In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7370M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon HD 7370M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8600M GS, and so the Radeon HD 7370M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8600M GS when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 7370M has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8600M GS, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7370M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is marginally better than the Radeon HD 7370M.

The Radeon HD 7370M has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8600M GS has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7370M is 30 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is 10. The Radeon HD 7370M having 20 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 8600M GS performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 7370M transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8600M GS. This means that the Radeon HD 7370M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8600M GS. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 7370M should consume less power than the GeForce 8600M GS.

The Radeon HD 7370M requires 11 Watts to run and the GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts. The GeForce 8600M GS requires 7 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7370M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 8600M GS to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7370M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7370M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Robson XT which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 750MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 7W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with a GeForce GT 415M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Budget Processor (Intel Celeron Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7370M.
GeForce 8600M GS is a middle class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) are most certainly unplayable and demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V) might only be playable on the lowest settings. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, should be playable smoothly at Medium settings.
