Amongst a whole lot of technobabble about AI AI and more AI, AMD today announced the Radeon RX 7600 XT, Ryzen 8000G series and new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. For any normal consumer, their event was a hard boring watch with business people patting each-other on the back about AI advancements but here's the gist of what was actually revealed today.

Firstly of all they announced the Radeon RX 7600 XT GPU with 16GB GDDR6 for 1080p gaming, starting at $329 releasing January 24th. Nothing really special here, it's a slight bump over the RX 7600 with more RAM, slightly boosted clock speeds and a higher typical board power at 190 W.

Now onto the processors, starting with the new AMD Ryzen 8000G Series desktop processors for the AM5 platform, which bring forth AMD's new dedicated AI neural processing unit (NPU) to desktop PC processors, built on top of Zen 4. All of the 8000G Series processors include a Radeon 700M series graphics too.

Here's the models available starting January 31st for SI partners and for OEMs in "Q2 2024":

Model Cores/Threads Boost / Base Frequency Total Cache TDP NPU SEP
AMD Ryzen 7 8700G
+ Radeon 780M
8C/16T Up to 5.1GHz / 4.2GHz 24MB 65W Yes $329
AMD Ryzen 5 8600G
+ Radeon 760M
6C/12T Up to 5.0GHz / 4.3GHz 22MB 65W Yes $229
AMD Ryzen 5 8500G
+ Radeon 740M
6C/12T Up to 5.0GHz / 3.5GHz 22MB 65W N/A $179
AMD Ryzen 3 8300G
+ Radeon 740M
4C/8T Up to 4.9GHz / 3.4GHz 12MB 65W N/A N/A

Here's the new Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series CPUs for socket AM4 announced that will become available from January 31st:

Model Cores/Threads Boost / Base Frequency Total Cache TDP SEP
AMD Ryzen 7 5700X3D 8C/16T Up to 4.1GHz / 3.0GHz 100MB 105W $249
AMD Ryzen 7 5700 8C/16T Up to 4.6GHz / 3.7GHz 20MB 65W $175
AMD Ryzen 5 5600GT 6C/12T Up to 4.6GHz / 3.6GHz 19MB 65W $140
AMD Ryzen 5 5500GT 6C/12T Up to 4.4GHz / 3.6GHz 19MB 65W $125

Quoting: NasraRX 7600 XT is probably a good card, but in 128bits, the memory bandwidth will be a problem for its 16GB VRAM...

Not quite sure about this. There are interesting benchmarks regarding nVidia's own 4060 Ti 16Gb and while there is no tangible difference in framerate, the frametime is a lot better, which is the very reason for this model to exist. The problem with nVidia's card isn't the end result, it's the price.

To be honest, I am pretty interested in this RX 7600 XT, but I am really worried about power efficiency...
I think they shouldn't have overclocked it, the market was in need of an aptly priced sub-200W GPU with 16Gb of VRAM, but now its consumption is pretty much on par with the 1440p segment, which kind of defeats its purpose in the first place.

So let's wait and see, there may be surprising results at hand, but I am not very confident about these.

I just need the 6800 XT to drop to a price I'm willing to pay.
Since I'm buying a laptop, I had to settle for AMD Radeon RX 7600M XT 8GB, which should be comparable to RTX 4060 8GB. There is not much choice when it comes to mobile dGPUs on the market so far. In theory Nvidia made a great progress, but when you check dedicated Linux laptops with Nvidia, there are still many issues with suspending, Wayland and so on, which is disappointing, given the fact that those are expensive laptops that should be 100% compatible for Linux. No, they are not if Nvidia is aboard.

Laptops with older Nvidia cards are in a decent shape and Wayland works fine there, but with newer Nvidia cards, there are numerous problems. Switching from old laptop where all runs fine to a newer, more powerful laptop with a lot of Nvidia issues makes no sense.

That is why I bought TUXEDO Sirius 16 - Gen1, which is fully AMD (CPU, GPU, WiFi), so this should be a nice upgrade from my old Alienware R17 with Nvidia GTX 970M. I'm still waiting for the assembly being finished.
