The AMD Ryzen 9 6980HS is a large (gaming) laptop processor based mainly on Rembrandt technology. R9 6980HS integrates all eight cores based chiefly on the Zen 3+ microarchitecture. They’re clocked at 3.3 (assured base clock) to five GHz (Turbo) and assist SMT / Hyperthreading (16 threads). The chip is manufactured on the trendy 6 nm TSMC course.

The brand new Zen 3+ refreshes the Zen 3 structure and mustn’t provide many modifications. The chip itself, nevertheless, provides quite a lot of new options, as assistance for USB 4 (40 Gbps), PCI-E Gen 4, DDR5-4800MT/s or LPDDR5-6400MT/s, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth LE 5.2, DisplayPort 2, and AV1 decode.
The processor efficiency must be greater than the outdated Ryzen 9 5980HS because of the enhanced upper clock (+200 MHz). The new Alder Lake cell CPUs with 14 cores (like the Core i9-12900HK) should provide the next multi-core efficiency. Compared with the same AMD Ryzen 6980HX (45W, overclocking assist), the restricted TDP should cut back the sustained efficiency of the 6980HS.
An enormous novelty is the built-in GPU Radeon 680M, that’s now based mainly on the RDNA2 structure and provides 12 CUs at as much as 2.4 GHz. It must be the quickest iGPU of all at the time of announcement.
