Crucially, this performance review illustrates the advances AMD has made in catching up and even surpassing Intel. However, with Intel having just announced its riposte in the form of its new Tiger Lake processors, the battle is only just heating up.

85% Asus ZenBook 14 UM425 review (UM425IA – AMD Ryzen 7 4700U)
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
Even more than the ZenBook 14 UX425, this AMD-Ryzen based ZenBook 14 UM425 is an excellent everyday portable laptop with a premium metallic construction, compact and lightweight form-factor, good inputs, IO and screen options, and improved performance and battery life over the Intel variants. Furthermore, this is also more affordable than the Intel models, but beware that it doesn't get the same keyboard, the same base-level display or the same IO.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
