New AMD Ryzen H Series processors look primed for gaming laptops

AMD has launched two new Ryzen processors, specifically designed for high-end laptops with room for more power, especially at heat capacity. The processor starts AMD's new H Series line, much like Intel's own H series mobile chips.

Both of these processors, known as AMD Ryzen 5 2600H and Ryzen 7 2800H, are still quad-core. The chip with basic clock speed and thermal design power (TDP) has been significantly improved compared to the previous U series. (You can see that the GPU core has increased slightly from 2700 U to 2800 H).

However, the maximum frequency is not affected by the board as a whole.

For example, the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U are clocked at 2 GHz and 2.2 GHz to get started, with maximum speeds of 3.6 GHz and 3.8 GHz, respectively. By comparison, the Ryzen 5 2600H and Ryzen 7 2800H are able to achieve maximum speeds at the same rate, although the basic clock speeds of 3.2GHz and 3.3GHz are much faster, respectively.

The higher TDP thresholds required by both processors – just 25 watts of the previous 45W model – left room for more demanding discrete graphics and memory, not to mention the robust encoding performance of the CPU itself .

Of course, AMD has not mentioned a laptop with such a chip yet. One thing we already know is that the laptop will be slightly larger than the Ryzen-toting laptop we've seen to accommodate this processor
