The well-known dataminer APISAK has shared an intriguing snippet of information that will please AMD fans hoping for an all AMD gaming laptop along the lines of the Dell G5 15 SE Gaming notebook but with refreshed CPU/GPU parts. However, there is something of a surprise with the apparent choice of Ryzen 5000 processor that features in this particular benchmark – but we will move on to that in due course. First up is the revelation of the AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPU, which will be a member of the mobile range of SKUs from the Radeon RX 6000 series.
It’s believed the Radeon RX 6600M will be based on RDNA 2 microarchitecture and will be targeted at those who want a midrange GPU in their laptop. Expected specs include 28 compute units (1,792 cores) and a range of TDPs from 50 W to 100 W. Interestingly, the RX 6600M is paired off with a Ryzen 5000 CPU in the slither of a screenshot that is clearly taken from an Ashes of the Singularity test run, which immediately indicates a potent Zen 3/RDNA 2 all AMD gaming laptop is being benchmarked that could soon be unleashed onto an expectant market. But this is not the Ryzen 5 5600U on show or the Ryzen 7 5800U onboard here…it’s a Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U.
The AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U has already cropped up a couple of times before: Once in connection with an HP EliteBook 845 G8 laptop and another time associated with a Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 notebook. Both of those devices feature Zen 3 central processing might, but they are also business machines that will generally leave graphics processing to the APU’s capable iGPU. So apparently, what we have here is either a sort of all AMD hybrid laptop that offers a business-oriented Ryzen 5000 processor and a gaming-handy RX6600M for the best of both worlds or a fake leak or benchmark misreading. Hopefully, it will be the former possibility.
