In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7540D.

The GTX 650 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7540D. This results in the GTX 650 providing 26.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 650 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7540D. This results in the GTX 650 providing 14.8 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 GTX 650 was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 7540D, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 7540D have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 650 has 50.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7540D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 is much better than the Radeon HD 7540D.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7540D has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7540D is 95. The GTX 650 having 331 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7540D.

The GTX 650 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7540D. This means that the GTX 650 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7540D.

The Radeon HD 7540D requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes overclocked out of the box to 1110MHz and features a custom-designed 10 cm cooler.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this GPU is suitable for medium to high settings on most demanding games but not with extreme resolutions.
Radeon HD 7540D is an embedded GPU on the midle-class Trinity CPU A6-5400K.
Since the GPU doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 1866MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU) meaning the operating memory speed is 933MHz and whether or not it's dual channel, as the bus width can be 64-bit or 128-bit.
Its core-clock is clocked at 760MHz and comes with 192 Shader Processing Units.
Radeon 7560D's performance depends a lot on driver support and varies from game to game in a way games in the same category (demanding, very demanding, etc) can be unplayable at the lowest settings or might run at medium/high settings.
