AMD Radeon HD 7650A: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 7650A

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 7650A sales 5 January 2012 at a recommended price of $262. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop 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 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 33 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.11 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
