AMD’s Radeon RX 5600M GPUs are expected to be paired alongside the Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” notebooks, bringing the fight to NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 and 1660 Ti mobile graphics chips. Although we haven’t been able to test the 5500M or 5600M just yet, we do have a few benchmark scores on hand. The results are quite encouraging, with the RX 5600M beating both the GeForce GTX 1650 as well as the 1660 Ti by a sound margin, and leveling with the RTX 2060 (mobility):
Paired with the octa-core Ryzen 7 4800H, the Radeon RX 5600M scores a healthy 24,218 points in the 3DMark11 graphics test, just ahead of the NVIDIA RTX 2060 which nets 23,583 points. The GTX 1660 Ti lags behind with just 22,995 points. There are certain notebooks that feature the full desktop-grade RTX 2060, a good example being the Clevo XMG 15. This higher-clocked variant scores 25,863 points, edging past the 5600M. However, keep in mind that you won’t be seeing this model in many notebooks, so for all practical purposes, the mobile Navi processor will be on par if faster than the RTX 2060 mobility graphics.
There seems to be a questionable deal in place between OEMs and NVIDIA/Intel. Most of the higher-end GeForce RTX cards (including the new Supers) seem to be limited to the 10th Gen Comet Lake-H (45W) laptops for the time being. The highest-end GPU we’ve yet seen with a Renoir notebook is the RTX 2060, with some manufacturers like Acer even limiting AMD’s new laptops to just the GTX 1660 Ti. While we can’t confirm whether Intel or NVIDIA is at fault here, it’s certainly suspicious.
