Notebooks equipped with Ryzen 7040HS series processors has been expected to launch as soon as April

As previously reported, AMD reduced the integrated GPU frequencies of all three Ryzen 7040HS series processors by 200MHz without providing an explanation. Recently, AMD issued a brief statement announcing that laptops featuring the Ryzen 7040HS series processors would experience delayed launches.

AMD’s statement reads: “To align with platform readiness and ensure the best possible user experience, we now expect our OEM partners to launch the first notebooks powered by Ryzen 7040HS Series processors in April.”

At CES 2023, AMD unveiled three Ryzen 7040HS series processors: the Ryzen 9 7940HS, Ryzen 7 7840HS, and Ryzen 5 7640HS. AMD initially announced that OEM partners would introduce laptops with Ryzen 7040HS series processors starting in March 2023. Unlike the Ryzen 7045 mobile processors, which feature up to two CCDs and sixteen cores, the Ryzen 7040HS series focuses on GPU performance. The Ryzen 9 7940HS and Ryzen 7 7840HS are equipped with Radeon 780M integrated GPUs, utilizing the latest RDNA 3 architecture and comprising 12 CUs (768 stream processors). After the clock reduction, the Ryzen 9 7940HS’ GPU boost clock is 2.8GHz, while the Ryzen 7 7840HS’s is slightly lower at 2.7GHz.

The Ryzen 5 7640HS features a Radeon 760M integrated GPU based on the RDNA 3 architecture, with 8 CUs (512 stream processors) and a GPU boost clock of 2.6GHz. Compared to the previous-generation Radeon 660M, the Radeon 760M exhibits improvements in architecture, CU count, and boost clock, anticipating a significant performance enhancement.
