Is this correct (rx vega 6 = gtx 1060 )

im running a ryzen 4500 u with rx vega 6 graphics , this website says its in the ballpark of a gtx 1060.if i can play cyberpunk 1080p ultra at these frames ill be thrilled,

is this correct? i don't want to purchase games that i expect to run well but wont . many of these games were made before the ryzen 5 lineup came out and i want to know if i can use the 1060 as a reference to what i should expect.

seems to me like the 1060 should be much faster than my rx vega 6. is this website erroneous? i know its no 3080 but this is far faster than i expected... point is, can i really play cyberpunk 2077 at these frames or is this nonsense.

Which website?

Don’t know - I’ll need to check a website.

No, they are most definitely not in the same ballpark.


1030/1050 at best from all the benches I've seen.

i thought i posted the website in the first post, no idea how i missed that.. i was up all night gaming.

I like how the spec on that link is wrong heh...5Gb model OK then :wink: Either way though the APU isn't up to much. Desktop 1060 > laptop 1060...same goes for any brand, any model. The laptop variant's name will be a marketing thing.

If you want to buy games that match aim for games that run on a GTX 1030 or a Radeon R5 250. I'm sure the APU will have all the newest shaders but won't be able to do much with them.

1060 comes in 3 5 and 6 gig models, the 5gb model is one of the most common ones, but thats because its mostly a chineese variant and there are lots of chineese people. i just wanted to know if these benchmarks are correct.

5gig was a cyber cafe only model. i.e. no "one" has those as they were only for businesses. 3gig models were avoided like the plaque, 6Gb are the most common. Like I said 1030/1050 at best and that's REALLY being kind. APU or any mobile varient of a GPU will be seriously crippled compared to the "fullsize/desktop" varient. RTX 3080 mobile more like pascal GTX 1080 heh.

all i wanted to know if the bench marks are correct or not..seems they are...thanks anyways.

The GeForce GTX 1060 5 GB was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched on December 26th, 2017. Built on the 16 nm process, and based on the GP106 graphics processor, in its GP106-350-K3-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12. This ensures that all modern games will run on GeForce GTX 1060 5 GB. The GP106 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 200 mm² and 4,400 million transistors. It features 1280 shading units, 80 texture mapping units, and 40 ROPs. NVIDIA has paired 5 GB GDDR5 memory with the GeForce GTX 1060 5 GB, which are connected using a 160-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1506 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1709 MHz, memory is running at 2002 MHz (8 Gbps effective).
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 5 GB draws power from 1x 6-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 120 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 1060 5 GB is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 250 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.

the specs are not wrong...

What are you basing that on? The page I linked to does not agree with the “gagadget” site by a significant margin:

Those benchmarks don’t appear to be representative of the relative performance of those devices.

Whether they are correct is hard to say because they are only for one specific game and there is no information about the hardware or how the tests were run. Further, the tests were on a game which neither piece of hardware was capable of producing high frame rates on.

All in all, I wouldn’t use that data for anything.


There are other games. The game title is a drop-down menu.

However I also failed to see the system specs of the benchmarked systems which invalidates the benchmarks IMO.

Really should look around at different reviews to get a decent idea of what performance is actually like, or as I fear is occurring here, look around until you find result that you like :expressionless:

I would also like to point out that you will take an FPS hit running that particular game on Linux vs windows so whatever the windows FPS it will be a little lower on Linux(not all games have this issue some it may even be reversed, but cyberpunk is not one)

you could be right but often games actually run faster on Linux using vulkan than in windows direct x.

you could be right, reason i assumed the benchmarks for the ryzen system are legit is because they have so many game benchmarks . whatever the scenario if i can even run medium at playable frame rates i will be pleased.

but you are correct in the sense that all the websites have different conflicting benchmarks for my ryzen system. i have no idea why this is, ive never seen this with other gpus before. seems like the only way ill know for sure is to try it myself. ill have to hope that i can refund the game if it doesnt work..

any ideas as to how i can buy games and refund them if they dont work, i've heard steam does this but i would rather not use steam.

  • Laptops have configurable TDPs so the OEM can tweak to match with the cooling solution and power bracket they're targeting.
  • The cooling solutions are often inadequate, so the chip throttles back to avoid overheating or failuring to throttle up full due to lack of cooling.
  • iGPUs are heavily dependant on the speed of the system memory.
  • Driver version can make significant difference as can game/Windows updates.
  • Individual game settings can make significant differences, especially between different architectures (I don't know the current major ones, but TresFx & nVidia Gameworks stuff come to mind).
  • Ambient temperatures can make a difference (depending on how margin the cooling is).
  • If there's no in-built benchmark, then the scenes/locations/actions that the tester runs through varies between testers.
  • Number of runs the tester goes through and whether they take highest/lowest scores or average and how they average.
  • Whether Windows is set to Balanced or High Performance makes a difference as does whether the laptop's running on battery or plugged it.

One of the nice things about linux garuda is that if you are smart enough you can prevent all that with settings.. i dont have throttling issues at all, and things run cool and the summer i might have issues but right now its plenty cool were i am. and i do run plugged in...thing is, issues with heat and tdp arent much of an issue for a laptop that runs a 15 watt tdp..this is 2020 tech not 2012..15 watts not 35 45 or 65.

Default TDP - 15W
AMD Configurable TDP (cTDP) 10-25W

I waste no more time here

i lock my gpu with corectrl at 1500mhz and i let the cpu boost as it sees fit. the boost to the cpu stays around 3.7 ghz max boost is 4ghz .that is at 15 watt tdp .
