AMD Vega Mobile Vs Vega M, What Is The Difference?

While AMD Vega Mobile and Vega M might seem like the same thing, in reality, they are not. If you are interested in taking a look at the differences then you have come to the right place. Starting off it would seem that Vega M is based on Pascal 22 and the SKUs are AMD RX Vega M GH and GL. These are mobile graphics that we have seen in some laptops in recent days.

AMD Vega Mobile is based on the Vega architecture and the different SKUs that we have seen include AMD Vega 28 as well as Vega 11. At its heart, Polaris 22 is still Polaris and is based on GCN4. It has been customized to meet Intel specifications, such as 64 ROPs. It should be noted that Polaris 22 does have some features of Vega but it is much closer to Polaris.

It should be noted that while the AMD RX Vega M GH and GL graphics are names as Vega but they are Polaris 22 at the core. This can be a bit confusing at first glance but don’t tell me that I did not tell you so. If this is something that you cannot wrap your head around then you can check out the images included below that back up my findings.

I can see why this would be confusing to the general public and it is understandable but now you know. The Intel chips with Vega graphics are pretty powerful, especially if you are comparing them to integrated Intel graphics. With these chips, you can get 4 core and 8 threads in a laptop form factor.
