AMD has showcased whole 2022 product arsenal at CES to punish Nvidia, Intel, Qualcomm, Apple and more companies to fight for their existence in high performance silicon chip market. Most notable AMD future product highlights can’t even be ignored by Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang whose company just being sued by Federal Trade Commission for ARM acquisition attempt to stifle competing next-generation technologies. Next pain for Nvidia and Intel will definitely be AMD’s Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt APUs with RDNA2 monster integrated GPUs that pushed Nvidia to disable YouTube comments for CES presentation due to AMD made Ray Tracing possible in small mobile APUs.
AMD Dominates Nvidia, Intel, Apple, Qualcomm At CES Product Premiere
First off, AMD CEO Lisa Su had sent biggest reminder for doubters through AMD Ecosystem highlight which comprises Server, PCs, PS5, Xbox, Cloud Gaming, Automotive/EVs and Smartphone market. Upcoming Steam Deck Console also features AMD APU with RDNA2 graphics. Furthermore, Tesla electric vehicles start equipping AMD Ryzen processors and Radeon graphics within their infotainment system. Fortunately, AMD became 21st century’s classic Ford to democratize processing chips for low and mid-income people. Imagine the 64 core server powerhouse Epyc CPU casted by AMD’s Zen 3 architecture currently outsold any outdated Intel’s 14nm inefficient ones. Samsung prepares to dominate Apple and Qualcomm via AMD partnership by including Radeon graphics technology onto their Exynos mobile chips to grab smartphone gaming market share as soon as possible.
AMD Ryzen 7 6800U beats MX 450 in Gaming Performance
Next revolutionary gaming for hardworking office guy or average joe might be just an Ryzen 7 6800U mobile APU on single in-house chip providing RDNA2 12 Compute Unit graphics and 8 Zen 3+ processor cores. Nvidia’s MX 450 mobile discrete GPUs are facing existential threat from integrated graphics such as Intel Iris Xe and Radeon RDNA2 recently. Now Doom Eternal is 303% faster on Ryzen 7 6800U compared to i7-1165G7 and MX 450. Budget gamers may play DOTA2 on 1080p Ultra Settings+Vulkan using for cheaper price tag than before.
CS:GO appears to be getting a chef’s kiss from AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU users for gaining 146% over Core i7-1165G7 processor. Far Cry 6 is the latest triple A title with demanding graphics and processing but somehow AMD has managed to reach 59 fps on average at 1080p Medium settings using only Ryzen 7 6800U champion. Discrete GPUs for laptops are no longer needed for near future because single APU chip handles everything including Ray Tracing.
Up to 56% frame rate gain may be achieved after enabling the AMD FSR mode on Ryzen 7 6800U APU which doesn’t require tensor or AI cores to render the image via machine learning. Bulky and environmentally not friendly discrete graphics cards must question their existence within 5 years.
DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory modules tend to widen the integrated graphics bandwidth thus more fps gained through zero bottlenecks for AMD mobile Ryzen 6000 series APUs. Moreover, AMD powered laptops with PCI-E Gen4 chipset enables blazing speed between peripherals and other devices on the go plus USB4 with 40 GBPS pushes file transfer rate up to 10x higher. First laptops to take advantage from Zen 3+ technology’s Ryzen 7 6800U or Ryzen 9 6850HX are Lenovo Thinkpad Z series and ASUS ROG Zephyrus.
Radeon RX 6500 XT Becomes First 6nm Graphics Card
Surprising news from AMD was also an upcoming Radeon RX 6500 XT GPU with affordable $199 MSRP price tag and enormous performance enhancement through infinity cache and first 6nm transistor technology. AMD promises that RX 6500 XT can beat Nvidia’s GTX 1650 discrete graphics card by up to 59% in Resident Evil: Village title. Crypto miners won’t be able to mine profitable Ethereum with RX 6500 XT 4GB GPUs due to insufficient DAG size.
4k resolution gaming is made possible with latest AMD RSR (Radeon Super Resolution) technology that automatically enhances 1440p into 4k with flawless quality while keeping high frame rates. Of course, you need at least RX 6700 XT GPU to try 4k RSR on pretty much all esports games.
Ryzen 7 5800X3D Beats Core i9-12900K By Up To 17% In Final Fantasy XIV
Here comes big boom from two year old Zen3 architecture on 3D V-Cache steroids. Obviously, Ryzen 7 5800X3D becomes the first processor to use 3D stacking on 7nm node. They utilize 8 core processor for V-Cache experimental purposes to show Intel how’s true gaming processor must be with efficiency and cool running temperatures.
Ryzen 7000 Raphael CPUs Require New AM5 Motherboard Plus DDR5 RAM
Spicy part of CES 2022 is the AMD’s big revelation for Ryzen 7000 Raphael processors built on 5nm Zen 4 architecture. This time around AMD Zen 4 brings LGA socket for new AM5 platform with DDR5 memory too. That means AM4 chipset platform is discontinued in production line after second half of 2022. New B650 or X670 motherboard and pair of DDR5 RAM needed to jump into Ryzen 7000 ecosystem after successful AM4 ecosystem run.
Nvidia Disables Comments Section Of Their YouTube Channel While CES Broadcast
Meanwhile, Nvidia CEO is swimming in his money while company is sued by Federal Trade Commission and gamers get overwhelmingly overpriced GPU prices due to crypto mining craze and silicone chip shortage. Usually, arrogant Nvidia PR team can’t take any little criticism in the past from honest Tech reviews like Hardware Unboxed for not including Ray Tracing content because it wasn’t compelling for gamers yet. Currently, at the time of writing, Nvidia CES 2022 Special Address broadcast’s comments are still turned off to avoid criticism from true gamers.
