AMD Radeon HD 8240 vs AMD Radeon HD 8400

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.

The AMD Radeon HD 8400 is an integrated DirectX 11.1 graphics card typically paired with AMD Kabini-class APUs (for example, the A6-5200). It has 128 shader cores and two Compute Units based on the GCN architecture and is clocked at 600 MHz with no support for Turbo. The GPU does not have dedicated VRAM and will access the main memory of the system (up to single-channel DDR3L-1600).

The HD 8400 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 8400 is similar to some faster Intel HD Graphics 4000 models. This is on par with a dedicated Radeon HD 6490M, but is still too slow for a number of demanding games as of 2013/2014. However, many older and less demanding games will run fluently if the performance of the CPU is sufficient.
