COMPUTEX 2017 | AMD talks up Ryzen Mobile, showcases more laptops
AMD's much awaited Ryzen platform has been out for around 3 months now, but it was only yesterday that the first Ryzen-powered laptop, the Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC, was revealed. Today at Computex, the Taiwanese company revealed more AMD-powered notebooks and shared more about their ambitions for the mobile platform in 2018.
While the first machines to use Ryzen have been rather large gaming-focused laptops, AMD is not stopping there: thin and light, consumer, and 2-in-1 convertibles are also on the docket. Ryzen is touting On-Die "Vega" Graphics coming to mobile PCs in the second half of 2017 through the first half of 2018. On stage AMD promised 50% CPU gains, 40% GPU gains and 50% less power compared to a current 7th Gen APU (Bristol Ridge).
The two additional AMD-powered laptops don't use Ryzen, but instead AMD FX APUs (AMD refers to CPUs with on-die graphics as APUs) and RX 500 series GPUs. Photos of the Acer Nitro 5 (RX 550) and Dell Inspiron Gaming 15 (RX 560) are available below.
