From halcyon days playing Sonic 2 on the Megadrive, to trying to work out how to make the 'TOASTY!' man appear on Mortal Kombat 3, many of Aaron’s fondest childhood memories are associated with gaming. He regrets nothing. First getting into PC gaming through exposure to Drug Lord 2.0 and then the original Half Life, he has been a fiend ever since.

Twitter leaker _rogame has discovered two entries in the 3DMark database which may be leaked RX 6700M benchmarks, though in this case, identifying them as such is not completely straightforward.
Do We Know The Results Are For A Radeon RX 6700M?
The entries in question on the 3DMark database are listed as being for a Radeon RX 6700 XT (i.e. a desktop GPU), but the fact the results were produced using an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU (a laptop-only processor) indicates that it must be a laptop graphics card.
The 10,240 MB (i.e. 10GB) VRAM of the card also points towards it being an RX 6700M, as the RX 6600M comes with 8GB and the more powerful RX 6800M has 12GB of VRAM.
The specifications of the card and the result details can be seen in the gallery above. We know that the card uses the Navi 22 GPU, comes equipped with 2304 stream processors, has a memory bus of 160 bits, and a TGP of 135W (the same TGP as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070).
The GPU achieved a score of 8628 points in Time Spy and 27062 points in Fire Strike. The average clock speed during these tests ranged between 1945 and 1987 MHz.
Performance Comparison - AMD Radeon RX 6700M vs RTX 3060 vs RTX 3070
Above you can see the comparative performance of the graphics card (which we assume to be the AMD Radeon RX 6700M) against that of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060. These have been put together by _rogame themselves and were apparently also tested using Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, although we cannot confirm whether they were tested with the same specific AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU as the RX 6700M was, so they can’t be assumed to show exact like-for-like performance.
The graphs show that the RX 6700M performs slightly better than the RTX 3070 in the Fire Strike test, and substantially better than the RTX 3060. In the Time Spy test however the RX 6700M slightly underperforms the RTX 3060, and is beaten by the RTX 3070 by a significant margin.
How these results translate to FPS performance in gameplay remains to be seen – as soon as we can get our hands on one of these laptop GPUs rest assured we will be conducting our own thorough testing.
When Will The AMD Radeon RX 6700M Be Released?
Although we don’t have an official release date for the AMD Radeon RX 6700M, these benchmarks, assuming they are definitely for this graphics card, indicate we can expect to see it in the relatively near future. Our best guess would be sometime within the next quarter.
As for the rest of the AMD Radeon RX 6000M series: the RX 6800M is currently available in laptops, though we have yet to see any releases with the Radeon RX 6600M equipped.
