In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R5 220.

The HD i7 3770S and the Radeon R5 220 have the same core clock speed of 650 MHz, but the Radeon R5 220 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3770S. As a result, the Radeon R5 220 exhibits a 2.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD i7 3770S. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD i7 3770S and the Radeon R5 220 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R5 220 was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3770S, and so the Radeon R5 220 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD i7 3770S.

The Radeon R5 220 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770S does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R5 220 has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R5 220 is 26. The HD i7 3770S having 48 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 3770S delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R5 220.

The HD i7 3770S transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R5 220. This means that the HD i7 3770S is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R5 220.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the Radeon R5 220 requires 19 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the Radeon R5 220. The HD i7 3770S requires 58 Watts more than the Radeon R5 220 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 3770S may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R5 220.

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 R5 220 is an OEM only, entry-level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Terascale was AMD's first Unified Shader Architecture. In addition to being manufactured with a 40nm Technology, against the 55nm of previous Graphics Cards, it supports DirectX 10 and the Shaders now called Shader Processing Units have been redesigned and do all the Graphical work of Pixel and Vertex Shaders.

It equips a GPU codenamed Cedar PRO which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 650MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.

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

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 250W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Radeon R5 220 is a direct re-brand of Radeon HD 5450.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is extremely limited and even the older GeForce GT 220 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 2GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 220.
