Ryzen mobile processors from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) are now on Vaio laptops, its strategic partner for Asia has announced, enabling the former to advance its footprint in the laptop PC market.

Hong Kong-based Nexstgo says that the debut of AMD Ryzen chips on Vaio laptops will help provide "work and play support for energetic consumers".

The Ryzen line-up has been responsible for AMD's rise, allowing it to rival market giant Intel for dominance in the PC processor segment.

Vaio was originally the PC business arm of Japanese giant Sony, having enjoyed success during that period, but was sold off in 2014 so the latter could focus on other areas, particularly on the mobile segment.

The Vaio E15 uses the Ryzen 5 3500U and Ryzen 7 3700U mobile processors, promising "uncompromised" performance, with an ergonomic form factor and lightweight design. The 15.6-inch device claims to deliver sustained all-day battery.

Graphics chips are also provided by AMD, with either the Radeon Vega 8 or Radeon RX Vega 10 available. The devices come with an internal storage of 512GB and 8GB RAM.

The E15 series starts at Dh2,899 in the UAE.
