AMD Phoenix RDNA3 iGPU could be as fast as the slowest GeForce RTX 3060 mobile GPU

Please note that this post is marked as a rumor.

AMD Phoenix APU with discrete mid-range GPU performance

Greymon55 claims that the upcoming integrated graphics in the AMD Phoenix APU could show comparable performance to the most limited versions of the RTX 3060.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 series will officially include two mobile series: the Dragon Range for high-performance laptops and the Phoenix for thin and lightweight designs. The latter is expected to now have an RDNA3 graphics architecture combined with Zen4 computer cores.

The Phoenix APU will run in the 35 to 45 W range, which probably means the Ryzen 7000HS and 7000H series. This power is not only for graphics, but also for Zen4 cores and other integrated logic. Still, Greymon’s claims that an integrated RDNA3 GPU alone could offer RTX 3060M at 60W (formerly called Max-Q) performance would be big news for ‘light’ gaming.

It should be noted that the 60W version of the RTX 3060 is not very popular in the latest designs, but can be found in laptops such as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 from 2021, and even there it supports Dynamic Boost (+ 20W), so on the side – comparison next to another can be difficult. Still, the RTX 3060M-class GPU with such limited power is at worst 30% slower than the fully unlocked variant. It comes with a GPU clock in the range of 817-1282 MHz, which is significantly less than the fastest clock of 1702 MHz for the 115 W variant.

Meanwhile, AMD Ryzen integrated RDNA graphics are already shipped at 2.4 GHz (Ryzen 9 6900HS). The AMD Phoenix iGPU will use 5 nm process technology and further optimizations that could potentially increase the clock speed of the iGPU. So, the Phoenix RDNA3 iGPU doesn’t necessarily have as many shaders as the RTX 3060, they just need to be faster.

NVIDIA has targeted ‘ultra’ 1080p gaming with its RTX 3060 laptops. Sure, the included DLSS support paid for the 3060M’s popularity, but AMD has since released its FSR super-resolution technology and could soon offer similar performance with laptops that don’t even have discrete GPUs.
