Being spotted recently on 3DMark and found in some leaks earlier, Xiaomi was supposed to bring new RedmiBook laptops with AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors. Now the presence of the RedmiBook 16 with a 16.1-inch display along with Renoir APUs seems confirmed.
Alongside the Redmi 10X series, Xiaomi will officially be launching three laptops: RedmiBook 13, 14S and 16 with new 7nm AMD processors on May 26th. The Chinese giant has also been boasting about the capabilities of the upcoming RedmiBook 16 on Weibo.
As per the posters, the RedmiBook 16 will feature a big 16.1-inch display with 90% screen-to-body ratio and 3.26 mm thick bezels on three sides of the display which makes it easier to fit a 16.1-inch screen in a 15-inch body. Also, another poster confirms the fact that the display will come with a 100% sRGB wide colour gamut.
The RedmiBook has a lot of similarity to the recently launched Honor MagicBook Pro 2020 with the same 16.1-inch display, 90% screen-to-body ratio and covers 100% sRGB coverage. But it features the costlier Intel CPUs with up to Core i7-10510U CPU & NVIDIA GeForce MX350 discrete GPU.
Xiaomi’s approach of going with the cost-efficient and powerful AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile APUs makes much more sense as it delivers superior performance both on the CPU as well as GPU front. It almost demolishes every 10th Gen CPU out there coming at a significantly lower price point and the iGPU even beats NVIDIA’s laptop GPUs by a considerable margin.
As per the latest 3DMark listings, the RedmiBook 16 will give to APUs to choose from i.e. the 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U and 8-core AMD the Ryzen 7 4700U. Having just 15W TDP and the energy efficiency of the Zen 2 cores we can expect longer battery life than ever before.
The RedmiBook 16 will also give 16 GB of RAM which will give enough headroom for iGPU to allocate VRAM and it also features 512 GB of Samsung’s PM881 SSD storage. According to the Jingdong page, the laptop will be available for sale at 13:59 Chinese Time on May 26th.
