AMD Radeon HD 7500G

The AMD Radeon HD 7500G or HD7500G is a processor graphics card in the Trinity APUs from AMD. It is the slowest version at launch and integrated in the ULV-A6 variants (A6-4455M at launch). It should be based on the VLIW4 architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 desktop series and most likely wont 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 (6900 desktop series architecture) 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.

The performance of the Radeon HD 7500G is similar to a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M or HD Graphics 4000. Modern games of 2013/2014 will only run fluently in very low detail and resolution settings.

The APU is still manufactured in 32nm and in the ULV versions (e.g. A6-4455M) it is aimed at ultrathin subnotebooks.
