    Well, in an all-AMD system, yes, you're correct. But Dell did have a laptop with the RX 5700m. It was for the Alienware Area 51m R2.
    Also, I think the Sonnet Breakaway Box eGPU also used the RX 5700m.

    I can't call it disappointing when it performs as it should. It's literally an RX 5700 (non-XT) and scores like one. It would've been a popular release if it was ready by CES.

    A major reason for the dearth of RX 5000M laptops was that AMD was so freaking late to the party with them. The 5700M didn't hit the 51M until what, almost Q3?

    Regardless of our opinions on the quality of Nvidia's GPUs, the OEMs love them because Nvidia guarantees that without fail, when Q1 and CES comes around there will be new mobile GPUs to market at the conference. When is the last time Nvidia released desktop cards in Q3/Q4 of a year, then not had the mobile variants at CES in the following Q1? Clockwork is a powerful tool.

    AMD took a full year after the RX 5700 came out to have laptop GPUs available. The laptop manufactures have no time for that type of uncertainty.

    https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-radeon-rx-6800m-high-end-mobile-gaming-card-to-feature-navi-22-gpu

    "According to Komachi, who discovered RX 6800M in the most recent display driver, AMD is planning Navi 22 based Radeon RX 6800M graphics card. The GPU would use a Device ID of 73D5:C3, which is sandwiched between two variants of desktop Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards (varying by TGP specifications). Since both of those variants have 2560 Stream Processors (the full configurations), it would be obvious to expect RX 6800M also to feature the full GPU specs."

    Its the same in any industry, Lenovo did the same thing after acquiring IBM, its not as if they flushed everything in development down the toilet.

    Thats what @kothletino means (I believe) by it being originally an ATi project, it was already in the pipeline, AMD acquired it of course. Of course you can argue that it becomes an AMD project but still, was originally an ATi project.

    Play Older PC Games? Think Twice About AMD's RDNA 2 Cards pcmag.com

    n our testing, DirectX 11 gaming performance with AMD's late-model RDNA 2-based Radeon graphics cards has proven to be uneven. Can AMD's SAM tech (and a sizable overclock) come to the rescue?

    “AMD strives to provide the best performance to gamers with all of our products. We prioritize optimizations that benefit the widest group of gamers, ensuring those on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture will enjoy strong performance in more modern titles as well as more broadly played popular titles using both modern and legacy APIs.”
