AMD Radeon R7 in A10-7850K

The AMD Radeon R7 Graphics is the name of the GPU in the AMD A10-7850K 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 A10-7850K, the graphics card offers 512 shader cores (8 compute cores) with a maximum core clock of 720 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 slightly faster than the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 (in the Schenker S413). Depending on the game either one of the GPUs lead, but all in all the R7 was faster in two more games (in March 2014). In most cases, the Radeon R7 is sufficient for a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and medium settings.

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