AMD Announces Ryzen 6000 PRO Series of Notebook Processors

AMD has unveiled a host of new laptop processors under its Ryzen PRO branding for corporate notebooks, although this time around, AMD has also tagged on an extra "50" to the model number. As such, the top of the range models are the Ryzen 9 Pro 6950H/HS, which appears to be more or less identical to the Ryzen 9 6900HX/HS. There's also a Ryzen 7 and 5 version in the H-series, as well as a Ryzen 7 and 5 in the U-series. In addition to these models, AMD also announced three new Ryzen PRO 5000 U-series models, which end up with the 75 suffix compared to the 25 suffix of the consumer models. These last three CPUs are based on the Zen 3 rather than the Zen 3+ architecture, just as with the consumer models.

AMD claims in excess of 26 hours of battery life from the Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U fitted inside an HP EliteBook 865 G9 with a 76 Wh battery pack. HP and Lenovo appear to be the launch partners for the new PRO series CPUs and HP will offer three different 800-series SKUs with the 6000-series processors and three other notebook series with the 5000-series processors. Lenovo on the other hand has its new Thinkpad Z13 and Z16 notebooks as AMD Ryzen 6000 PRO series exclusive models, as well as the four different Thinkpad models that will come with the same series of CPUs, plus several other models based on the 5000 series CPUs.

No Dell commercial laptop solution?
It seems that even 6000 PRO series isn't enough to convince Dell.
Also Lenovo is getting the exclusive 6860Z (probably HP not willing to make a specially designed commercial solution build around 6000 PRO) when HP (who was the only one supporting AMD in the post Sandy Bridge era up to Ryzen era in the commercial front) will have only 8 series EliteBooks.

HP is the only one I trust. I just hope they put 2.5Gbps NIC.

I guess both HP and Dell receive those Athlon 64 era type of "promotions" and "discounts" from Intel.

The best friend money can buy... :(

Dell has been a puppet of intel...

Ryzen 5000 laptop is still strong enough at low power,why not ADM try ultra low power mobile processors? That may easily defeat mobil pentium.

What bugs me about this press release is that there is no talk of the single biggest improvement Rembrandt has to offer - the GPU configuration. Zen3 CPU core performance isn't news; We've known about that for 18 months already and there are zero surprises to speak of because every site and streamer has covered the entire family to death since launch.

It's the RDNA2 IGPs are the hot news and they are especially important for prosumer/enterprise laptops because an IGP that supports CAD packages without needing a second Quadro dGPU is a big deal.
AMD don't even bother telling us how many RDNA CUs are in each model, let alone their clockspeed or whether the IGP will be using Radeon Pro drivers instead of the regular Adrenaline gaming drivers.

Yes, it is really odd. Frightening, if you wish. No sarcasm here.

Most OEM is happy to shove APU with MX330 + single channel RAM + HDD, so AMD skipping iGPU is natural.
