Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5 Confirmed To Get Ryzen 7 7800HS and RTX 4050 Mobile

AMD’s 7000 series Laptop CPUs have been showing up for a while in new devices and a new press release for Lenovo confirmed that the latest-gen IdeaPad Pro 5 will be equipped with the upcoming AMD 7000 HS-series of CPUs alongside the upcoming RTX 4050 (Mobile) from NVIDIA.

Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5 Will Come With Ryzen 7 7800HS and RTX 4050 Mobile

Lenovo, in a press release, has confirmed that the IdeaPad Pro 5 (Gen 8) will come with the latest Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. This includes the Ryzen 7 7800HS and Ryzen 5 7640HS for the 16-inch model and the 14-inch model also gets an additional option for the Ryzen 7 7735HS. The 16-inch model is the one that comes with the option for a dedicated GPU with the RTX 4050 or the RTX 3050 to choose from.

While I don’t know the exact specs for the Ryzen 7000 HS-series of CPUs, as I’ve mentioned in a previous article, these are expected to max out at 16 cores (32 threads) and are expected to take Intel’s 13th Gen H-series of CPUs, head on. So, I am expecting the 7800HS to be a 16-core CPU with excellent performance.

For the RTX 4050 Mobile, I can’t say much right now, but I do expect the performance to stay close to the RTX 3060. However, it all but confirms that the RTX 4000-series Mobile GPUs should be announced next month during CES 2023. While the RTX 4070 and higher should be used mostly in gaming laptops, the RTX 4050 and the RTx 4060 should mostly come to creator-focused laptops such as the Ideapad Pro 5.

The specification sheet also confirms that the 7000 HS-series are shifting to the Radeon 700M internal graphics (although for some reason Lenovo will also ship some of them with the 600M) which should bring some noticeable improvements over the last-gen 600M graphics, that were already a lot better than Intel’s Iris Xe. This also indicates that Intel themselves may be switching to more powerful internal graphics for their 13th Gen CPUs.
