HUAWEI released compact laptops based on new AMD processors
Along with the updated MateBook X and the new MateBook B series laptops, HUAWEI also showed the new MateBook 13/14 Ryzen Edition. They are built on the basis of Ryzen 4000 H-series processors with a large amount of internal memory. In addition to the powerful filling, laptops are compact in size and high-quality screens with a non-standard aspect ratio.
HUAWEI MateBook 13/14 Ryzen Edition is equipped with either a six-core Ryzen 5 4600H or an eight-core Ryzen 7 4800H depending on the configuration. The TDP of these processors can reach 45W, which is significantly higher compared to the 15W in the energy-efficient U-series chips. In return, users get more performance with clock speeds up to 4.2 GHz and an integrated Vega 7 GPU.
According to the manufacturer, the new laptops are able to launch a 1GB PPT file in just 2.5 seconds, while it takes just 2.6 seconds to batch modify 300 7.5GB images using Lightroom. Devices only need 4 minutes 10 seconds to compile code with 3.4 million lines.
Along with the increased performance, the manufacturer has worked to improve the cooling system. Its thickness has increased by 40%, and the number of blades has increased by 49%, which allows more efficient heat transfer from the processor.
The laptops are equipped with a 2K screen (2160x1440) with a non-standard aspect ratio of 3: 2, which increases the amount of information displayed when working with text or in a browser. Due to the thin bezels in the 13-inch model, the display occupies 88% of the area, and in the 14-inch - 90%. The matrices have 100% sRGB color gamut and are Rheinland certified, which means they are safe on the eyes. Options with touch screens are available.
Announced support for fast charging from a complete adapter with a power of 65 W, which is compatible with smartphones of the company. The power button has a built-in fingerprint scanner for fast and secure authorization in the system.
New items are made in metal cases 14.9 mm thick and weighing 1.3 kg for the 13-inch model and 15.9 mm and 1.49 kg for the 14-inch model.
