In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 7300 are significantly better than the Intel HD M-5Y31.

The Radeon R6 7300 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD M-5Y31. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 11.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R6 7300 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed and 7 more Render Output Units than the HD M-5Y31. This results in the Radeon R6 7300 providing 4 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 HD M-5Y31 was released less than a year after the Radeon R6 7300, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD M-5Y31 and the Radeon R6 7300 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the HD M-5Y31 and the Radeon R6 7300 are the same, which means the HD M-5Y31 and the Radeon R6 7300 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The HD M-5Y31 has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R6 7300 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD M-5Y31 is 163 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 7300 is 133. The HD M-5Y31 having 30 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R6 7300 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD M-5Y31 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R6 7300. This means that the HD M-5Y31 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R6 7300.

The HD M-5Y31 requires 5 Watts to run and the Radeon R6 7300 requires 20 Watts. The Radeon R6 7300 requires 15 Watts more than the HD M-5Y31 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R6 7300 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD M-5Y31.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD M-5Y31 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 5300 Mobile that is integrated in the Core M-5Y31 Processor.

The Broadwell Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.
The GPU Codenamed GT2 offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 1 ROP.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 850MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 2GB.

Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 420M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD M-5Y31 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon R6 7300 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10-7300.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 533MHz, the memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 800MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Overall, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance superior to a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M or an AMD Radeon R5 M230.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and some modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
