AMD Radeon HD 8250

The AMD Radeon HD 8250 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card in the AMD Temash APUs (A6-1450). It has 128 shader cores based on the GCN architecture (two Compute Units) and clocks at 300 to 400 MHz (turbo). The graphics card does not have its own memory, but accesses the main memory of the system (up to single-channel DDR3L-1066).

The 8250 integrates an UVD 4.2 video decoder as well as a VCE 2.0 video encoder. 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 8250 is somewhere between the Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge) and HD Graphics 4000. This is similar to a dedicated Radeon HD 6450M, but usually to slow for modern games. However, some older and less demanding games will run fluently.
