AMD recently held its highly anticipated keynote event at CES 2022, announcing the new Ryzen 6000 mobile processor. It is the first AMD mobile processor to use the new Zen3 + architecture and RDNA 2 Graphics and should deliver an enormous increase in performance and efficiency compared to the expiring 5000 CPU.
Here is everything you need to know.
This new processor is future-proof and compatible with the latest memory standards such as PCIe 4.0, DDR5 RAM and USB 4.0. Speed is everything when it comes to gaming and the Ryzen 6000 is capable of it WLAN 6E Speeds. The Ryzen 6000 is also compatible with HDMI 2.1 and is ready for DisplayPort 2.0 when it comes out.
With up to 5.0 GHz, the Ryzen 6000 is AMD’s fastest Ryzen processor. It’s 1.3 times faster than the old one 5000 series. The integrated RDNA 2 graphics architecture supports ray tracing and is supposed to double the performance of the processor of the last generation.
Gamers and content creators will also feel the benefits of the Ryzen 6000, as it doubles the performance of the 5000 series in certain areas.
AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture can be found in the current PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles and is one of the main features of the new Ryzen 6000 CPUs. This architecture makes the Ryzen 6000 the first APU with ray tracing and has a profound impact on gaming performance.
When benchmarking the Ryzen 6800U against the previous generation 5800U, AMD saw almost double the performance for games like Overwatch and CS: GO at 1080p resolution. While it’s not surprising given the age of these games, the 6800U made it with newer titles like. a similar feat Cyberpunk 2077 and Battlefield V (at low settings).
Buyers can expect better performance in more demanding games thanks to AMDs Fidelity FX Super Resolution (FSR) Software. The software scales the graphics in real time and increases the frame rates in certain games. FarCry 6 reached 59 FPS and call of Duty: Vanguard achieved 114 FPS at 1080p when AMD tested it on the 6800U with FSR enabled.
Battery life is the bane of laptop users, especially when gaming or streaming on the go. The new technology of the Ryzen 6000 and 6 nm design Address this problem and deliver up to 40% less power consumption when streaming video, 30% less power for video conferencing and around 15% less when surfing the Internet. AMD also claims that it can get up to 24 hours of battery life with the power management features enabled, but it still needs to be independently verified like the other statistics.
The Microsoft Pluton security processor will make its notebook debut on the Ryzen 6000 platform. Pluto is a new built-in security feature that protects user identities, encryption keys, and other personal information from falling into the wrong hands. It is hardware based and the chip will be integrated into new AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm CPUs with Microsoft operating systems.
13 Ryzen 6000 CPUs will be available at launch, divided into the H-series and U-series. The H series has eight models in its range and is intended for gamers and creative people. It starts with the entry-level Ryzen 5 6600HS with six cores and 12 threads and a 3.3 GHz base with 4.5 GHz boost. At the top is the Ryzen 9 6980HX with eight cores and 16 threads. At 3.3 GHz, the base is the same as the 6600HS, but the boost goes up to 5.0 GHz.
AMD’s U-Series is designed for thin laptops and only offers two Ryzen 6000 options. The Ryzen 5 6600U has six cores and 12 threads with a 2.7 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost speed. The more powerful brother Ryzen 7 6800U has eight cores and 16 threads with 2.9 GHz base clock and 4.7 GHz boost clock.
Ryzen 6000 CPUs are expected to ship in February 2022 and will be available from most major hardware providers. Some laptops with these new CPUs are the ROG Zephyrus G14, the Razer Blade 14, and the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro.
