AMD Radeon RX Vega 2

AMD Vega 2

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 2 is an integrated GPU for laptops. It is used for the entry level Athlon Silver 3050U APUs, which were launched in early 2020. The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 2 CUs (= 128 of the 704 shaders) clocked at up to 1100 MHz. The performance depends on the configured TDP (12-25 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.

The performance should be clearly lower than the Radeon RX Vega 3 with 3 CUs and therefore in the lowest performance region of modern GPUs. That means, demanding current games may not be playable fluently.

Thanks to the 12nm 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.
