AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 6650HS vs AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850HS

AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 6650HS

► remove from comparison AMD R5 PRO 6650HS

The AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 6650HS is a processor for big (workstation) laptops based of the Rembrandt generation. The R5 6650HS integrates six of the eight cores based on the Zen 3+ microarchitecture. They are clocked at 3.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.5 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (12 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 6650HS is the professional version of the consumer R5 6600HS with additional management 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.

In the 6000 series, AMD finally switched to the current RDNA 2 graphics architecture for the iGPU. The 6650HS only offers the slower Radeon 660M with 6 of the 12 CUs enabled and 1.9 GHz max. clock rate.

Performance

While we have not tested a single system built around the 6650HS as of August 2023, we have tested at least one system featuring the 6600HS, a chip with very similar specs (6 cores, 12 threads, up to 4.5 GHz, Zen 3+). Based on that, expect the 6650HS to be about as fast as the Ryzen 5 5600H, the Ryzen 7 5800U and also the Core i7-1260P, as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned.

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

Power consumption

This Ryzen 5 has a default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit) of 35 W. Which is way too high to allow it to become a heart of a passively cooled tablet, laptop, mini-PC.

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

AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850HS

► remove from comparison AMD R7 PRO 6850HS

The AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850HS is a processor for big (workstation) laptops based of the Rembrandt generation. The R7 6850HS 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 6850HS is the professional version of the consumer R7 6800HS with additional management 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 2.2 GHz. It should be the fastest iGPU of all at the time of announcement.

Performance

While we have not tested a single system powered by the 6850HS as of August 2023, it's safe to expect the chip to be about as fast as the 6800HS and the 6850H.

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

This Ryzen 7 has a default TDP of 35 W (also known as the long-term power limit). Which is way too high to allow it to become a heart of a passively cooled laptop, tablet, mini-PC.

The APU is manufactured on TSMC's 6 nm process leading to great, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.
