AMD Radeon HD 7470M: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 7470M


AMD started Radeon HD 7470M sales 7 January 2012. 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 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. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 7 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.54 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
