AMD Ryzen 6000 first released with Microsoft Pluton chip

In November 2020, Microsoft released Pluton, a new security chip for Windows PCs, and said it was working with Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm to integrate the chip into their CPUs. After a year, the AMD Ryzen 6000 series finally took the lead in integrating this chip.

AMD said that the Ryzen 6000 series is the world's first x86 processor to fully support Windows 11 security features, bringing comprehensive protection from the chip to the cloud to defend against a variety of emerging and sophisticated attacks and ensure data security.

Pluton and TPM have similar functions, the difference is that TPM is independent of the processor, and hackers are likely to intercept the communication information between the TPM and the CPU. Pluton is integrated into the CPU, thus avoiding this problem.

AMD says that as of January 2022, only AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors include the Microsoft Pluton Secure Processor.

AMD has now released the Ryzen 6000H / U series processors, using 6nm process, Zen3+ architecture CPU, RDNA 2 architecture GPU. Vendors such as Asus, Dell, and HP are expected to start shipping the first laptops with AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors in February 2022.
