AMD held its CES 2022 event yesterday, where the company unveiled a range of new innovations: from AMD Ryzen 6000 chipsets to new GPUs for thin gaming laptops, to news about AMD Zen 4. You can find everything here You need to know about AMD’s announcements at CES 2022.
AMD Ryzen 6000 series
As the successor to the Ryzen 5000, Ryzen 6000 CPUs from AMD offer several further developments compared to the chipset of the last generation. The Ryzen 6000 is based on the Zen 3+ architecture and is based on TSMC’s 6 nm node manufacturing process. They have an onboard GPU that uses RDNA 2 and AMD claims these chipsets can run AAA titles at 1080p without the need for a dedicated GPU. They also support the latest technologies including Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 with LE audio, PCI Gen 4, AV1 codec, USB 4 and LPDDR5 storage.
Similar to previous chipsets, AMD Ryzen 6000 chips contain U-series and H-series processors. The processors of the Ryzen 6000 U-series are optimized for performance and efficiency in thin and light notebooks, while the processors of the Ryzen 6000 H-series are optimized for gaming and creator laptops. AMD also promises improvements in graphics. The company says the new chipsets are 1.3x faster to process and 2.1x faster to render graphics compared to the previous generation. They also claim the 6000 chipsets are more efficient – AMD says the chipsets use 30% less power during a video meeting.
AMD assumes that the first laptops with Ryzen 6000 CPUs will be available in February 2022.
GPUs for thin gaming laptops
Last year AMD announced RX 6000 GPUs. Today the company is expanding its portfolio with the announcement of the new RX6000S GPU series (“S” stands for Slim) for thin and light gaming laptops. The new series includes RX6600S, RX6700S and RX6800S GPUs.
According to AMD, the new Radeon RX 6000S series is optimized for mobile graphics cards to bring energy-efficient, high-performance gaming to incredibly thin and light gaming laptops. The company promises that the GPUs can handle AAA titles at high settings – the company claims 80+ fps at high settings for the RX6600S, 100+ fps at high settings for the RX6700S, and 100+ fps at maximum settings for the RX6800S.
In addition to the mobile GPUs, AMD has also announced the RX6500XT for desktop gamers. The GPU offers 2.6 GHz clock rates, a 6 nm process, 16 processing units and radiation accelerators as well as a 16 MB infinity cache. The GPU is priced at $ 199 and will be available later this month.

Finally, AMD also shared some information about the Zen 4 and Ryzen 7000 series. AMD confirms that the next generation chipsets will be built on a 5nm node process. The company will launch the new series in the second half of 2022, probably in October. The company also demonstrated Microsoft’s Halo Infinite game, which runs in Full HD on a pre-production chip at 5 GHz.
