Xiaomi announced that one of the variants of RedmiBook 14 will be powered by AMD Ryzen 3000 which is based on an APU of the Picasso type. On 21st October Xiaomi is expected to introduce RedmiBook 14 with AMD Ryzen 5 3550U in addition to the already known configurations with Intel’s 10th generation Core processors.
Xiaomi mentioned: “This time, we declare war on all unreasonable premiums, and once again put the ultimate price-performance ratio to the end!”
There are rumors that the RedmiBook 14 will be equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 3550U which can fall back on four cores including SMT and it has a frequency clocking of up to 3.7 GHz with a configurable TDP of 12 to 35 watts.
The normal version of the AMD R5 3500U is limited by the maximum power consumption limit. When the notebook is fully loaded, there will be CPU and GPU down-clocking. However, the full-blood version does not have this limitation, and the CPU and GPU performance can be maximized at the same time.
Interestingly, the AMD version of the RedmiBook 14 will be cheaper than the Intel configurations. All the devices are going to be powered by an 8 GB RAM and the devices are going to weigh only 1.5 kilograms. The devices will come with a 14 inches FHD display.
Currently, there are 3 variants in terms of storage and processor combination. The 256 GB internal storage + i5-10210U: variant is priced at 3999 Yuan (approximately 505 Euro), the 512 GB + i5-10210U variant is priced at 4499 Yuan (approximately 570 Euro) and the 512 GB + i7-10510U variant is priced at 4999 Yuan (approximately 630 Euro). The Core i5 8265U has a frequency clocking of 1.6 GHz base and 3.9 GHz at peak while the Core i7 8565U has a frequency clocking of 1.8 GHz base and 4.8 GHz at peak.
