AMD RX 6600M laptop GPU is cheaper than the RX 6600 when it is sold as a desktop graphics card

AMD released the Radeon RX 6600 graphics card in October last year, aiming to bring a high refresh rate 1080p gaming experience to the mid-range gaming market. The original price is 2499 yuan, and players have received bad reviews.

Not long ago, some vendors sold GPUs on NVIDIA RTX 30 laptops as complete desktop graphics cards, and these vendors have recently begun to consider AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs for mobile platforms.

Speaking of which, someone may ask, why would anyone want to buy a laptop GPU to act as a desktop card? In fact, the reason is very simple, these cards are much cheaper than desktop graphics cards during the mining boom, especially since some OEMs buy mobile platform GPUs in large quantities, so the cost will be much lower than desktop graphics GPUs, and then they only need to be processed a little, can be used on desktop computers.

Not only and Taobao have such merchants, but also international platforms such as AliExpress. For example, as shown in the figure below, the minimum RX 6600M model is about 180 US dollars (about 1249.2 yuan), which is almost equivalent to the "half price" of RX6600, while the same platform The RX 6600 is also now available for $269.

The RX 6600M has basically the same specifications as the desktop GPU. Both are equipped with a Navi 23 GPU with a frequency in the 2.4-2.5 GHz range, are equipped with 8GB GDDR6 memory with a 128bit bus, and the same 14Gbps speed.

However, the main factor limiting the performance of laptops is power consumption, because desktops can completely ignore power consumption, similar to the strategies of NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel's next-generation products. According to reports, the above mobile GPU is limited to 100W (TGP), while the general desktop graphics card is 132W (TBP).

According to Miyconst's review, this notebook GPU can be overclocked normally, up to 2.5GHz, but the memory overclock seems to have no effect, and GPU-Z can also confirm that this is a mobile GPU and is fully compatible with AMD drivers.
