In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM).

The HD 7750 and the HD 8740 have the same core clock speed of 800 MHz, but the HD 7750 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8740. As a result, the HD 7750 exhibits a 25.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 8740. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7750 and the HD 8740 have the same core clock speed of 800 MHz, but the HD 7750 has 16 more Render Output Units than the HD 8740. As a result, the HD 7750 exhibits a 12.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 8740. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 8740 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7750, and so the HD 8740 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7750.

The Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 7750 has 72 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8740, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7750 is much better than the HD 8740.

The Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 696 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8740 is 348. The HD 7750 having 348 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7750 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8740.

The Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire requires 110 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7750 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740. The HD 7750 requires 55 Watts more than the HD 8740 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7750 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7750 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 7750 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7750 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up around 60% better a single Radeon HD 7750 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single Radeon HD 7750. Expect this combination to draw up to 110 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
Overview
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7750 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
