Powerful all-AMD gaming laptops are on the horizon

Excitement for the launch of the AMD RX 6000 mobile series has been rife since they were announced back in March, alongside the launch of the AMD Radeon 6700 XT graphics card, with a few scattered benchmarks leaking since then to further fan the flames.

Thanks to some new information posted by established leaker @TUM_APISAK, a new CPU-Z validation suggests that Asus is developing an all-AMD version of the beloved ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop that will feature a Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU and Radeon RX 6800M GPU.

Previous rumors had been circling that suggested the mobile AMD Radeon offerings would be fairly beastly, and new information provided by APISAK suggests the RX 6800M will come with 12GB of VRAM on a 192-bit bus.

Interestingly, this doesn’t seem to be a slimmed-down GPU either, with 40 compute units (CUs) suggesting you’re getting the full power of Navi 22. The Nvidia mobile GPUs don’t perform as well as their desktop namesakes, so an RTX 3070 mobile won’t be kicking out the same performance or power as the desktop RTX 3070 card.

This isn’t to say the unreleased AMD Radeon mobile cards will be running at the same levels as the desktop variants, but the idea of a full-fat Navi 22 GPU inside a laptop is certainly an exciting prospect. As will all leaks and unofficial information, don’t take any of this as gospel until we hear it directly from the mouth of Team Red.
