Today AMD Hosted its press conference from CES 2022 in Las Vegas, including the reveal of new CPUs and GPUs.
CEO Lisa Su started the conference by announcing that 350 million PCs have been shipped in 2021.
Moving on with new product announcements, we hear about the Ryzen 6000 Series mobile, boasting Zen 3+ cores, RDNA 2 graphics, and 6nm architecture. The new chips tops at 5 Ghz boost, 1.3x faster processing, and 2.0x faster graphics.
The new Ryzen 7 6800U compared to the older 5800U is said to provide 69% performance uplift in video encoding, +125% in 3D rendering, and +100% in gaming,
AMD also promises “truly playable 1080p gaming on the go” including FidelityFX Super Resolution support.
Next, we hear about GPUs, staying on the realm of laptops with the Radeon RX6000S series for slim models, on top of an expanded RX6000M series.
