Ryzen Just CHANGED the Game…

– Hey guys, this is Austin, this little chip is one of the
most important new products that AMD has released in a very long time. This is the Ryzen 4000 series mobile chip and with it you get a full eight cores with solid graphics that can fit in a thin and light laptop. It is a very, very big deal. So obviously, AMD has been working on laptops for quite a while, however for the most part, they’ve been fine, they’ve been usable, but in the last couple of years they’ve started to turn around, ever since Ryzen Mobile came out. Now with it you have
really impressive graphics, and while the CPU and the
power usage wasn’t amazing, it was still very usable. However now, they’ve hit the 4000 series, it looks like they’re pretty
much firing on all cylinders. So for context on all of this, over the last couple of months I’ve been using the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, which does feature the
latest 10th generation, Intel Ice Lake processor, with it I get four cores as
well as a pretty decent GPU. But with Ryzen Mobile the idea is that the performance is going
to be significantly better. In the same tiny chip, in
the same 15W power budget, you can all the way to up to eight cores with even better graphics. Yes, my friends, it’s a brave new world where AMD is now making some
of the best desktop processors that are right up there with laptops too, I mean, obviously it’s CES, we haven’t had a chance
to benchmark anything. All the laptops are behind a plastic case, because they don’t want
me to get near them. But if this is anywhere close
to what I think it should be, it’s going to be really, really fun to try some of these laptops. The lineup is actually
pretty straightforward and very similar to what
you get on the desktop. So, Ryzen 3 is
available with four cores, kinda similar to what
you got last generation. However, if you jump up to Ryzen 5, that gets you six cores, with
or without hyper-threading, depending on which chip you go for. And then if you up to Ryzen 7, you’re getting eight cores, again, eight cores by themselves or eight cores with 16 threads on the very high end Ryzen 7 chip. Now, that’s actually
what I’ve got right here and the interesting thing here is, that all the Ryzen Mobile chips are actually using the
same eight core dies. So everything you see
going down to four or six, it’s all going to fit
in this tiny form factor and there’s pretty wide range of the different kinds of
TDP’s that you’ll find this at. So, at 15W you’ll very much see it in some of very thin and light laptops. But if you want to go
up to a gaming laptop, such as the Zephyrus, which we took a look at a couple days ago, you’re actually getting something which is much more in the 35W, 45W range, which is very, very
competitive with Intel. It’s interesting that they’re using the exact same chip across the board, but they’re able to get such good scaling out of not only the Zen 2 cores inside, but also the fact that it is
running on the 7 nm process. They could just, do that, you know, eight cores and everything, that’s fine, don’t worry about it. What’s cool here is that you’re not only losing a lot of clock speed either, even with the top end Ryzen 7 4800U it still clocking in at 1.8
GHz base and 4.2 GHz boost. That’s about what my current
Ice Lake system is running at, except that of course this has eight cores instead of four. Now, it’s not a complete match with the desktop version of Ryzen, so there is no PCI 4.0 on this, which isn’t particularly
relevant in the laptop space. As well as it does take advantage of integrated Vega graphics not Navi, so it’s a little behind the curve there. But by saying, it’s a
little behind the curve, they’re still claiming
that it’s about 30% faster than an equivalent Ice Lake system and about 30% faster I
would guess from that based on the last
generation of Ryzen Mobile. So, what you’re getting here is something which is not to far off from like lower end dedicated GPU, think maybe like MX150, MX250, that kind of ball park. Certainly this would be good
enough to play some games like 1080p Low, you could also have eight cores to do it at the exact same time. To do it, to game with,
wait no, I guess… You can game with all of it, but you have like four extra cores to watch Austin Evans
videos on a constant loop. – [Ken] Or stream. – Or you could stream… No, but you just watch
Austin Evans videos on a constant loop. Really that’s what you
need eight cores for, please watch my videos. (ping) Now if gaming is really your thing, you’re properly going to want to jump up to the H series processors and something like the Dell G5, as well as ROG Zephyrus G14. Now with this, it’s
basically the same chip, it’s just running at a higher 45W TDP as opposed to 15W. And with that you still
get the eight cores, but you’re really able to essentially boost it significantly higher. So, opposed to base
clocks on the U-series being like 1.8 GHz or so, you’re up to, I think, 2.9 GHz. But what you’re really
going to find this with, is that this chip is going to be paired with dedicated graphics, whether it be like 1660 or a RTX 2060 or of course AMD also has
their own dedicated GPU’s. But, the cool thing here
is the gaming laptops on the AMD and Intel side are about to be very, very competitive. I’m curious to see, AMD is talking a big game, they’re talking about how this is going to be very much equivalent to like a Core i7 or even a
Core i9 on the laptop side. And if that’s the case. Wow! Yeah! Now it should be cheaper too. So, the Ryzen Mobile 4000 Series will actually be going on sale pretty quickly. So laptops should start shipping somewhere in the next two to three months or so and I am really excited
to give them a try. So, obviously the last year or so has been a very, very huge win for AMD on the desktop side and with the mobile side, I feel like they are poised for maybe not quite that same slam dunk, because Intel does have
a lot of advantages in the power side as well as optimization. But if AMD can get close, if
they can get that much better, I think it is going to be a really interesting year for laptops. I mean, this is, it’s a lot of power for a very thin, very small computer. I am very excited. Now, there is actually
a lot more to talk about and something that I think
very much got overshadowed is the brand new AMD Athlon 3000 Series. So, if you look at the
lower end of laptops, you’re going to see a lot of AMD, like A12 and A10 processors, and I’m going to be frank, they suck. They’re very slow and they’re really not usable for a modern system in 2020. Well, thankfully Ryzen and therefore an extension Athlon has come down to that price level, so, a couple of new chips. So there is Athlon Silver and Athlon Gold, in case you’re curious about
who they’re targeting here, essentially these are very similar to the last generation Ryzen chips. So they are 12, 14 mm, couldn’t quite get a completely clear answer on that, but essentially, you’re
getting a couple Zen cores, either with or without hyper-threading, some level of Vega graphics, which generally speaking, this would be a much,
much more usable system at that $200, $300, $400 price point. I can’t image a more
different thing to move on to than the brand new AMD Threadripper 3990X. So the Athlon is going into
those incredibly cheap systems, this is a 64 core processor. I’m just going to pause for a second, 64 cores, with hyper-threading, for the low, low price of $3990. (clears throat) Well, this is not for the faint of heart, this is not for your average gamer or UrAvgConsumer. What this is really
meant for is someone who needs an insane amount
of processing power, but in a way that you can actually build a gaming PC out of it. So with those 64 cores, you’re actually getting
pretty reasonable clocks. So it’s somewhere like
2.9 GHz on all cores, and it will boost well up into four GHz when you’re actually going on single core. But when you look at something like this, it’s not really meant for, look you got to be someone whose gonna really take advantage
of that many cores, that much memory, this is an
incredibly high-end system. But the fact is, even at $3000, that’s a great deal compared to Team Blue, right, I mean you’re looking at Xeons which are significantly more expensive. I’m very excited this
thing when it goes on sale, actually I believe towards
the end of this month. So that my friends is what
AMD has here at CES 2020. Definitely be sure to
subscribe to the channel for more CES content, as well as check out some of our other CES videos here, and here somewhere. Anyway, thank you very much for watching, I’m going to go continue to be impressed, because that’s what happened when I came to the AMD booth today. (gentle music)

