When AMD introduced its Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs at CES, the company made bold claims of game-changing performance. Coming off of years of underwhelming laptop chips, AMD promised it had optimized Ryzen 4000 for mobile computing.

Now we’ve tested those claims in AMD’s Ryzen 9 4900HS chip, which AMD announced March 16. It's a 7nm, 8-core/16-thread chip with a base clock of 3GHz and a boost clock of 4.3GHz. It also offers 8 Radeon Vega cores. The ‘H’ means it’s intended for power users, and the ‘S’ means it’s for “slim”-profile laptops. We’re stunned at the CPU’s impressive tour de force that defeats just about every Intel 8th- and 9th-gen laptop CPU we’ve ever seen.

Our testbed is the amazing Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 ($1,450 at Asus.com), a 14-inch laptop which also offers Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. AMD promises about 100 more partner products in the near future. Keep reading to learn how this chip brings AMD back into the mobile game—and why Intel should be worried.

When it comes to productivity, coding and security AMD has never beaten out Intel.

If you are an average user dong general productivity, then AMD CPUs will never provide the full benefit that it hypes. So they are a waste of money if you need every ounce of performance.

No offense, but your comment is somewhat ridiculous on every aspect.

Not only AMD has been winning on productivity since the first Ryzen series, but Intel has had way more security issues (which have crippled their CPU performance overall).

As for coding it makes no sense, as the majorly of people are going to code in high level, not to mention AMD made sure to make Ryzen more similar to Intel (to avoid the mistake they made with Bulldozer).

2020 is calling, are you there?

Market statistics do not support such claims.

At a trade show, AMD and Intel side by side, Intel is still winning the benchmarks.

It is like this year in, year out. AMD fanbois screaming AMD is murdering Intel. Yet in the marketplace, when it comes down to real world use, Intel always wins.

Intel fanboy?
Huston we have problem! 😂

Nope. No Intel fanbois. I own AMD systems because they are cheaper.
Intel performance is just backed up by mountains of data.

But nice try though.
Care to share said data?

No offense, but a quick Google search will prove you wrong on many fronts, unless your only looking at pre Ryzen days which is irrelevant now.

Since AMD released Ryzen, they have pretty much been kicking Intel's butt. Intel has been plagued with secuirty issues and they keep coming. Not saying AMD is perfect, but they're no where near Intel when it comes to security issues.

If it wasnt for AMDs past issues with supplying OEMs, AMD would be in more computers coming from manufacturers.

The only metric where Intel still has a slight edge is single core tasks aka gaming, but anything using multi threads (ie: rendering, compiling, multitasking, etc...) AMD is beating Intel significantly and is doing it cheaper too. Intel cant even manufacture anything past 14nm atm, meanwhile AMD is already talking about 5nm.

Ever wonder why Intel has been slashing prices for their CPU's, I'll give you a hint, AMD is better than them atm and they know it.
