Complete list of AMD Ryzen 9 laptops (7945HX, 7940HS, 6900HX, 6900HS)- with reviews
By Andrei Girbea, last updated on January 26, 2023

This article explains the specs and performance of the existing AMD Ryzen 9 mobile platforms and provides a detailed list of all the AMD Ryzen 9 laptops available in stores as of 2023.

While the AMD Zen 2 architecture brought Ryzen 9 processors to laptops for the first time, the market now offers a multitude of uncompromised performance and gaming notebooks based on the newer AMD Ryzen 9 platforms.

In the past, the best Ryzen 9 laptops were based on the Zen3 Ryzen 5000 Cezanne series of mobile processors, with the Ryzen 9 5900HX on the most powerful models, and the highly efficient Ryzen 9 5900HS processors available on a handful of portable formats.

As of 2022, AMD offer the Zen3+ Ryzen 6000 series (Rembrandt) of mobile processors, with the Ryzen 9 6900HX and Ryzen 9 6980HX CPUs as the new top of the stack for full-size AMD laptops, as well as the Ryzen 9 6900HS more-efficient options for ultraportable designs. Zen4-based Ryzen 7000 series laptops (Ryzen 9 7900HX and 7900HS) are also expected early into 2023, and we’ll keep you posted on the updates.

There are mostly two kinds of AMD Ryzen 9 powered computers out there: those based on the full-power H and HX processors (6900HX, 5900HX, 4900H), with a design TDP of 45++W, and the thinner-and-lighter form-factors based on the HS subseries of Ryzen 9 mobile APUs (6900HS, 5900HS, 4900HS), premium and efficient bins with a TDP of 35+W. Of course, all these can run at various power settings, and their capabilities and performance vary based on the design and thermal module of each implementation.

Update: As of early 2023, AMD launched the Ryzen 7000 series of processors, with several available specs. The Ryzen 9 7945HX 16C/32T and Ryzen 9 7845HX 12C/24T are the top-performance processors based on the Dragon Range-HX platform, meant for full-power gaming/work computers, while the Ryzen 9 7940HS 8C/16T is the more efficient Phoenix-HS platform designed for portable designs.

AMD Ryzen 9 7000 Zen4 platforms are available in full-size and portable designs in 2023

We’ll touch on what you should generally expect in terms of benchmark results from the latest Ryzen 9 processors in a bit, with more details available in our detailed reviews.

And then we’ll jump to those lists of the available Ryzen 9 7000 laptops, as well as those models launched in previous years and built on Ryzen 9 6900HX/H6900, 5900HX/HS, and 4900H/4900HS hardware, which you might still find in stores with interesting discounts.

First off, here’s a quick specs sheet of the 2023 Zen4-based Ryzen 9 Dragon Range HX and Phoenix HS processors.

The Ryzen 9 7000 Dragon Range-HX processors get a notable increase in cores, threads, and cache memory compared to the Ryzen 9 6000 HX platforms, as well as a slight increase in IPC and Core frequencies. However, they sacrifice the iGPU in the process, which is a lower-performance option with 2 EUs – this aspect doesn’t matter, though, as these Ryzen HX CPUs are always bundled with powerful dedicated graphics chips.

The Ryzen 9 7000 Phoenix-HS processors are still 8C/16T designs as in the past, but with improvements in IPC, frequencies, and cache memory, as well as an updated RDNA3-based Radeon 700M-series iGPU. Most of the Ryzen HS designs still bundle a dedicated GPU, but some of the thinner and lighter models might rely entirely on the iGPU, in which case the updates are welcomed.

And here are the specs for the previous Zen3+, Zen 3, and Zen 2 Ryzen 9 generations, for comparison:

Graphics Speed up to 2400 MHz up to 2100 MHz up to 1750 MHz up to 2100 MHz up to 2100 MHz up to 1750 MHz

The H and HX models run at higher power and higher base clocks than the HS models, but they are otherwise similar within the same generation.