Intel = " OH SHIT " !!!

Gangplank · January 11, 2020 at 9:02 pm

The whole intel vs amd is a clusterfuck , i hate when wars like these apear

David Duthie · January 12, 2020 at 12:27 am

Correction AMD making the Best desktop cpus not just some, the latest 10 series 99 is a heater with a power requirement of 250W (heater not CPU).
the 4000 series looks the business if it is look for my for sale intel laptop.

ManMadeDesaster · January 12, 2020 at 1:01 am

Running on Ideapad s540 with Ryzen 3700u it is fast and I just can't imagine with 8/16 CPU ;0

Old Hag Lugia · January 12, 2020 at 2:05 am

And here I am still rocking an Athlon 64 X2.

David Buckley · January 12, 2020 at 2:24 am

Intel i7 i8 and i9 have plenty of cores lol

DD · January 12, 2020 at 2:45 am

Now all we need is some real competition for Nvidia – we got raped by Nvidia for the past FIVE years. 💩

tmthanhable · January 12, 2020 at 3:20 am

Bravo! I love AMD 🙂

Ullas Hyper · January 12, 2020 at 3:48 am

I saw u highlighted the comment can u tell what does that mean sir am I in trouble😔

T. S. Simonsen · January 12, 2020 at 3:55 am

Time to revisit oldboy?

TankQ · January 12, 2020 at 5:24 am

An 8 core 16 thread laptop is cheaper than nuc element? Sign me up.

Sure the 45w mobile is no 95w 3700x I’m guessing for production it will smoke most laptops out there. And it has 7 vega cores too. Sweet

Lock sty · January 12, 2020 at 5:33 am

my 3700x is insane

tkburn1439 · January 12, 2020 at 7:47 am

@intel, no matter how good you think you are there's always an Asian better than you 😂

bittewarten · January 12, 2020 at 8:59 am

And is just wrecking intel with ryzen.
I’d seriously prefer an AMD processor over an intel now – not only for price, but also for performance.

