AMD Radeon RX Vega 3 vs AMD Radeon RX Vega 64

AMD Radeon RX Vega 3

► remove AMD Vega 3

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 3 is an integrated GPU for laptops. It is used for the entry level Ryzen 3 APUs, which were launched in early 2018. The GPU is based on the Vega architecture (5th generation GCN) and has 3 CUs (= 192 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 GeForce 910M. Therefore, demanding current games may not be playable 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.

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 is a high-end desktop graphics card that was announced in August 2017. It uses the Vega 10 chip and is the top model of the AMD desktop graphics cards (through 2018). It offers 64 CUs clocked at 1247 - 1546 MHz (Boost) and 8 GB HBM2 graphics memory. In games, the Vega 64 offers a similar performance as a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 on average.
