In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 7300 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7470M.

The Radeon HD 7470M has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R6 7300, but the Radeon R6 7300 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7470M. As a result, the Radeon R6 7300 exhibits a 6.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 7470M. 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 7470M has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R6 7300, but the Radeon R6 7300 has 4 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7470M. As a result, the Radeon R6 7300 exhibits a 1.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 7470M. 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 a year more recently than the Radeon HD 7470M, and so the Radeon R6 7300 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 7470M.

The Radeon HD 7470M has 512 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 7470M has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7470M is 64. The Radeon R6 7300 having 69 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R6 7300 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7470M.

The Radeon R6 7300 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7470M. This means that the Radeon R6 7300 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7470M.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7470M requires 7 Watts. The Radeon R6 7300 requires 13 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7470M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R6 7300 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7470M.

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.
Overview
Radeon HD 7470M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Seymour XT which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 7W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a GeForce GT 520MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Budget Processor (Intel Celeron Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7470M.
