AMD Vega M GL Benchmarked: Lots of power from a tiny computer

A mini PC capable of 1920x1080 30fps gaming, and even 60fps in some titles, and that's with FULL DETAILS, not like the 1280x720 medium-high details of the 2400g. You can compare it to the 2400g, but you really can't since it is more akin to a dedicated card since it has its own memory...What's more, this is Intel's kit, this isn't a polished retail product.

TomsHardware backs up that sentiment...Maybe that's why AMD was down for the majority of the day today...

Intel NUC 8 VR (NUC8i7HVK) Review - Tom's Hardware

It's fair to say that the NUC8i7HVK is fast enough to deliver smooth frame rates at 1080p using high-quality settings in most games. If you want to run at a higher resolution or know your favorite games are more demanding than the ones we tested, then you may have to hold out for a return to normalcy with graphics card pricing. Otherwise, The NUC 8 VR's AMD Vega-based GPU comes close to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 in some of the platform-bound situations we discovered (and after overclocking).


Those would be some pretty decent numbers for a console type experience on a tv for pc gaming.  Not bad at all.
