With the release of Ryzen 6000, laptops based on Intel processors have lost their main peripheral advantage: Ryzen 6000 supports USB 4 at 40 Gb / s

Notebooks based on AMD Ryzen 6000 hybrid processors will soon be on sale, and one of their important features will be support for high-speed USB 4 interface – for the first time on an AMD mobile platform. This cancels out the benefits of Intel-based laptops, which have long supported the high-speed Thunderbolt 4 interface, and all because USB 4 in AMD-based laptops provides the same maximum data transfer rate of 40 Gb / s.

With the release of Ryzen 6000, laptops based on Intel processors have lost their main peripheral advantage: Ryzen 6000 supports USB 4 at 40 Gb / s

By and large, for the user, USB 4 and Thunderbolt 4 are one and the same, and even the connector for connecting is the same – USB-C. USB 4 on Ryzen 6000 laptops supports video output via DisplayPort 1.4a HBR3. USB 4 also delivers up to 240W of power.

Naturally, not all Ryzen 6000 laptops will be equipped with USB-C ports with a USB 4 interface (besides, there are a number of requirements, for example, booting from a drive connected to the PCIe bus), but the fact that laptops on the platform AMD finally got an interface as fast as this.

All AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will overclock above 50 GHz

An engineering sample of the new flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor lit up in a screenshot posted on the well-known Chinese forum Chiphell. The Windows task manager shows a frequency of 5.37 GHz, however, according to the insider Greymon55 (as well as data published on the Web earlier), the 16-core flagship of the Ryzen 7000 family will be able to overclock to 5.45 GHz with one or two active cores.

According to the same Greymon55, all Ryzen 7000 series processors will operate at a frequency of over 5.0 GHz when loading 1-2 cores. So, the maximum frequency of the Ryzen 7900X will be 5.3 GHz, the frequency of the Ryzen 7 7800X will be 5.2 GHz, the frequency of the Ryzen 5 7600X will be 5.1 GHz. Well, when loading all the cores, all these CPUs will be able to keep the frequency of 5.0 GHz.

AMD recently promised that its new graphics driver will bring gaming performance up to 24%. This driver is already available and we have test results.

AMD video cards have become dramatically faster by up to 17%, and possibly more.  The test of the new driver showed that there really is an increase

Unfortunately, the source did not test the games Crysis Remastered and Total War Saga: Troy, where AMD promised 24% and 17% growth, respectively. But even without them, the situation is generally clear.

AMD video cards have become dramatically faster by up to 17%, and possibly more.  The test of the new driver showed that there really is an increase

As you can see, on average for 50 games, the increase was 2-3% depending on the resolution, which is completely imperceptible during the game. But still it is more correct to look at the results in specific games.

And there really is something to appreciate. If we talk about Full HD, then in Watch Dogs: Legion the increase was 12%, and this is the maximum figure. At the same time, in 2K resolution in the same game, the increase was already 17%.

Also, a noticeable increase was observed in Death Stranding, Apex Legends, The Witcher 3, Forza 5 and a number of other projects. If we compare the results with AMD’s promises, then in the same Apex Legends the company promised a 5% increase, but in fact we have from 6% to 9% depending on the resolution, that is, the result is even better. So, perhaps, in the same Crysis Remastered, the growth will be even more than the promised 24%.

Separately, it is worth highlighting Godfall, where the new driver, on the contrary, leads to a decrease in performance by 2-7%.

No AMD will not be the first to offer a

It looks like all the rumors about AMD’s dual-chip chipsets were wrong after all.

Recall that in recent days there have been reports that the X670 will be a chipset consisting of two chipsets on one substrate. But, apparently, a broken phone or a bad translation of some source data from some Asian language worked.

No, AMD will not be the first to offer a dual-chip chipset to the market.  Asus X670 Prime motherboard schematic showing two separate chips

In any case, as you can see on the diagram of the Asus X670 Prime mainboard, the chipset will indeed have two chips, but they will be completely separate. This is similar to the northbridge/southbridge circuit that was used extensively in the past, but in this case, according to the available data, the chips are exactly the same. The chipset chip is codenamed Promontory and is an ASMedia development.

Judging by the diagram, one of the microcircuits will be located directly under the video card slot, and for now we can only guess if this will lead to excessive heating.

Recall that AMD will present new chipsets at Computex 2022 the other day.
