CES 2019: AMD Announces Ryzen 3000 Mobile Processors

CES 2019 has begun and AMD was one of the first companies to make their announcements during the annual event with the reveal of their new Ryzen 3000 mobile processors, the 2nd generation of their Ryzen mobile CPUs for laptops.

The new lineup of mobile processors include six variants in total – with two under their Ryzen 7 series, another two for Ryzen 5, and two more for Ryzen 3. Most of the chips feature four CPU cores and eight threads, except for the two Ryzen 3 chips which only come with four threads and the lowest-end Ryzen 3 only features two cores.

The new lineup also includes two H-series processors, the Ryzen 7 3750H and the Ryzen 5 3550H, both of which have higher TDPs at 35W instead of the 15W of the rest of the lineup. The higher TDP could allow the chips to reach higher boost clocks and maintain them for longer periods of time, making them suitable for gaming laptops when paired with discrete graphics.

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.

Here are all the new Ryzen 3000 mobile processors:
