AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX Review ft. Asus ROG Strix Scar 17

Rating: 8.5.

AMD announced their 7045 HX Series of Mobile Processors at CES 2023 and the specification sounded almost too good to be true. The top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 7945HX promised 16 cores, 32 threads, heaps of cache and up to 5.4GHz Boost speed. That sounds like a regular Ryzen 9 7950X with a TDP of a mere 55W which is surely impossible and something we have to see for ourselves.

AMD gives details about their new Zen 4 Dragon Range CPUs and we can see they are impressive, packing the technology of a Zen 4 chiplet CPU in a laptop with the promise of high performance and low power draw. We are used to the idea of compromise so you will understand that an offer of a win-win will take a while to sink in.
