AMD Radeon 780M Allegedly Faster Than NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q

There’s been some talk about the prowess of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series mobile processors as CPUs, but less spoken about its new integrated Radeon 700M series GPU, which is powered by the chipmaker’s new RDNA3 architecture. Now, news about the performance of a Radeon 780M has appeared on GeekBench.

Now, to be fair, the GeekBench listing shows the performance of the Radeon 780M on the OpenCL benchmark. While that test is the last API we would use to ascertain the prowess of a GPU, it is, nevertheless, still valuable insight into the inner workings of this new integrated GPU (iGPU).

Specs-wise, the Radeon 780M iGPU is part of the 8-core Ryzen 7 7840HS CPU, and features 12 Compute Units. In other words, it’s just as many as its predecessor, the Radeon 680M iGPU. Of course, and at the risk of repeating ourselves, the most obvious difference here are the new RDNA3 cores that now roosts on the silicon. That, and the fact that the new cores are running at 2.7GHz, which is also 300MHz faster than the 680M.

As for its performance, the Radeon 780M scored 36757 points on the OpenCL test, which is basically on par with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q and GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q discrete GPU. While that may not seem like a big deal, what is important to remember is that this performance is being derived from an integrated GPU, and not a dedicated or discrete component.

Again, the use of OpenCL to benchmark the Radeon 780M isn’t exactly a fair go for it to prove its prowess, especially where it concerns the more common synthetic and real-world benchmarks, the latter obviously being how it performs under pressure when it comes to gaming.

AMD recently launched its Ryzen 7045HX mobile series processors just recently, which means that we can expect the CPU maker to launch its 7045HS Series mobile APUs over the following weeks. In other words, it doesn’t look like too long a wait until we start seeing reviews of these new processors, along with the actual performance of the Radeon 780M.
