AMD Radeon HD 7470M: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 7470M

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 7470M sales 7 December 2011. This is Terascale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of DDR3/GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 7 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.05 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
