The battle between AMD and NVIDIA to win favor with gaming enthusiasts has so far been uneven for AMD, as their architectures did not often end in gaming laptops. Its last attempt was the RX 5700M which passed with more of pain than glory because of its limited distribution. Well, during its presentation at Computex, AMD presented its AMD RX 6000M, with which they intend to stand up to NVIDIA.
This is the new GPU for AMD RX 6000M laptops
AMD today introduced its line of Radeon RX 6000M gaming laptop graphics cards, based on its RDNA 2 architecture and bringing with it all the new features of this graphics architecture to laptops such as Variable Rate support Shading, Infinity Cache and Ray Tracing support.
The RX 6000M range is based on three models; AMD Radeon RX 6800M, AMD Radeon RX 6700M and AMD Radeon RX 6600M. Where the RX 6800M and RX 6700M are based on the Navi 22 variant that we have already seen in the AMD RX 6700 XT desktop. While the AMD RX 6600M
With these new GPUs, AMD intends to gain market share in gaming GPUs for laptops, an elusive market for several generations of absence or limited presence with its GPUs.
AMD Radeon RX 6800M
The most powerful model in AMD’s new line of laptop gaming GPUs is the Radeon RX 6800, which has almost the same specs as the AMD RX 6700 XT by being based on the Navi 22 chip. a configuration of 40 compute units, 2.3 GHz Game Clock, 12 GB 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory, 96 MB Infinity Cache Yes a 145 W TGP.
AMD compares it to both the NVIDIA RTX 2070 and the NVIDIA RTX 3080, both of which are evident in their laptop versions. Compared to the RTX 2070 Mobile, the performance increase is between 40% and 70% more. Comparison of the latest AAA batch games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Dirt 5, and Resident Evil Village. But its direct rivals are the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 Mobile, gaming GPUs against which in many next-gen games it ranks you to you in performance according to AMD also in the same games and Borderlands. 3.
In terms of performance, the RX 6800M is designed for 1440p at 120 FPS in a large number of games, more than sufficient performance in a multitude of games without problems.
AMD Radeon RX 6700M
On the other hand, the RX 6700M is a little less powerful, since it has a configuration of 36 compute units although the same 2.3 GHz game clock
AMD, unlike the other two models, did not provide performance data compared to other laptop GPUs on the market.
AMD Radeon RX 6600M
The third model is the AMD RX 6600M, with which AMD launches its Navi GPU 23 with a configuration of 28 compute units, a 2177 MHz game clock, and an 8 GB 128-bit GDDR6 configuration. However, its Infinity Cache has been halved, since instead of being 64 MB as it should be due to the bandwidth of its memory controller is 32MB.
AMD places it as the rival of the RTX 3060 for laptops, where depending on the game performance is superior in one or the other. Although the RX 6600M has a huge advantage which is the fact that it has 8 GB of VRAM memory compared to the 6 GB of its NVIDIA counterpart.
While the AMD RX 6800M is the RX 6000M designed for 1440p, in this case we are talking about a graphics card designed to run games at 1080p. According to AMD, it has the capacity to move the vast majority of AAA games around at this resolution and at over 100 frames per second in each one.
A purely AMD ecosystem
As with the introduction of the desktop AMD RX 6000, the AMD RX 6000M were designed to perform much better than AMD processors, as they are optimized for the AMD Smart Access memory, Lisa Su’s enterprise version of the Resizable Bar, a feature of PCI Express.
But one tech that we thought wouldn’t return after debuting on the AMD RX 5700M first and PlayStation 5 later is the so-called SmartShift, a system in which, depending on the workload of the processor and GPU, power is redistributed, allowing small increases in the clock speed of the GPU at times when the processor does not need to ‘so much power to operate.
The AMD Smartshift communicates the telemetry units of AMD Ryzen Mobile CPUs with those of newer GPUs, so this is a feature that is not possible with the CPUs of Intel laptops when you use these different units for measure things such as temperature, voltage and clock speed.
The new laptops will also be optimized for the new versions of AMD Radeon software, which now make it possible to jointly bring out the performance of their Ryzen CPUs with their AMD Radeon GPUs. Something the newer AMD RX 6000M GPUs will take advantage of.
