AMD Radeon R5

The Radeon R5 is an AMD GPU that was released in September 2017. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 1% in our PC benchmark.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R5 GPU core runs at a frequency of 200 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 900 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon R5 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 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 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 15 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.
