A little after Envy's new model HP Which is revealed early on the set, we get more details about a pair of processors RYZEN For the mobile market - including a small taste of the performance that awaits us
The coming months are expected to be very interesting in the laptop market, with new models that will be placed on us both from Intel's direction and from the direction of Intel AMD - In hardware combinations that we have not yet encountered in the field, and which can provide us with much higher quality standards for performance in the various categories.
We already know that the first models in the Raven Ridge family AMD, The first at 14 nm and based on the architecture of theZen, Will soon arrive with up to four physical cores and graphics cores from the XNUMXth generationVega, Packed together in relatively low and competitive power envelopes. All of this feels more and more tangible as the latest results of performance tests present us with information on a pair of specific models of the company, and give significant hope about the technical capabilities we will receive.
The 3DMark 11 test results for the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U produce a fairly optimistic picture with results of approximately 6,500 points in the physical processing test (which attest to the performance of the general processing cores) similar to those of the Core i7-8550U square Intel's cores, at least in some products, and a score of 3,700-4,000 points in the graphics test, leaving the common graphics core from Intel far behind and approaching the result obtained by the dedicated GeForce 150MX card NVIDIA (About 4,400-4,700 points).
We still do not know what the pricing will be AMD And what will be the actual thermal envelope (or practical power consumption) of the models on the way, but right now Raven Ridge will be a quality solution for those who do not need an advanced discrete graphics card in their mobile system but want more than the base it provides Intel In its HD / UHD Graphics - and without compromising on the general processing capabilities of course, or on a variety of modern hardware features such as DDR4 And compatibility to M.2 interfaces.
We hope to get first official details as soon as possible - so that we can see the reduction in the trend of guesswork and speculation.
