AMD Radeon HD 6310

The AMD Radeon HD 6310 (or perhaps also called ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6310) is an integrated graphics card in the Zacate netbook processor. It is based on the same graphics core as the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 but without any dedicated memory. Furthermore, it features the newer UVD3 video processor.

The 3D performance of the HD 6310 should be beneath a HD 4330 due to the missing dedicated graphics memory (shared memory only). Gaming performance should therefore be similar to a Nvidia ION or Intel HD Graphics graphics card. In our tests the 6310 was only able to run low end games like Fifa 11, Sims 3 and Star Craft 2 single player in lowest detail settings fluently. More demanding games like Risen or Call of Duty series were not playable.

Other tests by techreport.comAnandtech.comHothardware.comLegitReviews.com, and PCPer.com on a Zacate prototype showed the following gaming performance:

running fluently

  • Call of Duty 4 - medium details (800x600 low - 61fps)
  • Quake Wars: 1024 Normal Quality: 20.4fps - in lower quality settings it should run fluently
  • Left 4 Dead 2 - 1366x768 medium details playable

playable with stuttering

  • Alien Swarm - 1366x768 low-medium: 15-30fps - playable
  • Call of Duty 6 MW2 - 1024 low 28fps - barely playable?
  • Dragon Age: Origins: 1024x768 low - 22fps - stuttering
  • StarCraft 2: 1366 low - 35fps - playable (no big battles)
  • Dirt 2 - 1366x768 low - 20fps - barely playable

not playable

  • Bioshock 2 - 1024 low - 23 fps
  • Civilization V Benchmark: 1366 low - GPU:7.8fps, CPU:25.4fps
  • Far Cry 2 - lowest Details in 1366x768 nur 16.6 fps
  • Just Cause 2 Demo - 800x600 low 18-20fps

Detailed gaming tests by us can be found further down on this page.

The new UVD3 video decoder allows the decoding of HD videos using the graphics card. It allows the parallel decoding of two MPEG2, H.264 and VC-1 streams and therefore compatible to BD-Live. Furthermore, the new UVD3 also supports DivX, Xvid and MPEG4 Part 2 decoding. Blu-Ray 3D via MCV (Multiview Video Coding) is theoretically supported by the UVD3 but wasn't available in the first laptops and platforms (no hardware accelleration and no HDMI 1.4 output).
