When it comes to computers, the default processor that the majority of computer makers tend to choose to use is Intel, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with Honor where during IFA 2020, they have taken the wraps off several new laptops – the MagicBook 14, MagicBook 15 and the MagicBook Pro, both of which are powered by AMD’s Ryzen 5 processors.
While AMD has been lagging behind Intel in the past, the company’s newer Ryzen processors have been gaining popularity over the past couple of years, namely due to its price to performance ratio, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that Honor would choose to use their processors over that of Intel.
The MagicBook 14 and 15 will feature 14-inch and 15.6-inch displays respectively with a resolution of 1920×1080 and will be powered by AMD’s Ryzen 5 4500U processor and will come with 8/16GB of RAM as well as PCIe NVMe SSD storage options of 256GB or 512GB.
The laptop will also feature a fingerprint scanner built into the power button, a popup webcam for those who might be privacy minded, and will also feature the use of an AMD GPU that should make it more viable for gamers who want to play games on the go.
As for the MagicBook Pro, this is a slightly more souped up version of the MagicBook 14/15 with a 16.1-inch 1920×1080 display and the use of the AMD Ryzen 5 4500H processor, 16GB of dual channel DDR4 RAM, 512G of PCIe NVMe SSD storage, and boasts a cooling system that uses dual fans and dual heat pipes.
