Page 4 : How Fast Are The Ryzen Mobile & Radeon Vega Graphics?
How Fast Is The Ryzen Mobile CPU?
AMD shared the following performance results of the Ryzen Mobile CPU.
In this comparison, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is 8% faster than the Intel Core i7-8550U, and 10% faster than the Core i7-7500U in the single-core test.
When all four cores were enabled, the Ryzen 7 2700U was 44% faster than the Intel Core i7-8550U, and 2.2X faster than the Core i7-7500U!
Here are some additional benchmark results of the new AMD Ryzen 7 2700U and Ryzen 5 2500U APUs against the Intel Core i7-8550U and the previous-generation AMD FX-9800P APU.
With the greatly-increased performance of the new Ryzen 7 2700U APU, AMD points out that it is slightly (7%) faster than the Intel Core i5-7600K – a quad-core desktop processor with 6X higher TDP!
How Fast Is Radeon Vega Graphics?
With just ten or eight Compute Units, the Radeon Vega GPU embedded into the Ryzen Mobile has nowhere near the performance of the Radeon RX Vega 64 or Vega 56 desktop graphics cards. However, they are still much faster than the mobile GPUs that both AMD and Intel have ever introduced in a mobile processor.
In the 3DMark Time Spy DirectX 12 test, the Ryzen 7 2700U with its 10 Compute Units was able to slightly beat the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M discrete graphics. That makes it about 2.5X faster than Intel HD Graphics.
What this means is the Radeon Vega Graphics in the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is fast enough to deliver playable frame rates at 1080p resolution for most games.
