AMD Ryzen 7 4800H in a Huawei laptop: Ryzen 4000 Honor MagicBook Pro could be in the works
A noted data-miner has revealed a few details about a future Huawei laptop, with the most exciting detail being the mention of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor. This Renoir APU has been tearing up benchmarks and offering impressive test scores all over the place and would be a great inclusion for a mobile office laptop like the Honor MagicBook Pro.
A few additional tidbits of information about the potential Ryzen 4000 Honor MagicBook were offered by _rogame, including the likelihood that it would come with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD from Western Digital. The latter would come in the form of the PC SN270 NVMe SSD that can offer up to 3,400 MB/s read speeds. The fast storage device would be a great complement to the 8-core, 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 4800H.
The tipster also noted that there was no dGPU mentioned so far, which would mean any potential Ryzen 7 4800H variant of the Huawei Honor MagicBook or MagicBook Pro would possibly have to rely on the APU’s Radeon RX Vega 7 iGPU. This would certainly help keep the cost of the potential Ryzen 4000 laptop down, and the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H-powered Honor MagicBook Pro from last year managed more than adequately with its Vega 10 iGPU.
