Radeon HD 7470M Game Requirement Analysis
Radeon HD 7470M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.
It equips a GPU codenamed Seymour XT which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 800MHz.
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.
With a rated board TDP of 7W, it is suited for smaller laptops.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a GeForce GT 520MX.
We recommend a Budget Processor (Intel Celeron Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7470M.
