AMD has announced its long-awaited series of mobile graphics processors Radeon RX 6000M, including its RDNA 2 architecture.
This new edition consists of three chips: RX 6800M (adjustable up to 145 W and more), RX 6700M (up to 135 W) and RX 6600M (up to 100W).
AMD says the flagship 6800M offers the fastest AMD graphics for laptops to date; claims that the 6800M will perform modern AAA games with a frame rate that are comparable or better than Nvidia’s mobile RTX 3080.
It also needs to outperform the Nvidia chip while playing on batteries. AMD says the RX 6700M will deliver up to 100 fps per second of the popular game at 1440p resolution.
The 6600M is better for “epic 1080p games”. Watch for independent reviews of these chips in the coming weeks to get more a good idea of the performance you can expect from everyone.
The 6000M series will be available from June 1.
The Radeon RX 6700M is AMD’s first laptop GPU to feature more than two graphics compute units.
AMD tells us it’s also the first mobile graphics card ever to ship with 8GB of HBM2 memory.
There are eight shaders in the chip, which AMD tells us will deliver approximately 1.9 teraflops of compute performance.
Last year’s RX5600M was still more powerful than the most powerful integrated graphics solution available locally, according to AMD.
The RX 6600M is AMD’s first mobile GPU with an embedded Radeon Pro core. It isn’t a true Radeon Pro GPU, though; AMD tells us it has 95% the same power envelope as the previous-gen RX4600M.
They are all 13-inch laptops with nice carbon fiber exteriors, and AMD says they have 11 hours of battery backup.
Ironically, AMD told us the laptops are designed so the proprietary battery is located under the keyboard.
The first announced AMD Advantage laptop is Asus’s new ROG Strix G15. It can be configured with Ryzen 9 5900Hx, Radeon RX 6800M, and a 15-inch WQHD 165Hz display with a response time of 3 ms.
The G15 will be available in the Best Buy Shops in June.
