Harnessing the Power of AI: AMD Ryzen AI 300 Series Revolutionizes Mobile Computing

AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su unveiled the groundbreaking tech in a historic reveal at Computex 2024, debuting the much anticipated Ryzen AI 300 series chips for the mobile market. Codenamed Strix Point, the upcoming AI chips represent an important leap forward, and will provide the fastest AI inference performance available for portable PCs once released. Built from AMD's impressive Zen 5 CPU architecture, RDNA 3.5 integrated graphics and a third generation XDNA2-based Neural Processing Unit (NPU), the Ryzen AI 300 series promises a new standard for mobile computing. Finally, let’s break down the details that make this launch so potentially monumental.

AMD Unveils the First Ryzen AI 300 Series SKUs

Just announced, AMD’s Ryzen AI 300 series comprises two SKUs so far: the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 and the Ryzen AI 9 365. These processors are adaptable from an ultrabook to a desktop replacement, evidencing the AMD’s drive for versatility and performance. Both SKUs adopt the Zen 5 CPU architecture and aim at a 16 per cent boost in Instructions Per Clock (IPC) over the Zen 4 predecessors. This with the most recent RDNA 3.5-based Radeon 890M integrated graphics. More focus on efficiency and AI features are the big drivers of the company today.

A Closer Look at AMD's AI Ambitions

And just calling it the Ryzen AI moniker also shows AMD’s dedication to AI performance. Alongside the new NPU, AMD has also tried to reset the branding a little to make it clearer that the AI hardware has been baked into silicon. With performance as a first priority, AMD’s new NPU iteration, the third-generation NPU, drives 50 TOPS – a massive jump from their earlier individual NPU efforts. This puts the AMD NPU at what AMD believes is a good spot for inferencing from AI endeavours.

AMD Shakes Up AI Performance with Third-Generation NPU

AMD’s latest Xilinx-based 3rd generation NPU is at the heart of its Ryzen AI 300 series, aimed at boosting AI inferencing and generative AI performance. It’s a quantum leap further from the ‘minor version’ updates that characterised smart-device SoCs up to now, when it comes to demanding aspiring to cumbersome AI-focused mobile computing applications that crave to develop complex functionality. AMD’s performance target of 50 TOPS (trillion operations per second) is the name put on the logic gate.

Innovating AI Processing with Block FP16

AMD Block-FP16: Dynamic innovation for AMD’s Zen 5-based Ryzen AI 300 series allows for Block-FP16 that represents a new type of innovation to extend the superior performance of an FP16 accuracy to an INT8 that is equivalent in performance.

Comparative Analysis: Standing Tall Amongst Giants

The Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 isn’t just a convincing contender. When pitted against rivals such as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite and Intel’s Meteor Lake-based Core Ultra 185H, its considerable lead comes more from productive and content creation workloads, where it sets a clear bar, and multithreaded performance. Of course, competitive analysis often involves picking optimal scenarios. But that AMD’s Ryzen AI 300 series is taking up the fight in mobile is unmissable.

Looking Ahead: The Future of Mobile Computing with AMD

Ryzen AI 300 Series The 300 series combines AI capabilities and efficient processing power, which make it perfect for mobile computing As we continue to grow the world around us with various AI applications and workloads, AMD is ready with its latest products to keep pace.


Microsoft remains a leading global brand in the tech industry, where it continues to spearhead the development of software and AI. Since its inauguration as a technology giant, Microsoft has demonstrated its commitment to AI by including it in most of their products and services, leveraging data to create better user experiences and personalised services. With the arrival of the AM Sony’s Ryzen AI 300 series, there is a chance that synergy across AM Sony and Microsoft’s software development could grow stronger than ever. Whether this partnership will lead to performance improvements for Windows OS, better integration to Microsoft’s AI tools and platforms or better user experiences across devices remains to be seen. One thing that is certain is that Microsoft will continue to evolve and increasingly achieve its goals through both its own creativity and through partnerships with other trailblazing hardware engineers, such as AMD, who are themselves at the forefront of innovation and the ecosystem of inventors.
