AMD announced two new mobile computing units: the new top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 4900H family. This family consists of the standard H model built for 45 W operation, and the HS model at 35 W. These parts will offer more frequency and more graphics performance than the rest of AMD’s offerings, and are the only APUs from AMD to carry the weight of the Ryzen 9 branding.
In January ASUS showed off the Zephyrus G14, the only 14-inch laptop with both a H-class processor and a discrete GPU, as well as an array of thin and light designs all based on the U-series family. This will be the first HS system into the market and that system will have a short exclusivity on the Ryzen 7 version parts.
AMD’s Ryzen 9 offerings are meant to be the best. The HS processors are slightly different to the H processors. They mostly have the same frequencies (except the Ryzen 9), but are labelled as 35 W in the default configuration. This means it will still attempt to aim for the best frequency.
The Ryzen 9 4900H and Ryzen 9 4900HS are expected to hit the market in the Spring of 2020.
