# Totally confused about desktop Radeon Vega integrated graphics

11 minutes ago, Birdmilk said:- What is going on with AMD's naming? Why is there a random Vega 11?

The Vega 11 isn't random. The 3400G and 2400G used Vega 11 graphics, which has 11 compute units compared to the 7 in the Vega 7 found on the 5600G. However, the older Vega 11 in the older APUs clocks much lower and lacks some performance optimizations, meaning that usually the 5600G's iGPU does better.

Radeon RX Vega is typically in reference to the Vega 56 and Vega 64, two graphics cards released by AMD in 2017 that used scaled up versions of the integrated Vega graphics.

7 vs 8 vs 11 aren't generations. It's the number of compute units in the iGPU. Unless you mean a difference between the 3400G and 5600G, in which case, yes, there have been some iGPU optimizations and improvements between the Vega 11 in the 3400G and the Vega 7 in the 5600G that results in the 5600G's Vega 7 actually performing better in most games.

11 minutes ago, Birdmilk said:- Are the numbers behind Radeon Vega xx represent anything, like i3 or b550?

It isn't like a model number, either. Instead, as said, the 7 represents the number of compute units.

11 minutes ago, Birdmilk said:- Is there a difference between these integrated gpus and the mobile ones like a 4500U apu has, even with the same name?

The mobile ones can have different clock speeds due to the more limited power availability for mobile parts.
