The world of graphics is changing and AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is finally breaking the ground! A GPU of the current generation, this unit is usually found in the AMD Ryzen Processor. Grand Theft Auto V players adore this old boy as it provides marvellous resolution quality even on the big screen of around 1080p. Manufactured by Vega this old boy is also known in the market as Vega Raven Ridge. Sounds like a name of a game character, doesn’t it? 

This elegant piece has 1200 MHz as its core speed which is quite a speed if compared with other generation GPUs. The capacity of this processor in the sector of power consumption is around fifteen watts with a dual-channel shared memory. This budget-friendly GPU is used extensively in gaming and video-editing genres of the tech world. Many other highly polished GPUs have arrived on the market but still many prefer this old boy to this day. Let us find out for our readers why would anyone choose this old boy over any newcomers in the industry.

It is a budget-friendly GPU in comparison with others are there in the market. Maybe it will be assumed that due to its release a few years back, the pricing is affordable. However, let us enlighten you! The pricing strategy of Vega is dynamic and thus the price of AMD depends extensively on various other issues which include the specific Ryzen Processor to which it is attached.

If the Ryzen Processor is costly then the GPU might have an increased price. Please remember that AMD does not work alone, as Raven Ridge is a team player. As an integrated item, the cost of the product might vary due to the weightage of its partners. Currently, AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 along with the Ryzen processor 3 costs around 7,900 Indian rupees. The price varies between 11,000, 15,000, 18,000, 22,000, and 36,000 following the Ryzen processors. 7,900 in Indian rupees is the lowest price of AMD GPU to date. 


AMD design

AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 was designed to be an integrated GPU which denotes that AMD can not work alone, and it just requires a processor essentially. Originally the manufacturer Vega has installed this Vega 8 GPU in Ryzen processors and as a matter of fact, it is directly manufactured in the core processor. GPU does not call for another graphics card to function and that is one of the most loveable features of this product by Vega. These GPU and ots designs vary from the processors to processors that Vega manufactures, but there is a standard design of integrated chips in the AMD Ryzen 5-Series. The design makes it possible for the users to play lighter games, which are not extensively hard over the system. This is designed as a fifth-generation processor with another specific design of fast dual-channel DDR4-2400 RAM. This model of GPU was designed and brought into the market by the end of 2017 and is meant for playing lighter games in HD resolution. 


AMD performance

A gem in the world of gaming, this processor is an old boy, but one must remember old is gold! Despite being an older generation, AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is dear to gamers, especially GTA V gamers. It is found to have been providing the best experience to gamers. As it is an integrated GPU, the performance levels of the AMD vary in the little spectrum due to the differentiation in the levels and designs of the processors in which it is integrated. Excellent consistency in performance is one of the strengths that this oldie reflects. The score of AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is calculated to be 4.12% which is a narrow ridge alike its name. This indicates that Vega GPU has a consistent performance throughout even in the dynamic world of graphic processing units. 



It must be remembered that AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is an integrated GPU which indicates its inability to work with other processors. AMD is not compatible with other processors, like Intel ones. However, they work superbly fine in AMD core processors. 


The AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 has a major cons of not having the ability to upgrade itself however, it works completely fine in the upgrading and dynamic world situations.
