AMD’s laptop GPU department has been a bit thin relative to its newer generation, but a leak from their CES conference suggests that they are bringing a lot more options in their selection of Radeon 6000 mobile GPUs. Where previously they only had a selection From three graphics cards, from the Radeon RX 6800M, 6700M and 6600M, they are now adding eight more Radeon 6000 mobile GPUs.
The eight new Radeon 6000Ms will range from more and less powerful performance cards to thinner, light-focused graphics cards. In addition to its three Radeon 6000 mobile cards, there will be an additional five from that series that will offer better performance and others that are less powerful and cheaper. Plus a new S series of mobile GPUs that are less powerful and more focused on thin and light performance.
The new graphics cards for Radeon 6000 laptops
Five of the leaked mobile graphics cards are from its performance lineup to add to its three mobile GPUs. They consist of: Radeon RX 6850M XT, 6650M XT, 6650M, 6500M and 6300M. These are in addition to the Radeon RX 6800M, 6700M and 6600M. The new range will offer a wider range of options for its mobile cards, similar to its range of desktop GPUs. There will be more powerful and lower powered cards to fit more use cases.
The Radeon RX 6850M XT will be the most powerful mobile GPU AMD has to offer. The card will have 40 compute units (equal to 6800M) but will reach a higher frequency of 2463MHz compared to 2300MHz. Along with a higher clock rate, the card features higher memory speed (18 Gbps vs. 16 Gbps) and faster bandwidth (432 GB / s vs. 384 GB / s). Which also gives the card 20W higher power, up to 165W.
The RX 6650M and 6650M XT options are a variation of the RX 6600M. However, they offer more memory bandwidth along with faster memory. The non-XT offers a 2222 MHz clock compared to the 6600M’s 2177 MHz. But then the XT has less with 2162 MHz, but it is probably due to the higher number of compute units with 32 compared to 28.
And lastly, from the performance cards, there are low-power options built into 6nm compute nodes compared to 7nm on the other cards. The Radeon RX 6500M comes with 16 compute units running at 2191 MHz. It also only has 4GB of 18Gbps memory, with a 128-bit interface and an infinite 16MB cache. Along with a bandwidth of 288 GB / s, but it only works at 50W.
Then the RX 6300M runs on just 12 compute units, at 1512MHz. With 2GB of 18Gbps memory with a 128-bit interface and 8MB of infinite cache. Which also has a bandwidth of 288 GB / s and with an even lower TGP of only 25W. Therefore, a much less powerful card with low power consumption offers a low-end discrete option for laptops.
What is the Radeon RX 6000s series?
The Radeon RX 6000s series is a range of notebook GPUs that are more focused on the things and light market. The new range of mobile graphics cards consists of the Radeon RX 6800S, 6700S and 6600S. The same starting range as their first 6000M range, so they can expand it later as they have with the moving range.
They all come built into the 7nm process like the performance cards. The RX 6800S comes with 32 compute units running at 1975 MHz, with 8 GB of 16 Gbps memory with a 128-bit interface and 32 MB of infinite cache. And with 256GB / s bandwidth, the card only runs up to 100W, making it a less powerful card and more focused on efficiency.
The RX 6700S is equipped with 28 compute units running at 1890 MHz, with 8 GB of 15 Gbps memory and 32 MB of infinite cache. With the memory running at 224 GB / s and the card running at 80W. And finally, the RX 6600S is equipped with 28 compute units operating at 1881 MHz with 4 GB of memory at 15 Gbps. Along with 32MB of infinite cache, a 224GB / s bandwidth also has an 80W TGP.
In general, AMD is expanding its entire range of mobile GPUs to complete its options in the mobile market. Completing its performance range to offer a variety of options for different uses. As well as offering thin and light options to provide low-power discrete graphics to smaller laptops. And you can look forward to even more announcements at your next CES conference.
