Ryzen Pro is AMD’s processor brand for enterprise products. This time AMD officially released
the Ryzen Pro 6000 series based on the Zen 3+ architecture, providing a new choice for business and professional laptops. In addition, AMD also launched three Ryzen Pro 5000U series products.
The Zen 3+ architecture APU codenamed Rembrandt
on the notebook platform has attracted the attention of many consumers. In addition to further optimization of the original Zen 3 architecture, the new generation of Ryzen Pro 6000 series is equipped with a GPU of the RDNA 2 architecture and supports USB 4, PCIe 4.0, and LPDDR5/DDR5 memory at the same time. It is manufactured with a 6nm process and replaced with an FP7 socket, with a maximum of 8 cores and 16 threads, and a boost clock of 4.9 GHz.
The new generation of Ryzen Pro is divided into Ryzen Pro 6000H series and Ryzen Pro 6000U series, the 6000H series has a TDP of 35W (HS) or 45W (H), and the 6000U series has a TDP of 28W, which can range from 15W to 30W. Unlike consumer products, these Ryzen Pro 6000 series suffixes all end in “50”.
The three Ryzen Pro 5000U series are still based on the Zen 3 architecture and 7nm process, and the GPU is also the old Vega architecture. Its suffix ends with “75”, which is different from the previous consumer-grade products ending with “25”. The TDP is 15W, and the range can be between 10W and 25W.
Compared with the Zen 3 architecture core codenamed Cezanne, the Ryzen Pro 6000 series has stronger performance and longer battery life. AMD says the Ryzen Pro 6850U has up to 29 hours of battery life for video playback, a 10% increase in performance at 15W, and a 30% increase at 28W compared to its predecessor. The graphics performance is even more obvious, with a 50% increase at 15W and a 110% increase at 28W.
Lenovo and HP are launching a number of laptops with new APUs that consumers will presumably see in the coming weeks, some of which were featured at CES 2022.
