This week’s CES saw AMD take center stage as they introduced the new Ryzen 5000 to the world- something they consider to be the best gaming CPU in the market. Now, they also announced quite a few laptop CPUs that incidentally shared the same chip family. In fact, most of the Ryzen 5000 actually had similarities with the desktop CPUs that were announced by AMD a few months back. It is expected that they would be coming in with better laptops while collaborating with the best computer-markets in the market.
AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Will Definitely Give Good Competition To The Intel CPUs
The new Ryzen 5000 chips have been divided into two different sub-families. Interestingly, both the families play a part based on the 7nm Zen 3 tech. On one hand, they have the H series- which is stipulated for performance-oriented, high-stream gaming. The other is the U-series which is all about asserting its dominance in the field of power efficiency.
The new Ryzen 5000 series is backed mostly by the Ryzen 9 5980HS, and the Ryzen 9 5980HX. The latter is one of the most high-powered, performance-oriented laptops in the market- with the ability to unlock itself when overclocking. The former, on the other hand, has been fine-tuned towards creative laptops. Both of the chips come in with eight CPU cores, which go all the way up to 4.8 Hz.
The CPUs under the U-series also come with 8-core chips, but there are a few with 6-cores too. It is no surprise that AMD makes the best chips when it comes to dominating the competition with performance-oriented machines- but Intel is still the spearhead towards ultraportable space. AMD would definitely try to bring itself into that category with the new Ryzen 5000. Interestingly, AMD has also mentioned that the new 5800U would be able to work for close to 18 hours using battery backup- and 21 hours when it comes to video playback.
