AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 vs Intel UHD Graphics 620 – the Vega 8 is nearly twice faster than its opponent

In recent years, AMD is starting to get the edge on Intel – not only in the processor world but also in the integrated graphics department. In fact, AMD’s integrated graphics on theory was always better than Intel’s. However, in practice, the results were completely different. Let’s see if that has changed.

You can have a look at our Top Laptop Graphics Ranking to see these cards and even more.

Specs overview

Both of these graphics cards are using the 15W of their CPU TDPs. Respectively, the Radeon RX Vega 8 can be found in the AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, Ryzen 5 2500U, Ryzen 5 3550H and other Ryzen 5 processors, while the UHD 620 is located in all of the Kaby Lake Refresh and Whiskey Lake Core processors. With that said, the Radeon RX Vega 8 has 512 Shader cores that work at 1100 MHz, while the Intel UHD Graphics 620 has only 24, working at 1150 MHz. Either of them is using system memory.

Benchmarks

Comparing the two in raw performance shows an immense advantage for the RX Vega 8.

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)

Conclusion

Perhaps expectedly, the Radeon RX Vega 8 proved to be superior to its opponent – the Intel UHD Graphics 620. In similar devices, the difference in terms of raw power is overwhelming. It is true that the UHD Graphics 620 is already dated hardware, but Intel has to do something on that… Quickly.
