Radeon HD 6290 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon HD 6290 is an entry-level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Terascale Architecture.


Architecture
Terascale was AMD's first Unified Shader Architecture. In addition to being manufactured with a 40nm Technology, against the 55nm of previous Graphics Cards, it supports DirectX 10 and the Shaders now called Shader Processing Units have been redesigned and do all the Graphical work of Pixel and Vertex Shaders.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Cedar PRO which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 650MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Eyefinity, Stream Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 250W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
Radeon HD 6290 is a direct re-brand of Radeon HD 5450.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is extremely limited and even the older GeForce GT 220 is still faster.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 2GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 6290.
