What happens when you combine a new, svelte 14-inch gaming laptop from ASUS with the power of AMD's new 7nm 35-watt octa-core Ryzen 9 processor? You get what looks to be the most powerful 14-inch laptop on the planet. Here are some early benchmarks to prove the point.
AMD has numerous mobile processors available for laptop manufacturers to create new and exciting options for us to choose from. As well as various Intel configurations, it's now possible to select even more capable AMD-powered notebooks. Here's how you can choose the right one for you.
AMD's latest Ryzen Mobile 4000 U-series chips are set to hit the market in April. We recently spent time with AMD to see how these chips will beat Intel's 10th Gen U-series for performance and battery life. Before we review AMD's latest chip, let's see what it is promising with its Ryzen 7 4800U, and Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs.
AMD has struggled to compete against Intel in the mobile space for years, only being able to sell CPUs for less capable notebooks in the affordable segment. This all changes with the new Ryzen 4000 series CPUs, including the notable Ryzen 9 4900H.
Intel didn't have a great 2019 and AMD doesn't look as though it's slowing down any time soon. With the pushback of 10nm for Intel processors to the tail end of 2021, just how is Intel going to hold out against AMD's push?
A spotted Geekbench score shows AMD's Ryzen 5 4500U outperforming Intel's Core i7-10710U. AMD brought heavy competition to Intel with its desktop line of processors and looks like it will do the same for laptops with its upcoming lineup.
Early reports that certain operating systems, namely Windows 10 Pro and Linux, would negatively affect performance of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. AMD states this simply isn't true, and that you're existing OS should be fine.

AMD failed to really take the fight to Intel with Ryzen mobile processors on a 12nm manufacturing process, launching in devices like Microsoft's Surface Pro 7. The new Ryzen 4000 series of mobile processors are set to change this.
