In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 M230 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M230 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. This results in the Radeon R5 M230 providing 3.2 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 Radeon R5 M230 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 710M, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R5 M230 was released less than a year after the GeForce 710M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R5 M230 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GeForce 710M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon R5 M230 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R5 M230 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R5 M230 is marginally better than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M230 has 320 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R5 M230 is 233 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The Radeon R5 M230 having 84 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R5 M230 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M230 requires 20 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The Radeon R5 M230 requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R5 M230 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R5 M230 is an entry-level graphics card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next architecture.
It offers a core codenamed Sun that packs 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 780MHz and goes up to 855MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1000MHz. The regular version should offer 2GB of video memory but expect to see gimmicks of up to 4GB.
Technically R5 M230 is just a higher-clocked Radeon HD 8570M. Due to its very limited performance, even Intel's Iris Graphics Will offer better performance and so it ends up being an useless acquisition.
Overview
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second 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 GF117-N14M-GL which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz. Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

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 15W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 710M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 710M.
