Review and testing of video cards for laptops AMD Radeon R5 M240: Test | Specs | CPU | Config – The graphics card for notebooks from AMD, codenamed Radeon R5 M240, belongs to the entry-level graphics accelerators. The basis of the video card Radeon R5 M240 is the architecture of 28 nm GCN architecture. AMD Radeon R5 M240 is a budget DirectX 11-compatible graphics card for notebooks based on the Sun chip, the core of which runs at 650-700 MHz, and DDR3 video memory at 900-1800 MHz, while the memory is connected via a 64-bit bus.

The graphics chip Radeon R5 M240 combines 320 shader cores, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, therefore it belongs to the category of budget solutions. The performance of the video card is estimated at 416.0 GFLOPS, while the texture speed reaches 13.0 GTexel / s, and the pixel speed – 5.20 GPixel / s. All 320 shaders can be used with OpenCL 1.2 for general purpose calculations. The performance of the Radeon R5 M240 outperforms Intel’s HD Graphics 4600 and is comparable to the Nvidia GeForce 820M. The gaming performance of the Radeon R5 M240 video card is low, so games released in 2014 will only run freely with low display resolutions and low details.

Supported technologies

ATI PowerPlay Is a dynamic power management technology used in some graphics processing units (GPUs) manufactured by AMD (formerly ATI). The principle of operation is based on tracking the GPU load, determining the optimal parameters and correspondingly changing the clock frequency of the chip, memory and supply voltage, thereby optimizing the power consumption and heat dissipation of the video card. The technology in idle modes can disable unused GPU blocks.

ATI Eyefinity — a technology developed by the American company AMD that allows multiple displays to be connected together to a personal computer. ATI Eyefinity assumes connection from one to six displays inclusive to one graphics card. Desktop duplication and stretching modes are supported across multiple monitors, and a special new feature allows displays to be grouped into one large screen that can display a PC desktop or, for example, video, as well as windowed or full-screen 3D applications.

AMD HD3DThe technology is supported by an extended and open ecosystem that, when combined with specific AMD hardware and software technologies, enables the 3D viewing of many applications and processes on the PC.

AMD Enduro Automatically disables AMD Radeon discrete graphics for lightweight applications and extends battery life.

AMD Zero Core In a deep idle state, the new GPU consumes less than 5% of the power of full-fledged mode, disabling most of the functional blocks in this mode.
