AMD Radeon RX 7700S mobile RDNA3 GPU is 12% faster than its predecessor according to first public test

AMD RX 7700S tested in Geekbench

The very first benchmark featuring AMD’s new mobile GPU.

AMD Navi 33 is not a high-end GPU, but it is not entry-level either. The GPUs is relatively small (204 mm²), but it packs 13.3B transistors, so 10% more than some old high-end GPUs such as NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti.

AMD Radeon RX 7700S is the new discrete mobile GPU based on this Navi 33 processor. It was put inside the ASUS TUF A16 gaming laptop. Officially there is no TUF Dash gaming laptop, as this leak would suggest, but product code appears to match the latest 2023 TUF A16 Advantage Edition (FA617) system that was announced at CES 2023. This gaming laptop can be configured with up to Ryzen 7000HS Phoenix “Zen4” CPU and Radeon RX 7700S GPU.

This particular model features Zen3 Rembrandt silicon, in this case Ryzen 5 7535HS with 6 cores and 12 threads. Additionally, Radeon RX 7700S graphics were added with 2048 Streaming Processors and 8GB GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit bus.

Since we have GeForce RT 4070, 4060 and 4050 Geekbench scores already, we can now compare both architectures in the same test. It looks like the 7700S is indeed faster than the predecessor based on RDNA2 architecture, but only by 12%. Furthermore, the GPU is actually slower than the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU, but only by 3%.

It is too early to make conclusions based on this very short test alone. After all, we do not even have the TGP specs of the GPUs that were used in each of those tests and those can heavily influence final performance. However, this is what we have available at this time, with more data coming in the following weeks before these systems become available to reviewers and later gamers.
