AMD’s new Ryzen Mobile chips combine the Zen architecture with the Vega graphics silicon to offer a revolutionary leap in performance compared to previous AMD chips. The two new processors, the Ryzen 7 5800U and 5700U, are the most powerful of the bunch. They both feature a 15-watt TDP and a base frequency of 3.8GHz, which can be boosted to 4.2GHz. In addition, the two chips share the same GPU and PCIe lanes, meaning the 5800U should offer 8 Radeon Vega compute units (512 stream processors) clocked at 1100MHz. The 5700U has 8 CUs (512 SPs) clocked at 1250MHz.

AMD has announced its latest processor lineup, Ryzen 7. These processors are direct competitors to Intel’s i-Series and are designed to be powerful yet energy-efficient. The high-performance Ryzen chips run on a brand new architecture, codenamed Zen. It brings a whole new design to the x86 architecture, with simultaneous multithreading and boosting technology called SenseMI. These chips will be compatible with AM4 motherboards and DDR4 memory, and they will also feature support for PCI-E 3.0, USB 3.1 Gen1, USB 3.1 Gen2, NVMe, SATA 3, and so on.

With the Ryzen U 2021 and 2020 hardware iterations, AMD can finally compete decently with Intel in the ultrabook space, and not just in the budget segments as it has in recent years.

AMD’s Renoir platform, set to launch in 2020, consists of Ryzen Mobile 4000 APUs with a Zen 2 processor with up to 8Core/16Threads and an integrated Radeon Vega GPU with up to 8 compute units. If the thermal implementation allows, all this is combined in a 15W TDP chassis, with potentially higher TDP settings.

AMD released an updated series of Ryzen 5000 APUs in 2021, curiously consisting of two broader types of processors: some based on the slightly revised Zen2 architecture, as part of the Lucienne Zen2+ platform, and others based on the newer Zen3 architecture, as part of the Cezanne platform. But, again, we will come back to this later.

These are models with a TDP of between 10 and 25 W, and the performance of each model varies depending on its assigned TDP and overall design. So check out our detailed reviews to better understand what makes these AMD Ryzen 5000 U platforms so special.

In addition, there is a current selection of Ryzen U laptops available in your area. Later in this article, we will see a detailed list of all the Ryzen U options available in the store.

But first, a brief overview of the 2021 Ryzen U 5000 platform, starting with a general specification of the different APU variants and their key features.

In addition to these processors, AMD also offers a subset of Ryzen Pro U processors that will be included in some of the business laptops we’ve covered in this separate article.

The Ryzen 7 5800U (8C/16T), Ryzen 5 5600U (6C/12T), and Ryzen 3 5400U (4C/8T) are based on the Cezanne platform and feature Zen3-based CPUs with 4-8 cores, HyperThreading, updated memory controller, and more L2+L3 cache; faster Radeon Vega integrated graphics and many other IPC enhancements and optimizations.

By comparison: The Ryzen 7 5700U (8C/16T), Ryzen 5 5500U (6C/12T), and Ryzen 3 5300U (4C/8T) are part of the Lucienne platform and get Zen2+ based processors, with some minor optimizations over the Zen2 Renoir 2020 processors. Lucienne’s architecture is better explained in this detailed article from Anandtech.

Before I discuss the performance differences between these platforms, I’ll add the specifications of the Renoir 2020 Ryzen 4000 series so we can include them in the comparison.

With the transition to Lucienne, AMD dropped the non-hyperthreaded Ryzen 4000 processors, increased base and turbo clock speeds, updated the memory controller and core voltage management, and revamped the iGPU. And another switch to Cezanne results in a performance advantage in single- and multi-threaded processor tests and power loads and a small gain in graphics loads.

The following figures come directly from AMD, so they should be cautioned. In this first series, all Ryzen 5000 processors are compared to their Ryzen 4000 counterparts in Cinebench R20 single and multi-threaded CPU tests.