XEON used to be pure extortion…

Xandis 37 · January 12, 2020 at 2:35 pm

That's nice. Bragg about AMD when they actually know how to make their drivers work properly 🤣😂🤣😂

Captain Jack sparrow · January 12, 2020 at 3:39 pm

64 cores or 64 bit? Im confused…..Wait with hyperthreading? 128t? Its 128 bit right ? haha

Zosimo Pascua · January 12, 2020 at 3:43 pm

catchy subject nice try you caught many of us

Alex Lee · January 12, 2020 at 3:56 pm

Yes bro, we're watching your videos 😀 Congrats on the career that you've made, been watching so long I forget..

Stefano Brogliatto · January 12, 2020 at 5:53 pm

Cant wait for the g serie

Dominic Davis-Foster · January 12, 2020 at 6:01 pm

I wish Dell was offering the new XPS 13 with an AMD option, but maybe it's still too soon?

Online League · January 12, 2020 at 6:02 pm

Congrats 4million subs🖤

Дима Романов · January 12, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Imo, their design is retarded. How is 8/16 supposed to work in 15w environment? OH WAIT IT GOT VEGA 8 TOO…
Intel cant make 4/8 work on their super-refined 14+++++++++++. You cant double the core and gpu and say "it works". No way it works. 2 cores at 3ghz + 6 cores at 1.2ghz?
Why not just go with 45w????

Mr.AJWorks · January 12, 2020 at 6:13 pm


BRONZ ALBA · January 12, 2020 at 6:16 pm

AMD has long believed in parallel processing but was trapped in high-end Intel clock speed, but has now succeeded in relying on its own slogans.

Hopefully, with AMD's entry into the world of laptops, we'll see improvements like PC processing success. Best price and performance for AMD

I still have my old home computer with AMD Athlon xp 3200 AMD processor and this is my nostalgia

Von Fat Cat · January 12, 2020 at 6:27 pm

if it has 288mb cache? can I install Quake 1 onto a cpu? Quake 1 is like 50mb

Sun JoeXYS · January 12, 2020 at 8:31 pm

The funniest part of the video is when he cannot think up any valid reason for buying the 64-core CPU even though he tried very hard.

Boti · January 12, 2020 at 11:47 pm

I would like to see the Nintendo switch pro with this cpu

Ayu Natsume · January 13, 2020 at 1:19 am

1:41 they both won't get HyperThreading(tm) but one of them will get SMT

Zane Meyer · January 13, 2020 at 2:48 am

And they also have to maintain their market on graphics cards… it’s pretty incredible

Alvin Leonardo · January 13, 2020 at 3:40 am

now my 2500U laptop are very old compared to this lol

crimson_noir · January 13, 2020 at 4:25 am

Red was my favorite color anyway.

봅클아킴 · January 13, 2020 at 8:36 am

RIP Shintel

Athallah Hadi · January 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm

That stutter tho 0:42 look at the laptop screen

Daoist Potsmoker · January 13, 2020 at 1:16 pm

did you used to play war commander ?

Kirby Glover · January 13, 2020 at 2:21 pm

I'm really interested to see what happens with Zen 4, since I imagine that they will crank up the core count there. Just picturing a 12 or more core count laptop makes me drool a lil bit

Devin Dyer · January 13, 2020 at 9:56 pm

sigh remember when atholon and pentium were the gaming cpus…. those were the days

SlyNine · January 13, 2020 at 11:42 pm

Did they removed the IO cache? Could be why they are calling it 4000 instead of 3000m. bet the memory latency is low.

godcore223 · January 14, 2020 at 3:25 am

So you can game without like a rtx 2080 etc

Juneao Alfred · January 14, 2020 at 5:07 am

intel is in massive trouble.. this is what they get laughing at amd's Chiplets+Ducktape.

Edit: if i were AMD's CEO.. i'll skyrocket the prices if intel truly can't compete anymore.. anyone agree.. or did you guys start to think that competition from intel is important too?.

Firdaus Random Railfans · January 14, 2020 at 7:55 am

He's voice make me remember Steve tereberry when he say taka taka taka taka that exactly how I hear it right now

تقنيه · January 14, 2020 at 9:37 am

Hi there too

DripGxd_Cam · January 14, 2020 at 12:41 pm

Amd getting better will make intel better because intel won’t be able to continue doing the ridiculous shit they have been doing because their competitor is doing better for less.

Paul Bradley · January 14, 2020 at 4:35 pm

They ripped the competition in work station workloads not in games. ces is for games NOT workstation and workload uses. Intel is king in gaming end of.

