Budget discrete graphics cards are no longer needed in laptops? Radeon 780M iGPU Test Results Released
Among the Ryzen 7000 mobile processors, there are models with the latest iGPU based on the RDNA 3 architecture. And today, the first tests of such a solution have appeared on the Web.
The integrated graphics core Radeon 780M as part of an unnamed APU in 3DMark Time Spy scores about 2750 points when used in conjunction with DDR5-5600 RAM and about 3000 points when using LPDDR5X-7500. And this is a lot.
By comparison, the Radeon 680M scores around 2390 points, meaning the new GPU is 15-26% faster depending on memory. In the second case, this is already close to the result of the discrete GeForce RTX 2050, not to mention slower and older adapters.
We’ll have to wait for the results in games, of course, but overall the data looks plausible as the Radeon 780M has the same 768 stream processors as the Radeon 680M, but the RDNA 2 architecture has changed to RDNA 3, and the GPU frequency has risen to incredible iGPU 2900 MHz.
