At present AMD has formally introduced one of many lengthy rumoured lacking Navi components within the type of the brand new Radeon Professional 5600M cell GPU, seeing the Navi 12 design lastly take form as a product.
The brand new high-end cell GPU is a successor to the Radeon Professional Vega 20 and Vega 16 designs launched again in 2018, merchandise that ended up being utilized in Apple’s MacBook laptops. The brand new Radeon Professional 5600M additionally sees its debut within the new 16” MacBook Professional that’s additionally been debuted immediately. Apple has historically had unique rights to those cell Radeon Professional SKUs so it’s seemingly this exclusivity additionally applies to the brand new Radeon Professional 5600M.

The brand new cell GPU is characterised by its massive compute unit depend in addition to its utilization of HBM2 reminiscence. With a CU depend of 40, leading to 2540 stream processors, the Radeon Professional 5600M truly matches AMD’s present finest desktop graphics designs such because the Navi 10-based Radeon 5700XT. A key distinction right here lies within the clocks as this cell variant solely clocks as much as a most of 1035MHz, leading to a theoretical most throughput of 5.3TFLOPs, fairly a bit lower than its desktop counterpart which lands in at 9.75TFLOPs.
When it comes to bandwidth nevertheless, the cell chip greater than retains up with its desktop counterpart. AMD is utilizing a 2048-bit HBM2 reminiscence interface to as much as 8GB of reminiscence operating at 1.54Gbps, leading to a bandwidth of 394GB/s, solely a bit lower than the 448GB/s of the Radeon 5700XT.
The Radeon Professional 5600M is marketed with a complete graphics energy (TGP) of 50W, similar to the TGP of the Radeon Professional 5500M and the Radeon Professional 5300M, each primarily based on the Navi 14 die which incorporates a lot much less compute models. This makes the 5600M an extremely performant and environment friendly design.
The brand new Radeon Professional 5600 is now out there within Apple’s MacBook Professional 16” as an choice, and comes at a $700 mark-up versus the default Radeon Professional 5500M GPU.
