Back in January this year, during CES 2023, AMD announced that it would be launching a whole range of processors, both desktop and mobile, based on its new Zen4 architecture, chief among them being its Rzyen 7045 HX Series mobile CPUs. Well earlier last week, that mobile series officially became available and will now begin shipping out in the laptops of different OEM partners.
The new Ryzen 7045HX series, also known by its codename Dragon Range, is essentially a direct port from AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors, and feature just as many cores as their desktop SKUs. By that, we mean that you’re looking at 16-cores, 12-cores, 8-cores, and 6-cores mobile processors. As for the official designation of these SKUs, you’ve got the Ryzen 9 7945HX and 7845HX, Ryzen 7 7745HX, and Ryzen 5 7645HX.
Specs-wise, the 7945HX is the lineup’s top-tier mobile CPU, featuring a 16-cores, 32-threads configuration – twice as many as its predecessor, the 6900HX – and has a base and boost clock of 2.5GHz and 5.4GHz, respectively. Moreover, the CPU has a power bracket, requiring anywhere between 55W and 75W, making it one of the most power-hungry mobile processors in AMD’s repertoire. Lastly, it has a combined L2 and L3 Cache size of 80MB.
In terms of performance, AMD claims in the official presentation that the 7945HX averages about 10% faster performance in gaming than its direct competitor, Intel’s Core i9-13950HX mobile processor. At least, when it comes to gaming at Full HD resolution, and that is across a wide array of game titles.
At the time of writing, AMD says that the 7945HX, 7845HX, 7745HX, and 7645HX will begin appearing in the laptops of its OEM partners, with ASUS and its updated Scar G17 and Zephyrus Duo laptops being just a couple of models that will be shipping out with said CPUs. On that note, more laptop models with the CPU will also be arriving soon
