The chip is constructed for gaming and content creation, the processors will be available in major PC brands such as ASUS, Acer, HP and Lenovo. Riding on the relatively new AMD Zen 3 architecture from the desktop processors, it features up to 8 cores and 16 threads and AMD is plunging it to two segments - the HX series and HS series.
