AMD Ryzen 7 3700U Mid-Range Laptop CPU

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700U is a mid-range laptop processor commonly found in the mainstream laptop PCs. It is a good solution for the daily home and office tasks. The chip can effortlessly handle these tasks and additionally provide some decent potential for heavier duties like video editing. But, it is not a full-blown workstation-class processor specifically designed for heavy tasks. On the positive side, the 15-Watt Ryzen 7 3700U doesn’t require as much power as typical high-performance workstation & gaming processors that consume 45 Watts and it runs cooler.

The four main computing cores of the AMD Ryzen 7 3700U perform similar to cores of the cheaper Ryzen 5 3500U. However, the Ryzen 7 3700U has the Radeon Vega 10 integrated graphics instead of slower Vega 8 of the Ryzen 5. That means smoother gaming on the Ryzen 7. But, the Vega 10 is still a low-end graphics processor capable of running light games and select heavier titles on low graphics detail settings. Regarding the competing Intel processors, the Ryzen 7 3700U performs similar to the 8th Generation Intel Core i3 and i5 U-series processors.

      This computer is really good for virtulization as I have used Windows 10 as a vm and it has good to decent peformance and it would definitely handle your needs greatly. One thing I would say is that the laptop gets kinda hot under virtulization use but not that hot. So yes, I would recommend this cpu for virtulization.

      Yes but if it’s using integrated graphics then I would recommend to keep the settings at 720p low with v sync if needed for a good gameplay.

    Bob Richman

    Would the HP 9JA90AV_1 w/AMD Ryzen 7 3700u with 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD storage be good for hobby music production?

    • no

      If you’re talking about hobby music production as in Ableton or FL Studio, then yes, probably. Those two programs are not overly difficult to run

      I can confirm that. I had no problems with music production, including heavier vsts like Roland synths, on comparable Intel-based configurations. Even on laptops with similar but slower 2015 / 2016 generation processors and 8GB RAM everything worked good. The only caveat is that in Windows power saving modes while running on battery only, there were hiccups in heavy vsts, but when on the AC power and / or in Windows High Performance mode, everything was smooth..
