The flagship processor that will be part of the new batch of models of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series for laptops, the AMD Ryzen 3750H, could reach the market from next April 2019. This would show that AMD has already secured the production of these new models, manufactured in the same 12 nm node in which the current AMD Ryzen 2000 series processors are being manufactured for desktop computers (except APU, which are still manufactured in the 14 nm node).
Just a few days ago we learned that several manufacturers of laptops, were considering launching configurations with the AMD Ryzen 3000 processors for laptops, along with the graphics cards NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce RTX 2060. These manufacturers would have been forced to make this decision, in the absence of sufficient processors supplied by Intel.
Today we learned that the beginning of the commercialization of the new processors AMD Ryzen 3000, intended to be used in laptops, would be so close to occur, that it is expected that the first models using these processors, would reach the market at the beginning of the month April. This news is, in fact, quite bad news for Intel, given that it is expected that its new processors for laptops, which will belong to the 9th Core Generation, would not really reach the market until a month later: in May 2019. This is something that we mentioned a few days ago, when we talked about the new Intel Core i7-9750H. Although, knowing Intel, it would not be surprising that they modified the release date, to get ahead of AMD.
It is clear that laptop processors would repeat the same trend we have seen so far in the desktop market: the Intel Core 9th Generation processors would still be ahead of the new AMD Ryzen 3000 processors for laptops. Here there would be no surprise, since the new processors of AMD, would be revised versions of their current APU of the Ryzen 2000 series. And they would continue to incorporate Vega graphics cards as iGPU inside.
However, although these new processors do not have a computing capacity as high as the Core processors (in the absence of seeing how Core i7-9750H processors operate, in terms of temperatures), the reality is that these power differences are not SO important when it comes to playing with these models. And in this regard, if the rumors are fulfilled and we begin to see configurations that unite the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H (which, as we said, will be the top of the range of AMD for laptops), with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics cards or RTX 2060, it could be AMD that ended up taking the cat to the water in the gaming laptops segment.
Of course, if they end up complying with the price estimates that are being handled for these combos in laptops, they could be a very serious contender for models that assemble Intel processors.
