In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R6 7300.

The HD 8650G has a 117 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the HD 8650G providing 18.4 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 HD 8650G has a 117 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the HD 8650G providing 6.1 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 less than a year after the HD 8650G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual and the Radeon R6 7300 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 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8650G, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is marginally better than the HD 8650G.

The Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R6 7300 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8650G is 553 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133. The HD 8650G having 420 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8650G delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R6 7300.

The Radeon R6 7300 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 8650G. This means that the Radeon R6 7300 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 8650G.

The Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts. The HD 8650G requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon R6 7300 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 8650G to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R6 7300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual is a combination of a Radeon 8650G (integrated graphics) with a Radeon HD 8570M (dedicated).
This combination is called Asymmetric CrossFire and can also lead to Micro Stuttering.
Unfortunately, benchmarks indicate the performance is,at times, worse than a single Radeon HD 8570M performing by itself. This is due to poor driver support.
However, on some games the performance did exceed a dedicated GeForce GT 640M.
Radeon 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.
