In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are marginally better than the AMD Radeon X1800 XT.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1800 XT, 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 Radeon X1800 XT when running the latest games.

The Radeon X1800 XT has 512 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 Radeon X1800 XT 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 Radeon X1800 XT 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 Radeon X1800 XT requires 113 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S. The Radeon X1800 XT requires 36 Watts more than the HD i7 3770S to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon X1800 XT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i7 3770S.

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.
Radeon X1800 XT is a performance GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the R520 Core and offers 16 Pixel Shaders, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 700MHz.
Its performance is considerably better than Radeon X1800 XL due to being higher clocked, as is the power consumption.
Most of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to suffice on some. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
