UPDATE: AMD has shared all the details now, and you can see our full coverage in our AMD Teases 5nm Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ Zen 4 CPUs, Unveils Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 96MB of L3 Cache and AMD Unveils 6nm Ryzen 6000 ‘Rembrandt’ Chips With Zen 3+, RDNA2 and DDR5 articles.
AMD CEO Lisa Su tweeted an image this morning that appeared to be AMD's upcoming Ryzen 6000 'Rembrandt' mobile processors, and now the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the group behind CES, has revealed more details about the chip via a new Honoree award posted to its website.
The listing confirms the new chips come with the RDNA2 graphics architecture, a massive step forward from the Vega graphics on the current-gen Ryzen 5000 Mobile 'Cezanne' chips. The new chips also support "DDR5 technologies,' another nice step forward from the DDR4/LPDDR4X support with the previous-gen chips.
As with all of AMD's mobile processors, these chips will eventually come to the desktop PC, too, much as we see with the impressive Cezanne-powered Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G.
Happy New Year and welcome to 2022! We are kicking off the year with lots of new tech - hope you will join us for our #AMD2022 Product Premiere on January 4th at 7am PT: https://t.co/ixOLhxjkuM pic.twitter.com/DT0pXHiLXwJanuary 3, 2022
The award also lists support for AI-audio processing and Microsoft's Pluton technology, with the latter being the first time we've seen this new security tech in a PC. Pluton enables more robust security that helps prevent physical attacks and encryption key theft while protecting against firmware attacks, a welcome feature when you're on the go with your laptop. This tech originally debuted in the Xbox and AMD's EPYC data center processors.
Given the teaser shot and the CES 2022 award, it's assured that AMD will share more details about the Ryzen 6000 Mobile processors during its keynote today on January 4, 2022. You can see that here at 7am PT.
So, with RDNA architecture and DDR5 support, the 6000 series APUs are going to have some great potential.
AMD's weak spot has been its video encoders and decoders - a point where Intel iGPUs have been traditionally excelling at.
The video editing community would embrace the Ryzen6000 if it brings a video engine of similar prowess as those QSV codes found in modern Intel's iGPUs.
2000 for a consumer mainstream motherboard...... haha......
Its not even HEDT to begin with....
$2000 is an absolutely crazy absurd price for any consumer targeted motherboard. I used Intel HEDT platforms for years, and $4-500 was about the top end. People are complaining about GPU prices, motherboard prices are where the real rip offs are occurring. High end mainstream boards are all in the $500-1000 range now with ridiculous boards like this Asus reaching $2000. Those aren't scalper prices, those are the actual prices, and you can't make any money back mining with a motherboard like you can with a GPU to recoup some/all your costs.