Overall, the AMD Ryzen 5000 and Intel Tiger Lake Core 11th generation platforms lead. The 4th generation processors are close in daily performance and single-core workloads. However, they share blows in GPU and gaming workloads, and AMD wins in multi-threaded workloads where it benefits from more cores than the Tiger Lake 4C processors. AMD Ryzen 4000 platforms lag slightly in all tests, but they still outperform Intel variants in multicore tasks.

If you’re looking for more information on the performance of the Ryzen platform compared to the Intel variants, you should check out the many reviews available here on the site.

For this reason, we have divided the Ryzen U Mobile laptop list into two sections: Top products based on the Ryzen 7 5800U/4800U APU, and mid-range and budget devices that can only be configured with the Ryzen 7 5700U APU, with links to our reviews and current configurations/prices. Most of these links are affiliate links, so buying them helps support our work here at Ultrabookreview.com.

Full list of Ryzen 7 5800U/4800U and Ryzen 5 5600U Ultrabooks

The lineup includes high-end and mid-range ultrabooks built on the Ryzen 7 5800U and 4800U platforms. Note that these 5800/4800 configurations are very limited in most regions, but these laptops’ mid-range Ryzen 5 5600U configurations should be more widely available. However, if you’re in the market for a powerful Ultrabook, you should also read our article on the Ryzen 5000 HS platform.

Also, the MSRP starting prices listed are mostly for Ryzen 5 or even Ryzen 3, and Ryzen 8 models are significantly more expensive when available.

Please note that we are constantly working on updating these lists, but for now, the information is sparse, and some are based on leaks or rumors. So if you notice any bugs or an AMD Ryzen U laptop that should be here and isn’t, please contact us in the comments below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Ryzen 7 4700U good for gaming?

A: AMD has been on a roll lately with their high-end chips, and their latest processor, the Ryzen 7 4700U, is no exception. The Ryzen 7 is the company’s first created on its new Zen architecture – which is also the basis for its latest graphics cards. The CPU itself is a dual-core, eight-threaded chip, which can boost up to 3.6GHz and has a TDP of 15W. AMD’s 2nd generation Ryzen 7 has been out for over a year now, and while it is a great CPU, it does have one flaw that is holding it back from being the best. That flaw is the integrated graphics processor. Reviews have shown that while the integrated graphics processor is fine for office work and basic internet browsing, it just isn’t up to snuff for modern-day gaming. There is a way around this, though. If you buy an r7 4800u, then you can use a separate graphics card.

How good is the Ryzen 7 4700U?

A: For most people, AMD’s history of making computer processors is relatively unknown, except for a few things like the Athlon and Opteron lines. AMD has made a name for itself as a very capable competitor to Intel in the past and has been a key part of the development of many technologies in modern computers. These include the first x86 processor, the first x86 64-bit processor, and the first commercially available 64-bit x86 processor. When it comes to laptops, the best CPU for the money is often the one that can be found in the cheapest models. So, if you’re looking for a laptop that won’t break the bank, you want to keep your eyes peeled for the processors with the lowest prices per performance. And, in recent years, AMD’s Ryzen 7 CPUs have been hard to pass up. The Ryzen 7 4700U is a 2.4-GHz mobile processor with eight cores, which means it can handle multithreaded tasks more easily than its quad-core Intel competitors. It also boasts a whopping 16MB of cache memory and a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz.

Which laptops use AMD Ryzen?

A: AMD recently released its new Ryzen family of processors, which boast impressive computing power for a reasonable price. Most of the hype around the Ryzen line target gamers who want to upgrade their rigs to take advantage of the latest, graphically intense games. However, this processor has many other potential uses, not least for laptops. AMD’s new Ryzen processors are still very much in their infancy for laptops. Most manufacturers are either still using older AMD chips or Intel processors. However, that’s slowly changing as Ryzen 7 makes its way into more laptops, so if you’re looking to buy a new laptop with the latest AMD processor, you’ve come to the right place.
