AMD's Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 with Vega muscle into Intel's mobile space

AMD just opened a new beachhead in its war Intel by launching two Ryzen laptop CPUs it claims with being the “world’s fastest processor” for ultrabooks.

The two chips launched this morning are:

  • The Ryzen 7 2700U features four cores with symmetrical multi-threading and 10 compute units based on the Vega graphics architecture. The chip has a base clock speed of 2.2GHz and boost speed of 3.8GHz. The GPU will clock “up to” 1,300MHz.
  • The Ryzen 5 2500U also has four cores with SMT. The main difference between it ans the Ryzen 7 2700U is the graphics core and clock speed of the CPU and GPU. The Ryzen 5 has 8 compute units instead of 10, and its cores will clock up to 1,100MHz. The compute cores will hit 2GHz with a boost clock of 3.6GHz.

Both chips are rated at 15-watt TDP, which puts them in direct battle with the Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs used in the vast majority of laptops.
