AMD unveils Ryzen 4000 series processors

AMD unveils Ryzen 4000 series processors
Ryzen 4000

Live in Vegas, AMD released some products in 2019 with the 7nm. From the desktop market with the introduction to the AMD RYZEN, the high-end desktop workstation with the Ryzen Threadripper, and the new Radeon graphics technology that brought a huge improvement to the franchise of GPU's. And finally with the data centre the AMD Epyc. AMD this year is promising to double performances. AMD has had collaborations with various manufactures in line with their integrated GPU's from the new Xbox console the Xbox Series X to the new Mac Pro with the Radeon Pro Vega II Duo, with the Surface Laptop 3 which also integrated AMD's Ryzen 7 Microsoft edition processor, to the PlayStation 4.

Google Stadia also had a partnership with AMD to build a custom GPU for Google Stadia. Turning to 2020, AMD has brought the best to both gamers and creators. For gamers, it's all about higher performance GPU and CPU and to content creators it about capability and productivity. AMD is claiming to have produced the best laptop processor ever built. This was achieved by putting in the best ZEN 2 high-performance CPU cores, alongside incorporating the 7nm technology and making really innovative design to ensure power-efficient is possible. With all these technologies put together, the performance achieved is disruptive. Thus, AMD releases the new 3rd Gen AMD RYZEN 4000 MOBILE PROCESSORS.

CES 2020

Being the very first 7nm x86 mobile processor and in this form fits into ultra-slim laptops, it comes with 8 Zen 2 cores and 16 threads with a base speed of 1.8GHz which gets a boost to 4.2GHz. And all of this is based on their vega architecture but this around has up to 59% better performance than the previous generation processors. In comparison to previous Intel processors, I think Intel has taken a huge leap ahead of AMD processors. Performance from Intel processors can immediately be told to be better than AMD processors. In the gaming line, AMD is offering three designations from AMD FreeSync on a stutter and tear-free experience for users, AMD FreeSync Premium which gives a 120Hz+ refresh rate with LFC ( Low Framerate Compensation) and the AMD FreeSync Premium Pro with 120Hz+, LFCA and HDR. And with their well known Adrenalin software, AMD launched their 2020 edition last December. It delivered an average of a 12% performance uplift and over 20 new and enhanced features.

The modern UI that came with it provides a new view across desktops, mobile and PC. With the new feature "Radeon Boost", provides higher frame rates in high movement scenes so you can have smoother game experience. Coming to the most important part of gaming, the HARDWARE. AMD RADEON RX 5000 SERIES was AMD's previous GPU with enhanced efficiency and now introducing in 2020 the newest member of the 5000 series the RADEON RX 5600 XT. This hardware is built on a RDNA architecture with 36 compute units and with a game clock of 1375Mhz up to a boost of 1560MHz with a memory type of GDDR6 with 6GB. It was quite disappointing how AMD compared their new GPU to NVIDIA's Gtx 1660ti which technically is one of their old GPU's but fairly matches up with AMD newly released GPU.

CES 2020

The series of GPU's released is the 5600 series for ultimate 1080p gaming and the 5700 series for ultimate 1440p gaming. And for pricing, the 5600 will be available on January 21st at $279 worldwide. The 5600 is going to be available on mobile very soon. And in the first half of 2020 the 5600M and 5700M to a notebook. And for Desktops AMD is releasing the AMD RYZEN 7 4800H processor for gamers and content creators with 8 cores and 16 thread with a base speed of 2.9GHz with a boost to 4.2GHz. And this processor will be available in February of this year. AMD is also introducing a technology in-game called SmartShift that improves frame rate. Would AMD processors be the future alongside their GPUS?
