In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 7300 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 230M.

The Radeon R6 7300 has a 33 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 230M. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 4.8 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 R6 7300 has a 33 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 230M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 0.3 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 over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 230M, and so the Radeon R6 7300 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GT 230M when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 230M has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon R6 7300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R6 7300 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 230M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 230M is 53. The Radeon R6 7300 having 80 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R6 7300 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 230M.

The Radeon R6 7300 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 230M. This means that the Radeon R6 7300 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 230M.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 230M requires 23 Watts. The GeForce GT 230M requires 3 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 230M 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.
GeForce GT 230M is a middle-class level GFX of the 200M Series released by NVIDIA in 2009/2010. The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10.1 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
It's based on the architecture 'GT216', same used on the entry GeForce GT 220 part of the desktop 200 Series. The performance should be lower than the desktop GT 220, due to the lower clock frequencies.
Demanding games should run at low or medium settings, depending on the resolution + DirectX version used. Very demanding games like Metro 2033 might be unplayable even at the lowest settings or only playable at the lowest resolution, which is unbearable, even to the casual gamer. Even old demanding games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare cannot be played at MAX settings smoothly.
