HD 5000 vs Radeon R5 M255 comparison

For gaming, the Radeon R5 M255 graphics card is better than the HD 5000 in our tests.

Our database shows that the Radeon R5 M255 has a significantly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. Despite this, the HD 5000 has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the Radeon R5 M255 over the HD 5000.
