Before the release of Ryzen mobile processors, the most powerful CPUs found in laptops had two cores at most. High-core CPUs with integrated graphics (iGPUs) capable of running today’s games are now available from both Intel and AMD.
Both companies have continued to improve upon their already impressive processor speeds despite this performance boost.
AMD’s new Ryzen 6000 mobile processors are built on the Zen 3+ architecture. For the time being, the desktop series will skip the 6000s and proceed right to the 7000s, while the 6000s are reserved for laptops.
This article about Ryzen 6000 was written with the help of publicly accessible data, including leaks, rumours, and official releases.
Released in February 2022, the ASUS Zephyrus G14 was one of the first laptops to include a Ryzen 6000 processor. The processor in question was a Ryzen 9 6900HS.
More than 200 different Ryzen laptop models are expected to be available by the end of 2022.
Later in 2022, it’s probable that Ryzen 6000 processors may be made available as desktop APUs.
The transition to Zen3+ architecture is the main improvement for Ryzen 6000 over previous Ryzen mobile CPUs.
Zen 3 CPUs for desktops and laptops were already very efficient, competitive, and offered good value; therefore, an architectural revision will likely deliver even more significant gains.
The RDNA 2 GPU in these processors is a major selling point. You can only imagine the overall performance these iGPUs are capable of providing, given the popularity of the RX 6000 GPUs (which are based on RDNA 2). But about that later on.
Take a look at this table of all the Ryzen 6000 SKUs that will launch in 2022 if you’re thinking about purchasing a system that year.

Ryzen 6000, like its predecessors, will come in a “Pro” version with enhanced protections and a longer guarantee. Enterprise models are what you’ll hear them referred to as in marketing.
We have compiled a list of every Pro SKU that will be available in 2022.
Specs-wise, there is clearly no discernible difference. Pro variants, however, are often sourced from the best yielding wafers, thus they should be more durable over time than regular Ryzen CPUs.
Here’s a list of some high-end Ryzen 6000 laptops:
- ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301 – Ryzen 9 6900HS
- ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV601 – Ryzen 9 6900HS
- 2022 Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402 – Ryzen 9 6900HS
- 2022 Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503 – Ryzen 9 6900HS
