AMD announced the introduction of the AMD Ryzen™ mobile processor, previously codenamed the “Raven Ridge” mobile APU, providing leadership performance and a complete entertainment experience with optimal efficiency for premium 2-in-1s, convertibles and ultrathin notebook computers.

With a configurable 15-watt TDP, the AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U and AMD Ryzen™ 5 2500U processors combine the architecture of award-winning “Zen” x86 cores–featuring AMD SenseMI Technology processor-level intelligence–with revolutionary Radeon “Vega” graphics in a System-on-Chip design to achieve unprecedented ultrathin notebook performance. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is the fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, with up to 44% more multi-threaded CPU performance as well as up to 161% more graphics performance than the competition.

“We promised to bring innovation and competition back to every segment of the PC market in 2017, and today marks the fulfillment of that promise for consumer notebooks following our successful roll-out across the consumer, commercial and high-end desktop markets earlier this year,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Group, AMD. “Ryzen™ mobile processors offer leadership performance for everyday activities, multi-tasking, and advanced workloads alike, all while enabling amazing battery life. We are pleased to deliver the world’s fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks, offering consumers the opportunity to get the most out of their digital lives through our OEM partners’ notebook designs.”

Powerful Performer

Consisting of up to 4 cores and 8 threads, Ryzen™ mobile processors include AMD SenseMI Technology and are designed for leadership performance in a sleek form factor. The AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U processor is the world’s fastest for ultrathin notebooks, featuring a 15W nominal processor TDP3,4. In addition, AMD Ryzen™ mobile processors provide blazing fast performance compared to the previous AMD mobile processor generation, with:

  • Up to 3X the CPU performance.
  • Up to 2.3X the GPU performance.
  • Up to 58% less power consumption.

Ryzen mobile processors also introduce for the first time:

  • New Precision Boost 2 technology, which accelerates processor performance in workloads using from one to many CPU cores.
  • Mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR), which raises sustained performance in notebooks with great cooling solutions on notebooks certified for “Ultimate XFR Performance”.

Completely Entertaining

The AMD Ryzen™ Processor with Radeon™ Vega Graphics provides elite GPU performance:

  • Delivers smooth and playable framerates at 1080p in popular eSports titles such as League of Legends™, Overwatch™, CS:GO™ and DOTA™ 2, in an ultrathin form factor.
  • Ready to power the most advanced & beautiful displays including HDR, Radeon™ FreeSync™ 2, and 4K monitors.

Efficiently Designed:

  • AMD is ahead of pace for its 25X20 initiative, with the AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U processor enabling a 5.86X energy efficiency improvement since the beginning of the initiative.
  • AMD Ryzen™ mobile processor is targeting up to a 2X battery life improvement.

AMD Ryzen™ Processor with Radeon™ Vega Graphics:

Model Cores/Threads Max Clock (GHz) Graphics Compute Units Max GPU Clock (MHz) cTDP (Watts)
Ryzen™ 7 2700U with Radeon™ Vega10 Graphics 4/8 3.8 10 1300 15W Nominal
