In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 820M 1GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R4 6310.

The Radeon R4 6310 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 820M 1GB, but the GeForce 820M 1GB has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R4 6310. As a result, the GeForce 820M 1GB exhibits a 6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R4 6310. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R4 6310 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 820M 1GB, but the GeForce 820M 1GB has 4 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R4 6310. As a result, the GeForce 820M 1GB exhibits a 3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R4 6310. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R4 6310 was released less than a year after the GeForce 820M 1GB, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce 820M 1GB has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon R4 6310 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R4 6310 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 820M 1GB has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R4 6310 is 67 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 820M 1GB is 183. The GeForce 820M 1GB having 116 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 820M 1GB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R4 6310.

The Radeon R4 6310 requires 15 Watts to run and the GeForce 820M 1GB requires 15 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R4 6310 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A6-6310.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 800MHz, the memory bus-width will be of 64-bit, as the processor only support single channeled RAM. The memory clock runs at up to 933MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 2MB. 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 similar to an integrated Intel HD 4200.
The card is only suited for gaming below 720p and all modern demanding games can be played at least on low settings.
GeForce 820M 1GB is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm Technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF117-N15V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 625MHz and may reach up to 955MHz, in Turbo Mode.
Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

GeForce 820M 1GB is essentially a fast GeForce GT 720M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly above the older GeForce GT 720M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 820M 1GB.
