TechEpiphany on YouTube recently played God of War on AMD’s latest Radeon 660M integrated graphics hardware, which has the new FSR 2.0 update. Although the iGPU isn’t one of the strongest graphics cards, the 15W RDNA 2 chip managed to pull out passable frame rates at 1080P (1920 x 1080) without sacrificing too much graphic detail. Given its ultra-low-power budget and mediocre specifications, this is an astounding result.
According to TechEpiphany’s tests with the Ryzen 5 6600H, the Radeon 660M isn’t a bad gaming option as long as you have a resolution upscaler on hand, such as AMD’s FSR 2.0 in God of War.
The Radeon 660M could provide a reasonable 30 FPS overall at 1080P with a combination of low, medium, and high settings and FSR 2.0 in balanced mode, with highs in the 35 FPS area
FSR 2.0 in performance mode, however, did not affect performance, with frame rates remaining in the 30 FPS range in the same scene. Frame rates improved from 35 to 38 FPS when the scenario moved from an outside woodland to a home interior. For 1080P gaming with FSR 2.0, the Radeon 660M falls well short of the suggested Radeon RX 5700. Furthermore, due to the increasing demands of its temporal scaling method, FSR 2.0 requires significantly more compute overhead than FSR 1.0 ever did.
In AMD’s latest Ryzen 6000 (Rembrandt) mobile APUs, the Radeon 660M is one of AMD’s first RDNA 2-based integrated graphics solutions. Except for the unique Aerith SoC housed in Valve’s Steam Deck, AMD’s Radeon 660M and Radeon 680M are the only RDNA 2-based iGPUs available.
The Radeon 660M is the weaker of the two, with 384 cores and a boost speed of 1,900 MHz compared to the Radeon 680 M 680 M 680 M 680M’s 680 M 680 M 680 M 680 M 680 M 680 M 680 M 680 M The Radeon 680M has 768 cores and a substantially faster boost frequency of 2,400 MHz.
The Radeon 660M, on the other hand, has a much lower TDP of only 15W, making it an excellent choice for lightweight ultrabooks and other mobile devices. On the other hand, the Radeon 680M has a maximum TDP of 45W.
Overall, the Radeon 660M isn’t likely to be recognized as the best gaming GPU ever. However, despite its 15W power budget, it can give a passable gaming experience on even the most graphically demanding titles. As a result, we shouldn’t be surprised to see reasonable frame rates from FSR 2.0 on an iGPU.
