In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M260 v2 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has a 155 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 M260, but the R7 M260 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the R7 M260 exhibits a 2.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 710M has a 155 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 M260 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 710M providing 1.2 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 R7 M260 was released less than a year after the GeForce 710M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R7 M260 has 3072 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 R7 M260 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 M260 has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the R7 M260 is slightly better than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R7 M260 v2 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 M260 is 233 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The R7 M260 having 84 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 M260 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The Radeon R7 M260 v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The R7 M260 requires 20 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R7 M260 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewPLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GRAPHICS CARD HAS 2 VARIANTS: DDR3 + 64-bit AND DDR3 + 128-bit. THIS IS THE DDR3 + 128-bit VARIANT.

Radeon R7 M260 is a middle-class mobile graphics card. It is based on 28nm Mars PRO Core of the GCN 1.1 architecture.

Radeon R7 M260 offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 620MHz and goes up to 715MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz. It has a rated TDP board of around 35W.
This version is better suited for higher resolutions but it will still perform poorly at anything higher than 1080p.
Overview
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

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.

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Features
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.

Performance
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.
