AMD Radeon Vega 8 Mobile technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon Vega 8 Mobile

Summary

AMD started Radeon Vega 8 Mobile sales 24 November 2017. This is a GCN 5.0 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 0.3 GB of DDR4 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is IGP card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 13.03 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Interface
PCIe 3.0 x16
 

Memory specs

Parameters of memory installed on the video card - type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
