AMD Dragon Range "Ryzen 7045" Series Mobility CPUs

The AMD Dragon Range CPUs will be aimed at the high-performance segment with more cores, threads, &  cache than what AMD has offered us previously while Phoenix Point will be aimed at the thin and light laptop segment. The Dragon Range CPUs will have a TDP rating of around 55W-75W+ while Phoenix Point will have TDPs of around 35-45W. The 55W TDP is for the base configuration and we can expect the chip to be configurable up to 75W for laptop designs with high-end cooling and bigger form factors.

AMD has introduced a total of four new SKUs within its Dragon Range lineup which include the Ryzen 9 7945HX with 16 cores and 32 threads, the Ryzen 9 7845HX with 12 cores and 24 threads, the Ryzen 7 7745HX with 8 cores and 16 threads, and lastly, the Ryzen 5 7645HX with 6 cores and 12 threads.

Compared to the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX, the new flagship Ryzen 9 7945HX CPU delivers up to an 18% increase in single-threaded and a 78% increase in multi-threaded performance while also offering up to 62% increase in gaming performance.

AMD Phoenix Point "Ryzen 7040" Series Mobility CPUs

AMD confirmed its Phoenix Point APU lineup which will utilize both Zen 4 and RDNA 3 cores. The new Phoenix APUs will carry LPDDR5 and PCIe 5 support and come in SKUs ranging from 35W to 45W. AMD has also pointed out that the laptop parts may include memory technologies aside from LPDDR5 and DDR5. The CPUs will be outfitted with the latest AMD XDNA AI engines

For today's launch, AMD is introducing a total of three SKUs, the Ryzen 9 7940HS being the flagship. This chip features 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 4.0 GHz, a boost clock of 5.2 GHz, a 40 MB total cache, and an integrated RDNA 3 GPU with 12 Compute Units operating at up to 3000 MHz. The follow-up to this is the 7840HS & which also comes with a similar core configuration but lower clock speeds of 3.8 GHz base and 5.1 GHz boost clocks.
