Honor MagicBook Pro key specs leaked: AMD Ryzen 7 4800H or Ryzen 5 4600H APU choice but likely soldered DDR4 2666 MHz RAM
There have been rumors circulating around the Honor MagicBook Pro for a while now, and it appears some of the main components of the upcoming laptop have been leaked. According to the prolific tipster _rogame, the AMD edition of the MagicBook Pro 2020 will give buyers the choice of having either a 6-core Ryzen 5 4600H in their machine or the powerful 8-core Ryzen 7 4800H in charge of processing duties. The new Pro laptop is expected to be revealed at the Honor launch event taking place on July 16.
Along with the Ryzen 4000 APUs, the new AMD-based Honor MagicBook Pro is expected to come with either a high-end 1 TB Samsung PM981a NVMe SSD (Ryzen 7 4800H model) or a 512 GB Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD (Ryzen 5 4600H) that can also offer incredibly quick read and write speeds (however, SSD vendor may vary). In fact, the combination of Renoir chips and superfast SSDs will undoubtedly delight many prospective MagicBook Pro 2020 purchasers, but one more vital leaked component has put a bit of a spanner in the works for some.
It seems Huawei has chosen DDR4 2666 MHz RAM to accompany the other parts in the upcoming Honor MagicBook Pro. While some would be more than satisfied with that, especially as the Ryzen 7 4800H model gets 16 GB of RAM and the Ryzen 5 4600H laptop gets 8 GB RAM, others have bemoaned the fact that the memory speed could have been of a faster variety and that being likely soldered means reduced upgrading capability. But sacrifices have to be made when producing a thin and light laptop, and especially the 8-core AMD-based MagicBook Pro 2020 is shaping up to be an attractive prospect.
