In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 3690.

The Radeon HD 3690 has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the Radeon HD 3690 providing 7.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Radeon HD 3690 has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the Radeon HD 3690 providing 9.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 3690, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 3690 when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 3690 has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3690 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 3690 is 214. The Radeon HD 3690 having 113 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 3690 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 510.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 41 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 3690. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 3690.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 3690 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510. The Radeon HD 3690 requires 28 Watts more than the Graphics 510 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 3690 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 510.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 1067MHz.
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 put its performance almost on level with the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon HD 3690 (later called Radeon HD 3830) is a fast-middle-class GPU based on the 55nm, second unified shader architecture, R600.
It's based on the RV670 PRO Core and offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs a 128-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 670MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 830MHz.
It's therefore related to Radeon HD 3800 Series rather than Radeon HD 3600 Series. It can be addressed as a Radeon HD 3850 with half the memory bandwidth.
Under most circumstances, Radeon HD 3690 is expected to offer exactly the same performance as Radeon HD 3850. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
