AMD is clearly swinging for the fences with its new Ryzen 6000 mobile CPUs. For the first time, the business started at CES that they would feature integrated RDNA2 graphics, providing enough power to play recent games in 1080p. While AMD was quick to show off its top-of-the-line model, the Ryzen 9 6980HX, it said little about its U-series ultraportable technology. The chip giant, it turns out, was saving the most intriguing details for last.
While AMD’s new Radeon 680M integrated GPU provides higher graphical capabilities, the Ryzen 6000 range places a premium on efficiency. AMD was able to achieve this thanks to advancements in its Zen 3+ core, power management, and 6nm manufacturing.

For instance, AMD claims that in its 15-watt U-series parts, it could increase base clock speeds by around 40%. This resulted in a 17 percent performance boost over the previous generation; as well as an 81 percent increase in graphics performance and an extra three hours of battery life. Not bad for a company that had no presence in the ultraportable market just a few years ago.
AMD claims that its 15-watt U-series CPUs can practically smash Intel’s 11th-gen 28-watt processor, emphasizing the efficiency factor. According to the company’s tests, the new Ryzen 7 6800U is roughly 24% faster than the Core i7-11857G.
Internal testings must, of course, be taken with a pinch of salt. It’s also worth noting that AMD didn’t have access to Intel’s 12th-gen CPU; which, thanks to its hybrid core model, promises to be far superior to the 11th-gen.
With the Ryzen 6000 series, AMD promises that it is offering full-powered cores across the board, whereas Intel must choose between powerful P-cores and efficient (and outdated) E-cores. There’s no doubt that the Radeon 680M will be a compelling feature for popular gamers as well. AMD claims that its Ryzen 5 6600U can run Age of Empires 4 at 128 frames per second, compared to 86 frames per second for Intel’s Irix Xe graphics on the i7-1135G7.
