AMD announced a slew of new processors for laptops during its CES 2022 presentation (hours before unveiling the 12th generation Intel Mobile Chip). The company is big on mobile processing, offering a total of 12 new SKUs for consumers to choose from when buying AMD-powered laptops. In addition to using the latest Zen 3+ architecture and RDNA 2 graphics (with new 6000M series mobile GPUs) to launch the 6000 series of CPUs, AMD is also revamping some 5000 series chips.
The new processor and graphics technology should result in better gaming performance (double the graphics performance of previous-generation Ryzen CPUs) and longer battery life, according to AMD. The new series is designed using TSMC’s 6nm transistor manufacturing process. It has allowed AMD to push the limits of its mobile processors, increasing clock speeds to 5.0GHz.
The maximum number of cores and threads that you can find with the new 6000 series is 8 and 16, providing remarkable performance for the most demanding tasks and games. Then there’s the inclusion of DDR5 RAM support, PCIe 4.0 and USB 4.0 support, AI noise cancellation to filter background noise in calls, and Wi-Fi 6E.
Take a look at the table below for the full list of processors that AMD announced at CES 2022, including the 6000 series and refurbished 5000 chips.
In addition to the new mobile processors described above, AMD has announced 6000 PRO CPUs for businesses and professionals with the same Zen 3+ architecture and 6nm process. You can expect to see the best Windows laptops with the new AMD 6000 series processors as early as February.
