Honor has announced 45 W Renoir versions of the MagicBook Pro, its MacBook Pro 16 lookalike. Unveiled alongside refreshed editions of the MagicBook 14 and MagicBook 15, the MagicBook Pro will be available with up to a Ryzen 7 4800H APU, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD.
Alex Alderson,

It has only been a few months since Honor released a new version of the MagicBook Pro, its attempt at a MacBook Pro 16. However, whereas Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at US$2,399, the MagicBook Pro will retail for CNY 4,699 (~US$672). Honor already sells its 16.1-inch machine with the Core i5-10210U or the Core i7-10510U, but these 15 W Comet Lake-U series processors pale in comparison to the 45 W Renoir options that Honor has announced.

The MagicBook Pro will come with 16 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD regardless of the model you purchase. Honor has unveiled two processor options, the Ryzen 5 4600H and the Ryzen 7 4800H. Unlike the Renoir options for the MagicBoook 14 and MagicBook 15, both these 45 W Renoir APUs support Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT). The Ryzen 5 4600H is a 6 core APU, while the Ryzen 7 4800H has two additional cores and four more threads.

The Ryzen 5 model will retail for CNY 4,699 (~US$672) from July 30, but Honor is offering CNY 200 (~US$29) off as part of a pre-sale that begins today. Similarly, the Ryzen 7 edition currently costs CNY 4,999 (~US$715), which is CNY 200 (~US$29) cheaper than the CNY 5,199 (~US$744) for which the SKU will eventually sell.

The Ryzen editions of the MagicBook Pro retain all the other features of their Intel counterparts besides a dedicated GPU option, though. Namely, they have 56 Wh batteries, and 1080 displays with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
