In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 710M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6470M.

The Radeon HD 6470M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 710M, but the GeForce 710M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 6470M. As a result, the GeForce 710M exhibits a 6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 6470M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 6470M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 710M, but the GeForce 710M has 4 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 6470M. As a result, the GeForce 710M exhibits a 3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 6470M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 710M was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 6470M, and so the GeForce 710M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 6470M.

The GeForce 710M and the Radeon HD 6470M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 710M has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6470M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 710M is marginally better than the Radeon HD 6470M.

The GeForce 710M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6470M has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6470M is 64. The GeForce 710M having 85 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 6470M.

The GeForce 710M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 6470M. This means that the GeForce 710M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 6470M.

The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6470M requires 11 Watts. The GeForce 710M requires 4 Watts more than the Radeon HD 6470M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 710M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 6470M.

GPU Mini Review

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

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.

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.

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.

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 6470M is an entry-level GFX based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Caicos Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6450) and offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs on a 64-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. Its central clock runs at up to 800MHz (more commonly 750MHz) and the memory clock operates at 800MHz.
Compared to Radeon HD 6490M, it should perform similar to its DDR3 version and much slower than the GDDR5 variant (the one we have added) due to featuring half the memory bandwidth.
Using a 720p resolution, almost all of today's games are only playable at low settings but with fluent frame rates (30+).
