AMD has put details of two 45W processors for laptops online. It concerns the Ryzen 7 2800H and the Ryzen 5 2600H, which are quadcores that feature a Vega 11 and Vega 8 GPU. The processors will be released on October 10.
AMD has added the processors to a list on its website without paying any further attention to it. This shows that the Ryzen 7 2800H and the Ryzen 5 2600H are laptop processors with a tdp of 45 watts and can also be configured on a tdp of 35 to 54 watts. This makes them much more powerful than the hitherto published Ryzen processors for laptops, the models with U-suffix have a tdp of 15 watts and can be configured from 12 to 25 watts.
The integrated gpu of the Ryzen H Variants are not much more powerful than those of U-models. The Ryzen 5 2600H has a Vega 8 GPU with 512 stream processors at up to 1100MHz. This makes the specifications of the GPU equal to those of the economical Ryzen 5 2500U. The Vega 11 GPU of the Ryzen 7 2800H has one compute unit more than the Vega 10 GPU of the Ryzen 7 2700U. However, the new APU’s support faster memory, up to ddr4-3200 instead of ddr4-2400. This can improve graphics performance.
As far as graphical computing power is concerned, the new Ryzen Mobile H variants cannot be measured with, for example, the Intel Kaby Lake G chips with AMD Radeon GPU. They have gpu’s with 20 to 24 compute units. The higher tdp of the H-apus will in particular ensure that the processor cores can run at a high speed for a long time. On paper, the graphical part of the new chips is faster than the UHD 620-gpu that Intel uses in its 45W laptop processors.
AMD may announce the Ryzen 5 2600H and the Ryzen 7 2800H later formally. The specification list reports an appearance date of 10 October. Laptops with the new APU’s have not been announced yet. However, details about an all-in-one computer from HP with the new processors already appeared.
