As you know, there are integrated graphics processors in the chips we call “APU” on the AMD side. It looks like the red team is getting ready to brand their next-generation onboard GPUs as the Radeon 600M series.
According to the leaks, the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX will not only feature 6nm Zen 3+ cores and RDNA 2 microarchitectures. In addition, a new marketing name will be used for the new graphics and it is claimed that the next generation Navi2 graphics will be called Radeon RX 680M.
This new GPU will be used by the Ryzen 9 6900HX, currently known as the flagship part of the “Rembrandt” APU series. It is currently unclear how many Compute Units the 680M will have, but Rembrandt silicon has already been confirmed to support up to 12 units.
Let’s also add that the Ryzen 9 6900HX is an 8-core and 16-thread mobile processor with 16MB of L3 cache and 4MB of L2 cache. The phrase HX means that the TDP will be unlocked for values above 45W. However, the Wattage will be at the discretion of the laptop manufacturers. Interestingly, the 6900HX flagship turned out to be equal to the 5900HX with a frequency of 4.6 GHz.
According to the report, AMD’s new APU will offer DDR5-4800 memory support. However, there is no mention of additional DDR4 memory support that the Intel Alder Lake-P series will offer.
AMD is gearing up to announce its Ryzen 6000 laptop processors at its CES 2022 press conference scheduled for January 4.
