AMD kicked off 2020 with a bang by debuting its new-generation Ryzen 4000 processors on mobile devices. These Zen 2 CPUs improved core counts, clock speeds, and instructions per clock over last-generation Ryzen mobile processors and should make AMD's best far more competitive with the Intel alternative.
AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs made a huge splash on desktop in 2019, and though these new laptop CPUs come under the Ryzen 4000 banner, they use the same Zen 2 architecture and most of the performance enhancements that come along with that. Starting with the lowly Ryzen 3 CPUs and running all the way up to Ryzen 7 4000-series CPUs, AMD's new chips have some incredibly exciting potential to shake up the mobile market in dramatic fashion. They could lead to far more powerful gaming laptops and big boosts to performance in multi-threaded tasks for workstations.

We'll need to wait until the release of third-party tests of supporting motherboards before we can give you a truer representation of what Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs are capable of, but early looks at the specs table and AMD's own first-party testing suggest they could be something quite special. They feature big improvements in both single and multi-threaded workloads, making them great for gaming and working on.
Their onboard graphics aren't revolutionary, but it is an improvement on what we've seen before and in many instances appears capable of going blow for blow with Intel's 11th-generation graphics found on its 10nm Ice Lake mobile CPUs. AMD claims that in some scenarios its onboard graphics are up to 28% faster.
AMD promises desktop-like performance in H-series gaming and creator laptops. It even showcased some 3DMark Firestrike physics test results which showed the Ryzen 7 4800H beating out the desktop Core i7 9700K by double digit percentages at less than half the TDP.
There will also be U-Series Ultrathins, and "Pro" models targeting professionals and workstation users.
One of the first laptops to sport AMD's new Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, which AMD showed off on stage during its presentation. It also debuted the Asus Zephyr G14, which sported a fancy customizable light show on the lid. It's launching in February.
AMD plans 12 new models in Q1 of 2020, with more than 1,000 available by the end of the year.
This isn't all AMD detailed in its CES 2020 press conference though. For more coverage of the year's biggest tech show so far, check out our CES 2020 page .
