There may only be one laptop currently shipping with Ryzen Mobile processors, but more are on the way… and more Ryzen Mobile chips are on the way too.

Last year AMD launched the Ryzen 5 2500U and Ryzen 2700U processors for laptops. Now the company is adding lower-end Ryzen 3 chips.

AMD is also introducing the first Ryzen Mobile Pro processors.

All of the Ryzen Mobile chips are 15 watt processors designed to compete with Intel’s 8th-gen Core U-series processors including the Core i5-8250U and Core i7-8550U). But AMD’s chips feature Radeon Vega graphics, which could give them an edge in GPU-heavy tasks. AMD’s chips also tend to be competitively priced.

Generally speaking the higher the model number, the higher the performance. Here’s an overview of AMD’s 2018 Ryzen Mobile lineup:

  • Ryzen 7 2700U – 2.2 GHz base/3.8 GHz turbo, 4 core/8-thread CPU with 10 graphics compute units, 1.3 GHz max GPU clock, 6MB cache
  • Ryzen 5 2500U – 2 GHz base/3.6 GHz turbo, 4-core/8-thread CPU with 8 graphics compute units, 1.1 GHz max GPU speed, 6MB cache
  • Ryzen 3 2300U – 2 GHz base/3.4 GHz turbo, 4-core/4-thread CPU with 6 graphics compute units, 1.1 GHz max GPU speed, 6MB cache
  • Ryzen 3 2200U – 2.5 GHz base/3.4 GHz turbo, 2-core/4-thread CPU with 3 graphics compute units, 1 GHz max GPU speed, 5MB cache

New AMD Ryzen PRO mobile processors are also on the way, with security and performance enhancements for commercial and enterprise customers. There will be PRO versions of all Ryzen Mobile chips except the Ryzen 3 2200U.

  1. I’d be very interested to see these in some Mini PC applications. Something like the NUC would be nice. But if the GPU performance is enough, I think they would have lots of success getting these into a Video game console-sized PC, and sell them as “Steam boxes”.

    1. yes it would be nice to see these chips in a mini pc (mini-stx) configuration, and not the usual configuration of eMMc but a solid performer;
      AMD Ryzen 3 2300U
      8gb of DDR 2400
      256 SSD (pci-e ver)
      for a reasonable price of max $250…it can be done if they want to….all the best Paul.
