AMD started Radeon HD 6230 sales 2 July 2011. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 1.33 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 10.67 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 19 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at


of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
