AMD Launches Ryzen 6000 CPUs For Laptops

AMD used CES 2022 to mark the launch of the Ryzen 6000 CPUs for laptops across three major segments: thin and light, gaming and content creation, and commercial.

The Ryzen 6000 mobile CPUs are based on TSMC’s 6-nanometer manufacturing process, and they mostly use AMD’s new Zen 3+ architecture, which provides performance and efficiency gains over the Zen 3 architecture that was introduced in 2020. The “high-performance, ultra-efficient” architecture sports 50 new and enhanced power management features and an adaptive power management framework, which allows the new chips to support up to 24 hours of battery life for video playback, AMD said. AMD expects the new Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, combined with previous-generation Ryzen 5000 chips, to power more than 200 premium laptops this year, with availability starting in February.

Most of the new processors come with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture to deliver major leaps in gaming performance. They will support DDR5 memory as well as PCIe 4.0 and USB4 connectivity. They’re also the first x86 processors to “fully support advanced Windows 11 security features” with Microsoft’s Pluton security processor that is integrated on the chip’s die.

The U-series for ultrathin laptops is headlined by the Ryzen 7 6800U, which comes with eight cores, 16 threads, a maximum boost of 4.7GHz, a base frequency of 2.7GHz, a combined L2 and L3 cache of 20 MB, 12 GPU cores, a maximum graphics frequency of 2.2GHz and a TDP range of 15 to 28 watts.

The H-series is headlined by the Ryzen 9 6980HX, which comes with eight cores, 16 threads, a maximum boost frequency of 5GHz, a base frequency of 3.3GHz, a combined L2 and L3 cache of 20 MB, 12 GPU cores, a maximum graphics frequency of 2.4GHz and a thermal design power of 45 or more watts.

With the Ryzen 9 6980HX hitting 5GHz for gaming laptops, the new processors feature AMD’s “fastest clock frequencies” yet, according to David McAfee, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s client business unit.
