Specs overview

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.
