Ryzen 5

Laptops have come a long way from their early days of being mere word processors. Today, they are multi-functional machines that can do just about anything from gaming to video editing and everything in between. But with the increasing demands for performance, there is a need for processors that can keep up with the pace. Enter the AMD Ryzen 5 5600HS, a processor designed specifically for big gaming laptops based on the Cezanne generation.

The Zen 3 Microarchitecture

The Ryzen 5 5600HS integrates six of the eight cores based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture, clocked at 3 GHz (guaranteed base clock) to 4.2 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (12 threads). Compared to the 5600H (up to 52 W), the 5600HS is configured to a TDP of 35W.

The Zen 3 microarchitecture offers a significantly higher IPC (instructions per clock) compared to Zen 2. For desktop processors, AMD claims a 19 percent increase on average, and in application reviews, there has been an average of 12% gains at the same clock speed.

The Processor in Detail

In addition to the six CPU cores, the APU also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 6 integrated graphics card with 6 CUs and up to 1800 MHz. The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-3200 and energy-efficient LPDDR4-4266 RAM. Furthermore, 16 MB level 3 cache can be found on the chip.

The TDP of the APU is specified at 35 Watt, making it suitable for thin gaming laptops. The Ryzen 5 5600HS also features XFR, FMA3, SSE 4.2, AVX2, and SMT, making it a powerhouse of a processor.

Comparison with Other Processors

When compared with other processors in the Cezanne (Zen 3, Ryzen 5000) series, the Ryzen 5 5600HS stands out with its six cores and twelve threads. The Ryzen 9 5980HX, for instance, has 8 cores and 16 threads, while the Ryzen 9 5900HX has 8 cores and 16 threads. The Ryzen 9 5980HS and the Ryzen 9 5900HS both have 8 cores and 16 threads. The Ryzen 7 5800H has 8 cores and 16 threads, while the Ryzen 7 5800HS has 8 cores and 16 threads.

In terms of clock rate, the Ryzen 5 5600HS has a clock rate of 3000 - 4200 MHz, making it one of the fastest processors in its class.


The AMD Ryzen 5 5600HS is a processor designed for big gaming laptops, and it is packed with features that make it one of the best processors in its class. With its six cores and twelve threads, the Ryzen 5 5600HS is capable of handling the most demanding tasks with ease. Whether you are a gamer, a video editor, or just someone who needs a powerful laptop, the Ryzen 5 5600HS is an excellent choice.
