In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8210G + HD 8570M Dual are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8210G, but the HD 8210G has 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the HD 8210G exhibits a 8.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 710M has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8210G, but the HD 8210G has 4 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the HD 8210G exhibits a 2.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 8210G 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 HD 8210G + HD 8570M Dual and the GeForce 710M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 8210G has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8210G is marginally better than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon HD 8210G + HD 8570M Dual has 458 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8210G is 378 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The HD 8210G having 229 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8210G delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 8210G. This means that the GeForce 710M is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 8210G. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 710M should consume less power than the HD 8210G.

The Radeon HD 8210G + HD 8570M Dual requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The HD 8210G requires 35 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 8210G may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8210G + HD 8570M Dual is a combination of a Radeon 8210G (integrated graphics) with a Radeon HD 8570M (dedicated).
This combination is called Asymmetric CrossFire and can also lead to Micro Stuttering.
Unfortunately, benchmarks indicate the performance is, at times, worse than a single Radeon HD 8570M performing by itself. This is due to poor driver support.
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
