AMD Radeon HD 6730M: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6730M

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6730M sales 4 January 2011. This is TeraScale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR3 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 MXM-A (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 5.07 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
