In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8610G are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon HD 8610G was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3820QM, 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 HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon HD 8610G and the HD i7 3820QM have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon HD 8610G has 8.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD i7 3820QM, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is marginally better than the HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon HD 8610G has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3820QM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3820QM is 51. The Radeon HD 8610G having 189 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8610G delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 3820QM.

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.
HD i7 3820QM is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-3820QM 4-Core 2.7GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support though using them might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with them.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1250MHz, if necessary.
The performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 can only be played at the lowest settings. Deus Ex 3, for example, ran fine at high settings but other demanding games such as Crysis 2 and Batman: Arkham City only ran fluently at medium settings.
