In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1800 Series 256MB are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 8370D.

The Radeon HD 8370D was released over three years more recently than the X1800 Series, 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 X1800 Series when running the latest games.

The X1800 Series 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 Series 256MB has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8370D is 54 and the actual shader performance of the X1800 Series is 5. The Radeon HD 8370D having 49 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8370D delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the X1800 Series.

The Radeon HD 8370D requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X1800 Series 256MB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon HD 8370D and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the X1800 Series. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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 Series 256MB is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon X1800 GTO, Radeon X1800 XL and Radeon X1800 XT whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
