AMD Radeon R7 in A10-7700K APU (Kaveri)

AMD Radeon R7 in A10-7700K

The AMD Radeon R7 Graphics is the name of the GPU in the AMD A10-7700K Kaveri APU. It is an integrated GPU without dedicated graphics memory and is based on the GCN 1.1 (or 2.0) architecture of the Hawaii desktop graphics cards (e.g. R9 290). However, it was altered for HSA use in the APU.

In the AMD A10-7700K, the graphics card offers 384 of the 512 shader cores (6 of the 8 compute cores) with a maximum core clock of 720 MHz. Without load, the R7 clocks at 351 MHz. It supports DirectX 11.2 in hardware, which is a big advantage over the GPUs from the competition (Intel Haswell e.g. 11.1, Nvidia Kepler and Maxwell 11.0).

The gaming performance in our tests was quite similar to the Radeon R7 in the A10-7850K. The missing shaders did not hurt in most of the gaming tests, as the memory bandwidth limits the performance. Compared to the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 (in the Schenker S413), the Radeon R7 is positioned on the same level or slightly below on average. Many current games as of 2014 can be played fluently in medium resolutions and detail settings.

Test system: Asus A88XM-PLUS mainboard, 16 GB DDR3-2133 AMD Gamer memory
