AMD took to CES 2018 with a smattering of partner products and designs that take advantage of the company's mobile implementation of its Ryzen CPUs (and ZEN architecture). At its CES 2018 booth, AMD showcased products from HP and Lenovo, and our lucky coverage agents even managed to catch AMD CEO, Lisa Su, in her visit/inspection to her company's CES 2018 presence (extra Easter-egg after the break).
The products on display included one HP AIO, one Dell AIO, one HP and one Lenovo laptop, as well as pre-built systems from the likes of Dell (under its own brand and the Alienware brand) and Lenovo. The HP Pavilion AIO 24 makes use of AMD's Ryzen Mobile 2500U with Radeon Vega 8 graphics, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2 TB HDD. The other AIO in the house, a Dell Inspiron 7775, packs a desktop-class Ryzen 7 1700, discrete Radeon RX 580 graphics, 16 GB of DDR4 memory, a 256 GB SSD, and a 1 TB HDD for all your storage needs.
The HP Laptop, the Envy x360, makes use of an AMD Ryzen 2500U APU with Vega 8 graphics, employs 16 GB of DDR4 memory, and a 256 GB SSD (interesting how a laptop form-factor includes a more balanced system than what transpired on an AIO such as the HP Pavilion 24, isn't it?).
The Lenovo Ideapad 720S laptop, on the other hand, is the more interesting of both laptops: it sports AMD's Ryzen 2700U with Vega 10 graphics, 8 GB DDR4 memory, and a 256 GB SSD. Granted, the extra processing and graphics power is welcome; however, there is something to be said about the usage of 8 GB RAM, as even some gaming workloads have begun to require more than just those 8 GB.
As to the pre-built systems, AMD showed off a Dell Inspiron 5675, with a Ryzen 7 1700X processor, an RX 470 graphics card, 16 GB DDR4 and a 1 TB HDD; also recognizable is Alienware's Area-51 system, with its bold looks and cooling design; and two other systems, one of which is Lenovo-branded.
