Many gamers will get excited to know that AMD RX 6000 series GPUs are finally coming for laptops. Yes, AMD’s CEO Dr. Lisa Su unveiled the upcoming RX 6000 series mobile GPUs at the virtual Computex event.
As we expected, three variants of RX 6000 series mobile GPUs are introduced namely, the RX 6600M, the RX 6700M, and their flagship 6800M. These GPUs are based on the RDNA2 architecture that supports DirectX ray tracing and Smart Access Memory. They also promise substantial 1.5X performance improvements or up to 43 percent better power efficiency than the previous generation. We have already seen the potential of the RDNA2 GPUs earlier.
Radeon RX 6800M comes with 40 compute units and ray accelerators feature 12GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit interface plus a 96MB Infinity cache and with a TDP of 145W. The Radeon RX 6700M has 36 CUs and ray accelerators, with 10GB of GDDR6 memory on a 160-bit bus and 80MB cache memory with 135W. The Radeon RX 6600M goes down to 28 CUs and ray accelerators, with 8GB of GDDR6 on a 128-bit bus and a 32MB cache with 100W.
According to AMD, the RX 6800M will be able to deliver over 120 FPS in the most recent titles whereas the RX 6700M and RX 6600M will be able to deliver 100 FPS at 1440p and 1080p respectively. AMD will be introducing Advantage Design Framework that will help to optimize the overall performance of the system by working side-by-side with laptop OEMs.
Apart from the GPU series, AMD also introduced Ryzen 5000 series APUs with integrated graphics namely, the Ryzen 5700G and the Ryzen 5600G. They have also introduced Cezanne-based Ryzen Pro CPUs for enterprise usage.
Ryzen 7 5700G is priced around $359 and offers 8 CPU cores with multi-threading, running at up to 4.6GHz as well as 8 GPU compute units. The Ryzen 5 5600G is priced around $259 and has six cores with multithreading plus 7 GPU CUs. Both the APUs will contain stock coolers.
The inclusion of the latest APUs is certainly an added advantage during these times due to the fact that normal GPUs are currently not available in the market properly. And the announcement of the RX 6000 series mobile GPUs will be a great option for those who prefer laptops over desktops.
