AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS
The AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS is a processor for big (gaming) laptops based of the Rembrandt generation. The R7 6800HS integrates all eight cores based on the Zen 3+ microarchitecture. They are clocked at 3.2 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.7 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (16 threads). The chip is manufactured on the modern 6 nm TSMC process. The HS variant offers a 10 W reduced TDP and therefore a lower sustained performance than the H version.
The new Zen 3+ is a refresh of the Zen 3 architecture and should not offer a lot of changes. The chip itself however, offers a lot of new features, like support 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 performance should be between the old Ryzen 9 5980HS and Ryzen 9 5900HS due to the 4.7 GHz boost clock and similar architecture. However, the new Alder Lake H-series CPUs, like the i7-12800H, should offer a higher performance. The similar R7 6800H (45W) has a higher TDP and therefore should be faster when running long term multi-threaded loads.
A big novelty is the integrated GPU Radeon 680M, that is now based on the RDNA2 architecture and offers 12 CUs at up to 2.2 GHz. It should be the fastest iGPU at the time of announcement.
This Ryzen 7 has a default TDP of 35 W (also known as the long-term power limit). Which is definitely too high to allow for passively cooled designs.
The APU is built with TSMC's 6 nm process making for great, as of early 2023, energy efficiency.
