AMD is gearing up for a new generation of business laptops. Ryzen Pro 6000 series processors with Zen 3+ cores and integrated RDNA 2 graphics were unveiled today by AMD. Some older Ryzen Pro 5000 processors are also kept on hand by the company.
The Ryzen Pro 6000 H-series chips are available in six different configurations; ranging from the six-core/12-thread Ryzen 6 Pro 6650H and 6650HS to the Ryzen 9 Pro 6950H and 6950HS. The Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U and Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U are two U-series processors.

Details about the U-series processors
AMD gave details on their U-series processors to illustrate performance. It says that the 6850U delivers 1.1x the CPU performance of the previous-generation 5850U at 15W, and 1.3x at 28W. It’s a 1.5x and 2.1x gain in GPU performance, respectively.
A Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 with a Ryzen 7 Pro 6860Z, 32GB of LPPDR5-6400 RAM, and a 1TB SSD was pitted against a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon with a Core i7-1260P, 16GB of LPDDR5-5500 RAM, and a 1TB SSD. In Cinebench R23, AMD claims a 25 percent increase in multi-thread performance; a 50 percent increase in Passmark 10 scores, and quicker graphics in 3DMark Time Spy. The single-core Cinebench results were lower than those of the Intel processor. AMD claimed it was up to 17% faster in a test that included a Teams video chat and the UL Procyon Office productivity metrics.
Moreover, AMD is making bold battery life promises, claiming that the Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U can play video for 29 hours on an unidentified laptop with a Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U engine and a 150-nit display. On the MobileMark 2018 battery life test, AMD claims that HP EliteBook 865 G9 with a 6850U and a 76 WHr battery lasted over 26 hours.
