AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 (Ryzen 5000)

AMD Vega 8 R5000

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is an integrated GPU in the Ryzen 5000 series for laptops (Cezanne, e.g. Ryzen 7 5800U). The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) clocked at up to 2.000 MHz. Compared to the previous generation of Vega 8 iGPUs, the Ryzen 5000 series offers some optimizations and higher clock speeds of 2 GHz vs 1.75 GHz. 

The performance depends on the configured TDP limit of the Ryzen chip and the cooling of the laptop. Furthermore, the memory setup greatly influences the gaming performance. In our tests, the performance was significantly better than the old 4000 generation (e.g. 17% in synthetic tests), but still only suited for low demanding games in low resolutions and settings.

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.

Thanks to the modern 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.
