AMD Radeon R5 (Beema)

AMD Radeon R5 (Beema)

The AMD Radeon R5 is an integrated DirectX 11.2 graphics card found in some AMD Beema APUs (for example, the A8-6410). It offers 128 shader cores across two Compute Units and based on the GCN architecture. Clock speeds can be up to 800 MHz. The graphics card does not have dedicated VRAM and will access main system memory (single-channel DDR3L-1866).

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 R5 is slightly above a Radeon HD 7470M or the Intel HD Graphics 4200. Typically, only older or less demanding games like FIFA will run fluently.
