AMD unveils Ryzen 9 4900H & 9 4900HS processors with enhanced features

AMD, an American multinational semiconductor company, has recently announced the launch of two new mobile processors, namely Ryzen 9 4900H and Ryzen 9 4900HS, at CES 2020. This latest addition to the company’s mobile lineup, based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture, is aimed to take on Intel’s Core 19 laptop line.

AMD’s new Ryzen 9 4000-series processors are expected to be available in the market by Spring 2020, which support the company’s aim to introduce nearly 100 Ryzen OEM laptop configurations throughout 2020.

The new Ryzen 9 4900H is a mobile processor with 8-core/16-thread, featuring a base clock of 3.3Ghz. It has 45W TDP, 12MB of cache, and 1750MHz graphics frequency. The features of the existing line of H-series processors are as follows:

  • Ryzen 7 4900H: 8-core/16-thread, 12MB, 45W TDP, 1600MHz, 4.2 / 2.9GHz
  • Ryzen 5 4900H: 8-core/16-thread, 11MB, 45W TDP, 1500MHz, 4.0 / 3.0GHz

On the other hand, the Ryzen 9 4900HS, which has been designed under HS Design Standard for lightweight, ultra slim gaming notebooks under Z-height of 20mm, is a processor with 8-core/16-thread, with a 3.0Ghz base clock. It has 35W TDP, 12MB of cache, and 1750MHz graphics frequency. It has reportedly been claimed as 28% faster than Core i9-9880H by Intel, as well as hit over 60fps in various games, when paired with RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics card by Nvidia. The existing line of HS mobile processors consist of the following features:

  • Ryzen 7 4900HS: 8-core/16-thread, 12MB, 35W TDP, 1600MHz, 4.2 / 2.9GHz
  • Ryzen 5 4900HS: 6-core/12-thread, 11MB, 35W TDP, 1500MHz, 4.0 / 3.0GHz

The new processors are designed to power desktop-class gaming similar to existing Ryzen 9 processors, with enhanced features such as high-end gaming & content creation demographics. These processors can also shift power between the graphics cards and processors for game optimization, through AMD’s SmartShift feature.
