AMD Radeon HD 6570: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6570

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6570 sales 7 February 2011 at a recommended price of $79. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 900 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 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 40 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.32 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
