AMD Radeon Pro Vega 16: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon Pro Vega 16

Summary

AMD started Radeon Pro Vega 16 sales 15 November 2018. This is Vega architecture notebook card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of HBM2 memory clocked at 2.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 1024 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 307.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.42 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
