AMD has announced its new lineup of Ryzen 6000 series laptop processors, and the gaming improvements are massive. AMD’s integrated graphics on the 5000 series processors were already impressive but couldn’t handle some of the more demanding games. Now, thanks to the addition of RDNA2 graphics, the new AMD Ryzen 6000 series will allow gamers to play high-caliber games at 1080p/60fps on a laptop without the need for a dedicated graphics card.
While the graphics performance of the new Ryzen 6000 APUs is impressive on its own, AMD also showed off the performance when using the company’s Fidelity Super Resolution software. The Fidelity Super Resolution software boosts gaming performance by rendering games at a lower resolution and then upscaling them. This gives gamers upgraded graphical fidelity but takes some of the weight off the physical graphics card. In short, it provides huge boosts to FPS without having to change or upgrade an existing graphics card. What that means for the AMD Ryzen 6000 series laptop processors is that they can provide higher quality gaming than they otherwise would. Check out AMD’s performance chart for the new 6000 series processors above.
The graphics performance of the AMD Ryzen 6000 series is already incredible, as evidenced by achieving over 60fps in Call of Duty: Vanguard. However, when adding the Fidelity Super Resolution software into the mix, the results are downright astounding. All of the games that AMD shows in the picture above were released in the last few months of 2021. Integrated graphics capable of playing new AAA games at 1080p/60fps+ would have been unthinkable a few years ago.
The new AMD 6000 series lineup may not be what hardcore PC gamers are after, but if the performance results are accurate, needing a dedicated graphics card in a laptop for casual gaming will soon be a thing of the past.
