AMD Radeon HD 8330

The AMD Radeon HD 8330 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card typically paired with Kabini-class APUs (for example, the A4-5000). It has 128 shader cores and two Compute Units based on the GCN architecture and is clocked at 500 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 8330 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 8330 is similar to the average Intel HD Graphics 4000. This is on par with a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M, but still too slow for demanding games as of 2013/2014. However, many older and less demanding games will run fluently if the performance of the CPU is sufficient.
