In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 710M are marginally better than the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3870.

The GeForce 710M was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD, and so the GeForce 710M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD when running the latest games.

The GeForce 710M has 512 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon HD has 40 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD is noticeably better than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon HD 3870 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 211. The Radeon HD having 62 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run and the Mobility Radeon HD 3870 requires 55 Watts. The Radeon HD requires 40 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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.
The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3000 Series of discrete graphics allow you to experience the power of HD with graphics processing designed for how you work and play. Advance to the next generation of HD game performance and lifelike realism thanks to Microsoft DirectX 10.1 capabilities and PCI Express 2.0 support for fast throughput and superior overall system performance. Watch the latest Blu-ray and HD-DVD videos in full-HD 1080p image resolution off your graphics processor and reduce demands on your CPU. Enjoy breakthrough energy efficiency with superb performance-per-watt delivering exceptional battery life.
