Over at CES 2022, AMD has showcased a whack ton of stuff that highlights the announcement of brand new CPUs and GPUs that will be coming out this year with much more improved performance. Let’s roll through them.

Ryzen 6000 Series Mobile Processors

CES 2022 AMD 3

AMD starts off the year with its focus being on the mobile CPU side by revealing the new Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors built on the “Zen 3+” core architecture at 6nm which includes the RDNA 2 GPU that includes the likes of powerful H-series for the gaming and creator products and efficient U-series for the thin and light. With improved architecture comes improved power management where AMD claimed 24 hours of movie playback off a full charge and processing speed as these new chips are 1.3x faster in general processing and 2.1x faster in graphics loads compared to the older 5000 series, specifically 11% more in single-thread and 28% in multi-thread. To accommodate modern demands, the Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors are packed to support the latest techs including DDR5 RAM, PCIe 4.0, USB 4, AI noise cancellation, Wi-Fi 6E wireless connectivity, and full Window 11 support with Microsoft Pluton security processor.

The new Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors also come in the form of the PRO variant, which is the same chips but armed with additional feature sets tailored towards business use thanks to additional security measures, enterprise-grade manageability, and reliability.

The spec sheet for the Ryzen 6000 series mobile processor is down below.

Partner products from brands such as ASUS, Dell, and HP will be pushing out their own laptops running one of these chips starting February.

Ryzen 5800X3D Desktop Processor

CES 2022 AMD 2

Despite the desktop sector not getting a new generation, the Ryzen 5000 series desktop processors did get a new member in the lineup by the name of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the first product by Team Red with the exclusive AMD 3D V-Cache technology that offers 5% more performance in 1080p gaming. Although applied within a seemingly dated architecture, the AMD 3D V-Cache technology should bring more to the table in the future.

CEO Dr. Lisa Su also previewed the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series CPUs running the 5nm “Zen 4” architecture together with the brand new AM5 socket which will be coming out during 2H of this year. More news as the year passes on.

Radeon RX 6000M series + RX 6000S series mobile GPU

CES 2022 AMD 4

Moving onto the GPU side, the laptop scene is going to get the new Radeon RX 6000M and RX 6000S series silicon that is capable of providing high-performance gaming and graphical processing on the go with the best in class RX 6850M XT delivering a smooth experience even under 1440p resolution which equals to around 7% more frames than the previous RX 6800M. On the other hand, the RX 6000S is made for thin and light laptops that want efficiency and adequate performance but with utmost priority on form factor. As such, the chip is reportedly delivering more than 100FPS in selected games under 1080p resolution.

The official specification list has been updated with the models and here they are.

Radeon RX 6500 XT + RX 6400 desktop GPU

AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT

Being a long-time supporter of 1080p gaming, of course, AMD revealed the Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 desktop GPUs to take control of the mainstream and entry-level gaming market. Featuring the renowned RDNA 2 architecture at 6nm, the duo is just aiming for delivering decent 1080p performance at the lowest price possible. Confirmed partners for the Radeon RX 6500 XT include ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, GIGABYTE, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE, XFX, and Yeston.

Softwares

AMD has announced the enhancement of its FidelityFX Super Resolution that will be coming out through the next update for the Software: Adrenalin Edition driver update with additional feature sets crammed in which include updates to AMD Link game streaming service and AMD Privacy View that tracks user presence. Other than that, the AMD Advantage Framework and AMD Smart Technologies have been optimized to support all these newly announced laptop-specific hardware which are AMD Smart Access Memory, AMD SmartShift MAX, and AMD SmartShift Eco.

Looks like AMD is going full ham for the mobile market first and plan to go big (Or go home?) in the second half of 2022 with AM5 and Ryzen 7000s.
