In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M270 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB.

The Radeon R7 M270 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB, but the GeForce 920M 2GB has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 M270. As a result, the GeForce 920M 2GB exhibits a 1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 M270. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R7 M270 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R7 M270 providing 1.2 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 R7 M270, 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 R7 M270.

The Radeon R7 M270 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce 920M 2GB, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon R7 M270 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R7 M270 has 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920M 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 M270 is slightly better than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

Both the Radeon R7 M270 and the GeForce 920M 2GB have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366 and by the Radeon R7 M270 is 366. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R7 M270 requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts. The Radeon R7 M270 requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 M270 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 M270 is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Opal XT which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 725MHz and goes up to 825MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Performance
Radeon R7 M270 should be as fast as Radeon R7 M265 and thus offer Performance similar to GeForce GT 740M.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 M270 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
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.
