Thankfully, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, 5800HS, and the mobile Ryzen 9 5000 CPUs will not be exclusive to any OEMs

AMD won't be making the same exclusivity mistake again with the mobile Ryzen 5000 series. The chipmaker has confirmed that all of its mobile Zen 3 CPUs will be available for all major OEMs to deploy in contrast to the more limited approach with certain mobile Zen 2 processors the year before.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
