Tipster outs 3DMark Time Spy score for upcoming AMD Rembrandt 6000 series APUs: new iGPUs could offer near GeForce GTX 970 performance
Tipster @9550Pro recently tweeted what appears to be a 3DMark Time Spy score for an unspecified AMD Rembrandt APU. The purported 6000G series part scored 2700 in the test. If this score proves accurate, it could mean Rembrandt will deliver unprecedented levels of iGPU graphics performance.
The GeForce GTX 1650, an entry-level desktop card from 2019, scores in the 2800-3000 range and delivers similar performance to the Maxwell-era GeForce GTX 970. This means that high-end Rembrandt APUs could deliver enough performance to easily handle 1080p/60 FPS gaming with high graphics settings.
The current-gen AMD Ryzen 5700G features an RX Vega 8 iGPU clocked at 2.0 GHz, delivering performance on par with the PlayStation 4. If @9550Pro's tip proves accurate, we could be looking at a 2x increase to raw iGPU performance with Rembrandt. The RX Vega 8 does reasonably well in eSports and indie titles, but really struggles in demanding AAA games. Cyberpunk 2077, for instance, runs at roughly 20 FPS on the older iGPU.
With GPU prices remaining extremely high on account of the silicon shortage and crypto mining demand, Rembrandt could turn into a solid choice for gamers. When weaker cards like the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti are selling for upwards of US$400, a US$350-400 Rembrandt APU would offer remarkable value.
