AMD used its CES 2023 press conference to detail the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs and to announce that Radeon 7000 GPUs are coming to laptops.
AMD unveiled four new Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards – the RX 7600M XT, RX 7600M, RX 7700S, and RX 7600S – S for efficiency, M for performance (the same nomenclature as on the RX 6000 series). These cards will directly rival Nvidia’s RXT 3060 laptop GPUs so expect more powerful Radeon 7000 GPUs later on in 2023.
The Radeon 7000 series laptop GPUs all have 8GB GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit memory interface. All four cards are based on the RDNA 3 architecture, but built on the TSMC’s 6nm process, instead of the newer 5nm one.
The RX 7600M XT is the most powerful new mobile GPU in the series and can use up to 120 watts of power. AMD says its 8GB mobile GPU beats the 12GB Nvidia desktop RTX 3060 in Hitman 3 with 184fps to the 3060’s 160fps.
AMD continues that the RX 7700S can reach 87fps in Cyberpunk 2077 and 147sfps in Death Stranding at maxed-out 1080p graphics.
AMD is developing a new DLSS upscale, called Smart Shift RSR, which will reportedly be “decoupled from the GPU”. It’s expected to add more performance sometime in the first half of 2023.
Expect to see the Radeon 7000 series graphics in laptops from February. It will be in the AMD Advantage editions of the Alienware M16 and M18, and Asus’ TUF Gaming A16.
