At the CES AMD introduced new AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors for laptops built on Zen 3+ core and all-new AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based on-chip graphics. These use TSMC’s 6nm process technology that promises 1080p AAA gaming, cutting-edge features and long battery life.
The Ryzen 6000 Series offer up-to 5 GHz clock speeds, up to 1.3 times faster processing speeds, and up to 2.1 times faster graphics compared to 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 promises incredible battery life of up to 24 hours of movie playback on a single charge in a cool, quiet laptop.
These feature 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 promise up to 11% more single-threaded performance and up to 28% faster multithreaded performance over the previous generation.
AMD said that the Ryzen 6000 U-Series processors will offer the perfect blend of performance and efficiency. The company is also introducing AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile Series processors, improving performance with the incorporation of “Zen 3” processor technology in 2022.
