AMD Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series Processors for Mobile
Built on TSMC’s advanced 6nm manufacturing technology, the new Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series Processors for mobile offer the perfect balance of speed, style and endurance. With smart battery management and dedicated video and audio playback hardware, systems featuring the Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series processors are ideal for video conferencing and collaboration, office productivity and multitasking, and connecting with family and friends, when at home or on the go.
Over 90% of laptop users surveyed say “being on the go” with their system is important, and on average use their laptops on battery for three hours a day. On the extreme end, almost a third of respondents spend up to ten hours a day on battery power. The combination of TSMC 6nm technology and the innovative Ryzen 7020 architecture allow AMD Ryzen processors to deliver premium system battery life at a mainstream system price point – up to 12 hours of unplugged power[i]. The Ryzen 7020 Series Processers also offer best-in-class performance, with up to 58% faster multitasking and 31% faster application launch speed than the competition on the AMD Ryzen 3 7320U CPU [ii].
Thanks to the AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture, AMD Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series processors for mobile support up to 4 displays powered by the integrated Radeon™ 610M Series graphics and advanced decode support[iii] for high-resolution streaming.
Systems featuring Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series processors are Windows 11 ready, and feature a Microsoft Pluton security processor4 for full support of Windows 11 security features. The new processors also come with a new modern platform and advanced technology support, including:
- Modern Standby
- Fast Charging
- Fast LPDDR5 Memory
Systems featuring Ryzen and Athlon 7020 Series processors for mobile are expected to be available from global OEM partners including Acer, HP and Lenovo beginning in Q4 2022, starting at an SEP of $399 USD.
