AMD Ryzen 9 4900H 8C/16T Mobility CPU With 45W TDP Spotted Inside High-End ASUS TUF Gaming Notebook

The AMD Ryzen 9 4900H, a top-end Mobility CPU with 8 Cores and 16 Threads, has been spotted yet again. This time, the AMD’s flagship laptop processor was identified inside ASUS TUF Gaming Notebook. The premium TUF branded gaming laptop from ASUS packed the highest-end configuration that matched with the AMD’s Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ lineup.

AMD is aggressively entering the laptop CPU space. The company’s ZEN 2 based Renoir Ryzen 4000 CPUs and APUs for laptops have been confirmed by most of the OEMs who are readying their portable computing and gaming machines. The ASUS TUF Gaming Notebook with the highest possible configuration is just one of the examples of premium portable devices with AMD APU.

ASUS TUF Gaming FA5061W Laptop With AMD Ryzen 9 4800H CPU With Onboard Radeon Vega Graphics Spotted:

The premium ASUS TUF brand competes closely with the ASUS ROG brand in terms of quality, workmanship, specifications, and hardware. The ASUS TUG Gaming Notebook with AMD Ryzen 9 4800H CPU sports 15.6-inch 1080p display along with the option to include up to a Terabyte of HDD/SSD storage capacity (SATA / M.2). It comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM. The exact specifications of the RAM aren’t yet disclosed. Incidentally, even the exact GPU isn’t mentioned, which hints at onboard Radeon Vega graphics instead of discrete GPU. ASUS hasn’t officially launched the laptop, but market analysts expect the portable gaming device could launch in the next quarter of 2020.

Coming to the AMD Ryzen 9 4800H CPU, recent reports have confirmed that it is indeed an 8 Core, 16 Threads processor with a 3.0 GHz base clock, and a boost clock of up to 4.4 GHz. The graphics chip onboard the premium AMD flagship APU could feature up to 8 Compute Units or 512 Stream Processors.

The AMD Ryzen 9 4900H will come in the standard 45W and the ‘HS’ 35W SKUs. AMD could optimize the APU at the 35W TDP simply because the processor will have better binning, allowing for higher and more stable clocks. This is not easily achievable at higher TDPs. The 35W Ryzen 9 4800HS has proved to have a good performance boost over the standard 45W Ryzen 9 4800H in various benchmarks. Hence the same can be expected from the two variants of the Ryzen 9 4900H.

We had previously reported about the AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS. It was previously believed that the APU was the fastest mobility processor in the 7nm ZEN 2 Architecture-based Renoir family. The AMD Ryzen 7 4700HS features a base clock of 2.9 GHz and a boost clock of 4.2 GHz along with 16 MB of L3 cache. It comes with 8 Cores and 16 Threads as well as a 7nm Vega GPU with 8 CUs or 512 Stream Processors.

The latest reports strongly indicate that AMD is offering all its desktop-grade CPU lineup, with a lowered TDP, for laptops. These APUs, with onboard Radeon Vega graphics could outpace Intel’s products. AMD’s 7nm Renoir Mobility APUs are by far one of the most anticipated primarily because it is the first time Intel will have direct competition in the laptop space.
