AMD just launched the Ryzen 4000 notebook APU family, highlighted by the heavy-hitting Ryzen 7 4800H and flagship, Ryzen 9 4900HS. With the arrival of these 7nm Zen 2 parts in the mobile space, there is no reason to buy an Intel Coffee Lake H part: AMD beats Team Blue in both price and performance.

As per our earlier report, the Ryzen 7 4800H, which is actually shipping in laptops at present, is now the world’s fastest mobile CPU. The Ryzen 9 4900HS will likely take the throne in the weeks to come, but it’s remarkable how even the mid-range Ryzen 7 part does so much better than Intel’s top-end i9-9980HK.
What chips were released today? As of now, the Ryzen 4000 mobile family consists of the Ryzen 9 4900H and HS, the Ryzen 7 4800H and HS, and the Ryzen 5 4600H and HS. The “H” parts have a 45W TDP. Meanwhile, the HS parts are voltage binned to reach similar performance levels with just a 35W TDP.
The top-end Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HS feature 8 cores and 16 threads, with a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a 4.4 GHz max boost clock. They both feature Vega 8 iGPUs clocked at 1750 MHz. The cheaper Ryzen 7 4800H isn’t far behind, with a 2.9 GHz base clock and 4.2 GHz max boost clock, with the same eight cores and sixteen threads.
A number of laptops are already on the market sporting these parts, including the 4800H/1660 Ti-equipped Asus TUF Gaming A15 at US$999.99 and the all AMD MSI Bravo 15 with the Ryzen 5 4600H and Radeon RX 5500M.
