AMD Radeon HD 8510G
The AMD Radeon HD 8510G is a processor graphics card in some of the ultra-low voltage AMD Richland APUs (A8-5545M). It offers the full amount of 384 shader cores (VLIW4 architecture) and clocks at 450 - 554 MHz. The 8510G has no dedicated graphics memory, but shares the main memory with the CPU cores.
The integrated video decoder (probably UVD3) 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 AMD, the performance should be similar to the HD 7660G (3DMark 11: P1100). Thus, the Radeon HD 8510G would place on the same level as the dedicated HD 6550M or NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M. Without fast dual-channel memory the performance drops dramatically, however. The shaders of the chip can also be used for general computing.
The APU is manufactured in 32nm and rated at a TDP of 19 watts. This allows the chip to be used in 11-inch notebooks or bigger.
