Because as AMD CEO Lisa Su recently told CRN, the channel has become an "incredibly important part" of AMD's business, as the company is "growing by leaps and bounds in the channel". And key among its announcements this year was the long-awaited Ryzen 5000 processor family for mobile.

A notch below the HX is the H-series, which has a TDP at 45 watts. And now, as expected, the firm is launching its Ryzen 5000 processor family for mobile, which is powered by the same Zen 3 core as the Ryzen 5000 desktop chips. The high-end offering in the H-series is the AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS that has eight cores and 16 threads, offering a 3.0GHz clock speed that can be boosted up to 4.8GHz.

Last year, AMD surged forward on the strength of its Ryzen 4000 mobile processors and Ryzen 5000 desktop processor families. According to AMD's slides, the 5600U is faster in single-threaded code than the 5700U but modestly slower in multi-threaded code. All of AMD's disclosures focused on the CPU side of the equation, which implies the GPU isn't changing much.

And then there's the U-series, which prioritizes both performance and efficiency, such as battery life. The company didn't have much to show - just the results of a single benchmark claiming a dual-socket Epyc equipped with two Milan 32-core CPUs was 46 percent faster than an equivalent system outfitted with Xeon Gold 6258R 28-core chips.

AMD's Milan and Intel's Ice Lake Xeons will slug it out against each other later this year, but without more details, we can't say much about AMD's claims. The Ryzen 9 5900HX has 45W+ TDP and will power 2021's best gaming notebooks but has not revealed more information about the upcoming hardware.
