Computex 2019: AMD claim that 50% of 2019’s “modern” laptops will be powered by Ryzen Mobile

Speaking at their Computex press conference, AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su talked up the rising adoption of their second-generation Ryzen Mobile CPUs

Specifically, Su made the claim that around 50% of “modern devices” this year will feature the new Ryzen mobile chipsets. Where previous Ryzen Mobile laptops have primary concerned themselves with specific niches like portable power-users, Su now say that there will be Ryzen Mobile options for "all price points" and from "all the top OEMs."

Who will be making those devices? Well, during the presentation, representatives from several of AMD’s OEM partners appeared. As did a list that included names like Samsung, Lenovo, Dell, HP, Acer and ASUS.

Interestingly, Huawei appears to have been quietly dropped from the Ryzen Mobile partner line-up. Given the quality of their recent Matebook hardware, this is a shame – but given recent events involving the company, it’s not a massive surprise.

During the AMD press conference, a representative from Acer claimed that the OEM will soon begin selling Ryzen-powered notebook PCs for customers across the education, thin & light and Chromebook markets. They're even selling a new Nitro 5 gaming notebook that incorporates both a Ryzen CPU and AMD's new 7-nanometer Radeon RX 5000 graphics card.

If this move by Acer is a sign of things to come, it could potentially shake up Intel's long-standing dominance in the notebook market. Assuming Intel's own impending entry into the graphics hardware space doesn't pay off, that is.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
