AMD launches Ryzen Pro 6000 CPUs for laptops

This week, AMD revamped its Ryzen Pro line-up of processors for laptops. Like previous Pro series chips, the new Ryzen Pro 6000 CPUs are aimed at enterprise and business laptops, rather than general consumer or gaming laptops. The Ryzen Pro CPUs offer additional security features. 

AMD's new Ryzen Pro 6000 laptop chips are based on the Zen3+ architecture (6nm), featuring up to 8 cores and 16 threads. Clock speeds go as high as 4.9GHz, depending on the CPU, offering up to 1.3x the performance of Ryzen Pro 5000 series chips. For the integrated graphics, we have an RDNA 2-based solution promised to deliver up to twice the performance of the previous-gen Vega iGPU.

The Ryzen Pro 6000 series line-up is divided into two segments: the Pro 6000 H-series with 35W (HS) and 45W (H) TDPs and the Pro 6000 U-series with a 28W TDP. Specification-wise, they're like their non-Pro counterparts (for example, 6900H to 6950H). Separately, AMD is also launching the new Pro 5000-U series, sharing the same specs as their respective non-Pro equivalents (5825U, 5625U, and 5425U).

According to the slides, the new laptops can provide up to 29hrs of continuous video playback on battery. In addition, the new chips outperformed Intel's Tiger Lake and Comet Lake mobile chips in MobileMark 2018 battery life test by 4/5 hours and AMD Ryzen 5×25 series APUs by around five and a half hours.

AMD Ryzen Pro 6000 series chips lose to the competition in single-thread tests. However, it's in multi-threaded scenarios and graphics where AMD's new business-oriented chips shine, offering up to 15% more performance in productivity tasks.

Lenovo and HP laptops will be the first OEMs to launch laptops using these chips. Lenovo will have the Ryzen Pro 6000 series chips as an option for multiple ThinkPad, ThinkBook and V-series notebooks. HP will use the new Ryzen Pro APUs in the ProBook, EliteBook and 245/255 laptops.

KitGuru says: Performance-wise, the new chips should offer similar results to the non-Pro models. Overall, they should be good performers, especially in multi-threaded workloads.
