AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX Vega M GL sales 1 February 2018. This is a laptop graphics card based on a GCN 4.0 architecture and made with 14 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of HBM2 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 1024 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 179.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. Power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 9.35% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
