In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9800 XT are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 8370D.

The Radeon HD 8370D has a 348 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon 9800 XT. This results in the Radeon HD 8370D providing 14.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the Radeon HD 8370D supports up to DirectX 11.0.

The Radeon HD 8370D has a 348 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon 9800 XT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 8370D providing 2.8 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 Radeon HD 8370D was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9800 XT, and so the Radeon HD 8370D is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9800 XT when running the latest games.

The Radeon 9800 XT has 256 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8370D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon 9800 XT has 8 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8370D has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9800 XT is 2 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8370D is 54. The Radeon HD 8370D having 52 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 8370D delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9800 XT.

The Radeon HD 8370D transistor size technology is 110 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon 9800 XT. This means that the Radeon HD 8370D is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon 9800 XT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 8370D should consume less power than the Radeon 9800 XT.

The Radeon 9800 XT requires 60 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8370D requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the Radeon 9800 XT and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon HD 8370D. The Radeon HD 8370D requires 5 Watts more than the Radeon 9800 XT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 8370D to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon 9800 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon R300 (introduced August 2002) is the third generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The line features 3D acceleration based upon Direct3D 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R200 design. R300 was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. The processors also include 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. R300 refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. R300 and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI's consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years.
The integrated graphics processor based upon R300 is called Xpress 200.
Radeon HD 8370D is an embedded Graphics Card on the low end Richland APUs like the A4-6300, A4-6320
They offer 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 760MHz, since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 2133MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max boost clock is 844MHz.
