AMD’s new processors are poised to show up in retail laptops. AMD has moved to a 6-nanometer (6nm) manufacturing process, which means more transistors on the chip. AMD claims a 30% increase in overall speed and performance over last year’s 7nm chip. With 12 compute units, the graphics improvements alone are impressive—you can even get ray tracing without a discrete graphics solution. AMD dubs this iteration to its architecture ‘Zen 3+’ The overall layout of the mobile CPU is largely unchanged, hence the Zen 3+ moniker, indicating an iterative update to last year’s Zen 3 chips. We’ll be testing the Ryzen 9 6900HS below, third down in the new Ryzen 6000 stack. . . .
