AMD about to launch latest mobile processors

Radeon 890M GPU could be a serious step up

AMD's latest mobile processors are nearly ready to ship and word on the street is that they will bring some serious performance gains – particularly for gamers.

The 890M is the new iGPU to launch within the new AMD Ryzen AI 300-series. It includes 16 RDNA 3.5 CUs and will run at 2,900 MHz. The last-generation 780M, found in 7000-series and 8000-series Ryzen mobile processors, contains just 12 RDNA 3 CUs at 2,800 MHz. From speeds and feeds alone, the 890M should be a decent step up in performance.

New benchmarks from GPD (spotted by HXL on X) cover its latest GPD Duo device—a compact 2-in-1 laptop fitted with an AMD Ryzen AI 9 HX 370. We can now ascertain the rough improvement with the 890M versus the 780M.

At 54W, the GPD Duo scores 4,221 in 3DMark Time Spy. GPD's own benchmarks suggest the GPD Win Max 2, powered by the 780M, scores 3,218. That means the 890M is 31 per cent faster than the 780M.

The 890M performs better than a discrete RTX 2050 running at 45W, which scored 3,769 in the same test, and just below an RTX 3050 at 50W. An iGPU with a power budget and memory shared with its CPU component competing with a dedicated graphics chip is impressive.

PC Gamer tested the ROG Ally at 30W, which comes with a semi-custom version of the Ryzen 7 7840U and the 780M, and it scored 3,180. That's a 33 per cent increase for the 890M.

The AMD Ryzen AI 300 series comes with both Zen 5 and Zen 5c cores. GPD shows these cores working well in Cinebench 2024 (R24)—a 124 single-thread score that match the Ryzen 9 7950X and a 1,525 multithreaded score that matches the Ryzen 9 5950X.
