AMD Ryzen 9 PRO 6950HS

AMD R9 PRO 6950HS

The AMD Ryzen 9 PRO 6950HS is a processor for big (workstation) laptops based on the Rembrandt generation. The R9 6950HS integrates all eight cores based on the Zen 3+ microarchitecture. They are clocked at 3.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.9 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 lower TDP and therefore a lower sustained performance than the HX version. Professional version of the consumer R7 6800HS with additional managment features and the Microsoft Pluton Security processor.

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.

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.

Performance

The average 6950HS in our database is in the same league as the Intel Core i7-1280P, AMD Ryzen 9 4900H, Intel Core i7-11800H, as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned - which puts it somewhat behind the mighty 12th Gen Alder Lake-H processors. This Ryzen 9 series chip is still more than good enough for proper gaming on the go as well as content creation, as of mid 2022.

Your mileage may vary depending on how high the CPU power limits are and how competent the cooling solution of your system is.

Power consumption

The Ryzen has a default TDP of 35 W (also known as PL1). That's too high to allow for a passively cooled design.

The APU is built with TSMC's 6 nm process for great, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.
