AMD Radeon R5 M255 technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R5 M255

Summary

AMD started Radeon R5 M255 sales 1 May 2014. This is a GCN architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 4096 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1000 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 16 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.38 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.
