021 convention, AMD has set the computing world alight with its high-end Ryzen 5000 series 7nm processors, which are set to be the world’s fastest and most capable chipsets ever produced with more range, more power, and more capabilities than ever before.
13 chipsets have been released for the ultimate laptop experience with two categories the U series which is for portability and maximum battery life & the heavy gaming high processing power H series chipsets. Combined with other specifications like high-end RAM & graphics cards, the laptops which possess the H or U series Ryzen 5000 series chipsets are set to become the world’s most capable laptops ever developed.
