Things are starting to get interesting, as AMD’s portfolio of real-world graphics chips is also expected to grow again soon. During the digital Computex 2021 AMD already presented its new lineup of mobile graphics cards based on the current Navi GPUs. The three graphics cards announced there were the Radeon RX 6800M as the top dog, the RX 6700M for the ambitious user, and the RX 6600M as the entry-level model. So far, however, only the Radeon RX 6800M has been integrated into currently available laptops, but that’s likely to change soon if the latest Radeon RX 6700M leak is to be believed.
In its latest leak, _rogame has spotted two entries of an AMD Radeon RX 6700M in the 3DMark database. Interestingly, the card even appears in the database as Radeon RX 6700 XT, but it is certainly not a conventional desktop model. This Radeon RX 6700M with 10GB of memory expansion is paired with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, once again confirming that it needs to be in a laptop.

The card was able to achieve a score of 8628 points (graphic score) in Time Spy and 27062 points (graphic score) in Fire Strike. The average clock rate of the GPU was between 1945 and 1987 MHz according to the entry.
The post on Twitter also includes hypothetical charts comparing the performance of the AMD Radeon RX 6700M to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 and 3070. These comparisons were made with current laptops that also use AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors. In Fire Strike, the Radeon RX 6700M outperforms the GeForce RTX 3070 by a razor-thin margin in raster graphics, and then even beats the RTX 3060 with a gesture of nonchalance. In Time Spy, however, the Radeon RX 6700M is slightly edged out by the RTX 3060, which also means that the RTX 3070 beats the Radeon RX 6700M by a larger margin.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700M relies on the well-known Navi 22 GPU, which has 2304 stream processors. On top of that, there’s 10GB of GDDR6 memory hanging out on a 160-bus. The card’s TGP is 135 watts, which is in line with NVIDIA’s counterpart, the RTX 3070, but doesn’t include the board’s other losses like NVIDIA does (only GPU and memory are considered here). The AMD Radeon RX 6700M doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it won’t really be long if laptop OEMs are to be believed.
