AMD’s keynote at Computex 2021 focused heavily on gaming laptops, sales of which they stated had grown by 27% in 2020 compared to 2019.

The red team discussed the power efficiencies brought by their RDNA 2 architecture, key to ensuring solid performance in a laptop build, discussed the holistic improvements made to gaming laptops under their AMD Advantage design framework, and most importantly introduced their high-end mobile series of graphics cards: the 6000M series.

Below is a list of everything we currently know about each of these new laptop graphics cards from AMD.

AMD Radeon RX 6800M

Aimed squarely at Nvidia’s RTX 3080, AMD claims this card can deliver 120 FPS performance at 1440p on max settings.

AMD’s own benchmarking showed the 6800M matching or beating the FPS RTX 3080 in a small selection of games, though as ever these should be taken with an extremely large pinch of salt until third-party testers do their own benchmarking.

Even if third party testing shows AMD’s claims about the card’s performance vs the 3080 laptop version to be a stretch, you can expect laptops equipped with AMD’s offering to be a great deal cheaper. The ASUS ROG G513 Advantage Edition for instance, is up to $500 cheaper when equipped with the RX 6800M as opposed to the RTX 3080 – which is a massive difference. At current pricing, RX 6800M equipped laptops look to be even cheaper than RTX 3070 ones, which the RX 6800M should certainly be able to outperform.

AMD Radeon RX 6700M

Intended to take on the RTX 3070 laptop version (although we didn’t see any comparative benchmarking of this card against the competition), AMD claimed that the Radeon RX 6700M is capable of delivering 100 FPS gaming at 1440p on max settings.

AMD Radeon RX 6600M

A potential challenger to the Nvidia RTX 3060 laptop version, we again didn’t see any comparative benchmarks of this card during the keynote unfortunately, but AMD say that they expect the GPU to manage 100 FPS when gaming at max settings at 1080p.

Cores / Compute Units : 1792 / 28
Game Clock : 2177 MHz

Memory Bus : 128-bit

AMD Radeon Chill

All the above GPUs will be compatible with the new AMD Radeon software: Radeon Chill, which effectively means you can tweak your GPUs power usage by giving a targeted FPS performance cap, so maximizing the battery life of your laptop.

This and a whole raft of other features within AMD’s Advantage design framework aim to improve the power efficiency and general performance for gaming on an AMD laptop. Exciting times for laptop gamers indeed!