With the Ryzen 6000 platforms, we’re looking at IPC improvements and various optimizations over the Zen3 and Zen 2 cores, extra cache memory, support for PCIe gen4 storage, and higher Turbo frequencies. Plus, the 6000-series APUs get the significantly improved RDNA2-based Radeon 680M integrated graphics – this might not matter for full-size Ryzen 9 notebooks with dedicated graphics, but makes a huge difference in the few Ryzen 9 portable designs designed without a dGPU. This latter aspect also plays a significant role on the Ryzen U platforms meant for ultrabooks.

That aside, there’s now a broader selection of products exclusively based on AMD and GPU hardware this year, able to harness the AMD proprietary technologies such as SmartShift or FreeSync, etc. We’ve seen SmartShift at work in the ROG G15 Advantage with the Ryzen 9 and RX 6800M configuration; with the new CPUs and the future RDNA2-based Radeon RX 7000 GPUs, AMD will be able to win more SKUs that provide a solid value/performance alternative for the AMD/Intel + Nvidia performance laptops.

As for next-gen AMD hardware, the Zen4 architecture will only make it into laptops somewhat in early in 2023, with the launch of the AMD Phoenix and Raphael Zen4 5 nm platform, thus the Ryzen 6000 Zen3+ processors power most of the AMD notebooks of the 2022 and early-2023 generations.

For what is worth, AMD Ryzen 7 mainstream alternatives are also available for each of these Ryzen 9s, still 8C/16T processors, but running at marginally lower clocks. Given the Ryzen 9 configurations are generally expensive, I’d expect good interest around the mid-range Ryzen 7 models as well.

In all fairness, though, the Ryzen 9 platforms are implemented into higher-tier performance and gaming products and are generally available on the higher-specced configurations of each unit. Unlike the AMD Ryzen 4000 specs that weren’t broadly adopted and were mostly available on lower-tier laptops with up to mid-range graphics (such as the 2020 Zephyrus G15 and G14, Dell G5 Gaming, HP Omen 15, Lenovo Legion 5), the Ryzen 7000/6000 hardware is available in top-end designs with up to RTX 4090 or Radeon 6850XT graphics, excellent screens, uncompromised builds, and the latest available features. At the same time, mid-tier and more affordable Ryzen 9 designs are still available, for those of you on middling budgets.

AMD Ryzen 9 performance insights and benchmarks

Briefly, here are some performance numbers for the Ryzen 9 6900HX and 6900HS mobile processors, as well as some comparisons to the previous AMD platforms. These are our own findings on real products that we’ve reviewed.

Note: We haven’t yet tested any of the Ryzen 9 7000 platforms. I’m updating this section in the future, as we get to review the Ryzen 9 7940HS and the full-power Ryzen 9 7945HX and Ryzen 9 7845HX processors.

First, the Cinebench loop benchmark that tests the CPU’s sustained multi-thread performance, in a few different power designs.

cinebench1 amd rzyen9 laptops

At similar power levels, the HX and HS platforms are within a few percent of each other. However, the HS hardware is also available in lower-power designs, and the performance drops by about 10-15% in a 45W design compared to a higher-power 80-90W design, which demonstrates the excellent power scaling of the Ryzen 6000 platform.

And here’s how the Ryzen 6000 hardware fares against the previous Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 4000 platforms in the same test.

cinebench2 amd rzyen9 laptops

We’re looking at a sub-10% performance increase between the Ryzen 6000 and 5000 platforms in this test, at matching power settings. However, the jump from the older Ryzen 9 4000 platforms is significant.

And here are a couple more tests:

We’re looking at 5-10% gains in multi-threaded performance for the 6900HX full-size implementations over similarly-powered Ryzen 9 5900HX models, as well as a 10-15% increase in single-core performance. Compared to the Ryzen 4000 platforms, on the other hand, the differences are significant. As for how these Ryzen 9s compare to the Intel options, we’ll cover that topic in a separate article.

