The AMD Ryzen Mobile APU

The AMD Ryzen Mobile is not just a mobile processor, it is a mobile APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) – a combination of a traditional processor with a GPU, using a System-on-Chip design.

The new Ryzen Mobile APU combines the AMD Zen cores used in desktop Ryzen processors with AMD Vega cores used in the AMD Radeon RX Vega desktop graphics cards.

The First AMD Ryzen Mobile Notebooks

The first brands to adopt the AMD Ryzen Mobile APUs are HP, Lenovo and Acer. They are not introducing new designs though, but adapting their existing designs to fit the new Ryzen Mobile APUs. Let’s take a look at the first three Ryzen Mobile notebooks!

The HP Envy X360

The HP Envy X360 is a 15.6″ convertible laptop (we reviewed an Intel variant earlier). Earlier models are powered by either an Intel Core i7 / Core i5 processor, or an AMD FX-series processor. So it’s easy enough for HP to adapt it to the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U APU.

On top of a 1080p touch screen display, the HP Envy X360 will have dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory, and the option of either an SSD (up to 512 GB) or a 1 TB HD.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 720s

Lenovo will offer both Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U options in the Lenovo IdeaPad 720s. However, the Ryzen Mobile-powered Lenovo IdeaPad 720s will be a slightly smaller 13.3″ version of the current 14″ Intel-powered IdeaPad 720s.

The Ryzen Mobile-powered IdeaPad 720s will be 14% thinner and 26% lighter, while boasting a 1080p display. The downside – it only supports a single DDR4-2133 memory module.

The Acer Swift 3

Acer will also offer both Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U options in the upcoming Swift 3 with a 15″ full HD display.

While the display will be slightly smaller than the one in the existing Intel-powered Acer Swift 3 laptops, the Ryzen Mobile-powered model will be thinner and lighter.
