This is something some of us may have been looking forward to for some months now, and that is AMD finally showing off new APUs based on Ryzen and Vega. The code name for these products had been Raven Ridge, but now they are officially AMD Ryzen mobile processors. Only two APUs have been announced today, both with 4 cores/8 threads and a nominal 15 W TDP. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U has a max clock of 3.8 GHz on the CPU, 1300 MHz on the GPU, and 10 Vega compute units while the Ryzen 5 2500U has a max clock of 3.6 GHz on the CPU, 1100 MHz on the GPU, and only 8 compute units. These APUs will also feature Precision Boost 2, for accelerating performance depending on workload, and mobile Extended Frequency Range (mXFR) to raise performance when the cooling allows it.

Compared to the previous generation of AMD APUs, these give up to three times, the CPU performance, 2.3 times the GPU performance, while using as much as 58% less power. AMD also compared the Ryzen 7 2700U against the competition, with some of the results shown in the video below (along with the system configurations at the end), and claim up to 44% better multi-threaded CPU performance and up to 161% more graphics power.

AMD has also announced that systems using Ryzen mobile processors will be available in the coming weeks from Acer, HP, and Lenovo with more news coming from Dell and other OEMs in early 2018.