With all these in mind, here are the lists of the rumored or announced portable 6900HS/5900HS/4900HS models down below, with the full-size Ryzen 9 6900HX/5900HX/4900H options further down. This article is not a selection of recommended best AMD Ryzen laptops, instead, it includes lists of all the available models built on Ryzen hardware. Our reviews will help you decide on the best pick for your needs and budget, and they are linked for each product where available.

If interested, a detailed comparison between the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX and the Intel Core i9-12900H platforms is available here.

That aside, these lists are a work in progress and we’re constantly updating them with new entries as they are launched, so if you spot something that should be in here and is not, please tell us about it in the comments sections at the end of the post.

Portable laptops with up to AMD Ryzen 6900HS 35W or 6900HX 45W hardware

This section is reserved for previous-gen lightweight and compact designs. Some are built on the efficient 35W Ryzen 9 HS platforms, either the 2022 Ryzen 6980HS/6900HS Zen3+ updates, the 2021 Ryzen 5980HS/5900HS Zen3 hardware, or the previous 4900HS generation. Others are built on full-power Ryzen H45 specs, but in lower-power designs, so will perform similarly to the HS variants at matching power. That’s because the HS hardware is still exclusive to some brands.

Update: As of early 2023, portable designs built on the AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS platform are also available. I’m updating the list below in the next few days.

    I plan to purchase a 4900 laptop this summer but not with a Nvidia graphics card in it, that is a no go. Hope is that some makers will make a dual AMD laptop with all the top mobile parts available included. I.e. CPU, GPU, screen, nvme, battery, power supply, cooling solution etc.

      So far Dell are the only ones to announce a full AMD laptop, with the G5 Special Edition. Problem is that the current AMD GPUs might no be able to compete with existing Nvidia and future Nvidia Super versions in the mobile space, so your best bet might still be with an AMD + Nvidia combo. We'll see.

      Nvidia is the only way to go. Especially if you are a content creator. Read "NVENC" It is so amazing.

    Did any of you heard about the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 PRo? Announced in August, but still no sign of it. Contacted Lenovo who doesn't give me a reply. The 7i Pro version is already out…
    Thanks for your help

    There is an error in your table. The 5980HS has a Turbo clock of 4.8GHz, not 4.4.

    I hope AMD fixes its supply problems, the 4800H was not available for months after when it was supposedly due, so I gave up in disgust and got a M1 MacBook Air instead. I doubt I will go back to x64 for at least a couple of generations at best.

    ASUS ROG Flow X13
    AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS
    NVidia RTX 3050Ti
    16 GB RAM
    Turbo Mode (35W)
    lid @ 110 degrees

    Cinebench 20
    CPU 4847
    CPU (SC) 565

    Cinebench 15
    CPU 2045
    CPU (SC) 233

    Using ARMOURY CRATE to OC the CPU to 45W, you can add about 100 to 150 points to the multithread results. However, there is rapid drop-off in the results with sustained runs. At least for my unit, the results at 45W (95C) sustained load end up being lower than keeping the unit in Turbo Mode at 35W (91C) and running the same sustained load. I suppose that the cooling solution just cannot effectively cope with the heat at 45W. Perhaps mating the unit at 45W with a cooling pad will give better results, or alternatively, trying the unit in Tent Mode. Some comments I found online is that Tent Mode makes a noticeable difference when OC to 45W.

    These results are nice for the form factor using it with the lid in a typical position. Some heavy virtual machine work is possible on this little laptop, such as running a Server 2012 and a couple of workstation VMs simultaneously.

    Horrible quality memory being used by ASUS in the latest versions of X13. ASUS told Jarrod's Tech that they are using low quality memory because they cannot buy high quality RAM. Jarrod showed in his testing that this low quality memory that ASUS is using is leaving 20% to 25% gaming performance on the table. It would seem to me that it would also reduce general system performance, such as sustained workloads, but Jarrod didn't test those scenarios.

    X13 has soldered memory. So you're out of luck.

    Here's the values of a X13 from Best Buy June 2021:

    https://ibb.co/v3krKh6

    Based upon the infos I could find online the above timing values are terrible. Reported CL is 40 !! Even with the much higher memory clock speed, the CL is not good. Now either the ZenTimings utility is not working (unlikely) or ASUS is using bottom of the barrel memory.

