Is Ryzen 7000 iGPU really as fast as Vega with 8 CU? Yes and no. Rather not.

From the beginning, AMD has emphasized that the Ryzen 7000 chiplet graphics are only a display that will allow the user to use the processor without a separate graphics card, consume online content and play / compress video. More is not the goal and more doesn’t even make sense. For those who are interested in using integrated graphics for (albeit undemanding) gaming, a classic APU makes sense, which has a better balanced ratio of graphics and processor performance for these purposes.

The Twitter account Benchleaks highlighted the results of this display in the GeekBench OpenCL test, where the small integrated GPU achieved 7808 points. Which is totally fine. Then the editors of the WCCFTech website included this score in their own graph with the results of other integrated graphs. This started the comparison, from which the mentioned display comes out almost like an asphalt ripper, which with 2 CU achieves the same performance as the integrated Vega s 8 WITH:


But here is the catch. It isn’t Vega like Vega. The editors of WCCFTech didn’t bother much with what to include, so user comparisons lead to completely distorted ideas. Let us remind you that integrated Vega appeared already in 2017 within the APU Raven Ridge. It carried 704 stream-processors (11 CU) and ran at almost half the clocks compared to current integrated graphics. There was also a version trimmed to 10 CU or 8 CU. Then came the APU Renoir with Vega, which already contained a number of optimizations and improvements developed in connection with the RDNA architecture, mainly support for significantly higher clock frequencies. Thus Vega z Renoir with 8 CU she surpassed Road z Raven Ridge with 11 CUs. She added another performance Vega z APU Cezanne (Ryzen 5000G)

You probably already know where the problem is. “Vega 8” on the WCCFTech chart is clipped low clocked Vega z APU Raven Ridge from 2017, not the current Vega from the APU Cezanne (or barceló), the performance of which you probably know from the reviews and which is enough for less demanding gaming in 1080p. It performs as follows in the GeekBench OpenCL test:

Included in the overall graph, it would look something like this:


So it’s true that the Ryzen 7000’s integrated graphics are roughly equivalent to Vega 8 graphics, but the trimmed-down one from 2017, not the full RX Vega 8 used in this year’s and last year’s APU models.
