AMD Processors / AMD CPUs

AMD is a global leader in PC processors and high-performance computing products—and the proof is found throughout the Lenovo line-up. Speedy gaming rigs. High-end workstations. Business systems with security features. Ultra-fast student and family laptops. AMD processors power the PCs people use every day.

Each year, Lenovo builds and ships thousands of laptops and desktops powered by AMD. Buyers demand AMD CPUs because they offer some of today's highest core and thread counts, fastest clock speeds, and features such as Precision Boost Overdrive1, memory overclocking2 and more.

AMD processors help keep many modern commercial passenger jets in the air, and power a huge number of the servers that sustain today's growing internet. AMD technology may even be part of your favorite gaming experiences. AMD CPUs are used in some of the world's best-selling game consoles.

It's simple. If you still think of AMD as "the other processor company," think again. For many computer shoppers, AMD CPUs are the preferred option – combining the latest processor technology and features in a wide range of home, business, and gaming systems.

1 Precision Boost Overdrive is enabled by the OEM in select configurations and requires an AMD Ryzen Threadripper or a Ryzen 3000/4000/5000 series processor, and a compatible motherboard. AMD Ryzen 3400G and 3200G series processors are not compatible. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of AMD’s published specifications, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. (GD-179)

2 Overclocking and/or Undervolting AMD processors and memory, including without limitation, altering clock frequencies / multipliers or memory timing / voltage, to operate outside of AMD’s published specifications will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even when enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking and/or undervolting AMD processors, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption, or vulnerability. (GD-106)

3 As of December 2020, the Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors are the “most advanced mobile processors,” defined as the highest-performing single-thread and multi-thread performance available on x86 mobile processors enabled by superior 7nm manufacturing technology on a small node. (CZM-26)

4 Based on AMD internal analysis, January 2021, comparing the Ryzen 9 5900HS, Ryzen 7 5800U, and Ryzen 7 5700U mobile processor with 11th gen Intel Core i7 processors at 35W and below, which offer four (4) cores. (CZM-27)

5 ‘Best Mobile Processors’ is defined as having the highest multi-thread processing performance in each of four (4) classes of Ryzen 5000 series processors. Testing by AMD engineering using the Cinebench R20 nT benchmark, measuring multithreaded performance of a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor engineering sample vs Core i9-10980HK, Ryzen 7 5800U processor engineering sample vs Core i7-1185G7 processor, the Ryzen 5 5600U processor engineering sample vs Core i5-1135G7 processor, and a Ryzen 3 5400U processor engineering sample vs Core i3-1115G4 processor. Performance may vary. (CZM-1)
