AMD has unveiled its next generation of laptop processors, complete with a new naming scheme. The Ryzen AI 9 HX 390 and Ryzen AI 9 365 come with AMD's new Zen 5 CPU cores and a Radeon 800M series iGPU based on the RDNA 3.5 architecture.

AMD has unveiled its next generation of laptop processors at Computex 2024. Formerly referred to as "Strix Point" in previous leaks, they come with an entirely new naming scheme, which was highlighted by an earlier leak. For now, the company has shown off only two SKUs, the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 and Ryzen AI 9 365. The decision to jump directly to Ryzen AI 300 stems from the fact that Strix Point SKUs use a third-generation NPU. Subsequent models will use the a new naming convention explained by the image below. Unfortunately, there's no word about how the former "H" and "U" SKUs will be called.

The Ryzen AI 9 370 HX is a 12-core, 24-thread CPU with a base/boost clock of 2.0/5.1 GHz, TDP of 15-54 Watts, and 36 MB cache. It comes with a Radeon 890M GPU based on the RDNA 3.5 architecture, complete with 16 CUs and a max boost clock of 2.9 GHz. The Ryzen AI 9 365 comes with 10 cores, 24 threads, 5.0 GHz boost clock and a Radeon 880M GPU with 12 CUs. Both models are manufactured on TSMC's 4 nm node and come with a brand new Zen 5 CPU.

Strix Point comes with what AMD calls the "World's most powerful NPU for AI PCs", offering 50 TOPS of computing power. The company claims it is up to 5x faster than the Ryzen 9 8945HS and Intel Core Ultra 7 155H (labelled incorrectly as the Core Ultra 9 185H).

Performance-wise the Ryzen 9 AI HX 370 is anywhere between 4-73% faster than the Core Ultra 9 185H and 9-98% faster than the Apple M3 in productivity applications. Similarly, AMD boasts of up to a 60% performance boost against Qualcomm's new Snapdragon X Elite SoC.

AMD's Radeon iGPU has historically dominated the gaming space, and that legacy continues with Strix Point. The Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 is 28-47% faster than the Intel Arc iGPU found on the Core Ultra 9 185H in popular titles such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 6 and Cyberpunk 2077.
