In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M260 are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon R7 M260 has a 407 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the Radeon R7 M260 providing 9.8 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 Radeon R7 M260 has a 407 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R6 7300 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R7 M260 providing 3.2 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 R6 7300 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 M260, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 M260 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon R6 7300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Radeon R6 7300 and the Radeon R7 M260 have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Radeon R7 M260 is 320 and by the Radeon R6 7300 is 320. Knowing that the shader performance of the Radeon R7 M260 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 M260 requires 35 Watts. The Radeon R7 M260 requires 15 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 M260 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R6 7300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R6 7300 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10-7300.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 533MHz, the memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 800MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Overall, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance superior to a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M or an AMD Radeon R5 M230.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and some modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.

Radeon R7 M260 is a middle-class mobile graphics card. It is based on 28nm Topaz XT Core of the GCN 1.1 architecture.

Radeon R7 M260 offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 940MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1000MHz. It has a rated TDP board of around 35W.

This version is even worse suited for higher resolutions but it is expected to perform better than its 128-bit counterpart at lower resolutions and in certain games. Still, the 128-bit should still be overall slightly faster.
