CES 2021 is in full swing and AMD is here with “the most powerful PC processors ever built.” This is in reference to the 7nm Zen 3 architecture-based Ryzen 5000 mobile processors. There is two range of products viz. H-series for high-end gaming laptops and U-series for mainstream ultraportables.

The highest-order product from H-class is Ryzen 9 5980HX, while from the U-team there is Ryzen 7 5800U. Let’s take a look at the specs and numbers now.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile: H-Series

The Ryzen 9 5980HX with its 8 cores (in a single block), 16 threads, 20MB of L2+L3 shared cache, and a top clock speed of 4.6GHz is touted as the “ultimate performance” engine for gaming laptops. They boast thermal headroom of up to 45+ watts TDPs. Further, they will be overclock-ready too.

The GPU is the same as its predecessor, although AMD has teased RDNA2-based graphics for laptops and mid-range desktops later this year.

The Ryzen HX 5000-series laptops boast 4K gaming prowess, and class-leading single as well as multi-threaded performance. For now, these are claimed to be better than Intel’s Tiger Lake H counterparts.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile: U-Series

Cores/ThreadsBase FrequencyBoost FrequencyTDPZen
Ryzen 7 5800U8C / 16T1900440015WZen3
Ryzen 5 5600U6C / 12T2300420015WZen3

Ryzen 5 5500U6C / 12T2100400015WZen2
Ryzen 3 5300U4C / 8T2600380015WZen2

As you can see from the above table, there are still few U-series processors that are fabbed on Zen 2 microarchitecture. The reasoning is particularly not clear at the moment.

Meanwhile, the Zen-3 based Ryzen 7 5800U claims single-threaded performance gains of up to 16% and up to 17.5 hours of battery endurance.
