AMD also announced the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D desktop processor with AMD 3D V-Cache technology for ‘elite-level’ gaming performance and previewed the new Ryzen 7000 Series CPU powered by Zen 4 architecture which uses the new AMD Socket AM5.

Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client business unit at AMD said “The new AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors bring remarkable efficiency for impressive battery life, unbeatable built-in graphics and optimized performance to deliver the best AMD has to offer to every type of notebook user.”

AMD Ryzen 6000 Series Processors

AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are built on the updated AMD Zen 3+ core, optimized to deliver improved performance-per-watt. 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 then the 5000 Series.

The Zen 3+ core, “delivers power and efficiency, through new adaptive power management features that adjust speed quickly and new deep sleep states that help save on power.” Compared to last-generation AMD Ryzen processors, the AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors can, “Use up to 30% less power for video conferencing… and up to 24hours of movie playback on a single charge, all in a cool, quiet laptop.”

Featuring up to eight, high-performance cores (each one, “Capable of handling multiple tasks at the same time”) to deliver 16 threads of processing power, AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors, “Bring ultimate performance to ultrathin laptop PCs, with up to 11% more single-threaded performance and up to 28% faster multithreaded performance over the previous generation.”

AMD RDNA 2 Architecture-Based Graphics

AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are also the first mobile processors to feature RDNA 2 architecture-based, integrated graphics: “With a graphics performance up to twice as fast as the last gen, it’s the world’s first on-chip graphics that can smoothly play the vast majority of PC games in full HD.” Ryzen 6000 Series processors have an all-new integrated display engine, allowing for, “Ultra-high resolutions and refresh rates.” AMD Ryzen 6000 Series, “Enables up to 70% faster AAA gaming compared to the competition.” Dynamic HDR displays are supported and AMD FreeSync technology helps to keeps things smooth.

New Platform, New Features

To complement the power, efficiency and graphics, the AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors are built on a new platform and offer innovative features:

  • Advanced DDR5 memory for faster mobile computing.
  • Upgraded peripherals support with PCIe 4.0 and USB 4.
  • AI noise cancellation to filter background noise.
  • Wi-Fi 6E solutions from relationships with Qualcomm and MediaTek.

AMD says the Ryzen 6000 Series processors are the first x86 processors to fully support advanced Windows 11 security features with the integrated Microsoft Pluton security processor, “Offering a secure system, enabling true chip-to-cloud security.”

Product Specification: AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors 2022 Consumer Lineup

At the top of the product stack, the AMD Ryzen HX-Series processors provide optimal performance in a thin and lightweight form factor with significant graphics power. For mainstream consumers, “Looking for performance on-the-go,” the AMD Ryzen 6000 U-Series processors offer a blend of performance and efficiency. 

A reinvigorated line-up of AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile Series processors, improving performance with the incorporation of “Zen 3” processor technology, is also available for 2022.
