AMD Ryzen 9 7840HX

AMD R9 7840HX

The AMD Ryzen 9 7840HX is a high-end notebook processorfrom the Dragon Range series with 12 cores and hyperthreading (SMT), which means it can process up to 24 threads simultaneously. The CPU uses the current Zen 4 architecture for the 12 cores and clocks these from 2.9 GHz (base clock) up to 5.1 GHz (single-core boost). The CPU offers 12 MB L2 cache and 64 MB L3 cache (i.e. a total of 76 MB cache). The 7840X consists of three chiplets, two CCD clusters with a maximum of 8 CPU cores in 5nm (71mm²) and one IO die in 6nm (122mm²) which are all manufactured at TSMC.

The performance of the Ryzen 9 should be significantly faster than the old Ryzen 9 6980HX (top model Rembrandt H, 8 cores, max 5 GHz). This is achieved by the additional cores, higher clock rate and improved architecture. Compared to the one year older Ryzen 9 7845HX, the 7840HX is clocked 100 MHz lower.

The chip also integrates 4x USB 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) ports (no USB 4), 28 PCIe 5.0 lanes (for GPUs and SSDs), a dual-channel DDR5-5200 memory controller and a small AMD Radeon 610M graphics card (2CUs, 400 - 2200 MHz).

The R9 7840HX is specified with 55 watts TDP and can be configured from 45 to 75 watts (cTDP).
