AMD doesn’t even play along in the world of notebooks! After all, Intel’s big rival in the world of processors seems to be preparing to launch a new APU that can do it all!
Yes, we’re talking about the takeover of the Zen 3+ architecture, which should also be the basis for a completely new product range in the desktop PC world, as well as the RDNA 2 graphics architecture! As if that weren’t enough, this new AMD Ryzen processor also supports the new generation of DDR5 RAM memory!
It’s a very interesting package! Which can even have a major impact on the world of notebooks.
AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX: Dominance in Laptops !?
The Ryzen 9 6900HX will apparently offer 8 Zen 3+ processor cores, each of which can offer 2 threads, for a total of 16 threads.
In addition, there is the new use of completely new architectures in the world of AMD APUs. We also already know that everything will be based on TSMC’s 6nm process. To round off the package, we have a maximum clock speed of 4.6 GHz and 20 MB L3 cache.
On the graphics side, however, this boy’s iGPU will actually be an adapted version of the Radeon 680M, which is of course based on the Navi2 GPU, now with 12 processing units.
Obviously, we don’t know much about the actual performance of this new processor. However, it is expected that it will be something incredible and that manufacturers will fight hard to secure this APU in their models that are more geared towards pure and hard performance.
Besides, what do you think of all of this? Excited about the news? We’ll find out more during CES 2022. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
