Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has introduced at CES 2021 a new line of Ryzen 5000 series of mobile and desktop processors designed for new laptops.

AMD said new laptops featuring the Ryzen processors will be available in the first quarter of this year from ASUS, HP and Lenovo. AMD expects more than 150 consumer and commercial notebooks based on the Ryzen 5000 series to be introduced over the course of 2021.

The processors feature enterprise-grade security and seamless manageability to commercial users. The processors feature up to eight cores and 16 threads built on the AMD Zen 3 architecture. The processors are capable of up to 23% increased single-threaded performance and up to 17% faster multi-threaded performance over the previous generation for gaming and creator notebooks.

The processors allow for up to 17.5 hours of general use battery life and up to 21 hours of movie playback on a single charge.

The Ryzen 9 5900X and AMD 7 5800X desktop processors have also been released and built on the Zen 3 core architecture, featuring lower 65-watt TDP for 24% faster 1080p gaming across gaming titles compared to the previous generation.

These processors include up to 64 cores, eight channels of memory, registered dual in-line memory module (RDIMM) and load reduced dual in-line memory module (LRDIMM) support, 128 PCIe Gen 4 lanes and AMD Pro security technologies.
