In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 7300 are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon R6 7300 was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3820QM, 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 HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon R6 7300 and the HD i7 3820QM have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R6 7300 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD i7 3820QM, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is slightly better than the HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon R6 7300 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3820QM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3820QM is 51. The Radeon R6 7300 having 82 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R6 7300 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3820QM.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 3820QM.

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.
HD i7 3820QM is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-3820QM 4-Core 2.7GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support though using them might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with them.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1250MHz, if necessary.
The performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 can only be played at the lowest settings. Deus Ex 3, for example, ran fine at high settings but other demanding games such as Crysis 2 and Batman: Arkham City only ran fluently at medium settings.
