AMD announces Ryzen 6000 mobile processors with RDNA2 graphics, DDR5, PCIe 4.0, USB4 and Wi-Fi 6E

“AMD is at the forefront of innovation in the PC industry, delivering unparalleled experiences for manufacturers, professionals and gamers,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client Business Unit, AMD. “The new AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors deliver remarkable efficiency for impressive battery life, unmatched integrated graphics and optimised performance to deliver the best AMD has to offer for every type of notebook user.”

AMD today announced Ryzen 6000 series processors and Radeon 6000S series graphics cards for laptops, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor and Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card at CES 2022. With multiple CPU and GPU announcements for both the mobile client and desktop segments, this is probably one of AMD’s biggest announcements in recent years.

AMD Ryzen 6000 Mobile Processors with RDNA2 Integrated Graphics

The AMD Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors will be based on the updated AMD Zen 3+ core design and are claimed to reach clock speeds of up to 5GHz, which is a 1.3x increase in processing speed compared to the older Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. Integrated graphics also benefit from the higher clock speeds, resulting in up to 2.1x better gaming performance.

The Zen 3+ cores provide additional performance and efficiency gains, enabling OEMs to create laptops that can run for up to 24 hours on a single charge. The top-of-the-line Ryzen 6000 mobile processor features 8 cores (16 threads) and delivers an 11 per cent increase in single-threaded performance and a 28 per cent increase in multithreaded performance.

The integrated graphics in the new AMD Ryzen 6000 mobile processors are based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture, which also powers the current generation AMD Radeon 6000 series desktop graphics cards, so we see the latest CPU microarchitecture and the latest GPU microarchitecture in one package. Usually, the GPU architecture is a generation or two behind.

DDR5, PCIe 4.0, USB 4 and Wi-Fi 6E on mobile

It seems that AMD wants to leave no stone unturned to beef up the platform for the new Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors. Intel is expected to announce major upgrades to its mobile processor platform at CES 2022. So it looks like AMD is taking a leap of faith and doing everything it can to support the Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors.

This includes the DDR5 memory standard, which was first seen on the Intel Alderlake desktop platform. PCIe Gen 4.0 and USB4 support are also planned for mobile devices, AMD’s Zen cores have always benefited from faster PCIe technology and faster RAM, as their Infinity Fabric Interconnect technology is based on PCIe. So the Ryzen 6000 processors should get a huge boost from the addition of these technologies. Also, laptops’ choice of ports and supported peripherals will increase as OEMs can play with much more bandwidth.

Adding to this is support for Wi-Fi 6E network adapters, bringing AMD up to speed on the latest Wi-Fi standard that taps into the new 6 GHz wireless band, Unfortunately, there are no Wi-Fi 6E routers in India at the moment, so this may not include it in Indian SKUs, but ultimately it’s up to the OEMs.
