Fans of Hewlett-Packard's Omen family of gaming laptops will be happy to know that an all-new design is on the way for 2020. The company was a little bit premature with the unveil of the new look via its UK website, but the information is still visible via Google Cache. For starters, there appear to be thinner bezels around the top and sides of the display panel the time around, which is a nice touch for the Omen 15. In addition, the display no longer leaves an "air gap" between its bottom edge and the chassis when opened. The touchpad is larger this time around, and there are four independent RGB lighting zones for the island-style keyboard. The RGB lighting effects are controlled... Read more...
AMD launched its well-received Ryzen 4000 mobile processors last month, and a number of OEMs jumped on the bandwagon. MSI sat out the initial round of announcements, but is coming out swinging with its Bravo gaming laptop series. MSI’s new Bravo 15 and Bravo 17 gaming laptops trade out the NVIDIA GeForce RTX Super GPUs found in its latest Comet Lake-H laptops in favor of AMD Radeon RX 5500M (Navi) discrete graphics. The primary difference between the two machines is that the former comes with a 15.6-inch 120Hz Full HD FreeSync display, while the latter is a bit larger at 17.3 inches (while still carrying a Full HD resolution and 120Hz FreeSync spec).  The Bravo...

Sometime later this year, AMD will unveil its Zen 3 CPU architecture with a new Ryzen 4000 series of desktop CPUs (not to be confused with AMD's Ryzen 4000 series of mobile chips based on Zen 2). The question is, will these next-gen parts still leverage the AM4 socket? It certainly seems that way, based on everything that's been said up to this point. The latest bit of evidence comes from Scenker XMG, a PC maker based in Germany that recently launched its Apex 15 laptop, a bodacious desktop replacement system configurable with up to a Ryzen 9 3950X with 16 cores and 32 threads. The motherboard inside the Apex 15 is based on AMD's B450 chipset, which has been "confirmed to be able to support future... Read more...
The pace of progress is swift these days over at AMD. Since launching its first generation Zen architecture three years ago, there have been two more iterations, Zen+ and Zen 2, with Zen 3 on track to release this year. AMD has not yet announced an official launch date, but the word out of the rumor mill is that Zen 3 will debut in the fall. Zen 3 will usher in AMD's Ryzen 4000 series of desktop processors. Not to be confused with AMD's Ryzen 4000 series of mobile CPUs, which are based on the company's Zen 2 architecture (and paired with Vega graphics), the desktop chips will leverage AMD's next-generation architecture and TSMC's enhanced 7-nanometer manufacturing. It gets a little confusing... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is no stranger to using Ryzen processors in its desktops and laptops, and the company is further showing its confidence in AMD with the launch of new ProBook 445 G7 and 455 G7 business laptops. Both machines are powered by AMD's new Ryzen 4000 processors, which feature integrated Radeon Vega GPUs. The smaller of the two is the ProBook 445 G7, which features a 14-inch display available in HD and Full HD resolutions, all of which feature an anti-glare coating. Base systems come with the Ryzen 3 4300U APU, while the step-up option is the Ryzen 5 4500U. Those that require a bit more power at their disposal can opt for the Ryzen 7 4700U (2GHz base clock, 4.2GHz max boost).... Read more...
Last month, AMD fired a shot across Intel's bow with the launch of the Ryzen 4000 series of mobile processors. Promising strong performance across-the-board, a potent Radeon Vega-based IGP onboard, and respectable power efficiency (see our ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 review), AMD is poised to make some big gains in the laptop market. However, when even the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 9 4900H isn't enough for your mobile needs, the folks over at ORGIN PC have something decidedly more powerful in mind. The company announced today that its EON15-X gaming laptop is now available with up to a Ryzen 9 3900X processor. As you probably already know, this is a desktop-class processor with a TDP of...

We first got our hands on the AMD Ryzen 4000-powered ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 during CES early this year. If you are unfamiliar with the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14, it is a new breed of thin and light gaming notebook, that packs the performance of a much larger desktop-replacement type machine into a slimmer and sleeker 14”, sub-20mm class notebook. There will be multiple models of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 available when it hits store shelves in the coming days, but at the heart of the particular system we’ll be showing you here today is the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS 8-core / 16-thread processor. Although the processor features on-board Radeon Vega graphics, our ROG Zephyrus G14 also kicks... Read more...
Two weeks ago, AMD officially launches its Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 mobile processor family, which is available in both H-Series (gaming/creative laptops) and U-Series (premium ultraportables). AMD's Ryzen 4000 processor family represents AMD's most comprehensive and performance-packed counter to Intel's mobile Core processors in years, and Acer is among the first to fully embrace them. Acer today has announced the Swift 3 (SF314-42) and Swift 5 (A515-44) laptops. Starting off with the former, it's a thin-and-light laptop featuring AMD's 8-core/8-thread Ryzen 7 4700U processor. This processor features 12MB of cache along with base/boost clocks of 2GHz and 4.1GHz respectively. The Ryzen... Read more...
AMD has been enjoying a good run with its Ryzen family of processors, and has garnered particular praise for its most recent Ryzen 3000 processors. In the tech industry, everyone is always looking forward to the next best thing, and in the case of AMD consumer desktop processors, that means the Ryzen 4000 family. Not to be confused with the Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 mobile processor family that officially launched last week, Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs are based on newer AMD's new Zen 3 microarchitecture. A new report coming from WCCFTech claims that we won't see these processors until October 2020. For comparison, the Ryzen 3000 desktop family launched in July 2019. This information... Read more...

AMD announced its Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors a couple of months back at CES 2020. The information disseminated at AMD’s press conference, however, was relatively high-level, and as it turns out, wasn’t quite complete. Since the show, we’ve been made privy to much more information regarding the Ryzen 4000 series mobile line-up, including a couple of new processor models that haven’t been officially disclosed just yet. Though the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors won’t be widely available for a few more weeks, some of AMD’s partners are going to begin taking pre-orders for notebooks powered by these new processors. As such, AMD is... Read more...
According to a recent leak, the very first Ryzen 4000 Renoir-based laptops could be launching as soon as next Monday. However, these aren't the only Ryzen 4000 processors on the docket from AMD; a new leak confirms that Ryzen 4000 desktop-based APUs will be arriving soon. First of all, let's clear up any potential confusion. These Ryzen 4000 APUs will use the AM4 socket and will be based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture. They also feature integrated Radeon GPUs. The forthcoming Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs, however, will be based on 7nm Zen 3 architecture and do not include onboard graphics. According to the leak from _rogame, the unnamed Ryzen 4000 APU has a stated frequency of 3.5GHz and... Read more...
AMD first announced its Ryzen 4000 family of Zen 2 mobile processors back at CES 2020, and it appears that the wait for shipping laptops featuring these new chips will soon be over. So far, AMD has announced Renoir processors ranging from the Ryzen 3 4300U (4-core/4-thread) to the Ryzen 7 4800H (8-core/16-thread). Seen below is the [official] lineup that AMD has already announced for the Ryzen 4000 mobile Zen 2 CPU family: Ryzen 7 4800H: 8 cores / 16 threads, 2.9GHz to 4.2GHz, 8MB L3 cache, 45W TDP Ryzen 5 4600H: 6 cores / 12 threads, 3GHz to 4GHz, 8MB L3 cache, 45W TDP Ryzen 7 4800U: 8 cores / 16 threads, 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, 8MB L3 cache, 15W TDP Ryzen 7 4700U: 8 cores / 8 threads, 2GHz...
