AMD Radeon RX Vega 5

AMD Vega 5

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 5 is an integrated GPU for notebooks. It is used for the Ryzen 3 4000 APUs, which were launched in early 2020. The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 5 CUs (= 320 shaders) clocked at up to 1400 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 DDR4-3200 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 slightly below or on par with the older Radeon RX Vega 6 (6 CUs but lower clock speeds). Therefore, only a few modern games like Fifa 20 or F1 2019 should be able to run in lowest detail settings.

Thanks to the 7nm 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.
