Yesterday after a quick tease of the pending release of these Chips. Today AMD announced its Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” mobile processors at CES 2022. The Ryzen 6000 series will go head to head with Intel’s Alder Lake mobile processors and Apple’s competitive M1-based systems. The new Rembrandt series is offering Zen 3+ CPU architecture and RDNA 2 integrated graphics which are fabbed on TSMC’s 6nm node.
This gives the 6000 series 1.3X faster processing and 2X faster graphics compared to the 5000 series. It is also worth noting that this will be their first mobile processor to support ray tracing on integrated graphics. There will also be support for PCIe 4.0, LPDDR5, and DDR5, to improve connectivity compared to the 5000 series. The new chips are expected to arrive on the market sometime in February.
AMD Ryzen 6000 Series “Rembrandt” Mobile Processors
Listed above are all the models that will be released under the Ryzen 6000 series. The H-Series is aimed at gamers and creators, While the U series is aimed at the average mobile user. The H series is then broken down into two categories the HS and HX. The HX models are overclockable with a 45W TDP and are the fastest. The HS is a compact performance with 35 W.
At the top of the line, we have the 4 Ryzen 9 models each will have 8 CPU cores with 16 threads. There are 12 RDNA 2 CUs at 2.4 GHz. Which is a step up from the 5000 series with the Vega graphics. The Flagship Ryzen 9 6980HX has a 3.3 GHz CPU base, 5.0 GHz boost, and a 45W+ TDP. leading the pack for the 6000 series.
Next in Line is the Ryzen 7 series which has the same amount of cores as the Ryzen 9 (8 Cores 16 threads) but clocks a lower Peak GPU boost of 2.2 GHz. It isn’t until the Ryzen 5 Line that we see a lower core count of 6 and 12 threads respectfully. The Ryzen 5 has 4.5 GHz with six RDNA 2 CUs with a peak speed of 1.9 GHz.
The U series is pretty straightforward 3 of the models are still including the Vega graphics engine. Which significantly reduces the iGPU performance compared to the rest of the series.
As for Zen3+ AMD didn’t go into detail, all we really know is that is it an iterative update based on the name Zen3+. There also weren’t any updates on the cores from a microarchitecture standpoint. But the update in processing from 7nm to 6nm allows the company to cram in more features per square millimeter of silicon.
Ryzen 6000 Series RDNA 2 iGPU
The RDNA 2 iGPU is a need upgrade from the Vega series and is the first ray-tracing capable APU currently on the market. Rembrandt boosts more than four CU Than the 5000 series Vega. It is a 1.5X larger GPU compute engine, 1.5X more memory bandwidth, and 2X L2 Caches. The Graphic engine will be fed by LPDDR5/DDR5 and makes a step up to PCIe 4.0.
When will the AMD Ryzen 6000 series be released?
The Ryzen 6000 Series was officially announced at CES Keynote on January 4th, 2022. With 13 mobile CPUs in the pipeline. The first Expected release will be in February of 2022 but this is most likely going to be a slow-release throughout the year for all of the models.
