The chip developer confirms its promises from the past and claims to bring the architecture of theRDNA 2 also to the mobile market even before the end of the first half of 2021
The global shortage of chips of almost all types and species did not miss it naturally either, but society AMD Still managed to prove to us that its RDNA 2 architecture and the cores of theships 20 based on it allows it to provide competition in the top of the world of graphics processing - also in the world of home desktop video cards and of course in the world of consoles (where it is the star that controls the two new systems from Sony and Microsoft).
Now it remains to be seen whether the Red Camp will be able to make a comeback in the world of mobile video cards in the new era as well - and we are happy to see that we will soon have the answers to this question.
Company CEO Lisa Sue announced at a meeting with investors that the company has experienced a significant increase in revenue from the field of video cards thanks to the launch of the generationRadeon RX 6000 in the last months of 2020, and expects further increases in double-digit percentages in the coming quarters - both due to the expansion of the scope of production of the relevant chips and due to the planned launch of computers Mobile First with RDNA 2 already later in the current quarter.
This announcement corresponds with previous promises of AMD, So that throughout the network it is clear to everyone that the intention is to launch dedicated mobile video cards from the series Radeon RX 6000 and not for the launch of mobile processors with built-in RDNA 2 cores (this is also in the planning as mentioned - but only for next year probably) - and according to the relatively little information we have on the subject from various technical leaks it seems that the flagship products in the category will contain the same Navi 22 core. In the modelsRadeon The RX 6700 XT desktop, with up to 2,560 activity processing units inside.
Reviews for the RX 6700 XT at its launch Show us a performance similar to that of the GeForce RTX 3070's models NVIDIA, When this level of performance is similar to what some of the green camp's GeForce RTX 3080 models can provide us with - and although it's natural to assume that the intended RX 6800M and RX 6700M models will not enjoy the same high frequency of the desktop edition, there is reason to hope For the generation of mobile cards intended fromAMD Will finally provide fair competition for products GeForce In the category not only at the intermediate and lower levels but also at the high levels of performance (and prices), which are currently populated by theRTX 3080 andRTX 3070 mobile as stated.
AMD has great technological potential, no doubt about it, but in order to regain a proper position in the mobile graphics market, it will also need the support of the computer manufacturers who choose to use its products at the expense of those of the competitor. NVIDIA - We have seen this happen gradually in the field of general purpose processors with more and more models that make the transition from Intel products only to integration between Intel processors and processors AMD, But so far we have not seen too many indications that there is a mass of RDNA 2-based models Mobile Which are in advanced stages of preparation on the way to launch. We will continue to follow diligently and update!
