AMD unveiled a wide variety of new processors in its current-gen Ryzen 7000 series, addressing a variety of laptop segments. Additionally, the company showcased its new Radeon RX 7000 series laptop GPUs and announced the new XDNA architecture for AI processing, which will eventually find its way into everything from the company’s dedicated accelerators to hubs. data to consumer PCs. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su delivered the CES 2023 keynote, discussing the computing needs in our world today and the growing prevalence of AI, saying AMD is uniquely well positioned to take advantage of it.


AMD claims leadership with thinner, lighter, and more power-efficient laptops. The company has started using a new product naming convention with the first digit of the product number signifying the generation, the second signifying the relative performance within a series, and the third telling you which generation of Zen architecture it is on. is based. The suffixes continue to indicate power targets, with the U-series rated to run at 15W-28W in thin and light laptops, the mainstream HS-series running at 35-45W, and the high-performance HX models in gaming and business laptops will run at 55W+.

Starting with the most notable CPU models, the new Ryzen 7040 series is the first to feature integrated Ryzen AI hardware based on the new XDNA architecture. AMD claims it’s “the world’s first embedded artificial intelligence engine on an X86 processor.” With up to four concurrent AI streams, these new processors will be able to perform multitasking AI workloads and also offload AI processing from the CPU and GPU, resulting in significant cost savings. of energy. AMD claims its new offerings are up to 50% more efficient than the Apple M2 SoC’s built-in Neural Engine.

The benefits include greatly reducing the impact of AI workloads on battery life and keeping data on device rather than uploading it to a cloud service for processing. AMD suggests that in the future, AI on PC will lead to improved visual quality in games and the advent of much more sophisticated non-player characters. Real-time security and predictive UI customizations are other planned applications.

Microsoft EVP and Chief Product Office Panos Panay joined Su on stage during the keynote to talk about the future use of Ryzen AI, as well as current use cases such as real-time noise cancellation, blur portraits, eye contact correction and automatic framing in video calls.

The AMD Ryzen 7040 series is based on the Zen 4 Core architecture, with an integrated RDNA 3 graphics card. These processors will be manufactured on a 4nm process and AMD is planning 30 hours of battery life. The high-end Ryzen 9 7940HS has eight cores, 16 threads and a boost speed of 5.2 GHz. AMD claims it’s between 11% and 39% faster than the Apple M1 Pro. The mid-range Ryzen 7 7840HS has eight cores and 16 threads, and AMD claims it’s between 23% and 106% better than an Intel Core i7-1280P in content creation workloads. The first laptops with Ryzen 7×40 processors will start shipping in March 2023.

Different processor series within the same generation will cater to different market segments

The high-end Ryzen 7045 series is based on the Zen 4 architecture, using the same designs as the desktop Ryzen 7000 processors. It is made on a 5nm process. The flagship Ryzen 9 7945HX features 16 cores and 32 threads, 80MB total cache memory, 5.4GHz boost speed and 55W+ target TDP. The Ryzen 9 7845HX falls below with 12 cores and 24 threads, while the Ryzen 7 7745HX has 8 cores and 16 threads. There is also a Ryzen 5 7645HX with 6 cores and 12 threads. The platform supports DDR5, PCIe 4.0 RAM. and Wi-Fi 6E.

These processors are aimed at gamers and creators who need power for multitasking, 4K video editing, or 3D rendering. AMD also claims a huge leap forward in mobile gaming performance, delivering up to 18% better single-threaded performance and up to 78% faster all-threaded performance than Cinebench’s Ryzen 6900HX. The first laptops with 7045 processors will start shipping in February 2023, with Alienware, Asus and Lenovo confirmed to be among the first brands to do so.

Further down the stack, AMD’s Ryzen 7035 and 7030 series processors are based on the Zen 3 architecture and there’s also a new entry-level Ryzen 7020 series based on Zen 2.

AMD also unveiled new laptop GPUs. The Radeon RX7600M XT and Radeon RX7600M are aimed at the gaming segment while the Radeon RX7700S and RX7600S are optimized for thin and light laptops. All four GPUs are based on the RDNA3 architecture and use 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Laptops from Alienware, Asus, Lenovo and other OEMs equipped with these GPUs will go on sale in February. Later this year, the company will introduce Smartshift RSR (Radeon Super Resolution) which improves performance by offloading scaling calculations from the GPU to a Ryzen processor.
