AMD Radeon HD 7470M technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 7470M

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 7470M sales 7 January 2012. 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 1.8 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. Its power consumption is at 7 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.23 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Interface
PCIe 2.0 x16
 

Memory specs

Parameters of memory installed on the video card - type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
