AMD outs Ryzen 6000 series CPUs, up to 5GHz, RDNA 2 architecture
AMD has announced the full lineup of new AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors for laptops, bringing the new “Zen 3+” core architecture together with AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based on-chip graphics.
The AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are built using TSMC’s 6nm process technology. According to AMD, these processors deliver unprecedented levels of built-in graphics performance, offering revolutionary 1080p AAA gaming, along with enhanced features and battery life.
The company also mentioned that these are the fastest AMD Ryzen processors yet, with up to 5 GHz clock speeds, up to 1.3 times faster processing speeds, and up to 2.1 times faster graphics than the 5000 Series. In addition, compared to last-generation AMD Ryzen processors, the Ryzen 6000 Series processors can use up to 30% less power for video conferencing.
They feature up to eight high-performance cores, each one capable of handling multiple tasks at the same time to deliver 16 threads of processing power, with up to 11% more single-threaded performance and up to 28% faster-multithreaded performance over the previous generation, AMD claims.
Moreover, the AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are also the first mobile processors to feature RDNA 2 architecture-based built-in graphics. In addition, the Ryzen 6000 Series processors have an all-new integrated display engine, allowing for ultra-high resolutions and refresh rates. They enable up to 70% faster AAA gaming compared to the competition. Other features include support for Dynamic HDR displays and AMD FreeSync technology.
Check out the new technologies and features below.
• Advanced DDR5 memory for faster mobile computing
• Upgraded peripherals support with PCIe 4.0 and USB4
• AI noise cancellation to filter background noise.
• Wi-Fi 6E solutions from relationships with Qualcomm and MediaTek
Furthermore, these processors are the first x86 processors to fully support advanced Windows 11 security features with the integrated Microsoft Pluton security processor. They also sport other security features from AMD, such as AMD Secure Processor and AMD Memory Guard.
The first laptops powered by AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are expected to be available by leading OEM partners, such as ASUS, Dell, and HP, beginning in February 2022.
