At CES 2022, AMD updated its laptop platform GPU product line, launching its first 6nm process GPU, the Radeon RX 6x50M series, and the Radeon RX 6000S series. Such a massive and detailed update for AMD’s laptop GPUs is impressive, but also a bit confusing, given that the products are both related and distinct in the name.
In contrast, AMD’s GPU product line on the desktop platform is much clearer, but there is still room for improvement in configuration. Twitter user @greymon55 said that AMD may update its Radeon RX 6000 series product line to configure higher clock GDDR6 memory and even increase the core clock, but there is no specific information for the time being.
Referring to the naming specifications of the laptop platform, it may be called the Radeon RX 6×50 series.
Considering AMD is already using 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory on the Radeon RX 6500 XT, it wouldn’t be surprising to see similar upgrades for other models to follow. In the last month, Samsung has announced that it will provide partners with 16Gb GDDR6 memory modules at 20 Gbps and 24 Gbps, which is a significant improvement over the current ubiquitous 18 Gbps modules, and may appear in the next round of graphics card updates from AMD and Nvidia.
