AMD’s new Radeon RX 6800M delivers respectable performance at a respectable price

AMD has declared its Radeon RX 6000 arrangement of versatile GPUs. The organization asserted that the new chips, based on its RDNA 2 design, convey the best presentation we've at any point seen from

AMD illustrations. It made especially yearning claims about its lead Radeon RX 6800M, which it guaranteed would run present-day AAA games at outline rates similar to or better than those of Nvidia's portable RTX 3080. 

Organization claims are simply organization claims, obviously. I've been trying a framework with a Radeon RX 6800M for as long as a couple of days. The outcomes I've seen so far are a mishmash and keeping in mind that the RX 6800M doesn't conclusively beat Nvidia's top RTX chips, it's making a preferred showing over what I'd expect at the value range we've been given. 

To perceive how the RX 6800M performed, I was sent an Asus ROG Strix G15, one of the primary PCs declared that will incorporate the new GPU. My test framework incorporates an eight-center AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and 16GB of RAM. I'll distribute a full audit of this gadget when Asus finishes the cost of this form, which it hasn't as of this composition. (The Strix G15 is required to cost somewhere in the range of $1,549 and $1,699, contingent upon setup.) In the interim, here are my benchmark results to give you a thought of the edge rates you can anticipate from this chip on a couple of various games. 

I'll begin by discussing what intrigued me most about this chip: on-battery gaming. I just got an hour of gaming out of one charge, which is a genuinely short life expectancy. In any case, this framework conveyed the best on-battery gaming experience I've at any point seen. I'm accustomed to seeing unplugged gaming rigs move ahead around 20fps (if that), drop into faltering y region 30-40 minutes in, and become unplayable with around 10% battery remaining. The unplugged Strix G15 ran Red 

Dead Redemption 2 consistently somewhere in the range of 30fps and 40fps for practically the whole hour, dropping to the high 20s around 12%. The game never at any point faltered. In spite of the Strix G15's short endurance, I'd in any case prescribe it to individuals who need to game on the battery over some more extended enduring models because of the enormous measure of really playable time you get. 

Yet, there were a few games where the Strix G15 didn't blow me away (when it was connected). I ran CS: GO with all settings maxed and found the middle value of 252fps. That implies the 6800M can absolutely exploit a 300Hz screen on some lighter charge like this. (Games were tried at local goal, with all sliders maximized.) 

The outcome is entirely near that of the 2020 Zephyrus G14 (216fps in our testing), which triumphed when it's all said and done a last-gen RTX 2060 Max-Q, and very near what we saw from a year ago's Strix Scar 15 (248fps), which had an RTX 2070 Super. The Zephyrus G15 with an 80W RTX 3070 found the middle value of 178fps running the title in QHD — I would want to see a greater hole since the Strix G15 has recently a 1080p presentation. 

The Strix G15 arrived at the midpoint of 87fps on Horizon Zero Dawn, which scarcely beats the Zephyrus G15 with a 100W RTX 3080 and sufficiently beats the TUF Dash F15 with an 85W RTX 3070, yet doesn't beat the 130W RTX 3070 MSI GP66 Leopard (which found the middle value of 96fps). The RX 6800M likewise did a fine, yet not amazing, position with beam following. It found the middle value of 69fps on Shadow of the Tomb Raider with beam following on ultra, which is playable yet more terrible than we'd anticipate from both the GP66 and the G15. 

The one special case here was Red Dead Redemption II — for reasons unknown, the RX 6800M is incredible at that game. It found the middle value of 77fps, which beats each framework referenced here, including the GP66 (which arrived at the midpoint of 75fps). The 6800M likewise obviously has a lot of crude force, regardless of whether it doesn't mean each game: it additionally beat these frameworks on the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark. 

Given these outcomes, the standpoint for this card appears to be acceptable. It's performing more awful than we'd anticipate from (or equivalently to, on account of Red Dead) a correspondingly timed RTX 3070, yet it is for the most part beating assumptions for a lower-timed RTX 3070 framework. Valuing will unquestionably fluctuate by producer and model, 

However, the G15's relied upon the cost of $1,549.99 to $1,699.99 is more reasonable than we regularly see for a PC with this sort of execution. The Strix G15 with an RTX 3070 is $100 more, which makes this AMD GPU look like a serious decent arrangement in correlation. These are simply early benchmarks, obviously, so it stays not yet clear whether driver and similarity give spring up down the line. Be that as it may, up until now, the RX 6800M seems to be a contender, which isn't something AMD has had in the versatile GPU front in quite a while.
