AMD Ryzen series has been one of their best chipsets and has been able to provide some of the most power-packed performance when compared to Intel’s Tiger Lake chipsets. As per the recent details, the AMD Ryzen 5000 low-power APUs for laptops will have Navi 2 (RDNA 2) integrated graphics and support for DDR5/LPDDR5 memory. The details given by Phoronix stated that a Linux kernel patch was spotted that clearly shows that Ryzen 5000 mobile APUs will have RDNA 2 graphics, and be built on Zen 2, with LPDDR5 support. It will also add the VCN 3.0 support.
The presence of Linux does state that we will be looking at the Ryzen 5000 chipset much sooner than expected and it can be as soon as later this year. Earlier it was expected that the chipset will be launched later next year, during the first quarter. The chipset is expected to give a very tough fight to the Intel’s Tiger Lake chipset and will be visible in Laptops before 2020 ends. One of the key features that Ryzen 500 will provide to the users is LPDDR5 support, which is still not available in the Tiger Lake chipset from Intel.
The Ryzen 5000 chipset will be a great addition to laptops that have been dedicatedly designed for gaming platforms and heavy usage. There is no word as to which laptop will show the chipset for the very first time, but it will be launching in the month of October for public offering.
