Radeon HD 6530D Review

Radeon HD 6530D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the high-end class GPUS of this Series. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1866 memory type.
The performance, is obviously, limited but demanding games should still be playable from low to medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX version used), while very demanding games might not run at all or might require very reduced settings.
All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.

I want to upgrade this with a low profile HD 7750, HD 7770 or HD 6670 graphic card. I'm running crossfire on a a3620 quad core. Do I just replace the graphic card and it's done? thanks…

For my work computer have this card but of course i try to play as much at work but it can run most 2012 and below games this card is very good for being integrated. i mean shogun 2 runs on this mostly smooth at higher medium with no aa or all that. so my rating is a 5 for this to be truthful

This GPU is not as low-end as a few of these people are claiming. Many DX9 games run extremely well on mid-high to high settings. That much is given. But BioShock Infinite and Black Ops 2, two games which do NOT support DX9, run well on medium to mid-high settings on this GPU at my native resolution. I am speaking directly from experience.

I think that's the HD 6670 you're looking at. However, you could do better than "crossfiring" it with the APU graphics, depending on your budget ;D

Thanks for that Rays. But I've heard reviews that crossfiring it with a 6670 will actually downgrade the performance. Is this true?

Yeah in most cases, you're better off with the integrated GPU working by itself

Lol, this comment thread is old already. I decided not to XFire my APU and instead got a discreet HD 7750, which runs BF4 on low settings fairly smoothly. And yes, you can upgrade the GPU of your pc IF the case can fit it. Probably to the HD 7750 I have. Just get the 1GB GDDR3 one. and a 500W PSU might be fine.

It can run it, but it will run around 30 fps max at absolute minimum settings, I would recommend a discrete graphics card for planetside 2

Yes this runs planetside 2 good on low now if you have good wifi then you could probably get a few more fps on it. Thats what i did i installed a new wifi at my sisters house and it boosted this gpu fairly good

buddy, you sure about your rig? cos the APU is more advanced that the trinity, and it's IGP should be more advanced than HD6530D. possibly you had similar rig like mine, the A6-Llano APU series.

the onboard graphics on this APU were pretty good to play least demanding games but for the demanding game, you should think twice because you will play it in low setting…i play the game that i wrote in my top games with nice fps :)
