Let’s start with the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 found on the Ryzen 7 2700u APU. The chip is based on the Vega architecture and has 10 computing units, which have 640 shaders in total clocked at up to 1300 MHz. Because of the fact that it is integrated, the graphics card relies on the whole chip when it comes to memory which is this case is dual-channel DDR4 RAM with up to 2400MHz clock. In addition, the average power consumption of both the CPU and the GPU is rather low – 15W.
Moving on, the AMD Radeon 530 is a dedicated graphics card made for entry-level notebooks. Based on the Sun GCN architecture, it features 320 or 384 shaders (depending on the version you go for). In addition, the AMD Radeon 530 relies on 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2250 MHz (also has a DDR3 variant) and it’s connected to it using a 64-bit interface. The chip alone has a power consumption of 50 W.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
In the graph above you can see an approximate comparison between the two GPUs that can be found in Acer Swift 3 (SF315-41) and Dell Inspiron 5770 respectively. The AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 performs around 15-66% better, although in some of the benchmarks the results are very close.
In conclusion, we can say that both graphics cards have similar performance, although our winner is the AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 as it shows better results.
