Very good GPU considering its age. Capable of 1080p gaming at medium settings (or even high for competitive games like Overwatch) without issues.


Good

I kinda have like the AMD drivers more, because they are cheaper and function almost the same


Excellent

I've had a laptop with it for 5 years and only now do I really feel the need to replace it. For a mobile GPU it was REALLY GOOD. I've had barely any issues and performance was admirable.

Kinda glitchy. Heats up a lot but with a powerful fan it holds up. After all this time it still is pretty powerful.

It is not as powerful as it was back in 2014
