In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 M240 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M240 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. This results in the Radeon R5 M240 providing 11.6 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 R5 M240 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 710M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R5 M240 providing 1.8 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 R5 M240 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 710M, and so the Radeon R5 M240 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M240 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 710M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon R5 M240 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R5 M240 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R5 M240 is marginally better than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R5 M240 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R5 M240 is 336 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The Radeon R5 M240 having 187 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R5 M240 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon R5 M240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 M240 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the GCN architecture.

Radeon R5 M240 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed Jet XT which is a Second Gen Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU and is identical to the Sun GPU Previously used on the Mobility Radeon HD 8500M Series.
It has 5 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1030MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
The Rated board TDP of Radeon R5 M240 2GB is not known but it should be adequate for small to average sized notebooks.

Radeon R5 M240 2GB is only a tad bit faster than Radeon R5 M230 and thus can offer Performance Similar to NVIDIA's GeForce GT 540M.
Therefore, Radeon R5 M240 2GB doesn't offer very good performance and can only beat Today's Integrated Graphics by a small margin.

System Suggestions
Radeon R5 M240 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce 710M 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-N14M-GL which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz. 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 small laptops.

GeForce GT 710M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 710M.
