While the initial preferences for the processors for the gaming laptops have always been Intel, things are changing with the passing days. AMD has recently added the new Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HS to the Ryzen 4000 list and the gamers are losing their chill. This transformation is expected to bring along faster base clocks in comparison to the existing Intel processors.
Initially, AMD didn’t have a lot to compete with but it does seem like that things could be changing this year with the release of the Renoir Ryzen 4000 APUs. Prior reports from CES 2020 keynote discussion revealed that it is likely that AMD is going to launch the Ryzen 9 SKU this year too.
But, recent reports have unravelled more information and reports surrounding the Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HS devices and their possible configuration competing against the Intel’s core i9-9880H.
As per some of the revealed information and reports, it has been clarified that the Ryzen 9 4900H has been integrated with 8 cores and 16 threads but comes with a higher base and the boost clocks. The same are featured at 3.3 GHz and 4.4 GHz respectively. Additionally, the device also packs in 8 Vega cores on an offer clocked at a frequency of 1750 MHz. The device has also been rated at 45W TDP. The reports further suggest that the one factor that differentiates it from the HS processor is the fact that the OEM can configure it at 35 TDP.
Coming round to the Ryzen HS series, specifically that of the 4900 HS, the devices have been integrated to have special APUs, a lot similar to what Intel performed with the Project Athena. These HS APUs come with a default power setting of 35W with the OEMs responsible for sustained performance at this specific TDP. This specific feature also indicates the fact that AMD will be working alongside a few select OEM for the design and testing purposes.
The Ryzen 9 4900HS differs a bit from its precursor, the 4900H as it contains 8 cores, 16 threads and comes with a base and boost clock of 3 GHz and 4.3 GHz respectively. The device also clocks in a vega 8 iGPU at 1750 MHz with an entire package rating of 35W TDP.
The Ryzen 9 4900HS does have a lot of sustainable benefits and gains in comparison to the Intel variants. It shows and impacts the gains on majority of the benchmarks, only lagging behind on a few. The device has also performed quite graciously when it came to eSports and the AAAgames, making this a look good already.
The final results and the outlooks are still in the process to be judged until the same is finally launched for people to get their hands on them.
