Several mobile news snippets from AMD! First up, the company has three new AMD Radeon RX 6000M laptop GPUs; the Radeon RX 6800M, Radeon RX 6700M, and Radeon RX 6600M. At the same time, AMD also rolled out AMD Advantage, sort of a new quality label for gaming laptops. AMD Advantage laptops will need to meet several requirements, like an AMD Ryzen 5000 seires CPU, AMD Radeon RX 6000M series video card, NVMe storage, 10+ hours battery life for video playback, and screen with 144Hz+ refresh rate and 300+ nits brightness. There will also be certain thermal requirements. The first laptops with the AMD Advantage label are expected later this month.

AMD RX 6000M series
Today at Computex 2021, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) introduced several powerful new solutions that take high-performance gaming to new levels. Designed to bring world-class performance, incredible visual fidelity and immersive experiences to gaming laptops, the new AMD Radeon™ RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics include the top-of-stack Radeon RX 6800M – the fastest AMD Radeon GPU for laptops, delivering desktop-class performance to power ultra-high frame rate 1440p gaming anywhere.

AMD also introduced the AMD Advantage™ Design Framework, the result of a multi-year collaboration between AMD and its global PC partners to deliver the next generation of premium, high-performance gaming laptops. Combining AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics, AMD Radeon Software and AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Mobile Processors with exclusive AMD smart technologies and other advanced system design characteristics, AMD Advantage systems are designed to deliver best-in-class gaming experiences. The first AMD Advantage laptops are expected to be available from leading OEMs beginning this month.

In addition, AMD unveiled AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), a cutting-edge spatial upscaling technology designed to boost framerates up to 2.5X in select titles at 4K resolution and deliver a high-quality, high-resolution gaming experience. More than 10 game developers plan to integrate FSR into their top titles and game engines in 2021, with the first games supporting FSR expected to be available later this month.

“There have been incredible advances in gaming over the last several years, with powerful technologies allowing desktop PCs to deliver high-octane, beautifully complex and immersive worlds like never before,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “Today we’re excited to bring the high-performance, energy-efficient AMD RDNA™ 2 architecture to next-generation laptops to unlock the same level of high-performance experiences and true-to-life visuals for mobile gamers. With AMD Advantage, gamers can be sure these next-gen laptops are designed, optimized and purpose-built for the best possible gaming experiences.”

AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics
AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series mobile graphics are built on breakthrough AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture, delivering up to 1.5X higher performance or up to 43 percent lower power at the same performance level compared to AMD RDNA architecture. They also bring advanced technologies such as AMD Infinity Cache and DirectX® Raytracing (DXR) to next-gen laptops.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPU is a graphics powerhouse, offering world-class 1440p/120 FPS performance with a powerful blend of raytracing, compute and traditional effects for true-to-life visuals. The AMD Radeon RX 6700M GPU offers 1440p/100FPS gaming performance, next-level visuals and efficiency designed for the new generation of advanced gaming and content creation laptops. The AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPU is designed to deliver high refresh rate 1080p/100FPS gaming for lightweight laptops. Radeon RX 6000M Series mobile graphics bring numerous game-changing features available to gamers on the go, including:

  • AMD Infinity Cache – Up to 96MB of last-level data cache integrated on the GPU die reduces latency and power consumption to deliver higher gaming performance than traditional architectural designs.
  • AMD Smart Access Memory – Unlocks higher performance for select AMD-powered laptops by providing AMD Ryzen processors with access to the entire high-speed AMD Radeon GDDR6 graphics memory.
  • AMD SmartShift Technology – Dynamically shifts laptop power between AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors and AMD Radeon Graphics, providing an additional increase in gaming performance.
  • AMD Radeon Chill – Power-saving feature that helps save battery by regulating frame rates based on in-game movements.
  • AMD FidelityFX – Supported by more than 45 titles, AMD FidelityFX is an open-source toolkit of visual enhancement effects for game developers available through AMD GPUOpen. It includes a robust collection of rasterized lighting, shadow and reflection effects, as well as the new AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology, that can be integrated into the latest games with minimal performance overhead.

    AMD Advantage Design Framework
    With the new AMD Advantage Design Framework, AMD and its global PC partners are redefining high-performance mobile gaming. AMD Advantage laptops combine AMD Radeon RX 6000M Series Mobile Graphics, AMD Radeon Software and AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors with exclusive AMD smart technologies, AMD FreeSync™ Premium-certified displays, fast NVME storage, optimal thermal designs, and other advanced system design characteristics.

    AMD Advantage laptops are designed to deliver best-in-class gaming experiences, providing new levels of performance and responsiveness. Enhancements from AMD SmartShift and AMD Smart Access Memory boost gaming performance on these systems. In addition, AMD Advantage laptops are optimized to deliver over 100FPS gaming in today’s most visually demanding titles, all-day battery-powered video playback (10+ hrs.), 144Hz+ high-refresh rate, vividly bright (300+ nits) displays, and custom-tuned thermals for cool operation during continuous gameplay – all packed into sleek laptop designs.

    Several AMD Advantage gaming laptops are expected to be available in 2021. The ROG Strix G15/17 AMD Advantage Edition gaming laptops, featuring AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPUs, AMD Ryzen 5900HX Mobile Processors and AMD smart technologies, are expected to be available beginning in early June at Best Buy and other leading retailers.
