AMD Radeon HD 6650M technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6650M

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6650M sales 4 January 2011. This is a TeraScale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.79 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
