The webpage Zhihu has published the initial results of an independent performance test of the AMD Radeon RX 6700M. The GPU was housed in an MSI Delta 15 laptop and was paired with the AMD Ryzen 5000H series CPUs exclusively. Do note that the Delta 15 supports AMD SmartShift technology, which allows unused power to be directed from CPU to GPU or vice versa.
The test card is based on a cut-down Navi 22 GPU with 2304 Stream Processors. A 10GB GDDR6 RAM operating is provided, which operates at a 160-bit bus. The GPU boasts a unique configuration which the Navi22’s desktop variants also lack.
Initially, a 3DMark Time Spy synthetic benchmark was conducted to compare the old unspecified driver version, and the first officially supported Adrenalin 21.7.2. A 6% performance difference was observed between the two drivers with 9282 points and 9837 points for old and 21.7.2 drivers, respectively.
AMD has designed the card for gaming from 1080p to up to 1440p. The 10GB GDDR6 RAM is enough to store high-fidelity textures.
The card shows an average of 109.1% of the performance of the 3070 Laptop GPU in Max-Q settings (80W). The important thing is that the tested SKU is offered in three TGPs of 80W, 110W, and 135W. Unfortunately, neither the tester nor MSI has provided clear information about the installed variant in Delta 15. However, the test author believes that it is not the 135W variant as the GPU power maxes out 115W, including SmartShift. This suggests it should be a 110W version.
Another approach to the test result is that Radeon RX 6700M 110W is 9.1% faster than GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU 80W. Indeed, a higher TGP is the main factor behind why the AMD card is faster. Irrespective of that, these are the first tests to be shared, and a detailed comparison including the same TGP variants will arrive soon.
Do note that Delta 15’s official page also offers a preview of RX6700M gaming performance, but the data is not compared to any other known MSI laptop.
