We must say, we came away pretty impressed with what Huawei had to offer with its MateBook X Pro in our recent review, which happens to pack in a lot of current-generation hardware into a thin and light frame for not a lot of money (at least compared to its rivals). The MateBook X Pro shows that Huawei is getting serious about the U.S. market, and it is further extending the reach with the MateBook D. Whereas the MateBook X Pro makes uses of 8th generation Intel Core processors, the MateBook D instead uses an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U APU that incorporates Radeon Vega 8 graphics. You can read our review of a system with the Ryzen 5 2500U installed right here. The MateBook D will... Read more...
When we launched our early preview look at AMD Ryzen Mobile performance with the new HP Envy x360 15z laptop last week, we expected it would pull in a few eyeballs. Our benchmark results were likely some of the first anyone had seen that showed what AMD's Ryzen core CPU architecture, coupled with its Radeon RX Vega GPU on the same piece of silicon, could do versus a plethora of Intel 7th and 8th Gen Core series laptops. We wanted to paint a detailed picture of its performance characteristics across various workloads and answer a few other questions a long the way regarding other aspects, like battery life. But in the end, we were left with a few questions as well, after testing the model we picked... Read more...
AMD has had a banner year thanks to the launch of the many incarnations of its Zen processor architecture (Ryzen, Ryzen Threadripper, EPYC), as well as its Vega graphics cards (Radeon RX Vega 56, Radeon RX Vega 64). Now, however, the company is set to launch the combination of those standout architectures in a single die linked together with its Infinity Fabric. The result is what's internally known at AMD as Raven Ridge, and now will simply be referred to as Ryzen Mobile. There are two initial chips in the processor family that AMD is announcing today: the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U. Both processors feature four cores capable of executing 8 threads with SMT. However, there are differences... Read more...
AMD took the PC market by storm earlier this year with its Zen-based processor families. We've seen Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 processors for the mainstream market, and Ryzen Threadripper for enthusiasts. Zen has even filtered into the enterprise market with EPYC processors. One market where Zen hasn't yet been released is in the mobile sector, but that will soon change. A product data sheet that was found on Hewlett-Packard's website tells the tale of an upcoming Envy x360 notebook (15-bq101na). Powering that notebook is AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U processor, which is based on AMD's Raven Ridge platform. The mobile processor has a base frequency of 2GHz and can boost up to 3.6GHz. We can also see...
