AMD Radeon R5 235
The Radeon R5 235 is a GPU from AMD. This chip has a bad gaming score at 1% in our GPU benchmark.
The Radeon R5 235 has 1 GiB of memory. 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.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R5 235 GPU core runs at a frequency of 775 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R5 235 supports up to DirectX 11. 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.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon R5 235 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 35 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.
