AMD offers an in-depth look at the Ryzen 6000 series mobile processor


Following his official announcement at CES 2022AMD has now offered an in-depth look at its upcoming Ryzen 6000 series mobile processor. This year, the company plans to dominate the laptop market with thinner, lighter, and more power-efficient designs.

Gaming performance

Integrated GPUs aren’t powerful or ideal for 1080p gaming – borrowing video memory when there’s no discrete graphics card. However, the new Radeon 600M integrated graphics card allows 1080p gaming in most AAA titles, although there are low to medium graphics levels. AMD claims that their 680M graphics in the Ryzen 7 6800U are about 2x faster than Intel’s Iris Xe. Benchmarks held against a GeForce MX 450 show an average of 48 fps on demanding titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and reach an all-time high of 132 fps on CS:GO.

AMD’s Zen3+ architecture and RDNA 2 already enable power efficiency while maintaining low latency. But, with FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution) and RSR (Radeon Super Resolution) enabled, the 680M processor manages to exceed the frame rates achievable by gaming laptops with discrete GPUs – albeit with low image quality. .

Most beginner gamers are more concerned with being able to run a game smoothly, rather than worrying about the quality of the graphics. So, these processors are ideal for them.

As for the Ryzen 5 6600U with Radeon 660M graphics, benchmarks show better overall performance than Intel’s Core i5-1135G7. Compared to a GeForce MX 450, these new discrete GPUs are able to match frame rates to some extent, falling below 4-5 fps on demanding titles like Battlefield 5. With FSR and RSR enabled, the numbers become even higher.

Gamers can expect super-fast clock speeds of up to 5 GHz and PCIe 4.0 bandwidth for faster load times. The processors have already been arranged on some of the best laptops shown at CES 2022including the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14, Razer Blade 14, Zephyrus Duo, and Alienware M17 R5 to name a few.

Application performance

New Zen 3+ cores promote high performance while minimizing battery usage, delivering up to 24 hours of battery life in normal use. It is the first chip to fully support Windows 11 security and is capable of multi-display compensation for content creators and streamers. As you would expect from a 2022 laptop, the processor supports USB 4.0, DDR5 RAM, PCIe 4.0 and Wi-Fi 6E. DisplayPort 2 support is also included, allowing you to connect an additional display with high refresh rates.

The market favors longer battery life and thinner form factors. As evidenced by the benchmark test above, the Ryzen 9 6900HS performs 2.62 times better than the 12th Gen Core i9. Not to mention, it only requires 35W of sustained CPU power limit to hit those numbers, while running 8 cores under full load. For comparison, the Core i9-12900HK is a hexacore processor.

At 15W of power, the Ryzen 6000 series is capable of 40% higher base clocks, with 1.17x better CPU compute, 1.81x better graphics, and up to 3 hours of battery life. generational battery life increase. Web browsing and other productivity tasks are faster, as you’d expect. But 3D GPU rendering easily takes the cake, delivering 3.05 times the performance over the last-gen Ryzen 7 5800U processor.

In March, AMD plans to announce its HX series of gaming laptops and the U-series processors for ultra-thin laptops. Between then and April, we could also expect to see a range of Pro machines, aimed at trade and business enthusiasts.
