AMD also pleased with the announcement of new processors, but primarily mobile ones. They are part of the Ryzen 6000 line, and now again, AMD mobile and desktop processors will be in different numbered lines within the same year.
Be that as it may, the mobile Ryzen 6000 is really different from its predecessors. The processor part has changed little on paper: we have at most the same eight cores, but now with the Zen 3+ architecture. It’s not clear how much the Zen 3+ architecture itself is faster than Zen 3, but AMD is talking about some very serious increase in comparison with Ryzen 7 6800U and Ryzen 7 5800U. In particular, we are talking about 11% growth in single-threaded mode, 28% in multi-threaded mode, and in some tasks, apparently, where iGPU is actively involved, the increase is more than double! However, it should be borne in mind that the technical process is new here (6 nm), and the frequencies are significantly higher.

But still, the GPU has undergone the greatest changes. It is now an RDNA 2 core with 12 CUs with 768 stream processors. In addition, the frequency is higher than 2 GHz. Recall that the sensational portable console Steam Deck has an APU with the same GPU, but with only 512 stream processors. And we have already seen that the console is capable of handling even the most modern games, although it is worth making allowances for the low resolution of the console screen.
Be that as it may, AMD itself shows with its diagrams that the GPU Radeon 680M in the Ryzen 7 6800U is sometimes several times faster than the graphics core in the Core i7-1165G7 and even the discrete GeForce MX450. True, Intel already has more modern CPU Alder Lake with a more productive GPU, but AMD hardly had the opportunity to compare its new product with them. AMD also demonstrates that the same Ryzen 7 6800U is capable of coping with the latest games in Full HD, and FSR activation allows you to get more than 60 fps, and sometimes even more than 100 fps. Of course, you need to wait for a comparison with Intel’s new products, but the new mobile Ryzen may well be carriers of the most productive integrated GPUs at the moment.
AMD is also focusing on improved energy efficiency, claiming that the new Ryzen 6000U can consume up to 30% less power than its predecessors.
The rest is worth noting support for PCIe 4.0, DDR5, USB 4, Wi-Fi 6E. AMD expects laptops with the new APUs to be available in February. As you can see, there are no new models with four cores in the line now, but there are updated processors of the previous generation with slightly increased frequencies. Apparently, they will be responsible for the lower part of the segment.
Separately, it’s worth noting that AMD says its Ryzen 6000 is the first x86-compatible processor to fully support Windows 11’s advanced security features, thanks to Microsoft’s embedded Pluton security processor.
The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique. It has a 12-core processor, although it’s far from record-breaking performance.
The Kirin 9000s platform continues to bring surprises, although smartphones based on it have been on sale for some time.
After the latest Huawei flagships received HarmonyOS 18.104.22.168, Geekbench software began to define the characteristics of the new SoC differently. If earlier it was seen as an eight-core solution, now the number of processor cores is indicated as 12.
It’s worth remembering here that AnTuTu initially determined that the platform had exactly 12 cores, however, including two Cortex-A34.
Geekbench, well, indicates the types of cores, but talks about three clusters: four cores with a frequency of 1.53 GHz, two with a frequency of 2.62 GHz and six with a frequency of 2.15 GHz. This information is confirmed by screenshots from the mobile version of the benchmark.
We have not yet seen mobile SoCs with 12-core CPUs. At the same time, the performance of the Kirin 9000s, despite this configuration, is far from flagship by 2023 standards, that is, the cores themselves are not the most powerful.
A year after the start of sales in China, Xiaomi’s 30-inch gaming monitor has finally reached Europe. The price has been announced
Sales of the new Xiaomi gaming monitor began in Europe: in April 2022, this model entered the Chinese market under the name Redmi Curved Monitor 30, but in Europe the device is called Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30.
The resolution of the curved panel is 2560 x 1080 pixels, the radius of curvature is 1.8 m. Maximum brightness is 300 cd/sq.m., contrast is 3000: 1. The stated pixel response time is 4 ms, AMD FreeSync Premium, Picture- in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture. Video inputs include one DisplayPort, HDMI 2.1 and HDMI 1.4.
In the UK, the Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30 costs 240 pounds, in Spain – 240 euros.
The Core i9-14900KF is extremely slightly ahead of the Core i9-13900K and significantly behind the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. The results of the new Intel CPU have appeared in PassMark
The Core i9-14900KF processor appeared in the PassMark benchmark database and immediately became the leader in the single-threaded performance rating.
Despite the fact that technically the Core i9-14900K/KF is a complete copy of the Core i9-13900KS, apparently there are some settings related to power limits. As a result, the new model is still a little faster than its predecessor, although this is unlikely to be noticeable in practice.
But in multi-threaded mode, which is much more important from a practical point of view, everything is more interesting: the new product differs vanishingly little in performance from the Core i9-13900K, and is even inferior to the Core i9-13900KS. And all of them are noticeably behind the Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
