In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8730M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8730M, but the Radeon HD 8730M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the Radeon HD 8730M exhibits a 3.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 710M has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8730M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 710M providing 1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 8730M was released less than a year after the GeForce 710M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8730M and the GeForce 710M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon HD 8730M has 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 8730M is slightly better than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon HD 8730M has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8730M is 228 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The Radeon HD 8730M having 79 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8730M delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon HD 8730M requires 15 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8730M is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Mars PRO which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 650MHz and goes up to 700MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for 13" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above NVIDIA's GeForce GT 635M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8730M.
Overview
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.
