AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 vs NVIDIA GeForce MX150 (2GB GDDR5)

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

The mobile Ryzen 7 2700U APU combines a powerful Ryzen CPU with the all-new integrated Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics chip.

Now it is time to juxtapose the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 found in the Ryzen 7 2700U and the Pascal-based dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX150 meant for low-end notebooks.

Specs overview

It is not preferable to compare the specifications of the two graphics chips directly as they have different manufacturers that use different technology. Also, the numbers do not always translate into real-life performance.

Firstly, the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 is based on the Vega architecture and features 10 computing units and a total of 640 shaders. Manufactured through a 14 nm process, the chip ticks at a maximum frequency of 1300 MHz. Being integrated, the graphics card relies on the whole chip when it comes tо memory – the GPU benefits from fast dual-channel DDR4 RAM with up to 2400MHz clock. In this case, the average power consumption is rather low – 15W.

Moving on to the dedicated graphics card, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 is a Pascal-based GPU aimed at low-end notebooks and features 384 shader cores. It is based on the same 14nm FinFET manufacturing process and runs at a base frequency of 1468 MHz. In addition, the graphics card relies on 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and has a 25W TDP of the chip alone.
