AMD Radeon R2 (Mullins/Beema)

AMD Radeon R2 (Mullins/Beema)

The AMD Radeon R2 is an integrated DirectX 12 graphics card found in some AMD APUs (for example, E1-6010, E2-6110, and E1 Micro-6200T). It offers 128 shader cores across two Compute Units and is based on the GCN architecture. Clock speeds can be up to 300 MHz on a Mullins APU or 500 MHz on a Beema APU. The GPU does not have dedicated VRAM and will access main system memory (depending on the APU: single-channel DDR3L-1066/1333/1600).

Using its UVD (Unified Video Decoder), the GPU can support the CPU when decoding videos up to 4K. In addition, the chip integrates a specialized video encoder called VCE. Video streams can output via VGA, DVI, HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2 to up to two external monitors.

The performance of the Radeon R2 varies greatly between different APUs as there is a very wide range of clock speeds. While the fastest models may reach speeds similar to a Radeon HD 8330, slower versions should offer a performance closer to a Radeon HD 8210. Typically, only older and very undemanding games like World of Warcraft will play fluently at low settings.
