The AMD Radeon HD 7480D or HD7480D is a desktop processor graphics card in the Trinity APUs from AMD. It is a cut down version with only 128 of the 384 shaders and integrated in the A4 series APUs. It is based on the VLIW4 architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 series desktop graphics card and doesn't offer a dedicated graphics memory.
Trinity got its name due to the fact that it consists out of three different architecture parts. The CPU cores are based on the Piledriver architecture (Bulldozer successor), the GPU cores on Northern Islands GPU cores (HD 6900 desktop series) and the video processing engine and multi-display connectivity from the new Southern Islands GPU architecture (HD 7900 series).
The integrated UVD3 video decoder (Avivo HD) allows the full decoding of Multi-View Codec (MVC), MPEG-4 Part 2 (DivX, xVid), MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and Adobe Flash HD videos. According to a reader, 2D Blu-Ray playback works fine, but 3D playback is stuttering.
The performance in games is usually compareable to a Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. However, due to the slow CPU part, many games may be CPU bound and therefore offer lower frame rates (e.g. in low resolution and detail settings).
