A recent analysis of AMD’s shipping documents has potentially unearthed the missing-in-action RX 7800M & 7700M mobile GPUs. Team Red has since released several Radeon RX 7000M Series GPUs to market, including the high-end RX 7900M, RX 7600M, RX 7600M XT, and two low-powered AMD Radeon RX 7000S Series GPUs. This late introduction could bridge a massive performance gap in AMD’s roster.
Reliable hardware leaker, Harukaze5179 found that AMD shipping records reveal codenames associated with AMD’s Navi 31, 32, and 33 GPUs, codenamed Cuarzo Rojo, Cuarzo Verde, and Cuarzo Azul, respectively. Many of these GPUs are already available in either desktop, workstation, or mobile form factors. The only exception is that we have yet to receive a laptop-ready Navi 32 GPU. Even more so, there are two specific entries referencing unreleased mobile GPUs.
The RDNA 3, Navi 32 architecture powers the RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT desktop graphics cards. This could mean that these entries are potentially mobile counterparts of these GPUs. An enticing prospect that would address performance gaps in AMDs current mobile GPU lineup. Besides this, AMD’s no stranger to releasing additional SKUs this late in the game. Plus, it has proven successful thus far.
AMD describes Navi 32 GPUs as “the ultimate graphics cards for 1440p,” and the original duo certainly ruffled the feathers of Nvidia’s RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Ti. In terms of performance, the closely matched cards outperformed Team Green’s counterparts in pure rasterization benchmarks. However, even the RX 7800 XT struggled to match its competitors with ray traced effects enabled. AMD’s Fluid Motion Frames is slowly closing that gap against Nvidia DLSS, but its GPU-agnostic frame interpolation tech is still missing from the latest mainstream driver update.
If the mobile variants are anything close to its desktop counterparts, they could make for ideal high-value, mid-range laptop solutions. Of course, nothing is set in stone. You should take all the above information with a pinch of salt.
