Thin and Light gaming laptops are finally a thing, and here is why you can thank AMD for it

When you think of gaming laptops, what comes to your mind are mostly big and bulky machines with multiple cooling vents. They are sometimes so bulky that it becomes a hassle to carry them around and what is the use of a laptop if it is not portable? New innovations, however, are ushering in an era of change in this segment, and AMD is at the forefront of this revolution. The market is now full of gaming laptops that are light and thin but do not compromise on gaming performance.

This quality of modern laptops is compact yet delivers outstanding gaming performance, thanks to cutting-edge technology perfected by AMD over time. Thanks to these innovations, gamers can now play their demanding games on powerful laptops. Years of research and development have enabled AMD to create this kind of impact on the gaming laptop market. Let’s see how this is achieved.

AMD Ryzen™ laptop processors

The arrival of AMD’s Ryzen™ processors provided some much-needed competition in the CPU space of the day. Currently, the company’s Ryzen™6000 series of mobile processors is the go-to CPU series for laptop manufacturers seeking super-fast clock speeds as well as better battery performance. Apart from these two factors, another factor was very important during the development of these CPUs – enabling thin and light form factors. All these are of great benefit to the gamers.

AMD Ryzen™6000 series laptop processors ship with the latest Gen 3+ CPU core as well as advanced AMD RDNA 2 architecture graphics, making them ideal for playing high-end games on laptops. They use 6nm process technology while maintaining 8 high-performance cores and 16 processing threads. And these threads have the ability to rapidly scale from 45W to 15W, leading to great battery life.

Laptop processors rarely have onboard GPUs powerful enough to play games at 1080p resolution. But the Ryzen™6000 Mobile series comes with built-in AMD Radeon 600M graphics for superior visuals. Whether it’s a high-intensity online game with plenty of contemporary players or a AAA RPG with a vast open world, you can expect top-class performance from Ryzen Mobile CPUs. Additionally, the added benefit of technologies such as AMD FidelityFX™Super Resolution (FSR) or AMD Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) greatly enhances the gaming experience.

AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Mobile GPUs

Gaming laptops need to have decent graphic cards to pack a real punch, and AMD has that area covered too. The Radeon™ RX 6000 series beautifully complements the Ryzen™ 6000 series to deliver life-like graphics in your games. Again, these GPUs are made from the ground-breaking RDNA 2 architecture that is part of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

In particular, it’s AMD’s Radeon™ RX 6000S series, which aims to launch thin and light laptops that weigh less than 2 kg and are less than 20mm thick. Laptops with these GPUs can easily deliver framerates above 100fps. And it goes without saying that they support the latest DirectX 12 Ultimate and AMD FidelityFX™ technology-enabled games. Many smart technologies also make their way into these GPUs. Among them is AMD Smart Shift Max, which boosts CPU and GPU performance by changing the power requirement of each depending on demand. There’s also AMD Smart Access Memory technology, which allows the CPU unfettered access to GPU memory.

AMD Advantage™

Equipping laptops with AMD CPUs and AMD GPUs helps the company achieve its vision better and that’s why AMD Advantage™ laptops are truly advanced machines. Not only do they increase the overall performance of the laptop, they also offer better visuals thanks to their advanced displays. These premium displays have been chosen to enable high refresh rates and low latency, and they are also bright enough to allow for high contrast levels. AMD Advantage gaming laptops deliver optimized thermals to keep you cool and quiet no matter how long your sessions are. Finally, and this should come as no surprise, these laptops are especially designed to be lighter and thinner than other gaming laptops.

Thin and light AMD gaming laptops to buy

The market is already saturated with amazing thin and light gaming laptops with AMD Advantage™. Among them is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 (2022), which ships with a Ryzen 7 6800HS CPU and a Radeon RX 6700S GPU. This sleek machine tips the scales at just 1.6kg and is 19mm thick. Another excellent machine is the Lenovo Legion S7, which has a Ryzen 7 5800H at its heart and weighs just 1.9kgs. Moreover, it is also a very thin laptop with a thickness of 19 mm. There are plenty of thin and light AMD-powered gaming laptops that will soon hit India as well.

The bottom line

Thin and light gaming laptops seemed difficult to design a few years ago. However, leading-edge innovations from AMD have finally made them possible. And the best part of all is that this is achieved without compromising on any other department. The future looks bright only for gaming laptops.
