In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7690M XT are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8610G.

The HD 7690M XT has a 192 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the HD 7690M XT providing 4.6 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 HD 7690M XT has a 192 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8610G and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 7690M XT providing 1.5 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 less than a year after the HD 7690M XT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 7690M XT has 1024 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 Radeon HD 7690M XT has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7690M XT is 174. The Radeon HD 8610G having 66 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 7690M XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8610G transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 7690M XT. This means that the Radeon HD 8610G is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 7690M XT.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7690M XT requires 25 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 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.
Radeon HD 7690M XT is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

It equips a GPU codenamed Thames XTX which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 725MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance slightly above GeForce GT 555M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7690M XT.
