MSI Delta 15: AMD takes the gloves off with the Radeon RX 6700M
Anyone looking for a powerful gaming laptop in 2021 would inevitably have to buy a device with an Nvidia GPU up until now. The GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 Ampere chips were the gold standard. With the release of the two Radeon GPUs, the RX 6800M and the RX 6700M, the field has now been properly shaken up. The latter GPU powers the brand-new MSI Delta 15, for example, which we recently subjected to a comprehensive test.
The result: The Radeon RX 6700M is overall roughly on par with the RTX 3070, and it's even powerful enough to take on the RTX 3080 in some cases. The main highlight of the AMD chip is the ample video memory. While the RTX 3070 has to make do with 8 GB, the RX 6700M offers a whole 10 GB, which can already be worthwhile for some games (at least in higher resolutions or quality levels).
On the other hand, there's still some catching up to do in terms of ray tracing performance. AMD currently still has a hard time against the competition in this area. However, the RX 6700M is an ideal gaming companion for users who don't care too much about ray tracing.
