AMD Radeon Vega 8

The Radeon Vega 8 is an AMD GPU that was released in January 2021. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 5% in our PC benchmark.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon Vega 8 GPU core runs at a frequency of 300 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 2000 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon Vega 8 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

The AMD Radeon Vega 8 has a TDP of 45W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
