While everyone is ready and waiting to see what AMD does next with its Ryzen series of desktop CPUs, AMD has instead shifted its focus—for the moment at least—to the mobile market, announcing today that they will be supporting mobile processing efforts with the Ryzen Mobile’s second generation of processors.

Flying under the Ryzen 3000-Series flag, the new mobile processors are slated to offer mobile developers plenty of options when it comes to meeting their processing needs. There are quite a few to choose from. Here’s what the full setup looks like:

NAME CORES TDP BASE FREQ (GHz) TURBO FREQ (GHz) VEGA IGP IGP FREQ (MHz)
Athlon 300U 2 15 W 2.4 3.3 Vega 3 1000 MHz
Ryzen 3 3200U 2 15 W 2.6 3.5 Vega 3 1200 MHz
Ryzen 3 3300U 4 15 W 2.1 3.5 Vega 6 1200 MHz
Ryzen 5 3500U 4 15 W 2.1 3.7 Vega 8 1200 MHz
Ryzen 5 3552H 4 35 W 2.1 3.7 Vega 8 1200 MHz
Ryzen 7 3700U 4 15 W 2.3 4.0 Vega 10 1400 MHz
Ryzen 7 3750H 4 35 W 2.3 4.0 Vega 10 1400 MHz

As you can see, the spectrum of available processors starts down at Dual Core and 15W, however it expands upwards to Quad Core and 35W, offering quite a bit of power for those looking to add a little more oomph to their mobile hardware. Based on what’s known about the new CPUs so far, it looks like AMD is playing their cards pretty well, giving both users with money to spend, and those on a budget, more than enough wiggle room to find something that works, including manufacturers for many popular Chromebook models, like the HP Chromebook 14, which AMD showcased on their Twitter today. 

According to AMD, this shift in focus comes thanks to new information about the notebook market, which sells roughly 90 million units per year. AMD is clearly trying to make a play for a much larger slice of the pie by offering such a broad range of processors in order to fit any need—from Chromebooks to more premium devices out there.

As CES wears on, we might see more information about these CPUs from AMD. In fact, you can watch the AMD CES 2019 keynote later in the week to see all their announcements for yourself, or just stay tuned to our CES 2019 home page to see all the latest reveals and information from some of the world’s top technology companies.
