AMD Radeon R5 230

The Radeon R5 230 is a GPU from AMD released in 2014. This chip has a bad gaming score at 0% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon R5 230 has 4 GiB of DDR3 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 10 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 64 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

The performance specs of the Radeon R5 230 are this AMD GPU has a pixel rate of 2 Gigapixels/s, the number of pixels the GPU is capable of outputting every second. Furthermore, it has a texture fill rate of 5 Gigatexels/s, the number of pixels the GPU can renderer per second.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon R5 230 supports up to DirectX 11.2. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

The raw technical specs of the Radeon R5 230 are: 160 total shading units (general purpose parallel cores capable of processing different aspects of the graphics pipeline), 8 texture mapping units (specialised processors for texture operations, this determines the texture rate) and 4 render output processors or units (the final step in the rendering pipeline, responsible for rasterising the image)

Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon R5 230 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 19 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
