Alongside the bunch of other announcements, AMD today also announced its much-awaited RX 6000M mobile GPUs. The new GPUs comes in three configurations, Radeon RX 6800M, 6700M, and 6600M, and two of them will be available starting June.
Radeon RX 6800M
Radeon RX 6800M leads the RX 600M series. The flagship RX 6800M GPU comes with 40 compute units, 64 ROPs and 12GB of GDDR6 memory. In addition, the RX 6800M has a 145W+ TGP rating, meaning it will be coming in laptops with 145 W to 165 W designs. AMD is claiming that the flagship mobile GPU will be delivering 100 FPS in games at 1440p.
Radeon RX 6700M
The Radeon RX 6700M GPU comes with 36 compute units and 10GB of GDDR6 video memory. The RX 6700 will be coming with laptops with up to 80 to 135W designs. In addition, AMD is pitching that it will be capable of pushing 100 FPS at 1080p resolution, positioning it below the flagship RX 6800M.
Radeon RX 6600M
The RX 6600M is AMD’s latest entry-level mobile graphics based on the latest Navi 23 desktop GPU. However, the RX 6600M will be coming with 28 compute units instead of Navi 23’s 32 compute units configuration. Moreover, it will come with 8GB of GDDR6 video memory and a TGP rating of 100W, which can be reduced as low as 50W, according to AMD. The Radeon RX 6600M is pitched as a GPU for 1080p gaming.
The RX 6000M series GPUs will be supporting Smart Access Memory and PCIe resizable bar. However, it’s up to manufacturers to enable them. To make sure consumers get the overall package AMD announced, Advantage Design Framework.
AMD’s Advantage Design Framework
AMD’s Advantage Design Framework is something very similar to Intel’s EVO platform, but it’s for gaming laptops. The AMD Advantage laptops will feature AMD’s latest Radeon RX6000M GPUs, Ryzen 5000 CPUs, Smart Access Memory, SmartShift, FreeSync Premium-certified displays, NVME PCI-E Express Gen 3 storage and over 10 hours of video playback on battery.
The first laptop to be announced with the new mobile GPU series is Asus ROG Strix G1. The ROG Strix G1 will be coming with a 15-inch WQHD 165Hz display, up to Ryzen 9 5900Hx and Radeon RX 6800M. The ROG Strix G1 will be available starting June at Best Buy.
