AMD Ryzen 9 6980HS
The AMD Ryzen 9 6980HS is a processor for big (gaming) laptops based on the Rembrandt generation. R9 6980HS integrates all eight cores based on the Zen 3+ microarchitecture. They are clocked at 3.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 5 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (16 threads). The chip is manufactured on the modern 6 nm TSMC process.
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 a bit higher than the old Ryzen 9 5980HS thanks to the higher boost clock (+200 MHz). The new Alder Lake mobile CPUs with 14 cores (like the Core i9-12900HK) should however offer a higher multi-core performance. Compared to the similar R9 6980HX (45W, overclocking support), the limited TDP should reduce sustained performance of the 6980HS.
A big novelty is the integrated GPU Radeon 680M, that is now based on the RDNA2 architecture and offers 12 CUs at up to 2.4 GHz. It should be the fastest iGPU of all at the time of announcement.
This Ryzen 9 has a default TDP of 35 W (also known as the PL1). Which is definitely too high to allow for passively cooled designs.
The APU is built with TSMC's 6 nm process for great, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.
