AMD finally makes the Ryzen 7840U official and also claims that it can beat M2 by Apple. AMD has said that Framework and Razer will be making use of these chips as well as HP, Acer, and Lenovo.
AMD Ryzen 7840U
It is still no secret that AMD has a new low-power laptop chip with potent integrated graphics in the event you don’t know. Firms such as Aokzoe, and Ayaneo are all sticking it or its Z1 Extreme spinoff directly into their handheld gaming PCs. But the AMD 7840U originally was crafted for thin and powerful laptops, and the company’s finally starting to share that very story today.
AMD has claimed that the new chip can give Apple a run for its money, thus besting the 2022 MacBook Air’s M2 processor in “application performance” by up to 75 percent and then taking on the Intel Core i7-1360P by even over that in both productivity and graphics, as you will get to see it stated fairly vaguely charts shared.
Gen on gen, Matthew Hurwitz, AMDs client PR manager has stated that the chip in question offers users up to a 24 percent “application performance” increase over the 6850H chip of the company.
Features and Specs of the AMD Ryzen 7840U
AMD however claims that it can do all of that while also delivering “leadership efficiency for exceptional battery life,” but, it is however not offering even the vaguest idea of what that battery life might be like unfortunately. It’s still possible that the firm does not yet know: all of the reported benchmarks were run on a reference board rather than on just a laptop. (Apple’s M2-powered laptops are the reigning battery life champs, so it is kind of important to know as well as getting the information on point!)
That being said, Hurwitz revealed that we can expect more information in regards to battery life as well as gaming FPS to be forthcoming, and AMD has not been a slouch of late in the Windows realm. The manager says that Framework (which recently announced its very first AMD-powered laptop), Razer, Acer, HP, and Lenovo will make use of these chips, among many others.
There Will Also Be Parts for Ryzen 9, Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 3 Series
The AMD 7840U as you should know is not alone in the new 15-to-30-watt lineup of U-series parts. You should however know that there will be Ryzen 9, Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 3 series parts as well which will get to sport three separate tiers of graphics as well which are the 12-core Radeon 780M, eight-core Radeon 760M, and four-core Radeon 740M.
Lastly, all of the reported specs suggest that the AMD Z1 handheld gaming part is very much likely a modified Ryzen 5 7540U, along with a Radeon 740M GPU.
