AMD Radeon R6 (Mullins)

AMD Radeon R6 (Mullins)

The AMD Radeon R6 is an integrated DirectX 11.2 graphics card found in some AMD APUs (for example, the A10 Micro-6700T). It offers 128 shader cores across two Compute Units and is based on the GCN architecture. Core clock is rated at up to 500 MHz. The GPU does not have dedicated VRAM and will access main system memory (single-channel DDR3L-1333).

Using its UVD (Unified Video Decoder), the GPU can support the CPU when decoding videos up to 4K. The chip also 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 R6 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon HD 8280, as the GPU Boost is limited by the very low TDP. Typically, only older or very undemanding games will play fluently.
