In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 330.

The HD i7 3770S has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 330, but the GeForce GT 330 has 52 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3770S. As a result, the GeForce GT 330 exhibits a 25.4 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 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 330, but the GeForce GT 330 has 12 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 3770S. As a result, the GeForce GT 330 exhibits a 5.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD i7 3770S. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 3770S was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 330, and so the HD i7 3770S is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 330.

The GeForce GT 330 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.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 330 has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 330 is 140. The GeForce GT 330 having 66 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GT 330 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3770S.

The HD i7 3770S transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 330. This means that the HD i7 3770S is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 330. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3770S should consume less power than the GeForce GT 330.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 330 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 330. The HD i7 3770S requires 2 Watts more than the GeForce GT 330 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 GT 330.

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.

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

Memory
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.

Performance
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.
GeForce GT 330 is a middle-class GFX based on the 2009, 65nm, first-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the G92b Core and offers 112 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 500MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 510MHz.
The number of Shaders cannot be compared to GeForce GT 340 due to being based on a different architecture. It's therefore an underclocked GeForce 8800/9800 GT, equipped with a 128-bit bus and that should perform like GeForce 9600 GSO.
Today's modern demanding games will have to be played at medium settings to achieve fluent frame rates. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
