AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics of Ryzen 5 Processor

The AMD Radeon Vega 8 is an integrated graphics processor used in the AMD Ryzen 5-series main processors for laptops. The Radeon Vega 8 can be used for light gaming. It offers performance similar to basic graphics of common laptop processors, such as the Intel UHD graphics of the Intel Core CPUs. A step up in the AMD Radeon Vega line is the Vega 10 of the Ryzen 7 chips, offering improved performance, but still in the light gaming category.

AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics Benchmark

Here’s a benchmark test of the Radeon Vega 8 graphics processor, incorporated into the popular AMD Ryzen 5 3500U main processor. It’s compared to other widely used graphics processors for laptops.

AMD Radeon Vega 8 Benchmark

You can watch Vega 8 gameplay videos in the Reviews, Q&A, and Videos section below on this page.

Note: The benchmark scores of the listed graphics processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 and compared GPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors (especially single-channel vs faster dual-channel RAM and speed of the main processor). However, the benchmark results, as well as gameplay videos, are good indicators of the graphics processors' performance.

      On most laptop, there’s an option in BIOS settings to increase memory used by the graphics processor, such as the Vega 8. The Vega 8 doesn’t have it’s own video memory, it uses the main system memory – RAM.

    im using honor magicbook 14 with GPU Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphic integrated graphics card.
    Do it support external monitor of 2560×1080 ? pls help. tqtq

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Dan

      As far as I know Magicbook 14 has HDMI 1.4 video output port which supports 2560×1080 resolution. However, it has a lower bandwidth than HDMI 2.0 standard, so you won’t be able to have high refresh rates for extra smooth motion like 120Hz or 144Hz at 2560×1080. In theory, HDMI 1.4 supports 2560×1080 at 100Hz max. The most common refresh rate used by external monitors is 60Hz, so if your monitor is at 60Hz you don’t need a higher refresh rate anyway.

      As for the Vega 8 itself, I wasn’t able to find info on maximal refresh rates, but modern GPUs like the Vega 8 regularly support 60Hz even on ultra high resolutions like 4K 3840 × 2160.

    • Adhi

      Hi Dan, can Vega 8 (on the laptop) support multiple monitors? Can’t find the specs so far if it can support more than one extended monitor.

      Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Dan

      I can’t find that info too. Usually, modern laptops with multiple video output ports (i.e. DisplayPort via USB-C and HDMI) do support multiple external displays. So I assume Vega 8 can do that too if there are multiple video out ports on the laptop. There might be some limitations in terms of screen refresh rate, for instance multiple 4K monitors limited at 30 Hz instead of standard 60 Hz or higher.

  4. Question

    AJ

    Hi. This is my laptop’s specs. I’m currently using HP 15s-eq0067au.
    When i purchased it, i requested to upgrade my RAM to 8 GB but it shows here only 6 GB is usable. Does that mean the Vega 8 takes 2 GB from the RAM.
    Another question: if i want to upgrade my RAM up to 16 GB, it will show only 14 GB RAM is usable?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Dan

      Yes, integrated graphics processors including the Vega 8 use RAM memory as video memory, so you have less usable RAM for other purposes. Most laptops have in their BIOS settings an option to set maximal RAM amount that integrated graphics can take.

    • Sanchezium

      If you use ryzne controler or amd apu tuning utility (second one is newer and better) you can increase your TDP/STAMP setting, graphics memory setting and graphics core setting and even max temp, however be aware that most nootbooks have bad cooling system and if you increase tdp (which is a must because otherwise processor will be workin in 0.60 ghz) over some point then your laptop can literally melt before your very own eyes, soooooo…………..
      YES, you can (a tip for you, if you have $#ITY cooling system dont increase tdp over 17)

    • Sanchezium

      And one more thing, in my case (the one with bad cooling) after changing tdp to 17, temps increased to max 88°C, for a laptop its kinda normal and max temp of ryzen 3500u with vega 8 is 105°C so its shouldn’t do any harm.

    • Dan

      When it comes to everyday home and office use, 2K resolution isn’t a problem for modern integrated graphics processors, including the Vega 8. 3D gaming is a different story, since the Vega 8 is a lower-end graphics processor and not suitable for heavy games.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Dan

      Many notebooks with the Radeon Vega 8 and 8GB RAM have 2GB of it reserved for the Vega 8. So, it is possible to have more than 512MB of shared memory with the Vaga 8. Usually, laptops with the Vega 8 and other integrated graphics processors have in their BIOS settings an option to set maximal RAM amount that laptop’s GPU can use.

    • Zem

      your cpu and gpu are integrated together, your gpu is in your cpu in short, you don’t need to get rid of the gpu, you can safely just install a different gpu in your motherboard but this cpu (or rather apu) is pretty weak, it’s like only good for really light gaming (most 3d games just don’t work lol, nights in the woods runs like garbage xD) so I would reccomend buying a new ryzen cpu and then getting a gpu
      you can go on reddit and ask people there or watch LinusTechTips to get more education about pc building

      Does your computer use Radeon graphics that is integrated into the main processor? It is possible to have a PC without a dedicated video card, if the main processor features integrated graphics. By the way, if you’re referring to a laptop computer, then graphics and the main processor are not upgradeable.

    I have bought acer aspire 3 laptop of 4 gb ram and i got 512 mb vram (vega 8)
    While in youtube vedios some people bought the same laptop of 8 gb ram and they got 1gb vram

    So if i upgrade my ram wit also automatically increase vram

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Joe Sang

      No the vram capacity is fixed. However game performance is not determined by vram because the vram is still extracted from system memory. However if you use dual channel ram, that is, 2 ram modules of the same capacity and speed, you will get a 15-30% increase in performance. Note that the fixed vram capacity is extracted from the ram hence it is unavailable for use in Windows.

      If you’re asking about real / physical memory of the Vega 3, it doesn’t have any. It uses the main RAM memory of the computer, with amount of it depending on a task. I’m not sure the maximum amount of RAM Vega 3 can utilize, but 2GB usage is generally often supported by modern integrated graphics processors such as the Vega 3.

    • Dima

      Yes it can, depends which cod too. The newest warzone, I get probably 30/40 fps on default or lowered graphics cant remember.
      Some games reach 100+ fps, where as some games 40/50fps.
      LoL = 140/180fps
      Cod=30/40fps
      Rust=30/60fps(performance over quality)
      GTA/online= 60+fps(probably more but stable 100% at 60)
      MC= 200/300fps (RLcraft {Heavy mod} 70/150fps)
      GW2=40/50fps
      In general for internet browsing / start up / loading speed all that is perfect no complains.
      Conclusion this is 100% worth it for someone with small budget, you can buy this set up, use it for 1 year and in mean time save up some money, to then upgrade the gpu or both new cpu and gpu combo for better performance!
