Thankfully, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, 5800HS, and the mobile Ryzen 9 5000 CPUs will not be exclusive to any OEMs
The Ryzen 9 4900HS launched early last year only for the Asus Zephyrus G14 laptop. We had strong negative opinions about Asus' exclusive use of the processor because it ultimately restricted options for the end user. Fortunately, AMD has stated that there won't be any similar deals at all for any of its upcoming mobile Ryzen 5000 CPUs.
"There are no OEM exclusive CPUs", responded AMD Director of Technical Marketing Robert Hallock during a CES conference call last week. "There's so much interest in the [Ryzen 5000] SKUs that there wasn't really a need to do another exclusive like that". Major OEMs like Lenovo, HP, and Dell will be free to integrate any mobile Zen 3 CPU onto their laptops as soon as they please whereas the Ryzen 9 4900HS and Ryzen 7 4800HS were originally off limits to these manufacturers.
Even with no "exclusive" AMD deal under its belt, Asus continues to be a staunch supporter of mobile AMD CPUs. In fact, Asus likes to put its AMD-powered gaming laptops front and center whereas other OEMs tend to announce them as second-rate alternatives to the usual Intel solutions. The flashy Asus Flow X13 and Zephyrus Duo 15 SE, for example, will not even have Intel options at all. Lenovo has already announced AMD-powered Legion laptops and hopefully the Dell Alienware and HP Omen series will follow soon.
