In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 610 MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8370D.

The GT 610 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8370D, but the Radeon HD 8370D has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 610. As a result, the Radeon HD 8370D exhibits a 11.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 610. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 610 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8370D, but the Radeon HD 8370D has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 610. As a result, the Radeon HD 8370D exhibits a 2.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 610. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 8370D was released over a year more recently than the GT 610, and so the Radeon HD 8370D is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 610.

The GT 610 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8370D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 610 MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8370D has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 610 is 78 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8370D is 54. The GT 610 having 24 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 8370D performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 610 MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition requires 29 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8370D requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 610 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon HD 8370D. The Radeon HD 8370D requires 36 Watts more than the GT 610 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD 8370D may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 610.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 610 MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 610, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 500MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 610 MSI Low Profile 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 610.
Radeon HD 8370D is an embedded Graphics Card on the low end Richland APUs like the A4-6300, A4-6320
They offer 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 760MHz, since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 2133MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max boost clock is 844MHz.
Th graphical performance is not top end by todays integrated graphics standards
