AMD Radeon HD 8240 vs AMD Radeon HD 8180

AMD Radeon HD 8240

► remove

The AMD Radeon HD 8240 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card typically paired with AMD Kabini-class APUs (for example, the E1-2500). It offers 128 shader cores and two Compute Units based on the GCN architecture and is clocked at 400 MHz with no support for Turbo. The graphics card does not have dedicated VRAM and will access the main memory of the system (up to single-channel DDR3L-1333).

The HD 8240 integrates both UVD 4.2 and VCE 2.0 video encoders. It supports up to two external monitors via VGA, DVI, HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2.

Depending on the benchmark, the performance of the Radeon HD 8240 is somewhere between the Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge) and HD Graphics 4000 GPUs. This is on par with a dedicated Radeon HD 6450M, but is still too slow for modern games as of 2013. However, some older and less demanding games will run fluently if the performance of the CPU is sufficient.

AMD Radeon HD 8180

► remove

The AMD Radeon HD 8180 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card in some of the AMD Temash APUs (A4-1200). It offers 128 shader cores based on the GCN architecture (two Compute Units) and clocks at 225 MHz (no turbo). The graphics card does not have its own memory, but accesses the main memory of the system (up to single-channel DDR3L-1066).

The HD 8180 integrates an UVD 4.2 video decoder as well as a VCE 2.0 video encoder. It supports up to two external monitors via VGA, DVI, HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2.

Depending on the benchmark, the performance of the Radeon HD 8180 is somewhat below the Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge). This is similar to the old Radeon HD 7310, but usually to slow for modern games. Only a few older and less demanding games might run fluently, if the performance of the CPU part is sufficient.
