AMD launches the “worlds best mobile processors”, their Ryzen 5000 Mobile Series

AMD has revealed what they call the “World’s Best Mobile Processors”, bringing their Ryzen 5000 series of processors to mobile devices, delivering their Zen 3 architecture to the laptop market. 

With their Zen 3 powered Ryzen 5000 mobile processors, AMD delivers up to eight cores and sixteen threads and up to four times as much L3 cache access per core than their Ryzen 4000 series processors. This additional L3 cache access will accelerate many workloads, with gaming being one of the primary beneficiaries. 

With their Ryzen 5000H series of mobile processors, AMD targets elite gaming and productivity-focused users, with extreme series HX and HS series models for those who desire peak performance and heightened efficiency respectively. With their Ryzen 5000U series of processors, AMD targets higher performance levels and maximised efficiency levels for ultrathin products. 

With their top-tier Ryzen 5980HX mobile processor, AMD can deliver a 23% increase in single-threaded performance over their fastest Ryzen 4000 series mobile processor and a 17% increase in multi-threaded performance. This makes the Ryzen 5000 series of mobile processors great for portable gaming and workstation use and makes the Ryzen 5000 mobile series a worthy generational leap for the company.

With their Ryzen 7 5800U Mobile processor, AMD has also delivered a 16% increase in single-threaded performance and a 14% increase in multi-threaded performance over their last-generation Ryzen 7 4800U processor. Not bad given the fact that both CPUs have the same TDP limits. 

AMD has replaced almost every Ryzen 4000 series processor with a new Zen 3 equivalent. That said, some Zen 2 processors remain as part of the Ryzen 5000U series, such as the Ryzen 7 5700U, Ryzen 5 5500U and Ryzen 5 5300U.

With all of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors, AMD has delivered higher core clock speeds than their 4000 series counterparts and enabled simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) on all parts. That said, only some of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series models will benefit from the company’s Zen 3 architecture.

Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors that use AMD’s Zen 3 architecture will benefit from having access to 2x as much L3 cache as before. Better still, Zen 3 unifies all of the cores within AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series processors into a single core complex (CCX), giving each core direct access to the CPU’s combined pool of L3 cache. This gives AMD’s Zen 3 powered Ryzen 5000 series mobile CPU cores direct access to up to four times as much L3 cache as before.

Compared to Intel’s current product offerings, AMD has claimed performance leadership, though we will have to wait for reviews to see if AMD’s statements are true.
