AMD Ryzen 7 4980U
The AMD Ryzen 7 4980U is a processor for thin and light laptops based on the Renoir architecture. The 4980U integrates all eight cores based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture. They are clocked at 2 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.4 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT for a total of 16 threads. The chip is manufactured on the modern 7 nm TSMC process and partly thanks to it AMD advertises a 2x improved performance per Watt for the Renoir chips.
It is the fastest Ryzen 4000U chip and offers 200 MHz higher clock speeds (both the base clock and the Boost clock) than the older Ryzen 7 4800U. However, the new Zen 3 based Ryzen 7 5800U should be faster thanks to the new architecture.
In addition to the eight CPU cores, the APU also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 8 integrated graphics card with 8 CUs and up to 1950 MHz. The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-3200 and energy efficient LPDDR4-4266 RAM. Furthermore, 8 MB level 3 cache can be found on the chip. See our hub page on the Renoir Processors for more information.
The TDP of the APU is specified at 15 Watt (default) and can be configured from 10 to 25 Watt by the laptop vendor. That means the chip is intended for thin and light laptops (but with fans).
