Honor has refreshed the MagicBook 14 2022 with AMD Ryzen 6000 APUs. While Honor already offers the MagicBook 14 2022 with Intel Alder Lake and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, AMD-powered models have RDNA 2-based graphics up their sleeves. The MagicBook 14 2022 starts at a lower price with AMD Ryzen APUs too.

Honor has introduced new MagicBook Pro variants, still dubbed the MagicBook 14 2022. While all models measure 307.51 x 227.56 x 16.9 mm, including the older Intel Alder Lake SKUs, their weight varies between 1.54 kg and 1.58 kg, depending on the model. Also, all configurations have 4.9 mm-wide display bezels, which surround a 3:2 and 14-inch display.

According to Honor, the panel outputs at 2,160 x 1,440 pixels with 300 nits of peak brightness and a 1,500:1 typical contrast ratio. Additionally, the 185 PPI display is TUV Rheinland low blue light certified and relies on a 75 Wh battery that only takes 1:20 hours to recharge from 0-100%.

Now, the MagicBook 14 2022 can be configured with the Ryzen 5 6600H or the Ryzen 7 6800H, two Zen 3+ APUs that feature the Radeon 660M and Radeon 680M, respectively. According to our database, the Radeon 680M only falls a few per cent short of the GeForce MX550. However, the GeForce RTX 2050 is significantly more powerful than the Radeon 680M, or the Radeon 660M in the Ryzen 5 6600H.

Unfortunately, Honor has not confirmed when it plans to launch the MagicBook 14 2022 outside China. Typically, the company takes a few months to do so. For context, the laptop costs as follows in Honor's home market. Incidentally, we have included Intel models for comparison, which launched in May.
