AMD’s newest mobile graphics technology brings RDNA 2 architecture to gaming laptops. The company says that means gamers could see up to a 1.5X performance boost compared to systems with first-gen RDNA graphics.

The first laptops with AMD Radeon RX 6000M series graphics should be available later this month, including models from Asus, HP, Lenovo, and MSI.

The first three AMD Radeon RX 6000M mobile graphics options include:

Compute UnitsGDDR6Game ClockMemory InterfaceInfinity Cache
Radeon RX 6800M4012GB2300 MHz @ 145W192-bit96MB
Radeon RX 6700M3610GB2300 MHz @ 135W160-bit80MB
Radeon RX 6600M288GB2177 MHz @ 100W128-bit32MB

In addition to delivering more performance at the same power level, AMD says the new chips can also offer the same performances as their predecessors while consuming 43-percent less power, which could help PC makers deliver thinner and lighter gaming laptops and mobile workstations.

AMD has also introduced the AMD Advantage Design Framework, which is sort of like Intel’s Evo program – an attempt to get PC makers to release devices that meet a minimum set of specifications.

Requirements include 144 Hz or higher IPS or OLED displays that offer at least 300 nits of brightness and AMD FreeSync technology, NVMe storage, and at least 10 hours of battery life during video playback.

AMD says the program also highlights 100 FPS or better gaming, but that’s a spec that will certainly vary from game to game.

  1. 12GB of video RAM in a notebook is crazy. Anandtech just did a review with the new Asus ROG Strix coming out with the 6800 card, and graphics performance seemed like a mixed bag to me.

    I’m not an expert, but I wonder if 12GB is really overkill for this particular card.

    1. Immediately prior to the GPU shortage, discussion on graphics cards concluded that no matter how many resources you have, it’s never enough (no card on the market can max out Cyberpunk).
      But now it’s changed to be more like “take what you can get!” so whether its overkill or not right now isn’t important.
