AMD Debuts Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics Solutions

AMD today released the Radeon RX 6000M series mobile graphics lineup, based on the RDNA2 graphics architecture. These GPUs offer full DirectX 12 Ultimate readiness, including real-time raytracing capability. The lineup is led by the Radeon RX 6800M, followed by the RX 6700M, and the RX 6600M. The RX 6800M and RX 6700M are based on the 7 nm "Navi 22" silicon, while the RX 6600M debuts the "Navi 23" silicon. The RX 6800M appears to be maxing out the "Navi 22" silicon, much like the desktop RX 6700 XT. It features 40 RDNA2 compute units, amounting to 2,560 stream processors; game clocks of up to 2.30 GHz, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface, and 96 MB of Infinity Cache. The RX 6700M is slightly cut down, with 36 compute units (2,304 stream processors), the same 2.30 GHz game clocks, 10 GB of video memory possibly across a 160-bit wide memory bus, and 80 MB of Infinity Cache.

The new RX 6600M debuts the 7 nm "Navi 23" silicon, with 28 RDNA2 compute units, game clocks of 2177 MHz, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit wide memory bus, and 32 MB of Infinity Cache. All three chips feature Smart Access Memory (resizable BAR), and support for AMD SmartShift, a feature that load-balances the discrete GPU with an AMD iGPU. AMD claims that the RX 6800M and RX 6700M are fit for 1440p gaming, with the RX 6800M beating the RTX 2070 Notebook by anywhere between 40-70%, and 120 FPS in a large selection of e-sports titles. The company also claims that the RX 6800M beats the GeForce RTX 3080 8 GB by 14-39%. The RX 6600M, meanwhile is shown matching the RTX 3060 6 GB, in AMD's tests. Notebooks powered by AMD Radeon RX 6000M discrete graphics are shipping now.
The graphics press-deck follows.

Going by AnandTech's review of the ROG Strix G15, the 6800M should be a runaway hit. Excellent performance, and the overall tuning of the system is downright staggering - matching the platform power efficiency (normalized for battery size) of an Acer 4600H + 1650 laptop :eek: They sadly don't have any 3080 mobile comparisons, but overall performance seems excellent (though that 1080p panel is stupid, seeing how most of their benchmarks are 100% CPU limited at that resolution). The 1440p165 SKU of the G15 seems like a fantastic laptop for people who don't mind a bit of size and weight. Definitely looking forward to reviews of the 6600M - should be a thin-and-light gaming laptop winner.

Dave2D did a small review and basically the 6800m trades blows with the top spec 3080 while costing 500 USD less. It also beats 3070 by a fair margin while being about $150 cheaper.

I'm not surprised. Did he get the 1440p SKU? In AT's testing the 1080p one has the 6800m trouncing everything (including a 3070 laptop) in 3DMark, but once it gets to native resolution benchmarks it's CPU limited all the way, finishing middle of the pack mostly. Still, it's matching 2080s and 3070s in 0% GPU limited scenarios, which is saying something! That GPU is clearly a beast that needs feeding. They also did some quick 2160p testing, and the GPU seems very well suited to 2160p60, or as AMD says, 1440p144 or thereabouts.

Which is... surprising, is it not?
Isn't CPU in that thing supposed to trounce blue chips?

Not necessarily in gaming on a laptop (different power limits between laptops makes it complicated), and comparing different CPU and GPU vendors at the same time throws all kinds of wrenches in the gears in terms of schedulers, driver overhead, etc.

Ah yes, more powerful graphics that even my i3 with his partner UHD 630 can easily be beaten by at least it runs.
If Intel doesn't get up and stop slacking AMD is most likely to whip them until they stand taller though even so, I'm still on team blue since I was using it for about a decade now ever since I was a toddler (yes I seen technology in the good old days when I was young.) I still have hope for them they just need to focus and work.
