There are some new leaked benchmarks for the AMD Radeon 780M RDNA 3 iGPU that look really impressive when compared to other mainstream graphics cards. These benchmarks specifically focus on how well the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS processor with its RDNA 3 iGPU performs. This processor is part of the Phoenix “Ryzen 7040” lineup and has 8 cores, 16 threads, and 16 MB of L3 cache (plus an additional 8 MB of L2 cache). It runs at a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz and can boost up to 5.1 GHz, and its TDP is rated at 35-54W. But the most exciting part of this chip is definitely the Radeon 780M iGPU, which has 12 compute units, 768 cores, and a graphics frequency of 2700 MHz.
Someone tested the AMD Radeon 780M RDNA 3 iGPU using the Geekbench OpenCL benchmark on a laptop made by a Chinese brand. The laptop was set to the balanced profile mode and had 32 GB of memory. The iGPU got a score of 36,757 points.
Even though it’s an entry-level component, the AMD RDNA 3 iGPU is really impressive because it can compete with popular GPUs like the GTX 1650 and RX 480 that many gamers still use today. And the best part is that it uses just a fraction of the power those other GPUs do.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about this leak, like what kind of memory was being used and what the power profile was like. But with a better laptop, we might even see an OpenCL score of over 40,000, which would be even more impressive. Plus, AMD hasn’t even released the latest drivers that are optimized for the integrated GPU yet, so there’s a good chance that we’ll see even better performance once those are available.
Because the AMD RDNA 3 iGPU has a lower TDP, it means that laptops using it will be able to run really efficiently, which should result in affordable pricing. And because most of these laptops won’t need a separate graphics card (since the iGPU is already powerful enough), they would be perfect for students and businesses who just need a reliable machine that can handle their work and also have a long battery life.
