The only thing I like about this GPU is that it is able to run Mass Effect 3 and similarly aged games at FHD at about 50 fps without demanding much cooling at all. Other than that this GPU is pretty abysmal, as it lags severely even during light loads while displaying simple SolidWorks models or running any game newer than ME3.


Poor

This card has a better performance than radeon 520 , that is the one I'm comparing to. It's a decent low end card for portable devices.


Good

6 months ago.

It was a low-medium end card when it lauched in 2015 and in 2021 it's certainly very low end. Most Xbox 360 and PS3 era games easily run on high-medium graphics at 60 fps, while Xbox One and PS4 era games until 2018 - 2019 run on medium - low settings on 30 fps. Many new games from 2019 barely run or don't run at all. Some exceptions are Resident Evil 2, 3, Monster Hunter Rise, GTA Definitive Edition, but most new games won't work with this GPU.
