In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8850M are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7340.

The Radeon HD 8850M has a 102 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7340. This results in the Radeon HD 8850M providing 20.8 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 102 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7340. This results in the Radeon HD 8850M providing 7.9 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 less than a year after the Radeon HD 7340, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7340 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7340 has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is 496 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7340 is 27. The Radeon HD 8850M having 469 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 7340.

The Radeon HD 8850M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7340. This means that the Radeon HD 8850M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7340.

The Radeon HD 8850M requires 45 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7340 requires 18 Watts. The Radeon HD 8850M requires 27 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7340 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 8850M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7340.

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 7340 is an Integrated Graphics Card, on the APU E2-1800 Dual Core 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 Loveland which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 523MHz and goes up to 680MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 667MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus Radeon HD 7340's performance may vary from system to system.

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

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below Intel's HD Graphics 2000.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7340.
