AMD Radeon HD 6530M: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6530M


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 1.8 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. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 26 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.94 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
