AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT

AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT

The AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT is a mobile high-end graphics card for gaming laptops. It uses the Navi 22 chip based on the new RDNA 2 architecture. It uses all 2,560 shaders (= 40 CUs), 160 TMUs, and 64 ROPs and therefore is similar to the desktop Radeon RX 6700 XT. The 192 Bit memory system connects 12 GB GDDR6 with 18 Gbps memory speed. Furthermore, the RX6850MXT includes 96 MB Infinity Cache. AMD specified 2.463 GHz game clock for 13.3 TFLOPS theoretical performance (SP) at a TDP of 135-165 Watt. The difference to the previous RX 6800M is the slightly increased clock speed of the CPU and GPU.

The gaming performance of the RX 6850M XT should be slightly faster than the old RX 6800M which positioned itself between a RTX 3070 and 3080 for laptops. For 

The Navi 22 chip is manufactured at TSMC in the modern 7nm process.
