AMD releases Ryzen 5 2600H and Ryzen 7 2800H specifications

These notebook APUs support 3200MHz memory out of the box.



Read more about AMD's Ryzen 5 2600H and Ryzen 7 2800H gaming APUs.

I'm Surprised AMD hasn't released some higher core count cpus for notebooks yet

Their higher core count CPUs don't have iGPUs, making them a non-starter in the laptop market for the most part. There are a few notebooks with their Six-core and eight core models though Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryen 7 2700, but they are not really "small and light".

Me too. While WYP has a point, gaming and workstation laptops come with discrete GPUs and a Zen+ CPU would likely reach pretty good performance at 35-45W, making for a potent combination.

Very doubtable. Would almost certainly just result in significant portions of dark silicon or such cripplingly low clocks you'd probably be better off with dark silicon. You have more waste heat due to having to have two memory controllers, two banks of memory, external chipset(The APUs are a full SoC), ect that in total would almost certainly lead to at least 20Ws of wasted energy in comparison to an APU based system. And this is besides the fact you'd likely have needed 70W+ minimum from the get go to make proper use of more than one CCX and 11 Vega cores without them throttling.

Pretty sure he was referring to a Ryzen non APU chip with a dedicated Nvidia graphics as an example.

Yep. Take something like a Ryzen 7 2700, lower clocks a little, use the same socket (die size is about the same as Raven Ridge), and you've got a pretty decent mobile CPU that could be paired with a discrete GPU. A 45W Ryzen 7 2700E has already been leaked, so a 35W-45W mobile CPU is certainly possible.
