AMD won the gaming laptop category for the first time ever in 2020. Until the Asus Zephyrus G14, we’d never seen a laptop with an AMD CPU and AMD GPU run circles around the competition. We’ve seen since then that “AMD laptop” is no longer synonymous with “low-cost.” However, AMD is now aiming higher than mid-range gaming machines, revealing that it is working on a new CPU aimed at the “pinnacle of gaming performance,” with the “highest core, thread, and cache ever.”

According to AMD director of technical marketing Robert Hallock, the new CPU line is codenamed “Dragon Range,” and it will only be available at 55W TDP and higher — enough power to “largely exist in the space where gaming laptops are plugged in the majority of the time.”
