AMD Radeon Sky 500: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon Sky 500 sales 27 March 2013. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 154 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 242 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 19.23 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
