AMD Radeon RX Vega 10

AMD Vega 10

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 is an integrated GPU for notebooks. It is used for the Ryzen 7 APUs, which were launched in the end of 2017. The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 10 CUs (=640 shaders) clocked at up to 1300 MHz (Ryzen 7 2700U). The performance depends on the configured TDP (9-25 W at launch), the clocks, the cooling, and the memory configuration). The GPU should benefit from fast dual-channel DDR4-2400 RAM (contrary to DDR4-2133 single-channel, which is also possible).

The Vega architecture offers some improvements over the Polaris generation and now supports DirectX 12 Feature Level 12_1. More information is available in our dedicated article about the Raven Ridge architecture.

AMD's reference design GPU is sitting between the GeForce 940MX / Radeon Pro 450 and GeForce MX150 / Radeon Pro 555. It can handle smooth gameplay in simple titles like League of Legends (med), Dota 2 (low), Overwatch (low), CS:GO (med), and Quake Champions (high) in 720p up to 1080p according to AMD.

Thanks to the 14nm process and clever power-saving features, the power consumption is comparatively low (according to AMD), so the graphics card can also be used for slim and light notebooks.
