AMD Radeon 530: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon 530

Summary

AMD started Radeon 530 sales 21 March 2017. This is GCN architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of DDR3/GDDR5 memory clocked at 2.25 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 5.36 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
