In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8610G.

The GeForce GT 445M has a 57 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the GeForce GT 445M providing 1.4 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 GeForce GT 445M has a 57 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the GeForce GT 445M providing 5.1 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 8610G was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 445M, and so the Radeon HD 8610G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 445M.

The GeForce GT 445M has 3072 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8610G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8610G has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 445M has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 445M is 170. The Radeon HD 8610G having 70 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GT 445M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8610G transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 445M. This means that the Radeon HD 8610G is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 445M.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 445M requires 35 Watts. The GeForce GT 445M requires 10 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8610G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 445M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8610G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8610G is an integrated mobile GPU, first seen on the ultra low-voltage APU A10-5745M, based on the 32nm, Terascale 3 architecture.
It offer 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a DDR3 memory interface of either a 128-bit bus width, if the laptop system RAM's is dual-channelled, or a 64-bit bus width, if not. The central units runs at 533MHz and goes up to 626MHz, in Turbo Mode. The memory clock can operate up to 667MHz, as the max memory supported by the CPU is DDR3-1333.
Its performance depends heavily on whether or not the memory is dual-channelled. Benchmarks put its performance on level with today's middle-class GPUs such as GeForce GT 540M-GeForce GT 630M or Radeon HD 7650M/7670M. Therefore, modern demanding games can be played with medium detail.
Overview
GeForce GT 445M is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first 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 GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 590MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

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 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only identical to a desktop GeForce GT 440 v3.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M.
