Of course, we first turn our heads to AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL. The graphics card is equipped with a total of 1280 shading units, 80 texture mapping units, and 32 ROPs. Manufactured through a 14 nm process, AMD’s option is based on the Vega Kaby Lake-G architecture and supports DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.6. Furthermore, it relies on 4096 MB HBM2 memory using a 1024-bit memory interface. On top of that, the graphics card operates at a base frequency of 931 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1011 MHz. As for the TDP, it is rated at 65 W.

Moving on to its rival – the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 is part of the Pascal lineup of GPUs with a total of 384 shader (CUDA) cores, 24 TMUs, and 8 ROPs. Built on a 14nm manufacturing process, it also offers support for DirectX 12_1. In addition, the GPU operates at a relatively high base frequency of 1469 MHz, while the Boost frequencies reach up to 1532 MHz. Other specs include 2GB of GDDR5 memory on a 64-bit interface, as well as relatively low TDP of 25W.
