Thanks to its 6nm process technology, AMD promises big performance and power efficiency improvements compared to the Intel competition. The chipmaker claims to deliver up to 17% faster performance when using Office apps with a Microsoft Teams call in the background, as well as “up to 45% longer battery life for Microsoft Teams conferencing compared to the competition.”
These new CPUs from AMD are also the first x86 processors to integrate a Microsoft Pluton security chip designed to improve security on Windows 11. AMD also promises 18 months of planned software stability, 24 months of planned availability, and enterprise-grade quality assurance process and reliability.
AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 Series processors will soon be found in new HP EliteBook and Lenovo ThinkPad models, and other devices. “You’ll find Ryzen PRO inside many other business laptops, Chromebooks, desktops and workstations alike with over 20% more platforms coming in 2022 than last year,” the company said today.
