A refreshed version of Huawei’s MateBook D laptop lineup was spotted on 3DMark, featuring the 15W Ryzen 7 4700U and a 512GB Samsung NVMe SSD. While it matches the Redmibook lineup with its Renoir APU, we have no word on pricing just yet.

Huawei’s MateBook D appears to be the next laptop lineup to sport AMD Renoir hardware. Tipster @_rogame spotted a 3DMark listing for a refreshed MateBook D model that apparently features a Ryzen 7 4700U 15W APU, together with a 512GB Samsung NVMe SSD and some admittedly slow 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM, which seemingly matches the Xiaomi Redmibook 13.

We know very little about the refreshed MateBook D apart from the aforementioned 3DMark listing. However, in our review of an earlier MateBook D version featuring the Ryzen 5 3500U, we concluded that Huawei’s AMD alternative was “still a good notebook.”

With Renoir making the move to Zen 2 cores, we expect performance to be noticeably better on the new MateBook with the gains to IPC. The updated RX Vega 7 iGPU should also ensure that light gaming is a possibility. The 3500U variant of the MateBook D 14 sold for approximately US$700. We’d expect the upcoming 4700U-equipped MateBook D to cost a little bit more, but to likely stay within the US$1000 price bracket.
