AMD announced new Ryzen chips for ultrathin notebooks

AMD has unveiled new Ryzen mobile processors for 2-in-1s, convertibles, and ultrathin notebook computers. The company claims that its new mobile CPUs are the world’s fastest CPUs for these devices.

According to the company, these new Ryzen mobile processors provide superior performance compared to the previous AMD mobile processor generation, including:

  • Up to three times the CPU performance
  • Up to 2.3X the GPU performance
  • Up to 58 percent less power consumption.

New in Ryzen mobile processors:

  • New Precision Boost 2 technology, which accelerates processor performance in workloads using from one to many CPU cores, which means that core speeds can be adjusted independently and on the fly according to power availability ad thermal constraints
  • Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR), which boosts performance on systems with enhanced cooling solutions on systems certified for “Ultimate XFR Performance”
