The new Ryzen 7045HX mobile processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, codenamed Dragon Range, has four 55W TDP chips with 6 to 16 cores. The AMD Ryzen 7045 is a repurposed desktop processor aimed at the high-performance laptop segment.
AMD HX and Intel HX processors have a wide range of cores, high frequency, and integrated graphics, but they're all designed to work with powerful discrete graphics cards.
AMD tested the flagship Ryzen 9 7945HX processor with the Intel Core i9-12900HX chip from the previous generation. The Ryzen 7745HX and 7645HX are also evaluated against the Core i7-12700H and Core i5-12500H, respectively.
Intel also offers the i5-12600HX or i5-12450HX processors, although they are not included in the official positioning table.
The popular i7-11800H processor in gaming laptops has been replaced by 13th generation Core processors, but AMD's comparison was made in December 2022, when Intel processors were not yet available. The Dragon Range's objective is to compete with the existing 12th Gen Core line that consumers are familiar with.
AMD's 8-core 7745HX and 6-core 7645HX processors will compete with Intel's 12th Gen Core i7 and Core i5 lineup. In their comparison, AMD claims up to a 6% increase in responsiveness (this applies to single-core performance) and up to a 25% increase in multitasking performance compared to the Core i7-12700H.
AMD has stated that the first laptops with the Ryzen 7045 should be released in February.
