AMD Radeon HD 6520G

The AMD Radeon HD 6520G is an integrated processor graphics card for mid-range laptops. It is integrated in the mid-range APUs (A6 Series, e.g. A6-3410MX) and offers 320 of the 400 shader cores clocked at 400MHz. It offers no dedicated graphics memory (shared memory graphics card) and is therefore slower than similar Radeon HD 6000M cards.

The new UVD3 video decoder supports the decoding of MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, Flash and now also Multi-View Codec (MVC) and MPEG-4 part 2 (DivX, xVid) HD videos on the graphics card.

The performance of the Radeon 6520G should be in the entry level class of dedicated graphics cards. According to a benchmark by AMD, the 6480G positions itself between the HD 6370M and the HD 6470M. However, in games it may be a bit slower.
