AMD Radeon HD 8280, condenamed Kabini, is a graphics controller integrated into low-end processors from AMD’s Jaguar generation, part of the GCN (Graphics Core Next) architectural family. It was announced in late Q2 of 2013. HD 8280 has 128 shader cores, better known as Radeon cores. They support DirectX 11.1, Pixel Shader 5.0, OpenGL 4.1 and OpenCL 1.2. The controller does not have its own memory, so it shares the main system memory.
Base frequency for all Radeon cores is 450MHz and HD 8280 is not equipped with the Turbo clock functionality, which normally increases performance, if the laptop’s cooling facilities allow for it.
HD 8280 supports a maximum resolution of 2560×1600. Power consumption is lower when compared to NVIDIA and AMD’s discreet solutions, and there is also less heat, since the controller is part of the CPU package.
