AMD unveils overclocked Ryzen 5000HS Creator Edition processors

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS and Ryzen 7 5800HS processors were exclusive to Asus laptops until recently, but those days are over: AMD now has Ryzen 5000HS Creator Edition processors that are faster and also available to other laptop manufacturers. The first was Lenovo. Interestingly, these rather powerful processors are included in the configuration of the compact, thin, and light laptops Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro and Yoga 14S.

The main difference between the Creator Edition processors and the regular versions is in the increased clock speed: in the case of the Ryzen 9 5900HS Creator, it is 3.3 GHz instead of 3.0 GHz, and in the case of the Ryzen 7 5800HS Creator - 3.2 GHz instead of 2.8 GHz. The increase in the base frequency is by an impressive 300 and 400 MHz, but the maximum has remained unchanged. The TDP value of the new CPUs has not been reported, but it will likely be 35W. Both processors, recall, are eight-core, with an integrated GPU Vega 8.

As for the Yoga Slim 7 Pro and Yoga 14S laptops themselves, in addition to the new processors, they received discrete graphics - in the form of Nvidia GeForce MX450 dGPUs, as well as 2.4K or 2.8K screens with a frame rate of 60 or 90 Hz. If the graphics subsystem were more powerful, Lenovo's new products could compete with the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, built on Ryzen 5000HS processors, but the GeForce MX450 is not designed for games. But for content creation (for example, video processing), such models are quite suitable.
