AMD's New Product Line at CES 2022, Great!


AMD showcased a lineup of new products at CES 2022, from the Ryzen 6000 for laptops to new GPUs.

Most of the new products that AMD exhibited at the annual event were intended for laptop devices, although some were positioned for desktop devices, as quoted by GSM Arena, Friday (7/1/2022).

AMD's biggest announcement at CES 2022 is of course the Ryzen 6000 mobile, including 10 new APUs for laptops with new CPU and GPU options. The new CPU uses the Zen 3+ architecture, which is an update from the Zen 3 used in the Ryzen 5000.

This processor is made using the 6nm process from TSMC, and the changes are focused on reducing power consumption. AMD promises a reduction in power consumption in light activities such as watching Netflix.

However, the performance is still increasing, which is 28% faster when comparing the 6800U with the 5800U.

Then the GPU used also has a new architecture, namely RDNA 2, which is equipped with features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing, 2x larger L2 cache, 50% larger compute engine, and DirectX 12 Ultimate support.

This GPU upgrade is promised by AMD to be significant compared to the integrated GPU in the Intel Core i7-1165G7 and discrete GeForce MX450. While the increase compared to the Vega GPU in Ryzen 5000 is claimed to have increased by 2x.

Ryzen 6000 supports modern features, such as USB4, PCIe Gen4, DDR5/LPDDR5, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2, and AVI decoding.

To accompany this new processor, AMD has also released a number of new GPUs for laptops. This includes the new Radeon 6600S series designed for thin and light gaming laptops, as well as the RX 6800S and RX 6700S.

AMD also updated the Radeon 6000M line with five new GPUs, namely 6850M XT, 6600M XT, 6600M, 6500M, and 6300M. Then for the desktop, there is the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which is the entry level option for a desktop graphics card.

Basically the RX 6500 XT is the RX 6600 XT but with the specs circumcised in half. Such as 16 compute units, 32 ROP, 16MB Infinity cache, and 4GB VRAM. The clock speed is 2,610 MHz, and the chip is based on TSMC's 6nm process. Price? Starting at USD 199 and available on January 19th.

There's also a new desktop processor, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is actually a 5800X but with AMD 3D V-Cache technology. The number of cores and threads is the same, and the clock speed is slightly lower but with a super large cache, which is 100MB.

AMD claims this new processor is faster than the Ryzen 9 5900X and Intel Core i9-12900K for gaming, which will be released in spring 2022.
