AMD Radeon RX Vega 6

AMD Vega 6

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 is an integrated GPU for notebooks. It is used for the Ryzen 3 APUs, which were launched in early 2018. The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 6 CUs (= 384 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.

Currently we estimate a performance around a Intel UHD Graphics 630. Therefore, only lower demanding games of 2016 should run in low detail settings fluently.

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.
