AMD has revealed its latest range of Zen 3-powered APUs for notebooks at CES 2021, with a hint at new GPU architecture coming later this year.
Zen 3 is the architecture that powers last year’s new desktop CPUs from AMD, with many of the gains transitioning to gaming notebooks later this year. Leading the pack is the AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX and 5900HX, both of which offer 8 cores and 16 threads, and base clocks of 3.30GHz. The chips differ when it comes to single-core boost speeds, with the 5980HX reaching 4.8GHz and the 5900HZ maxing out at 4.6GHz, both of which will be great for gaming.
AMD also revealed the full range of Ryzen 5 and 7 CPUs also coming to notebooks, with the major difference being the base and boost clock speeds decreasing down the order. Only the Ryzen 5 5600H will feature a reduced core count, dropping down from the 8 cores shared by the rest of the series to just 6 cores.
