AMD Radeon RX 6600S vs AMD Radeon RX 6650M vs AMD Radeon RX 6800S

AMD Radeon RX 6600S

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon RX 6600S

The AMD Radeon RX 6600S is a mobile mid-range graphics card based on the Navi 23 chip (RDNA 2  architecture) manufactured in the modern 7nm process. It features 1,792 cores (28 CUs - compute units) and 8 GB of fast GDDR6 graphics memory connected with a 128 Bit memory bus. The chip also includes 32 MB Infinity Cache. The RAdeon RX 6600S is the power saving variant of the RX 6600M with reduced core speed of 1.88 GHz versus 2.2 GHz. 

AMD compares the gaming performance to a low power RTX 3060 for laptops (80W, former known as Max-Q). When Raytracing effects are activated, it falls behind the GeForce GPUs.

The Navi 21 chip is manufactured at TSMC in the modern 7nm process. Thanks to the reduced TDP of up to 80W, the RX 6600S is well suited for thin gaming laptops.

AMD Radeon RX 6650M

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon RX 6650M

The AMD Radeon RX 6650M is a mobile mid-range graphics card based on the Navi 23 chip (RDNA 2  architecture) manufactured in the modern 7nm process. It features 1,792 cores (28 CUs - compute units) and 8 GB of fast GDDR6 graphics memory connected with a 128 Bit memory bus. The chip also includes 32 MB Infinity Cache. The clock speed of the cores will depend on the laptop according to AMD. The specified game clock speed is 2222 MHz and therefore only slightly more than the RX 6600M. The power consumption (TDP settings) ranges from 100 - 120 Watt (similar to Nvidia).

AMD compares the performance to the RTX 3060 for laptops and similar to the RX 6600M. When Raytracing effects are activated, it falls behind the GeForce GPUs.

The Navi 21 chip is manufactured at TSMC in the modern 7nm process.

AMD Radeon RX 6800S

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon RX 6800S

The AMD Radeon RX 6800S is a mobile high-end graphics card for gaming laptops. It uses the Navi 23 chip based on the new RDNA 2 architecture. It uses all 2,048 shaders (= 32 CUs), 128 TMUs, and 64 ROPs and therefore is similar to the desktop Radeon RX 6700 XT. The 128 Bit memory system connects 8 GB GDDR6 with 2 GHz memory clock. Furthermore, the RX6800S includes 32 MB Infinity Cache. The RX 6800S is the power saving variant of the RX 6800M and features slower clock speeds and a lower TDP.

Due to the lower clock speed, the performance should be lower than the RX 6800M. AMD specified the performance between the low power variants of the RTX 3070 (80-100W) and RTX 3080 (80-100W, former Max-Q).

The Navi 22 chip is manufactured at TSMC in the modern 7nm process. Thanks to the reduced TDP, the 6800S is suited for thin gaming laptops.
