AMD Radeon HD 6530M: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6530M

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6530M sales 26 November 2010. This is Terascale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 800 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-II interface. Power consumption is at 26 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.21 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
