According to Greymon55, AMD's Ryzen 7000 APUs may boast integrated graphics that rival the performance of a discrete Nvidia RTX3060 GPU. New 'Phoenix" chips from the company will include RDNA 3 GPU cores in notebook-style devices. This will allow them to offer gaming performance comparable to current-generation gaming laptops.
Greymon55 claims that the 'Phoenix Ryzen 7000 APU equals an RTX3060 with a 60W TDP - the type of dedicated graphics card you would find in a gaming laptop under $2,000. Although the insider does not specifically compare AMD's next-gen chip with Nvidia’s power-limited 'Max Q' GPU, it is still impressive, particularly since AMD's APU will have to split power between graphics and processing cores.
The Ryzen 7000 APU's next-generation Ryzen 7000 APU is not only superior to Nvidia’s entry-level card but also offers improved integrated graphics solutions. The company's single-chip chips are currently comparable to a GTX 1650 for gaming performance. The new 'Phoenix" chip's higher specs will theoretically bring RTX performance to smaller devices like the Steam Deck 2.
We'll have to wait until Ryzen 7000 APU benchmarks are available before we can make any judgments. So, take these insider insights with a grain of salt. The chip's apparent ability to balance power and performance is remarkable, particularly since Nvidia's RTX 4000 appears to eat PSUs for breakfast.
Ryzen 7000: What do we know about AMD Zen 4 CPUs?
When it comes to the best gaming CPUs, we would normally compare AMD to Intel's processors. But Arc Alchemist's graphics cards may be in their corner. The GTX 1650 is the first discrete GPU to hit the market. This means that the blue team's dedicated laptop card will need to learn a few tricks in order to keep up with Phoenix.
