As the third generation of AMD Ryzen Mobile processors, the new 4000 Series provides unprecedented performance levels, significant design enhancements, and incredible power efficiency for ultrathin and gaming laptops. AMD also announced the AMD Athlon 3000 Series Mobile Processor family powered by “Zen” architecture, enabling modern computing experiences with real performance for a wider range of laptop users. Consumers will be able to purchase the first AMD Ryzen 4000 Series and Athlon 3000 Series powered laptops from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and others starting in Q1 2020, with more systems expected to launch throughout 2020 with global OEM partners.
In addition, AMD announced the highly anticipated 64-core, 128-thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X will be available globally expected February 7, 2020.
