AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT graphics card spotted on the Ashes of the Singularity database
The RDNA2 iGPUs featured on the Ryzen 6000 series Rembrandt processors have shown up big time, managing to trade blows with some dGPUs. On the other hand, not much is known about the RDNA2-based dGPUs AMD unveiled at CES 2022, such as the Radeon RX 6650M, RX 6650M XT and the RX 6850M XT. Now, a laptop featuring an AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT has appeared online in the Ashes of The Singularity benchmark database.
For some reason, the AoTS database incorrectly labels the graphics card as the AMD Radeon RX 6850M. However, it is, without doubt, the AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT, as AMD never announced its non-XT variant. The graphics card is paired with a high-end Intel Alder Lake Core i9-12900H processor. As far as the actual benchmark is concerned, the RDNA 2-based GPU scores 10,800 points and can output 109 frames per second at the "Min 1080p" preset. The performance is similar to that of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, which, when tested with the same CPU/preset, scores 11,000/111 FPS.
Then again, Ashes of the Singularity isn't one of the most graphically demanding games out there, meaning that it cannot manage to push the AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT to its limits. Some of its key specs include 40 CUs (compute units), 64 ROPs, 2,560 Steam Multiprocessors (SMs), a boost clock of 2,463 MHz, 12 GB of 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit bus and a TGP of up to 165 W. Based on that alone, it should sit somewhere between the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 Ti, but only time will tell how it fares in the real world.
