Six Years Counts For Something

So Azunyan will be showing up tomorrow with any luck, and I was wondering just how her GPU will hold up.  It's a Radeon R7 M270, which is a slightly tweaked R7 M265, and not a very fast chip.  It's roughly in line with AMD's better integrated graphics, or Intel's very best, but with the benefit of having its own 4GB of dedicated RAM, and drivers that work.

But according to this comparison, it delivers 80% of the 3D performance of my recently retired Radeon 4850.  And 80% of the 2D performance of my current Radeon 7950, which has no trouble at all with my 4K desktop monitor.

That's better than I expected.  I played Mass Effect 1 and 2 and Dragon Age (the original, accept no other) on that 4850.  Not at the full 2560x1440 resolution of my monitor of the time, but with full graphics details otherwise.

So at 1280x720 up to maybe 1920x1080, depending on the game, it should be adequate.  I'm going to give Cities: Skylines a try at 4K just to see what it looks like; it's not a graphically taxing game but I still expect it to over-extend the M270.
