In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7290.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has a 295 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7290. This results in the GeForce 920M 2GB providing 16.2 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 GeForce 920M 2GB has a 295 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7290. This results in the GeForce 920M 2GB providing 3.5 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 GeForce 920M 2GB was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 7290, and so the GeForce 920M 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 7290.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7290 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 920M 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7290 has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7290 is 16. The GeForce 920M 2GB having 350 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 920M 2GB delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7290.

The GeForce 920M 2GB transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7290. This means that the GeForce 920M 2GB is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7290.

The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7290 requires 9 Watts. The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 16 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7290 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 920M 2GB to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7290.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208-N16V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially clocked at 575MHz and goes up to 954MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce 920M 2GB is essentially a slightly faster GeForce GT 735M and offers more or less comparable performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 920M 2GB.
Overview
Radeon HD 7290 is an Integrated Graphics Card, on the APU C-70, 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 280MHz and goes up to 400MHz, 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 533MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus Radeon HD 7310'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
Radeon HD 7290 is a direct re-brand of Radeon HD 6290.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on level with the older Radeon HD 6290.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7290.
