In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8240.

The Radeon HD 8240 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the Radeon HD 8240 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8240 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8240 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8240 is 33 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 87 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 9800M GT delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8240.

The Radeon HD 8240 transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the Radeon HD 8240 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Radeon HD 8240 requires 15 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 50 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8240 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 8240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8240 is an integrated graphics card on some of the Kabini APUs.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and shares the main system memory of up to 667MHz, on a 128-bit memory interface, whereas the memory bandwidth and performance will depend heavily on the laptop configuration.
The codenamed Kalindi Core offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs.
Assuming the best combination possible, expect performance similar to an Intel HD 3000 and never below an Intel HD 2500. Thus, the card is only suited for modest 3D games and titles like BF4, AC4 and CoD: Ghosts are unplayable.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
