The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has been in launching spree this week. And now, they have updated their ultrabook lineup with newer generation RedmiBook 13, 14, and 16. And they are powered by the AMD Ryzen 4000 Renior series mobile processors.

What is new?

The new RedmiBook lineup comes in 13-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch models, as the name suggests. They all share the same design aesthetics with a metallic finish and have very minimal bezels of just 3.26mm, which gives the laptops a screen-to-body ratio of 90.6%. It sports an FHD display with 100% sRGB wide color gamut, which means the colors will be very accurate and vivid.

Now talking about the processors, Ryzen 4000 series is a potent chipset, and Xiaomi claims that it can boost the performance by up to 60% compared to its predecessors. These chips are built on a 7nm fabrication process and are based on the Zen 2 architecture, making it more power-efficient and faster. Buyers will be able to choose either of the budget-friendly Ryzen 5 4500U processor or more powerful Ryzen 7 4700U processor. Ryzen 7 is an 8 core + 8 thread chip, whereas Ryzen 5 features six core + 6 threads. Both have a TDP of 15W. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated graphics card in any variant. But AMD’s integrated RX Vega GPUs are powerful enough to support casual gaming.
