Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5165: Renamed Mobility Radeon HD 4650 with slightly higher clock speed. Therefore, no DirectX 11 support and only slightly faster than a HD 4650.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
