In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6850M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon HD 6850M has a 142 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the Radeon HD 6850M providing 14.2 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 Radeon HD 6850M has a 142 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the Radeon HD 6850M providing 6.5 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 Radeon HD 6850M, 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 Radeon HD 6850M when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 6850M 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 Radeon HD 6850M has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6850M is 270. The Radeon HD 6850M having 137 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 6850M delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon R6 7300 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 6850M. This means that the Radeon R6 7300 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 6850M.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6850M requires 50 Watts. The Radeon HD 6850M requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 6850M 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 HD 6850M is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Juniper Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6770) and offers 800 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 128-bit memory interface. Though fast GDDR5 is supported, the most common version features standard DDR3 but comes higher clocked. Its central clock runs at 675MHz and the memory clock operates at 800MHz.
Compared to Radeon HD 6850M, its performance is considerably slower due to being paired with standard DDR3 and the power consumption should remain similar since GDDR5 is more energy efficient.
Using a 720p resolution, most of today's games are only playable at medium settings but with very fluent frame rates (45+).
