With dozens of different models whose existence has been revealed online in recent days, it is hard to argue with the statement that the launch of a generation of fresh portable processors from home AMD Is within touching distance - but could it be that the red chip developer is preparing us for another surprise with the announcement of models RDNA 2 new for laptops? The evidence for this is less unequivocal, but there are those who state that this too is going to happen in a short time and even volunteer to provide initial details.
According to information from Twitter leak Patrick Schur and the popular website igorslab.de, inAMD It is planned to offer at least three different core configurations as part of the RX 6000 mobile generation, with Navi 22 being the most advanced option with up to 2,560 active RDNA 2 units and a 192-bit memory controller that will allow 6GB or 12GB of GDDR6 memory to connect to them. The power envelope for these models, which will most likely replace the modelsRadeon The rare RX 5700M will be customizable according to PC makers' preferences - between 90 watts at the low end and 146 watts at the high end, with real potential to provide competition for the modelsGeForce RTX 3070 future mobiles as such will be powered under cost-effective Max-Q settings.
Navi 23 will be the intermediate model that may get the brand name Radeon RX 6600M, with up to 2,048 RDNA units 2 activity and interface memory 6-bit GDDR128 that will allow integration with volume memory Of 4GB or 8GB - under three different values for the power envelope between 65 watts and 90 watts.
Navi 24 will be a code name for the most basic models in the family, it seems, with a power envelope of only 25 watts to 50 watts at the top end which can also be used in the series Radeon RX 6500M and also more basic series depending on the possible operating frequency. The maximum amount of processing units in these models is not yet completely clear (can you expect 1,536 RDNA 2 units inside?), With the graphics memory controller supposed to be in 128 bit configuration here too, with 4GB of memory GDDR6 And maybe even 8GB if the company decides to translate their liberalism and generosity from the fixed market.
At the moment there is no concrete evidence that AMD has any plans to compete with NVIDIA Directly on the performance crown of the mobile market, but even these mid-range models are expected to represent an improvement of tens and even hundreds of percent in capabilities compared to all Core Built-in graphics, especially when all indications are that we will not see an improvement in the architecture or the number of units available in the generationRYZEN 5000 so that a performance that is familiar to us today from theRYZEN 4000 will not be very far from the new data on the way.
The main challenge of AMD, Mainly in the computer graphics processing category Mobile, Has so far been available and effective collaborations with the major players in the field - if this is something that will change in 2021 we should have an improved and definitely interesting competition.
