This is our first review of AMD's Ryzen Mobile 4000 U-series processors, the low power variants intended for slim, light, ultraportable laptops. Our exploration starts with the mid-range Ryzen 5 4500U, a 6 core, 6 thread part with 6 Vega GPU units. All with a default TDP of 15W.
At half the power consumption
Killer performance with Zen 2
Will the Zen 2-based HEDT chips arrive next month?
Zen 2 is looking good
VRM design further suggests AMD is going to up the core count with Ryzen 3000
Looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer for the next Threadripper
Intel is also rumored to release a new HEDT platform mid next year
Double the cores, higher IPC, more power savings
It's likely they'll announce their Zen 2 architecture with 7nm Ryzen
Up to 13 percent improvement in IPC for scientific tasks
The end of the Ridge?
