In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 240 v1 are noticeably better than the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop.

The R5 240 has a 475 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the R5 240 providing 17 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 R5 240 has a 475 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the R5 240 providing 5.2 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 Graphics 510 was released over a year more recently than the R5 240, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R5 240.

The R5 240 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R5 240 v1 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the R5 240 is 269 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101. The R5 240 having 168 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R5 240 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 510.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R5 240. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R5 240.

The Radeon R5 240 v1 requires 30 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R5 240 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510. The Graphics 510 requires 17 Watts more than the R5 240 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 510 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R5 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 240 v1 is an OEM Only, Middle-Class Graphics Card, based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Radeon R5 240 v1 equips the GPU Codenamed Oland XT which is a GCN 1.1 GPU and has 6 Compute Units activated, offering 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

The Central Unit is Clocked at 825MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with GDDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Radeon R5 240 v1 is very similar in terms of core configuration to Radeon R7 240 but suffers from a huge memory bottleneck resultant from the 64-bit bus width, against the 128-bit bus width of Radeon R7 240.
As a resultant, it's only suited for 720p gaming and even then it still offers considerably less performance than Radeon R7 240.

System Suggestions
Radeon R5 240 v1 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We Recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
