AMD has finally released their much-anticipated Ryzen 4000 series for laptops in H, HS and U variants.
Alongside it, several manufacturers have also announced the laptop models which will host these brand new mobile CPUs. We’re going to give you a quick roundup of the different models on offer from ASUS, Acer, Dell, and MSI.
Although more laptops are likely to be announced soon, these are the ones to pay attention to for now.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14
The ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop has gained a lot of attention surrounding AMD’s new 4000 series. ASUS was among the first to feature the flagship Ryzen 9 4900HS processor. This laptop can also support the Ryzen 7 4800HS processor as well.
The display is 14-inch with 2560x1440p or 1920x1080p resolution and it also comes with either 60 Hz or 120 Hz refresh rate with VESA Adaptive Sync.
On offer in terms of ports are USB 3.1 Gen 1 or 2 Type A and Type C ports as well as a DisplayPort 1.4 output.
ASUS TUF Gaming A15
ASUS’s TUF A15 is another laptop designed to appeal to gamers particularly. This laptop will feature AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H or the Ryzen 5 4600H depending on which option you go for.
This will work with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 or the GTX 1660 Ti discrete graphics card like the Zephyrus which will pack a powerful punch for gamers.
Also on offer here is up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 memory, up to a 1 TB 5400 RPM hard drive and a 1 TB SSD.
The laptop features a 15.6 inch IPS, Full-HD display which comes in either 60 Hz or 144 Hz refresh rate as well as VESA’s Adaptive Sync on top.
The included ports are USB 3.2 Gen 1 or 2 Type A or C, a GbE port and an HDMI output too. There is also a choice of finish for the laptop, Fortress Gray or Bonfire Black – both have very different feels but look great either way.
Acer originally announced they would be using AMD’s Ryzen mobile 4000 processors earlier this year and now they have finally started selling their two models – the Acer Swift 3 and the Acer Aspire 5.
Acer Swift 3
This model is a 14-inch laptop that weighs just 1.17 kilograms making it one of the more portable options on the list. The battery life is also quite impressive which means it’s designed perfectly for those who want to take it with them while they’re on the move.
This laptop will run up to AMD’s Ryzen 7 4700U which features 8 cores. Alongside this will be 8 GB of LPDDR4 and an SSD.
In terms of display, the laptop comes with an IPS Full-HD display panel with thin bezels which makes it perfect for watching media. The connectivity and ports on offer include Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and a fingerprint scanner.
Acer Aspire 5
The Acer Aspire 5 is aimed at those who don’t necessarily want to carry their laptop around. This is a bigger machine with an IPS, Full-HD 15.6 inch screen.
This laptop will feature AMD’s Ryzen 5 4500U mobile CPU which offers 6 cores and up to 24 GB of RAM. There’s also an impressive 1 TB PCIe SSD on offer and a 2 TB hard drive, which makes it great value.
Dell G5 15
First announced back at CES 2020 earlier this year, Dell’s G5 15 laptop will also make use of AMD’s new processors. This laptop will use AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H which features 8 cores with a clock speed between 2.9 GHz and 4.2 GHz.
It comes with DDR4 RAM but how much is not yet clear as the laptop hasn’t been released yet. Storage consists of up to 1 TB SSD and a 2 TB 5400 RPM hard drive.
The graphics side of things is taken care of by AMD’s Radeon RX 5600M discrete GPU which uses Navi architecture.
This is a 15.6 inch gaming laptop with a Full-HD screen and a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz. The ports included are USB-A, USB-C, mDP, HDMI, SD card reader, and a 3.5 audio jack. While it’s not officially released, it’s due to come out sometime early April.
MSI Bravo 15
Last on this list is the MSI Bravo 15 budget gaming laptop. This laptop will feature the Ryzen 5 4600H with 6 cores or the Ryzen 7 4800H which comes with 8 cores – depending on which option you choose. This is paired with AMD’s Radeon RX 5500M discrete GPU for powerful gaming performance.
The laptop comes with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. There’s a 15.6 inch Full-HD IPS display with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and VESA’s Adaptive-Sync technology on offer too.
This is another laptop that hasn’t been officially released yet but it is currently available for pre-order and should be shipping out soon enough.
These are just some of the laptops we’ve seen recently announced to be partnering with AMD’s new Ryzen 4000 mobile series. We will no doubt see more models and manufacturers in the coming months take advantage of these new CPUs from AMD, particularly as the performance seems to be so impressive.
It looks like the AMD Ryzen 4000 series of mobile CPUs has some impressive specifications and core counts on offer – enough to rival the competition at Intel. With laptops packing specifications like these, it looks like gamers have got some more choice on their hands to play with.
