In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series are significantly better than the Intel HD i3 3220.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The HD i3 3220 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the HD i3 3220 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The HD 3800 has 512 MB video memory, but the HD i3 3220 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i3 3220 has 6 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i3 3220 is 19 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The HD i3 3220 having 19 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i3 3220 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The HD i3 3220 requires 8 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i3 3220.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i3 3220 is a specific version of the Intel HD 2500 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i3-3220 3.3GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support. Using Tesselation might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with it.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1150MHz, if necessary.
The max memory supported by the CPU is 1600MHz DDR3, therefore the max memory speed is 800MHz.
Benchmarks are yet to become available and so this GPU's rank is subject to change.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
