This year’s CES is an all-digital event, as COVID-19 is still a real concern here and around the globe. Dr. Lisa Su gave her speech unveiling the new Ryzen 5000 series mobile CPUs and new Epic Processors. I was hoping for a glimpse at the latest 5000 series Threadripper CPUs, but I guess we will have to wait on that one.
AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors
Eight cores and 16 threads boosting up to 4.6 GHz and 4.8 GHz is incredible. I look forward to seeing these in action in the coming months. AMD is expecting laptop designs powered by Ryzen mobile CPUs to grow by 50% compared to their Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors, by such companies as Acer, hp, Lenovo, Dell, and MSI. They expect more than 150 ultra-thin, gaming and professional notebooks, and laptop designs.
AMD Epyc Processors
Dr. Lisa Su gave us a sneak peek at the new Epyc processor’s code-named Milan. She didn’t go into much detail, but the weather simulation they ran showed the new Epyc processors completing the simulation 68% faster than Intel’s best offering in the same class. She did say we can expect more details when these new processors launch later this quarter.
