AMD set to push the GeForce GTX 16 series to retirement
Entry-level gaming performance without discrete GPU.
While OpenCL is the last graphics API one would consider useful for gaming performance evaluation, it is an important value that we can add to what we already know about Radeon 780M performance.
There have been multiple leaks featuring Ryzen 7040 iGPU performance already. This is the laptop CPU series codenamed “Phoenix” to features Zen4 and RDNA3 microarchitectures in a single die. It is a true successor to Rembrandt and a highly anticipated part for lightweight systems, including mainstream laptops and handheld gaming consoles as well.
Earlier evaluations showed that the Radeon 780M integrated RDNA3 GPU offers sub GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Laptop GPU performance. The new numbers featuring Geekbench OpenCL data appear to corroborate on this claim. In fact, it is now possible to say that R780M should occupy the territory between GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q and GTX 1650 Max-Q mobile graphics.
On the Ryzen 7 7840HS 8-core APU, the Radeon 780M iGPU has 12 Compute Units, so just as many as the last-gen Radeon 680M graphics. However, those have been updated to RDAN3 architecture and now support faster clocks speeds up to 2.7 GHz (around 300 MHz faster).

One could also compare R780M to R680M performance, but the OpenCL data is frankly speaking all over the price and this would not be a fair comparison. However, in most cases it is between 28K to 34K on the most powerful 6900HX APU.
AMD is to launch its Ryzen 7040HS APUs in the coming weeks. The series is to follow the Ryzen 7045HX “Dragon Range” flagship SKUs, which have been released last week.
