AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Mobile CPUs
AMD unveiled their new Ryzen 4000 series mobile CPUs at CES 2020, with the flagship Ryzen 7 4800H designed to provide desktop performance for laptops. The new Ryzen 7 4800H provides Core i7-9700K desktop performance in the laptop form factor, while the new Ryzen 7 4800U delivers 8C/16T at just 15W. Expect over 100 designs of Ryzen 4000 series powered laptops in 2020.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
The beast is finally here! AMD unleashed its insane 64-core/128-thread Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor during its CES 2020 keynote, powered by the kick ass Zen 2 architecture and packing up to 288W of cache. AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 3990X will cost $3990 (surprised?) when it launches on February 7 to kick more Intel ass.
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
AMD's release of the mid-range Radeon RX 5600 XT wasn't too much of a surprise considering how many leaks there were on it before its announcement at CES 2020, but mid-range Navi and the use of GDDR6 is great to see. AMD is still using the Navi 10 GPU architecture made on the 7nm node here with the RX 5600 XT, as well as 6GB of GDDR6 at 12Gbps.
Intel Ice Lake + DG1
Intel had a tiny showing of its upcoming Tiger Lake architecture, powered by Xe GPU cores -- not only that, but the new Tiger Lake chip will be made on the 10nm+ node while Intel teased its DG1 discrete graphics at CES 2020. There was nothing held up on stage, but it makes it into our 'Best of CES 2020' awards because it references Intel's return to discrete graphics -- and I loved the old school Intel i740 back in the AGP days.
