Better Battery Life
As pointed out earlier, AMD claims that the Ryzen Mobile APUs will deliver 58% lower power consumption, compared to the 7th Generation AMD APUs. Their benchmark results show battery life improvements from 15% to 104%.
The AMD Ryzen Mobile is designed for ultra-thin notebooks. The AMD Ryzen Mobile APU itself will have a 24% thinner Max Z-Height. That may not mean a lot, but when it comes to mobile devices, every millimetre counts.
Here is a spider chart that neatly summarises the performance advantage of the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U over the Intel Core i7-8550U.
There is no doubt that the AMD Ryzen Mobile APUs are AMD’s most advanced mobile processor. This isn’t hyperbole. It’s a fact that is backed by what we have seen with their Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 desktop processors, as well as their Radeon RX Vega desktop graphics cards.
Finally, after many years of producing mobile APUs with lacklustre performance and high power consumption, AMD may finally have a thoroughbred in the Ryzen Mobile. We can’t wait to see the ultra-thin notebooks that will use these new APUs!
