In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1800 XL are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8370D.

The Radeon HD 8370D was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1800 XL, and so the Radeon HD 8370D is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon X1800 XL when running the latest games.

The Radeon X1800 XL has 256 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8370D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8370D has 128 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1800 XL has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8370D is 54 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1800 XL is 5. The Radeon HD 8370D having 49 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1800 XL performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8370D requires 65 Watts to run and the Radeon X1800 XL requires 70 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon HD 8370D. The Radeon X1800 XL requires 5 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8370D to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon X1800 XL to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8370D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8370D is an embedded Graphics Card on the low end Richland APUs like the A4-6300, A4-6320
They offer 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 760MHz, since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 2133MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max boost clock is 844MHz.
Th graphical performance is not top end by todays integrated graphics standards
Radeon X1800 XL is a performance GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the R520 Core and offers 16 Pixel Shaders, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 500MHz.
Its performance is considerably better than Radeon X1800 GTO thanks to core configuration, as is the power consumption.
Some of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to be used on most. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
