It’s not easy navigating the huge choice of laptops out there, especially if you’re unfamiliar with processors and what they do. Some are built for streaming movies and others are built for handling big work projects – it’s all about finding the right one for you.

Here, we’ll take you through AMD’s three main processor types: AMD Ryzen™ 3, Ryzen™ 5 and Ryzen™ 7 processors, and how they can make your HP Pavilion laptop work to your advantage.

If reliability is the first thing you look for in a laptop, the AMD Ryzen™ 3 CPU is a great option. Designed for stable performance, even with multiple programs running, you’ll be able to complete your work in a fraction of the time thanks to fast loading and impressive responsiveness.

But that’s not all. AMD processors like the Ryzen™ 3 3300U feature SenseMi technology, clever AI that diverts processing power to the applications that need it the most. It builds up an idea of how you work and the commands you’re likely to make next, to make each action faster every time you do it.

Plus, the latest Ryzen™ processors aren’t just processors – they’re graphics cards too. That means whether you’re unwinding with a movie or editing photos from your holiday, you’ve got the power to get perfect images with all your other programs still running.
