AMD revealed its Ryzen 3000 series and “Picasso” A-series mobile processors at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
The new AMD Ryzen H-series and U-series processors are designed for the full laptop performance stack. The H-series have higher TDP, and will be used in gaming laptops and high-performance workstations. The U-series have a keener focus on power consumption, and will therefore be used in ultrathins and mainstream devices.
In its press release, AMD states that the Ryzen 7 3700 can edit media up to 29 per cent faster than the Intel Core i7-8700U and offer up to 10 hours of video playback time.

The chips are built upon the AMD Zen+ microarchitecture. As an improvement to the original Zen architecture, Zen+ uses more refined transistors and have improved self-overclocking capabilities. In addition, it also amends the cache and memory latency issues in the original Zen. All chips will use AMD Radeon Vega graphics.
The AMD Ryzen 3000-series mobile processors will be available in Q1 2019 in devices from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Huawei, Lenovo, and Samsung.
