AMD Ryzen 6000 mobile processors deliver 'generational uplift'


Processor specialist AMD's new Ryzen 6000 Series laptop processors combine the Zen 3+ core architecture with RDNA 2 architecture on-chip graphics.

Built using 6nm process technology, they deliver "unprecedented" built-in graphics performance, while providing "superb" battery life, the company claimed.

The Ryzen 6000 Series processors are the fastest Ryzen processors so far, with clock speeds up to 5GHz, up to 1.3 times faster processing speeds, and up to 2.1 times faster graphics than the 5000 Series (in internal testing).

The Zen 3+ core includes new adaptive power management features that adjust speed quickly, and new deep sleep states to help conserve power. Up to 24 hours of movie playback can be achieved on a single charge, and compared with Ryzen 5000 processors new chips can use up to 30% less power for video conferencing.

Specifications include up to eight high-performance cores (16 threads), delivering up to 11% more single-threaded performance and up to 28% faster multithreaded performance vs the 5000 series.

The Ryzen 6000 Series processors are the first mobile processors featuring RDNA 2 based built-in graphics, said to be fast enough to smoothly play the vast majority of PC games in full HD. There's also an all-new integrated display engine for "ultra-high resolutions and refresh rates", with support for dynamic HDR displays and AMD FreeSync technology.

Other features include support for DDR5 memory, PCIe 4.0 and USB 4; AI noise cancellation to filter background noise; Wi-Fi 6E support from Qualcomm and MediaTek; and an integrated Microsoft Pluton processor to fully support advanced Windows 11 security features.

"It's clear that remote work is here to stay, making reliable security – from any device all over the world – more critical than ever before," said Microsoft director of enterprise and OS security David Weston.

"After deep collaboration with AMD, we're proud to have integrated the Microsoft Pluton security processor on AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors, bringing enhanced security to the core of new Windows 11 PCs."

The Ryzen 6000 Series ranges from the six-core, 4.5GHz 6600U to the eight-core 5GHz 6980HX.

AMD also announced the Ryzen 7 5800X3D desktop processor for "elite-level gaming performance", previewed the forthcoming Ryzen 7000 Series CPU based on the Zen 4 architecture and using the new AMD Socket AM5, and revealed new members of the Ryzen 5000 Mobile Series processors featuring Zen 3 architecture.

"AMD is at the forefront of innovation in the PC industry, delivering unmatched experiences for creators, professionals and gamers," said AMD client business unit senior vice president and general manager Saeid Moshkelani.

"The new AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors bring remarkable efficiency for impressive battery life, unbeatable built-in graphics and optimised performance to deliver the best AMD has to offer to every type of notebook user."

The Ryzen 6000 Series will shortly be followed by the Ryzen 6000 Pro Series, also built on the AMD "Zen 3+" architecture and 6nm process but with the additional security features, manageability tools, and enterprise-grade stability and reliability.

The Ryzen 6000 Pro will feature in the Lenovo ThinkPad Z ultra-premium business notebook..

"Our partnership with AMD strengthens our PC portfolio across segments and helps us to continually deliver more choices of cutting-edge innovations to our customers," said Lenovo intelligent devices group president Luca Rossi.

"With the increased need for high-quality responsiveness on the go and powerful entertainment experiences while at home, Lenovo is working to further our mission of providing smarter technology for all."
