In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8850M are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7330M.

The Radeon HD 8850M has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed and 36 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7330M. This results in the Radeon HD 8850M providing 23 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 HD 8850M has a 125 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7330M. This results in the Radeon HD 8850M providing 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 HD 8850M was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 7330M, and so the Radeon HD 8850M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 7330M.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 7330M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon HD 8850M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 19.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7330M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is slightly better than the Radeon HD 7330M.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7330M has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is 496 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7330M is 20. The Radeon HD 8850M having 476 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8850M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7330M.

The Radeon HD 8850M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7330M. This means that the Radeon HD 8850M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7330M.

The Radeon HD 8850M requires 45 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7330M requires 5 Watts. The Radeon HD 8850M requires 40 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7330M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD 8850M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7330M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8850M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Venus PRO which has 10 Compute Units activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 625MHz and goes up to 775MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for 17" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above NVIDIA's GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8850M.
Overview
Radeon HD 733M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Robson LE which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 500MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 7W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with Intel's HD Graphics 2500.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Budget Processor (Intel Celeron Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7330M.
