AMD Radeon HD 8350G
The AMD Radeon HD 8350G is a processor graphics card in the AMD Richland APUs (A4-5150M). It offers only 128 VLIW4 shader cores (8650G: 384). The 8350G has no dedicated graphics memory, but shares the main memory with the CPU cores.
The integrated UVD3 video decoder 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.
According to the clock rates of 514 - 720 MHz (Turbo), the performance is only a few percent above a Radeon HD 7420G. Thus, the Radeon HD 8350G performs similar to a dedicated Radeon HD 7450M. Modern and demanding games (2013) will be only playable in very low settings and resolutions. Without fast dual-channel memory the performance drops even more.
The shaders of the chip can also be used for general computing.
The APU is manufactured in 32nm and rated at a TDP of 35 watts. This allows the chip to be used in notebooks from 13 to 14 inches or bigger.
