Preliminary Performance Figures
Look at that, Intel's integrated graphics don't stand a chance in this DX12 benchmark, and we see almost double the performance compared to AMD's own FX SoC. The Ryzen 7 2700U beats an i7-7500U with a GTX 950M. The GTX 950M at the time of its release in 2015, was known as an upper mid-range mobile GPU for DX11 games. Regardless, I had a notebook with a GTX 960M in it, and it was capable of playing almost every game I needed it to but at slightly lower resolutions. The fact that AMD has moved the bar up so much in regards to an integrated graphics processor means that we might not see NVIDIA coming out with lower tiered mobile graphics.
The i7-8550U and Ryzen 7 2700U are both 4-core 8-thread CPUs; we will hold judgment on all these results until we get our own units. However, preliminary results look extremely promising, especially when it comes to multi-threaded performance in CINEBENCH. Same amount of cores and threads and AMD's 2700U is showing an almost 50% performance increase over Intel's mobile processor. AMD has also gone ahead and compared the 4-core 8-thread 2700U against the 4-core 4-thread 7600K, the interesting thing to notice here is that the 7600K uses more than 600% more power.
One of the most interesting things we want to explore is how powerful the integrated graphics of the CPU are. AMD's competition didn't really enhance anything inside their integrated graphics in their latest iteration, and AMD is coming strong with excellent improvements. You are actually able to get playable FPS out of an integrated graphics when playing five of the most popular games. AMD has gone ahead and made a chart/map of where it stands in regards to the competition, and from what we can see things are looking awesome!
AMD is working with three vendors; HP, Lenovo, and Acer for the initial launch. The HP Envy X360 with the Ryzen 5 2500U and Lenovo Ideapad 720S with either the Ryzen 5 or 7 CPUs will be available soon.
The Acer Swift 3 will also be available very soon with either the Ryzen 5 2500u or Ryzen 7 2700U processors. We can't take to take a look!
