Honor has confirmed that it will be releasing a Ryzen 4000 Renoir version of the MagicBook Pro 2020. Rumoured to be the Ryzen 7 4800H, the Renoir edition of the MagicBook Pro 2020 will be joined by Honor's first gaming laptop.

Honor refreshed the MagicBook Pro last month, a laptop that leans heavily on the design of the MacBook Pro 16. While Honor released AMD and Intel versions of its 16.1-inch laptop last year, the company only announced Intel Comet Lake editions of the MagicBook Pro 2020. George Zhao, the President of Honor, has confirmed that Ryzen 4000 Renoir models are on their way.

According to ITHome, which interviewed Zhao at an Honor Life event earlier this week, the Ryzen versions of the MagicBook Pro 2020 will arrive in the next month or so. Ming did not confirm which Ryzen 4000 series processors Honor plans to use in the MagicBook Pro 2020 series. If previous rumours are correct, then we should expect Honor to release at least a Ryzen 7 4800H version of the device. Additionally, this model is said to feature 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD. Presumably, Honor will offer other configurations, too.

Separately, Ming stated that also plans to release a gaming laptop. Based on the report published by ITHome, then Ming implied that this gaming laptop would feature Ryzen 4000 processors too. If the company has gone down the Ryzen route for its first gaming laptop, then it would seem that the company would be limited to choosing up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. Nonetheless, the Asus TUF A15 and Eluktronics RP-15 have already shown that the Ryzen 7 4800H and RTX 2060 can handle all modern triple-A games at decent framerates and quality settings.
