AMD Radeon HD 7560D
The AMD Radeon HD 7560D or HD7560D is a processor graphics card in the desktop Trinity APUs (e.g. A8-5600K) from AMD. It is not the fastest version featuring only 256 of the 384 shader cores. Due to the high clock speed, the performance is however slightly faster than the mobile Radeon HD 7660G that features all 384 shaders. The GPU cores are based on the VLIW4 architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 desktop series and doesn't offer dedicated graphics memory (it uses only the shared main memory).
Trinity got its name due to the fact that it consists out of three different architecture parts. The CPU cores are based on the Piledriver architecture (Bulldozer successor), the GPU cores on Northern Islands GPU cores (6900 desktop series architecture) and the video processing engine and multi-display connectivity from the new Southern Islands GPU architecture (HD 7900 series).
The integrated UVD3 video decoder (Avivo HD) allows the full decoding of Multi-View Codec (MVC), MPEG-4 Part 2 (DivX, xVid), MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and Adobe Flash HD videos.
The performance of the Radeon HD 7560D differs from the used benchmark. In synthetic benchmarks like 3DMark 11 it is slightly faster than it actual games. In our tests it positioned itself slightly above a Radeon HD 7660G and therefore the performance is still better than the average Intel HD Graphics 4000 in the Ivy Bridge Quad-Core models. Many games of 2012/2013 can be played fluently in low or medium settings.
The shaders of the chip can also be used for general computing using OpenCL and DirectCompute 11.
