In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) are massively better than the AMD Radeon R3 5350.

The HD 8740 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R3 5350. This results in the HD 8740 providing 11.2 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 HD 8740 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R3 5350. This results in the HD 8740 providing 8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R3 5350 was released less than a year after the HD 8740, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 8740 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon R3 5350 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R3 5350 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R3 5350 is 50 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8740 is 348. The HD 8740 having 298 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8740 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R3 5350.

The Radeon R3 5350 requires 25 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon R3 5350 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740. The HD 8740 requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon R3 5350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 8740 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R3 5350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R3 5350 is an integrated Graphhics Card on the APU Athlon 5350.
It features a GCN 2.0 Core which offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs and shares the system RAM with the processor. Thus, it can either access a 64-bit or 128-bit memory channel, which will affect considerably its overall performance.
Its performance is very limited and even older modern games have trouble running well.
Overview
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7750 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
