AMD Unveils Ryzen 7 7840U, a High-Performance Processor for Ultra-Thin Gaming Laptops

Gaming laptops have traditionally been bulky, but advancements in technology have made it possible to achieve better performance on thinner devices. In April, AMD confirmed the development of Ryzen Z1 and Z1 Extreme processors, designed primarily for ASUS ROG Ally portable PC gaming devices. Today, AMD introduced the Ryzen 7 7840U, a high-performance processor specifically engineered for ultra-thin laptops.

The Ryzen 7 7840U boasts 8 cores and 16 threads, with a top frequency of 5.1GHz. It also features an integrated Radeon 7801M GPU, providing 12 cores and a maximum frequency of 2.7GHz. AMD proudly showcased slides comparing the 7840U’s performance to that of Intel’s 1360P and Apple’s M2. At least from AMD’s charts, the 7840U seems capable of outperforming the Apple M2.
