An official event from AMD will take place tonight, in which the company will unveil new APUs and GPUs for laptops. We have already written about the Ryzen 6000 APU, in this news – about 3D accelerators. Eight of them are promised at once! Apparently, AMD decided to take seriously the segment of mobile graphics, where Nvidia now reigns supreme.
The rumor that the mobile lineup will be headed by the Radeon RX 6850 XT, was confirmed. However, this 3D accelerator will not be released alone, but in a company with the Radeon RX 6650 XT and Radeon RX 6650M. They are all based on 7nm GPUs. The Radeon RX 6850 XT has 40 execution units and 12GB of 18GHz GDDR6 memory. The other two models each have 8 GB of 16 GHz GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit bus, and the difference is in the number of GPU execution units and frequency: the Radeon RX 6650 XT has 32 and 2162 MHz, respectively, the Radeon RX 6650M has 28 and 2222 MHz.
The next innovations are the Radeon RX 6500M and 6300M based on a 6nm Navi 24 GPU with 16 and 12 compute units and 4 and 2 GB of GDDR6 memory, respectively.
Finally, three more new items are the Radeon RX 6000S series models. They can be called variants of the main line of 3D-accelerators, but with reduced power consumption. Such a peculiar variant of Max-Q video cards, to use Nvidia’s terminology. True, while Nvidia 3D cards have the same configurations for regular versions and Max-Q versions, AMD’s characteristics differ.
