AMD’s Ryzen 6000 laptop chips finally modernize their built-in Radeon GPUs

AMD announced several updates for its desktop processors and laptops. But perhaps most notably were two new chipsets — one designed specifically for gaming desktops and another aimed at notebooks. Most importantly, these chips use a new Zen3+ CPU architecture and manufacturing processes, which means they’re faster than previous generations. They also feature an improved GPU design called “Radeon RX 5700,” which trades out the old Vega architecture for the newer RDNA 2 architecture found in current generation gaming hardware like the PS5 and XBox Series X (XS). According to AMD, its next generation Ryzen 3000 series processors will start shipping by early 2020, but most laptops won’t be available until later in 2022.

All three series (H-, HS-, and H-) of Ryzen CPUs are 35W and 45W processors designed for gaming laptops and workstation PCs. They feature higher core counts and faster clock-speeds compared to their predecessors, the X-series parts. With its base clock speed of 3 GHz and boost frequency up to 4.2 GHz (4.5 GHz for the 8700K), the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U has a maximum turbo frequency of 4.2 GHz. All of the Ryzen CPUs come equipped with AMD’s new Vega graphics architecture, which includes up to 16 compute units (CU) for high performance computing tasks like rendering 3D games, video editing, and cryptocurrency mining.

The Zen 3+ CPUs use an even smaller 5nm manufacturing process instead of the previous 7nm one used by earlier models. PCIe 4.0 support could be an important factor when choosing between fast solid state drives (SSDs) like Samsung 960 Pro M.2 NVMe SSDs. In addition to supporting DDR5 RAM across the entire lineup, Intel has added some pretty cool features to its latest processors like Optane Memory Support, PCIe 4.0 Support, and USB 3.2 Gen 2 Support.

The integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU supports hardware-accelerated Ray Tracing (RT) and Direct X12 Ultimate (DX12U), just like its discrete counterparts. According to AMD, its new Ryzen 3000 series processors offer up to twice the performance of their predecessors, allowing them to play most modern PC games at high settings without stuttering or tearing. It’s true that the Radeon 600 branding is an inheritance from a previous generation of laptops (2019), but it doesn’t say anything about whether they’re going after the mid-range market segment or if they want to be competing against integrated graphics chipsets like Intel UHD Graphics 630.

Microsoft has finally added its own version of AMD’s Zen microarchitecture into its processors for laptops and desktops running Windows 10 and Windows 11. Pluton is designed for system administrators who want to ensure their systems receive timely software patches without having to manually install them. Plutonia OS includes an emulated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for use by applications running under Linux. It allows them to access the platform’s security features without requiring any special permissions from the operating system. It removes an attack surface that could potentially allow someone who has physical access to your computer to exploit vulnerabilities within your system.

AMD is also providing some less-exciting iterative improvements to its Ryzen 5000-series laptop APU lineup. The Ryzen 3 5425U, Ryzen 5 5625U, and Ryzen 7 5825U add 100 MHz to the peak boost clock speeds and add a bit of extra L3 cache to the Ryzen 5400U, 5600U, and 5800U, respectively. They all still use the original Zen 3 CPU architecture and Vega GPU architecture.

Should I Buy a Ryzen 5000 Series Zen 3 CPU?

AnandTechZen 3 CPUs have been out for over two years now, so we’ve seen plenty of reviews and benchmarks on these chips. We’ve already reviewed the Ryzen 9 3950X and found it to be a great choice for content creators thanks to its excellent multi-threaded performance. Now, let’s take a look at what you get in the $500 range.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is a good option for those looking for a budget gaming rig with decent performance. While this isn’t as powerful as our top pick, it offers better value for money than the Core i5-8400. If you can afford it though, we’d recommend spending a little more and getting the faster 8700K.

The Ryzen 5 3580Y is a quad-core processor based on the same Zen core design as the Ryzen 5 3600,
