As if its initial Ryzen Mobile 4000 announcements weren’t impressive enough, AMD revealed two more tricks up its sleeve today: the Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HS. These halo products will be found in high-performance gaming and creative laptops, which should be available beginning in the Spring.
The AMD Ryzen 9 4900H is an 8C/16T, 45-W TDP APU with 12 MB of cache and a boost/base frequency of 4.4/3.3 GHz. Its Vega-based GPU features 8 graphics cores and a graphics frequency of 1750 MHz.
The AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS is its more efficient and higher-prized sibling, with a TDP of just 35 W. Its specifications are identical to the non-S variant aside from slightly lower boost/base frequencies (4.3/3.0 GHz).
According to slides shared by AMD, ASUS’s 14-inch ROG Zephyrus G14 can power through most of today’s most popular games at admirable frame rates at 1080p/high settings thanks to its Ryzen 9 4900HS chip and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2090 Max-Q mobile GPU. Triple-A games such as F1 2019 and Strange Brigade can hit up to 121 FPS, while competitive hits such as Rocket League and CS:GO can reach 229 FPS.
