In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon R9 360 (OEM).

The R9 360 has a 69 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 360. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 26.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R9 360. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 360 has a 69 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 360. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 13.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R9 360. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega was released over a year more recently than the R9 360, and so the RX Vega is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 360.

The RX Vega has 2048 MB more video memory than the R9 360, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 254.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 360, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the R9 360.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 360 (OEM) has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the R9 360 is 685. The RX Vega having 156 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 360.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 360. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 360.

The Radeon R9 360 (OEM) requires 85 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R9 360. The R9 360 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the R9 360 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.Overview
Radeon R9 360 (OEM) is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Tobago PRO which is essentially a cut-down version of the Bonaire XTX GPU previously used on Radeon R7 260X. It offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 360 (OEM) is a cut-down power optimized Radeon R7 260X. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 260X and the weaker Radeon R7 260.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Strong Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 360 (OEM).
