AMD Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL vs AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (Ryzen 2000/3000)
AMD Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL► remove from comparison
The AMD Radeon WX Vega M GL is an integrated GPU in the slower Intel Kaby-Lake-G SoC. It combines a Kaby-Lake processor, a Vega graphics card and 4 GB HBM2 memory on a single package. The graphics card offers 20 CUs (1280 shaders) and is clocked from 931 - 1011 MHz. It is technically identical to the consumer Radeon RX Vega M GL. The AMD Radeon Pro (formerly known as FirePro) is the counterpart to the Quadro series from Nvidia and offers certified drivers for professional 3D applications (CAD and DCC).
Currently it looks like the GPU is a mixture of Polaris (Shaders?) and Vega (HBM memory controller at least). E.g. the graphics card is called Polaris 22 internally. Detailed information on the Vega architecture can be found in our dedicated article about the Raven Ridge architecture.
The power consumption should be quite similar to a dedicated Vega Mobile GPU, but due to the small form factor, smaller laptops can be built with the Kaby-Lake-G SoC. The TDP is specified at 65 Watt for the whole package including GPU, CPU and HBM2 memory.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (Ryzen 2000/3000)► remove from comparison
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.
