AMD Lisa Su reaffirms Radeon RX 6000 mobile series is to launch this quarter

AMD Radeon RX 6000M later this quarter

During Q1 2021 earnings call with investors, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su reaffirmed that RDNA2 GPUs for laptops are still launching in Q2 2021.

We have not heard anything from AMD about their RDNA2 GPUs for laptops for quite a while. AMD has been very reluctant to share the details on its new laptops GPUs, leaving many enthusiasts uncertain if there is anything in the pipeline actually worth waiting for.

At CES 2021, AMD announced its Ryzen 5000H series high-end CPU series for laptops. The lack of RDNA2 GPU supply left notebook makers with no choice but to equip those Zen3 laptops with NVIDIA Ampere mobile GPUs instead. Now exactly two weeks before Intel might launch its high-end laptop processors, AMD could actually launch its next-gen mobile GPUs shortly after. But was it a plan to pair RDNA2 GPUs with Intel Tiger Lake-H in the first place? Probably not, but the timing of both launches does seem like an unfortunate coincidence.

Dr. Lisa Su has recently reiterated AMD plans to launch RDNA2 laptop GPUs later this quarter. This probably means late May or June at the earliest:

In graphics, revenue increased by a strong double-digit percentage year-over-year and sequentially, led by channel sales growth as revenue from our high-end Radeon 6000 GPUs more than doubled from the prior quarter. We introduced our Radeon 6700 XT Desktop CPU with leadership 1440p gaming performance in March, and are on track for the first notebooks featuring our leading edge mobile RDNA 2 architecture to launch later this quarter. We expect Radeon 6000 series GPU sales to grow significantly over the coming quarters as we ramp production.

We have not seen any leaks from retailers with laptop designs featuring those GPUs, but we did see some leaks on the next-gen RX 6000M GPUs themselves. So far only the Radeon RX 6600M has made a debut in the official driver. This could suggest that Navi 23 XM-based SKU will be the first to launch. AMD is also working on its high-end Navi 22 mobile GPUs, namely RX 6700M and RX 6800M. Those should provide an interesting option for 1440p gaming laptops that are now slowly becoming popular among gamers.
