Pure Zenbook perfection is coming soon with Ryzen 7 4700U blazing fast ultra low-powered 8 core 16 thread APU. As per leaks of last year about Ryzen 4000 mobile Renoir APUs’ memory specs were accurate from Komachi_Ensaka’s information. This time around, another twitter enthusiast _rogame has detected precise specs of upcoming ASUS Zenbook 14 UX434IQ ultrabook packed with Ryzen 7 4700U, plus 16GB LPDDR4X 4266MHz memory and entry level Nvidia MX350 GPU.
Additionally, 1TB fast Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD is also included with laptop. Obvious part of Intel not doing correct decision is staying with 14nm+++ outdated fabrication for a long time. Moreover, Ryzen 7 4700U is the last cheapest 8 core 8 thread option from Renoir family based on 7nm process technology. A whopping 15W TDP is the official limit for AMD APU. On the other hand, Nvidia MX350 provides extra graphics assistance during Vega 7 iGPU automatically switches heavy graphics process to discrete GPU. GeForce MX350 has an old encoder from 2016’s Pascal Architecture and not latest Turing one. Theoretically, MX350 performs similar to GTX 1050 2GB mobile GPU. It really helps a lot when it comes to rendering acceleration and lite gaming purposes.
This Ryzen based Zenbook 14 UX434IQ will simply destroy any competition with Intel Tiger Lake or Ice Lake low TDP processors. Because at stock 15W settings there is no serious Intel contender to defeat Ryzen 4700U in terms of price, temps and performance. Every 10nm ultra low powered Intel chips are built on 4 cores 8 threads design. Gaming and productivity crown will go to AMD again for being fast, efficient and affordable choice.
