AMD Ryzen Pro 7 6860Z: Specifications of the exclusive ThinkPad Z13 CPU have been released

Share This Post

This is a Zen 3+ CPU with eight cores – this was the extent of knowledge we had thus far about this chip, as neither Lenovo nor AMD published specifications for it. Even after AMD separately announced the Ryzen Pro 6000 series in April, no specifications were published. Now, the availability of the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 gets closer, and Lenovo has published a more detailed spec-sheet for the first time. This also includes new info on the processor.

The AMD Ryzen Pro 7 6860Z CPU is specific to the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13. The octacore Ryzen Pro 6850U is a modified version of this U series CPU with a TDP of 15 W. Lenovo has announced the first specifications of the CPU with the “Z” suffix, along with the precise specifications of the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13. When Lenovo unveiled the new ThinkPad Z series in January, which are the first high-end ThinkPad laptops to be powered only by AMD processors, there was another surprise: Lenovo also revealed that an AMD processor will be offered exclusively in the ThinkPad Z13: the AMD Ryzen Pro 7 6860Z.


  • Looking at the specs, it quickly becomes apparent that the Ryzen 7 6860Z is just a variation of the well known AMD Ryzen Pro 7 6850U. On paper, these CPUs are almost identical, but the Ryzen 7 pro 6860Z has a maximum clock rate of 4.725 instead of 4.7 GHz. It is not completely out of the question that AMD has modified the CPU in a few more ways not covered in this brief CPU spec sheet. But based on it, the “exclusive CPU” for the ThinkPad Z13 seems to be more of a marketing stunt than anything substantial. It is probably meant to sweeten the “AMD exclusivity” deal for Lenovo.
