During a keynote address, Su unveiled the Ryzen AI 300 bid for next-generation AI laptops. The enactment could vie straight with Intel's upcoming Lunar Lake and Qualcomm's Snapdragon X. And successful concern with Microsoft, these chips volition powerfulness laptops equipped with the tech giant's AI chatbot Copilot.

Su besides revealed the caller Ryzen 9000 bid for desktops, calling them "the world's fastest user PC processors" for gaming and contented creation.

Both lines are expected to motorboat successful July. This comes little than 2 months aft AMD's April announcement of caller processors that tin tally AI workloads – the Ryzen Pro 8040 for laptops and the Ryzen Pro 8000 for desktops.
