In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 710M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7420G.

The GeForce 710M was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 7420G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce 710M has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7420G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 710M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7420G has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7420G is 61. The GeForce 710M having 88 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 710M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7420G.

The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7420G requires 35 Watts. The Radeon HD 7420G requires 20 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 7420G to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm Technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF117-N14M-GL which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz. Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 710M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 710M.
Radeon HD 7420G is an integrated GPU on the entry-level Trinity CPUs.
It's based on the 32nm Terascale 3 architecture and offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 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 480MHz and will go up to 655MHz 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 7400G, 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.
