In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 Mobile are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 7520G.

The Radeon HD 7520G was released less than a year after the Graphics 4000, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 7520G and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 7520G and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile are the same, which means the Radeon HD 7520G and the Graphics 4000 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD 7520G has 192 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7520G is 95 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4000 is 86. The Radeon HD 7520G having 9 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 4000 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 7520G requires 35 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 4000 Mobile requires 55 Watts. The Graphics 4000 requires 20 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7520G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 4000 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7520G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7520G is an integrated GPU on the middle-class Trinity CPUs.
It's based on the 32nm Terascale 3 architecture and offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 12 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The memory interface will depend on whether or not the laptop's system RAM is dual channelled (128-bit if so, 64-bit, if not) and the operating memory clock can be up to 800MHz (max speed supported by the CPU). The central unit runs at 496MHz and will go up to 685MHz in Turbo Mode. Expect a TDP of up to 35 Watt.
Its performance is below both Intel HD 4000 Graphics and previous in series - Radeon HD 7500G, despite the naming, due to the lesser Shaders count which proves useful in most of today's modern games.
Most of today's modern games will have to be played at the lowest settings, while extremely demanding games (e.g. Crysis 3) are most likely unplayable.
Intel HD Graphics 4000 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Mobile Ivy Bridge Processors.

The Ivy Bridge GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers Hardware Tessellation, Dedicated L3 Cache and better Video Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 650MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 425M.
