AMD’s new Zen3+ Ryzen mobile CPUs support DDR5 RAM and USB4

Intel is already creating waves with its Alder Lake lineup, and the company is reportedly cooking up an i7 laptop chip that’s 25% faster than AMD’s current offering. However, it looks like the red team is gearing up to defend its mobile CPU crown, as it just announced 20 new Ryzen Zen 3+ mobile CPUs at CES 2022.

Featuring 12 GPU Compute Units clocked at 2.4GHz, AMD’s Rembrandt offering consists of eight Ryzen 6000H series CPUs and two 6000U SKUs. The company’s entry-level Ryzen 7 6800U and Ryzen 5 6600U chips come with a 15-25W TDP, while its Ryzen 9 6980HX flagship wields boost clock speeds up to 5Ghz.

The new Rembrandt APU range also boasts USB4, PCIe Gen 4, DDR5 RAM support, and RDNA2 graphics, meaning AMD’s gaming laptop lineup is now equipped to take on Intel’s Alder Lake. The Zen 3+ mobile APU will also be the first to support hardware ray tracing, and FSR compatibility will boost fps in upcoming games.
