AMD Radeon R5 M420
The Radeon R5 M420 is a GPU from AMD released in 2016. This chip has a bad gaming score at 2% in our GPU benchmark.
It has a total memory bandwidth of 15 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 64 bits.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R5 M420 GPU core runs at a frequency of 780 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 850 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.
The performance specs of the Radeon R5 M420 are this AMD GPU has a pixel rate of 7 Gigapixels/s, the number of pixels the GPU is capable of outputting every second. Furthermore, it has a texture fill rate of 17 Gigatexels/s, the number of pixels the GPU can renderer per second.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R5 M420 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.
The raw technical specs of the Radeon R5 M420 are: 320 total shading units (general purpose parallel cores capable of processing different aspects of the graphics pipeline), 20 texture mapping units (specialised processors for texture operations, this determines the texture rate) and 8 render output processors or units (the final step in the rendering pipeline, responsible for rasterising the image)
