In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 7800 GS, and so the HD i7 3770S is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 7800 GS when running the latest games.

The GeForce 7800 GS has 256 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770S does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the HD i7 3770S and the GeForce 7800 GS have 16 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the HD i7 3770S is 74 and by the GeForce 7800 GS is 6. Knowing that the shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the GeForce 7800 GS requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7800 GS. The HD i7 3770S requires 28 Watts more than the GeForce 7800 GS to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 3770S to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 7800 GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 3770S is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop that is Integrated in the Core i7-3770S Processor.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 650MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Frame Buffer: Up to 1.7GB.

Memory Channel: 64-bit Or 128-bit.

Memory Clock: Up to 800MHz.

Memory Bandwidth: It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming Benchmarks Indicate its Performance is Similar to of a Dedicated GeForce GT 620.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 3770S.
