NEC LAVIE N15 features AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition ‘Renoir’ CPU

Published: 8th Jul 2020, 05:38 GMT   Comments

The rumored Ryzen 7 Extreme has turned out to be a real processor, but probably not what we expected.

Ryzen 7 Extreme is a low-power processor

Back in May, APISAK spotted two unreleased AMD processors: Ryzen 4900U and Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition. We have not heard anything about those processors ever since. Today NEC has unveiled first notebooks featuring the new Extreme variant of the low-power processor.

The Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition is an 8-core and 16-thread mobile processor based on Renoir silicon. It features a base clock of 1.8 GHz and a boost clock of 4.2 GHz.

The first laptop to feature this processor is NEV LAVIE N15, which is also offered with Ryzen 4000U series and Intel Comet Lake-U. NEC has not confirmed the TDP of this particular processor, but we are guessing it is around 15W, just as the rest of the Renoir-U series. The series has configurable TDP between 10 to 25W.

At the time of writing it was unclear what the differences between Ryzen 7 4800U and Ryzen 7 Extreme really are. Since no other brand has announced a notebook with such a processor, it could simply be a custom variant for NEC.

That said, AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme appears to be exclusive to the NEC laptop, which judging from the news is only for the Japanese market.
