AMD’s new Audinator Mobile graphics are here for laptops and I’ve got the top-end AMD Radeon RX 6800M.
So, let’s dive right into the specs of these new AMD Radeon RX 6800M laptop GPUs.
These are the three new laptop GPUs that are being announced today the Radeon RX 6600M 6700M and 6800M and they range from 8GB of GDDR6 memory up to 12GB.
The mobile chips feature Ray accelerators meaning ray tracing should be available in supported games the 6600M is recommended for 1080P gaming the 6700M is suggested for a mix of 1080 P and 1440P while the AMD Radeon RX 6800M is suggested for 1440P gaming with 145 watts and above power limits.
AMD Radeon RX 6800M Compare with Nvidia ATI X3070
Here’s how AMD says the top-end AMD Radeon RX 6800M compares against Nvidia ATI X3070 and 30 at laptops though these are games that tend to do well with Radeon graphics.
I’ll tell you the performance and some of the usual games I test later in this video is how the lowest 6600M compares against Nvidia is RTX 3060.
Again, primarily games that do better on Radeon graphics but still looking competitive rough benchmarks for the 6700M one provided, and it’s noted here that that model is shipping CERN whereas the AMD Radeon RX 6800M and 6600M is shipping now so not sure when to expect the middle tier 6700M.
For now, AMD is announcing two new gaming laptops featuring these new GPUs but I’m sure there’ll be more to come first up I’ve got the Asus Rog Strix G15 which is what I’ve got here, the new all AMD version is quite a bit different to the previous Asus Strix g15.
Asus Rog Strix G15 with AMD Radeon RX 6800M
This one will be available from early June with up to the Ryzen 9-5900HX processor and the AMD Radeon RX6800M graphics card, which is the configuration I’ve got.
It’s also got up to 1080P 300 hertz or 1440P 165-hertz screen options with free sync Premium and it’s got a liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU.
I don’t recall seeing fracing Premium in laptops before but basically, this means the screen is at least 120 hertz, Ohio with support for low framerate compensation or LFC.
It was also interesting to hear that there would be liquid metal used on the AMD Radeon RX 6800M here.
Usually, when companies add liquid metal to their laptop, they only do it to the CPU rather than the GPU as those typically diminishing returns and doing it to the Nvidia graphics is this a sign that the radio graphics might run hot?
Oh, I haven’t tested demos yet so I can’t say again. Stay tuned for the full review of this laptop.
Next up is the HP Omen 16 which you might have already heard about as HP announced it a few days ago though this one just says available CERN so not exactly sure what that is.
Again, this model goes up to the Ryzen 9-5900HX processor that is RX6600M graphics here it’s using a 16 inch 165-hertz screen again with free sync Premium there are going to be more all AMD models later this year from both MSI and Lenovo.
I’m guessing MSI will have a new model after the Alpha 15 and Bravo 15 models as they’ve had those old AMD designs in the past, but I think this will be the first time Lenovo has gotten on board the old AMD gaming laptop train, so it will be interesting to check out given their success with the Legion five.
These all-AMD models also make use of smart shift which dynamically allocates power between the CPU and GPU based on the workload so like a dynamic boost on the Nvidia side plus, they’re also using resizeable bar aka AMD smart access, memory, or sound and when combined, these features should offer a further performance boost in games.
Speaking of all AMD, they’re also announcing AMD advantage which is a way of ensuring laptops meet several minimum requirements such as good displays, good IR & good build quality, certain amounts of battery life, good thermals, and storage spades.
So, in theory, buying an AMD advantage laptop means there’s a level of user experience that can be expected as a baseline.
AMD also announced what is essentially their version of DlSS, which will be available from the 22nd of June.
It’s called fidelity FX super-resolution all Fs offers short and increases performance by upscaling its open source and will work on Nvidia GPU, AMD says more than 10 games will integrate FSR in 2021.
Now let’s check out how well this AMD Radeon RX 6800M laptop performs. In some games that I regularly test.
It’s worth noting that the display of the Asus Strix G15 connects to the integrated graphics rather than directly to the AMD Radeon RX 6800M.
So, I would expect better performance with an external screen compared to what I’m about to share.
I also noticed that the memory appears to be the same as the nerves are Legion 5 prior, it is possible to easily boost performance by 10% at 1080P using memory with foster timings, so that may be holding back the AMD Radeon RX 6800M.
In these examples, battlefield five was tested in campaign mode at the highest ultra-setting price on the average FPS is doing better than a full-powered RTX 2070.
Super in the Asus Scar 15 just below it, and it’s just slightly behind the RTX 3070 and the HP Omen 15 just above it.
Granted, The Omen doesn’t have the full GPU power limit the Asus Strix G15 doesn’t look too bad in the averages, but the 1% lows are a fair bit lower compared to Nvidia alternatives.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the game’s benchmark at max settings and the Asus Strix G15 is in the same position out of this same selection of laptops the results aren’t crazy or anything but above 100 FPS at max settings is still a nice result in this test and the AMD Radeon RX 6800M is around 48% ahead of the 5600M from the last generation.
This test tends to favor Intel processors but even others with Ryzen 5000, like the HP Omen 15 which was only just above the Strix G15 in the last few games is now about 10% ahead in average FPS the AMD Radeon RX 6800M is closer to 1660 ti options here.
Now I will be testing the G15 with an external screen to find out what the differences are.
It’s also possible that it might do better at the higher 1440P resolution as the GPU can better stretch its legs there.
I’ve just tested 10 ADP here because that’s what I have done before.
And also, because I was sent the model with a 10 ADP screen rather than the 1440 p screen outside of laptops.
I’ve also got some news and three based GPUs coming later in the year the eight-core Ryzen 5700G and six-core Ryzen 5600G.
We’ve already seen how well zone three processors do so it’ll be interesting to see how these new AP US stuck up once available from August 5, especially with all the GPU availability issues.
So there have been plenty of new announcements from AMD at Computex 2021, why not you can check out one of these blogs.
