CES 2023 | AMD brings RDNA 3 to laptops with the Radeon RX 7600M XT, Radeon RX 7600M, Radeon RX 7600S and Radeon RX 7700S
AMD's Zen 4 X3D processors were undoubtedly the highlight of its CES 2023 presentation. However, the company had a lot more in store for PC hardware enthusiasts, such as the mobile variants of its RDNA 3 GPUs. However, only a part of the lineup has been revealed . The remaining models will likely be demonstrated at Computex later this year. Laptops running the aforementioned GPUs will be available in the coming weeks.
Starting with the Radeon RX 7600M XT, one gets 8 GB of 18 Gbps VRAM on a 128-bit bus, 32 CUs (2,048 stream processors), a boost clock of 2.3 GHz, 32 MB of Infinity Cache, a mag TGP of 120 Watts and support for AV1 encode/decode. Nvidia claims it is up to 31% faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 at 1080p gaming. The Radeon RX 7600M has the same amount of VRAM but uses slower 16 Gbps modules. It also lowers the CU count to 28 and the max TGP to 90 Watts.
The Radeon RX 7700S and Radeon RX 7600S also feature 8 GB of VRAM with 18 Gbps and 16 Gbps modules on a 128-bit bus, respectively. The former has 32 CUs, and the latter 28. Similarly, their max TGPs are set at 100 Watts and 90 Watts. They are unlikely to trade blows with similarly-specced Ampere chips, let alone Ada Lovelace. Nonetheless, they should be relatively more affordable due to them being manufactured on TSMC's 6 nm node and using an entry-level Navi 33 GPU.
