AMD Unveils Ryzen 7000 Mobile Series With Up To 16 Cores

There’s really no other way to put it: the Ryzen 7000 mobile portfolio is very complicated. Within the new Ryzen 7000 series, all CPU microarchitectures, known as Zen2, Zen3, Zen3+ and Zen4, are combined into one product portfolio. to make matters worse, the series will also use Vega, RDNA2 and RDNA3 visuals.

The most intriguing series will be known as Ryzen 7040 and 7045, built on the most recent Zen4 architecture. Today AMD introduces the Phoenix and Dragon Range series, built for ‘Elite’ ultra-thin laptops and gamers who demand ‘intense’ performance. For the first time, the AMD Dragon Range enables AMD to power laptops with up to 16 cores. This product has limited graphics performance (only 2 computing units), but this is exactly what the desktop series has. Dragon Range uses the same chip, albeit in a different package.

AMD’s Dragon Range is a response to Intel’s Core HX series, which is technically quite similar and uses recycled desktop-class CPUs. Both have a maximum TDP of 55W and are optimized for mobile performance. AMD Ryzen 7045 has up to 16 cores and a boost clock of 5.4 GHz. A maximum configuration has up to 80 MB of L2+L3 cache, which is comparable to desktop silicon. This setup supports the Ryzen 9 7945HX processor.

AMD has confirmed that the maximum TDP of this CPU is 75W. AMD has also confirmed that the Dell Alienware m16 and m18, the ASUS ROG Strix and the Lenovo Legion series laptops will all be integrated with this chip. In addition, there are 12-core 7845, 8-core 7745HX, and 6-core 7645HX processors. These have clock speeds between 5.0 and 5.2 GHz. Sales of the Ryzen 7045 will begin in February, along with Intel’s 13th Gen Core and NVIDIA RTX 40 mobile laptops.

The Ryzen 7040 series, based on the AMD Phoenix architecture, will integrate Zen4 with RDNA3 architecture. In addition, these CPUs will feature AMD’s new XDNA Ryzen AI engine. The series will be limited to eight cores and a maximum clock speed of 5.2 GHz. AMD expects laptop manufacturers to make Phoenix systems with a TDP between 35W and 45W.
