AMD Radeon HD 6290: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6290

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6290 sales 4 December 2011. This is TeraScale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 19 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.55 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
