ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850: specs and benchmarks

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850


ATI started Mobility Radeon HD 5850 sales 7 January 2010. This is TeraScale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.93 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
