The AMD RDNA 2 ‘Radeon 680M’ combined GPU featured on the Ryzen 6000 APUs is a mini-power house, featuring the fastest presentation of any iGPU out there. We have already seen early tests, showcasing impressive gaming competencies but our friends at TechEpiphany, have shared detailed performance statistics of the chip in various modern games.

AMD RDNA 2 Powered ‘Radeon 680M’ iGPU Delivers Greate Performance with respectable 40-60 FPS In Modern AAA Games at 1080p

TechEpiphany has happened a new YouTube channel recently under the name, AMD APU Gaming. All of their gaming tests are complete on the ASUS TUF Gaming F17 (2022) notebook which features the AMD RDNA 2, 7 6800H APU with Radeon 680M iGPU and originates with a discrete GeForce RTX 3050 GPU too. Considering that this is a TUF variant, we can imagine even higher performance in more best models with the higher-TDP optimized alternatives. With that said, the Radeon 680M iGPU comes with a lot of horsepowers seeing that it is just a small combined GPU.

AMD Radeon 600M ‘RDNA 2’ iGPU Specs

The AMD RDNA 2 Radeon 680M series combined GPUs are what’s adopted by the Ryzen 6000 APUs, offering up to 12 Compute Units for 768 cores and up to 2.4 GHz GPU frequencies. The Radeon 600M GPUs pack a 50% large compute engine than the initial Vega GPUs, 50% higher bandwidth, double the L2 cache, and twice the render backends (RB+). 

The AMD Radeon 600M is split into two SKUs, the Radeon 680M which is featured on Ryzen 9 & Ryzen 7 chips, stuffing the full 12 CU & 2.4 GHz formation (4 RB+) while the Radeon 660M powers the Ryzen 5 APUs with up to 6 CUs, 1.9 GHz clocks and 2 Render backends. When it comes to numbers, AMD has recognized that the Radeon 680M series can play pretty much ever

Its performance is said to be much faster than NVIDIA’s GeForce MX450 (25W) GPU which comes as a separate solution and can even outperform the GeForce GTX 1650M Max-Q solution when FSR is enabled. FSR perceptibly gives a huge benefit to AMD’s rDNA 2 core construction as DLSS is only supported by RTX solutions. The 680M configuration of the Radeon GPU rocks up to 3.4 TFLOPs of single-precision presentation. For judgment, that’s just 15% behind the 4 TFLOPs performance of the Xbox Series S console.

Gaming Benchmarks: AMD Radeon 600M ‘RDNA 2’ iGPU

We have a new run of Cyberpunk 2077 and we have already talked about how the iGPU offers virtually GTX 1060 performance in the title. While no performance comparisons are completed, we can see that using a mix of low and medium settings at 1080p (FidelityFX UQ), a frame rate between 35-45 FPS was achieved. Just consecutively the title alone at the said surround rate is an impressive feat & the chip can also grasp a few Raytracing capabilities in the title.

Ever thought it would be imaginable to run the newest Microsoft Flight Simulator on an AMD APU? Well with the Ryzen 6000 equipped with Radeon 680M GPUs, that’s completely conceivable thanks a lot to the RDNA 2 architecture. Once again, 1080p resolution was used with the DX11 API and a mix of low to medium locations. Through the flying, the little iGPU was able to reserve over 30 FPS.

Forza Horizon 5 was next on the slant and is one of the most enhanced gaming titles within the list of AAA titles tested. I won’t talk about it much since the iGPU was able to transport a rock-solid 60 FPS at 1080p and even managed 25-30 FPS at 4K resolve!

Lastly, for users who need to run older games that still hold up in terms of graphics such as The Witcher 3, you can expect a normal of 50 FPS at 1080p with clothed settings.

All of this displays that in a few years, we will surely have iGPUs offering performance on par with entry-level and even mainstream discrete GPUs. While GPUs continue to offer additional performance, they will need more power as we are seeing right now in the high-end and even some normal options. So budget gamers who don’t want to invest in expensive and power-hungry chips can call it a day by using united solutions for their laptop and desktop requirements.
