AMD Ryzen 6000U series APU appears on ASUS Vivobook

At the upcoming CES 2022, AMD will release the Zen 3+ architecture APU code-named Rembrandt, which belongs to the Ryzen 6000 series. It will be manufactured using a 6nm process, support PCIe Gen4 and DDR5 memory, and configure a GPU of the RDNA 2 architecture to replace the Vega architecture and replace it with an FP7 socket.

Recently, Twitter user @Benchleaks discovered an AMD APU codenamed “100-000000560-40_Y” in BAPCo CrossMark, with 8 cores and 16 threads, frequency of 4.0 GHz, running in ASUS M3402RA laptop. Since the M3401 series is exclusive to the ASUS Vivobook series, it can be judged that the M3402 series will use AMD’s new generation APU. In addition, the system shows that this device is equipped with dual-channel DDR5-4800 memory, a capacity of 16GB, and a display resolution of 2560 x 1600, pre-installed with Microsoft Windows 11 Pro operating system

Since the current ASUS Vivobook series uses the Ryzen 5000U series APU, the device should be Ryzen 6000U series. The BAPCo CrossMark benchmark result shows that the overall score of the new APU is 1436. If compared with the Ryzen 7 5800U benchmark scores in the same database, the score has increased by about 4%. Of course, the new APU is more attractive to the GPU of the RDNA 2 architecture. The previously leaked benchmark test results show that it is close to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 mobile version.