Mr. Z · January 14, 2020 at 4:46 pm

can you buy the AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile seires chip and put it in a laptop? cause if that is possible ill do it!

M.C. Turnt House of Tech · January 14, 2020 at 7:33 pm

Wouldn't it be crazy if the reason behind intels "slacking" is bc they have something new and never seen before? I dont support one over the other, but it does seem strange that they would go south so quickly.

Dario Arteaga · January 14, 2020 at 9:52 pm

Are these compatible with external graphic cards?

My Opinion · January 15, 2020 at 3:02 am

Intel, might wanna re-think the lazy greedy method of operation, quickly.

Michael Skinner · January 15, 2020 at 3:03 am

Extra cores could be used for video editing

jalen19x3 · January 15, 2020 at 7:19 am

Join the cult

Chaperz · January 15, 2020 at 7:53 am

Intel trash 🤢

Mallikarjuna Veldurti · January 15, 2020 at 9:30 am

Think of the day when AMD enters mobile phone market

Quang Thang Le · January 15, 2020 at 12:57 pm

AMD processor will be available in my next generation laptop (an i5 7200U user said)

Musa Ndiaye · January 15, 2020 at 4:26 pm

Durability issues. I don't want to spend $2000 on a g14 and see it die in 2 years. I keep my laptop for a minimum of five years.

Akashic Samadhi · January 16, 2020 at 1:56 am

great videos, I'm hooked.

Akashic Samadhi · January 16, 2020 at 2:02 am

shit is crazy, i haven't built a computer in like 10 years… I come back on the scene last year and build a new rig for about $1300 and the performance absolutely blows my mind… now I am hooked on following new and upcoming parts and I am thrilled, what an exciting time to be alive! I kept thinking I was going to upgrade my cpu to a 2700, and then the 3700 came out so I thought I'd wait for price drop on that…but now zen 3 is just around the bend so… wtf!! i should just wait another year for zen 4 lmao

SysGhost · January 16, 2020 at 11:31 am

Hopefully manufacturers will *actually* manufacture AMD based laptops, and not just make a few demo units and never ever touch it again as they've done in the past.

Your Anime Otaku · January 16, 2020 at 12:07 pm

running with a ryzen 7 2700 and i sill love it! IDC if im biased rn, but Amd will always be my favorite company regardless if intel is still superior. amd cares more about the consumer with their bang for buck chipsets and thats what everyone needs for starting out on making a pc. not everyone can afford what intel has to offer, good for team blue for being the most powerful, but hats off to amd for putting their minds in the consumers.

So will I be able to replace my 3700U with this new CPU?

n z · January 18, 2020 at 4:53 pm

congrats on 4 mil dude, btw i hope they do the same that they did for that x570 board and compare it with tb3 (4 lanes & pd charging). a laptop like this could be a killer

/ Abaddon / · January 19, 2020 at 12:03 am

Amidst this AMD uprising, I'm here sitting with a recently bought used i7 3770/GTX 780ti configuration. To me, considering what I used to have this is almost 3 times better upgrade, for a decent price too!

TheElectricCherry · January 21, 2020 at 9:02 pm

I've had my 3500u laptop for almost 2 months and it's been pretty good. Sure it's not setting the world on fire, but it has allowed me to play games that were unplayable on my previous laptops.

Kyler · January 22, 2020 at 5:39 am

And my friend keeps telling me that AMD is bad and that Intel is better…

Agus Dwiriyanto · January 22, 2020 at 12:52 pm

the downside of Integrated GPUs is that they eat up you RAM, while you only use your dedicated GPU…

Brian Goodwin · January 22, 2020 at 4:21 pm

I'm just hoping the thermals on the Ryzen mobile, considering all the power this chip has, doesn't impact performance negatively, and that the laptop manufacturers dont make stupid decisions, such as single channel ram or poor thermal design that throttles the processor. Both seriosuly screwed over previous generation ryzen mobile processors and impacted their perception of ability to perform.

radøxx · January 22, 2020 at 5:35 pm

The best Intel mobile has is the i7 1068G7 and it only reaches 4.1GHz on it's 4c/8t CPU 😑 Meanwhile the 4800H is 4.2GHz on 8c/16t 😃 Great job AMD!!

Bas van der Meij · January 26, 2020 at 2:03 pm

Bruh, I got a desktop and a laptop but my laptop is still running an Intel core i3 6100u xD 2 cores…

CPUs are getting so crazy. Right now there is no use for it for the average Joe but I am wondering what this will mean for the average Joe in the future. Like, what can be added to functionality of computers?

Dreamster Killer · January 27, 2020 at 12:11 pm
