Radeon R5 235X compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon R5 235X has poor performance. This should be expected only from older dedicated graphics cards, so this graphics card should definitely be avoided if building a system to power modern applications and games. The graphics card is over 3 years old, meaning it is based on aging technologies. The driver support for the AMD Radeon R5 235X is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

At this performance level you would be better off getting a CPU with an integrated GPU, because a dedicated graphics card like the AMD Radeon R5 235X would not be worth the extra investment, and an integrated solution would be much cheaper, produce less heat, and require less power. We would recommend an Intel Iris GPU on one of the latest Intel Haswell processors, such as the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop, or one of AMD's latest APU Family graphics solutions such as the Radeon HD 8670D.

With an effective SPU count of 70, the AMD Radeon R5 235X processes shading and special graphical effects fairly poorly. The GPU is not too power-hungry at 37 Watts, however.
