AMD has finally announced the official release of its enthusiast-grade Ryzen 7045 “Dragon Range” laptop CPUs, which provide impressive efficiency, performance, and gaming dominance in sleek and stylish designs. The AMD Dragon Range CPUs are aimed at the high-performance laptop segment, with more cores, threads, and cache than AMD has previously offered, whereas the Phoenix Point CPUs are aimed at the thin and light laptop segment.
TDP ratings for Dragon Range CPUs will be around 55W-75W+, while Phoenix Point CPUs will be around 35-45W. The base configuration has a TDP of 55W, and we can expect the chip to be configurable up to 75W for laptop designs with high-end cooling and larger form factors.
All AMD Ryzen 7045 “Dragon Range” CPUs include overclocking support in the form of PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive), which has been shown in recent tests to provide a nice performance boost of up to 5%. We’ve already seen the trio of Ryzen 9 7945HX, Ryzen 9 7845HX, and Ryzen 7 7745HX chips in action, and they absolutely destroy Intel in terms of performance efficiency.
AMD’s latest official gaming performance chart pits the Ryzen 9 7945HX against the Intel Core i9-13950HX in a variety of games.
At 1080p High settings, the Dragon Range CPU achieves a 10% average and up to a blisteringly fast 45% performance gain. Because the Core i9-13980HX is simply a higher-clocked (+100 MHz) 13950HX, there’s no doubt that the Dragon Range chip will outperform it, making it the “World’s Most Powerful Mobile Processor” for gaming to date.
AMD has added four new SKUs to its Dragon Range lineup, including the Ryzen 9 7945HX, which has 16 cores and 32 threads, the Ryzen 9 7845HX, which has 12 cores and 24 threads, the Ryzen 7 7745HX, which has 8 cores and 16 threads, and the Ryzen 5 7645HX, which has 6 cores and 12 threads.
When compared to the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX, the new flagship Ryzen 9 7945HX CPU provides up to an 18% increase in single-threaded performance, a 78% increase in multi-threaded performance, and a 62% increase in gaming performance.
