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 8470D.

The GTX 650 has a 310 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8470D. This results in the GTX 650 providing 25.9 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 310 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8470D. This results in the GTX 650 providing 14.6 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 8470D was released less than a year after the GTX 650, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 650 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8470D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8470D has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8470D is 100 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426. The GTX 650 having 326 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 8470D.

The Radeon HD 8470D requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon HD 8470D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8470D is an embedded Graphics Card on the middle-class Richland APU A6-6400K.
They offer 192 Shader Processing Units, 12 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 800MHz, since the GFX 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). Therefore, the max operating memory clock is 933MHz.
Its performance is considerably worse than Intel HD 4600 and only very slightly better than previous Radeon HD 7540D.
GeForce 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.
