In general, the Ryzen family of processors have helped AMD back into the limelight in a big way. That being said, they are still generally limited to the desktop segment of the market. However, that might soon change though as several OEMs will apparently announce their Ryzen Mobile-based products very soon.
This was confirmed by Dr. Lisa Su, the President and CEO of AMD during the company Q317 earnings call yesterday. For those who are not familiar with the Ryzen Mobile processors, they are generally a fusion of Zen CPU cores together with the Vega GPU cores and is designed for ultra-thin as well as 2-in-1 notebooks.
According to Dr. Lisa, Acer, HP, and Lenovo have planned to the first batch of Ryzen Mobile-based products in the coming weeks. AMD also expects that premium notebooks featuring the new chip will be made available within the first quarter of 2018.
As leaks related to the new Ryzen Mobile APU have begun to appear online, we certainly not surprised by what AMD has revealed during its financial call yesteray. With that, we are interested to see how OEMs going to approach the new Ryzen Mobile chips for their products.