    HWinfo64

    https://ibb.co/YjF5fpS

    Everybody that looked at these memory spec values said they were garbage. So unless we're all missing something here, or there is something not straightforward or customary about memory on AMD systems, then I kind of am at a loss as to what to think.

    Here is Jarrod's findings between the stock ASUS memory and then the better quality memory he dropped into the ASUS Strix test system. The trend for a ASUS Strix is going to be, more or less, true of an X13.

    https://ibb.co/GHR1Xmc

    The other thing about this system is that it uses a sub-par Western Digital SSD. Not to mention that WD just got busted offloading low quality NAND onto unsuspecting OEM and consumer SSD buyers.

    https://ibb.co/JrXYGWV

    This model is reported as one of the low quality crappy WD models using low quality NAND.

    I am not sure how much of this makes any meaningful practical difference in typical daily usage. My instinct tells me very little.

    Seems bleak, right ? However, even in this configuration this X13 is a good all around performer for the money. I looked hard and couldn't find a system that matched this system's capabilities for $1350 USD.

    I'm happy with the system. There is nothing in daily use that points to lower quality components causing sub-par performance.

      Hi, thanks for your feedback.

      I'm curious how your benchmarks and gaming numbers compare to the 3050Ti G14 that I tested here (even if that's higher power 3050Ti). https://www.ultrabookreview.com/46631-asus-zephyrus-g14-2021-review/ I haven't checked for the kind of memory used in that one, and no longer have it around.

      based on my tests on the G15 advantage, the SR lower-perf memory seems to mostly impact some games, especially older titles, but the impact is smaller in benchmarks. I haven't tested Premiere, Photoshop, etc, either.

      Looks like the X13 Flow, much like the G15 Advantage, is still good value for the money, even it botched by the choice of RAM. The SSD is less of an issue as you can upgrade it, but the SR soldered RAM might be an issue for some. Are you keeping it, or will you return?

        The sub-par memory issue is detailed quite well here by Linus:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7CO9v9rpOk&t=1s

        One person told me that the memory used in the X13 is good quality for what it is. The issue is AMD's memory management and memory clock speeds running at half speed. There's quite a bit of debate and uncertainty about the memory.

        I get the whole FPS benchmarks. But for people like me that use the X13 for productivity, I am thinking the RAM density issue that causes decreased performance would only matter under a long sustained load – such as compiling something in a virtual machine that takes a half hour or longer. It's hard to know if it is relevant under typical productivity use cases whenever hardware experts and enthusiasts are still trying to sort it out.

        I am not much of a gamer. I was calling the reported hardware issues out so that serious gamers might be informed.

        As far as CPU benchmarks, the G14 gets about 4-6% better benchmarks than the X13 configuration I have. dGPU wise, I cannot say much. What I do know is that the 3050Ti running on 35W is only an incremental improvement on the 1650Ti\1660. On the G14 more wattage is pushed to the 3050Ti so I would expect the G14 system to outperform the X13.

        The SSD is limited by its 2230 form factor. There's just not any great 2230 SSDs on the market.

        I am really picky about laptops and I gotta tell ya, honestly, I really like this X13. Typically, I buy Dell XPS or Lenovo X1 Thinkpads. I like this X13 better than the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. Don't misunderstand me on this. If Dell made an XPS 13 2-in-1 with an AMD 5900HS, then that would be what I would be typing on at this moment.

        I more or less "fell" into the X13. I read your review and decided to check it out. It turned out to be a real surprise. For what you get, it is almost what I'd call a "whale of a deal."

    Here is a UserBenchmark

    https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/45765737

    Not bad. RAM is the bottleneck, but it appears that ASUS got it optimized to work with the eGPU as that config competes right up there were the top performing laptops.

    Seems like this list leaves out all the HP EliteBook 8xx G9 editions, which many of has the Ryzen 9 processor. Is this right?
