AMD Radeon HD 8280

The AMD Radeon HD 8280 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card typically paired with AMD Kabini-class APUs (for example, E2-3000). It offers 128 shader cores and two Compute Units based on the GCN architecture and is clocked at 450 MHz with no support for Turbo. The graphics card does not have dedicated VRAM and will access the main memory of the system (up to single-channel DDR3L-1600).

The HD 8280 integrates both UVD 4.2 and VCE 2.0 video encoders. It supports up to two external monitors via VGA, DVI, HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2.

Depending on the benchmark, the performance of the Radeon HD 8280 is slightly below the Intel HD Graphics (Haswell). This is on par with a dedicated Radeon HD 7370M, but is still too slow for most demanding games as of 2013. However, some older and less demanding games should run fluently if the performance of the CPU is sufficient.
