In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 7300 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon R5 M240.

The Radeon R5 M240 has a 467 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon R6 7300. This results in the Radeon R5 M240 providing 11.2 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 467 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R6 7300 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R5 M240 providing 3.7 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 less than a year after the Radeon R6 7300, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R5 M240 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon R6 7300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Radeon R5 M240 and the Radeon R6 7300 have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Radeon R5 M240 is 336 and by the Radeon R6 7300 is 133. Knowing that the shader performance of the Radeon R5 M240 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 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.
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.
